  • Using carbon nanotubes to detect nitric oxide

    Source: 'The rational design of nitric oxide selectivity in single-walled carbon nanotube near infrared fluorescence sensors for biological detection'Jong-Ho Kim et alNature Chemistry Results: A new carbon nanotube sensor developed at MIT is the first sensor that can reversibly detect nitric oxide, a gas that cells commonly use to communicate with each other. Because the nitric oxide-carbon ...

  • Fretting Corrosion Causes Recall of Drug Delivery Medical Device

    This past November, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced a Class 1 recall of the Ikaria INOmax DS Drug Delivery System. The device is a drug delivery system used with ventilators to deliver a preset concentration of INOmax therapy gas (nitric oxide for inhalation) for critically ill patients. According to the FDA posting regarding the recall, “Fretting corrosion at the ...

  • New insight into improving air quality measurements

    Researchers from the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and King's College London have identified a mechanism which is responsible for under-reporting of peak nitrogen dioxide concentrations at some air quality monitoring stations, and the best ways to minimise this. Nitrogen dioxide (NO2) is an air pollutant formed when fuels are burned, for example, in car engines, domestic boilers and power ...

  • Monitoring Ship Engine Emissions With Opsis M800

    The special operating conditions on-board ships call for special measures to comply with regulations and expectations. The OPSIS System M800 has become a success and is installed on many ships around the world today, monitoring sulfur dioxide, carbon dioxide and/or nitric oxides from marine engines emissions. Now, we are pleased to present a new video that explains the monitoring of ship engine ...

  • Proficiency Testing Scheme for Gas Analysis: Nitric oxide

    Nitric oxide is used in the production industry (chemical, pharmaceutical, automotive, etc.), as well in environmental emission monitoring, industrial hygiene monitors and trace impurity analyzers. Also, nitric oxide is one of the major components for air pollution from combustion processes, and is emitted by cars, factories and home fuel burning. Correct determination of nitric oxide is ...

  • IFAT CHINA 2008: Tracking Down Pollutants

    Sources of pollutants can only be discovered and processes made more environmentally compatible using a reliable data. There is an enormous need for setting up corresponding measurement stations in China. The environment trade fair IFAT CHINA in Shanghai from 23 to 25 September 2008 provides international manufacturers with the chance to become familiar with the (in part) difficult framework ...

  • Ozone levels still pose risk to health and vegetation

    Peak levels of ozone pollution have fallen at rural and urban sites in both Europe and the US in recent years, a new study shows. However, the research also found that limits to protect health and ecosystems are still being exceeded. After particulate matter, ground-level ozone is considered to be the second most important air pollutant in terms of its effects on human health. However, its ...

  • New Product Alert – VICONOX NO2, NO, CO and Visibility Monitor

    More and more modern vehicles emit less and less CO so there is a growing international requirement to measure the level of both CO and NO/NO2 in road tunnels. The VICONOX provides an elegant solution to these requirements by measuring NO2, NO, CO, visibility and temperature within a single sensor. Designed specifically for use in tunnels, the VICONOX tunnel monitor uses a combination of ...

  • Air Quality Monitoring contributes to reduce traffic pollution in Chester, UK

    According to the World Health Organization, air pollution is causing around 467,000 premature deaths in Europe every year. Cities around the world are committed to improving air quality by drastically reducing the main contributor: road traffic. In most of the cases, drastic measures are being taken by capitals like London, Paris or Madrid forbidding private cars usage on given days or during ...

  • Hired emissions analyser checks gas rig in Burma

    Following the installation of a turbine on a natural gas rig off the coast of Burma, it was necessary for Siemens Industrial Turbomachinery Ltd (SITL) to analyse emissions from the turbine and a hired Testo 350 XL emissions analyser from Ashtead Technology proved ideal for the application. Based in Lincoln, SITL designs, manufactures, installs and provides life time support for gas turbines used ...
