  • ASTM D4417 - 11 standard test methods for field measurement of surface profile of blast cleaned steel

    The height of surface profile has been shown to be a factor in the performance of various coatings applied to steel. For this reason, surface profile should be measured prior to coating application to ensure that it meets that specified. The instruments described are readily portable and sufficiently sturdy for use in the field. Note 1—Optical microscope methods serve as a referee ...

  • Air Monitors launches nanoparticle detector

    Traditional methods for measuring airborne particulate matter measure particle mass per unit air volume, usually with an upper size limit of x microns (PMx etc.). However, from a human health perspective, the particles of most interest are those that penetrate deep into the lungs. For this reason, Air Monitors has launched the Naneos Partector nanoparticle detector in the UK. The Swiss made ...

  • Low energy water purification enabled by nanomaterial-coated sponges

    A low cost, low energy method to disinfect water using electricity has been developed by researchers by combining carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and silver nano-wires with existing materials. The technology has the potential to be used in portable disinfection devices in developing countries. Globally, an estimated 1.3 million children under five die every year from diarrhoeal diseases. Many of these ...

  • Small-scale desalination

    A new approach to desalination being developed by researchers at MIT and in Korea could lead to small, portable desalination units that could be powered by solar cells or batteries. As well as removing many contaminants, these units could deliver enough fresh water to supply the needs of a family or small village. The new approach, called ion concentration polarisation, is described in a paper ...

  • A system that’s worth its salt

    New approach to water desalination could lead to small, portable units that could be sent to disaster sites or remote locations. Potable water is often in high demand and short supply following a natural disaster like the Haiti earthquake or Hurricane Katrina. In both of those instances, the disaster zones were near the sea, but converting salty seawater to potable fresh water usually requires a ...
