  • Level Sensors Market in water and waste water management

    Level measurement is a very basic process used across several industrial segments. Due to advancement in level sensing technologies, level sensors are expected to show proper growth during the forecast period. The market has entered into a transition from contact type of measurement to non-contact type of measurement over the past five years. Though the current market is dominated by contact ...


  • Product Focus: Floating Oil on Water Sensor

    Oil contamination in any watercourse can have a profound effect on the environment, as well as the way in which water is treated. If visible oil manages to slip into a river, local wildlife can feel the impact. In an extreme scenario, floating oil can influence the food chain and can kill a host of animals and plants, even if the pollution is in a small quantity. Meanwhile, ...

  • Cheap paper nano-sensor detects water toxins

    Scientists have used nanotechnology to turn paper into a sensor that can detect toxins in drinking water. The China–US team dipped normal filter paper into a solution containing carbon nanotubes — which can conduct electricity — and antibodies to microcystin-LR, a common and dangerous toxin. They dried the paper and repeated the process until enough nanotubes were present to render it ...

  • Ultrasonic water level sensors monitor flooding in the Philippines

    A variety of factors make the Philippines, and especially the Manila region, among the most flood prone in the world. Tropical rains flow rapidly from mountain uplands to the Manila basin where dense urbanization accelerates run-off. To make matters worse, Manila is built on lowlands that are getting lower due to ground water extraction and the weight of urban concrete and steel. As a result, ...
