    Water monitoring technology for coastal & estuary

    Measurement of water quality in coastal regions and estuaries is critical in the characterization of hypoxic ‘dead zones’ as a result of nutrient loading and algal blooms in the water bodies. Sediment loading analysis through turbidity measurement is also important for coastal trend identification and modeling. Hydrolab and Sea-bird Coastal offer a variety of multiparameter water quality instrumentation and nutrient sensors for long-term coastal applications.

    Gas monitoring instruments and systems for fumigation

    Sea cargo containers and wooden packing materials are fumigated to control the spreading of pest animals and micro-organisms. Fumigant gases are toxic and measurements are carried out as a health and safety precaution. Measurements are required by e.g. customs inspectors prior to opening containers, making the shipping companies responsible for carrying out measurements. Products shipped in containers may release VOCs from e.g. solvents and glues used in manufacturing process. The concentrations of vapors may...

    Instruments and analyzers for solar radiation measurements in PV applications

    Solar radiation is not only the driving force behind the Earth’s weather phenomena, it also drives photovoltaic energy production. One day of solar energy received by the Earth exceeds the amount of worldwide energy consumption per year. Exploring this merely inexhaustible source of energy - either by direct transformation of radiant energy into electricity or by indirect energy production via wind, waves, etc. - seems to be the obvious way to go. In this context solar radiation measurements are of...

    Meteorological sensors for hydro-meteorology

    Climate change makes for more extreme weather. The main reasons for this are wind and precipitation.That is why an increasing number of meteorological and hydrological monitoring networks are coming together. Global coverage with hydro-meteorological measuring technology is varied. Very old and very modern (new) measuring networks are used for climate monitoring worldwide. And there are still large gaps, for example on the oceans.

    Mercury monitoring for ocean cruises

    Researchers at Battelle Pacific Northwest Laboratory used a Tekran 2600 on a 2009 ship cruise. Due to the low levels of mercury in water, Tekran provided them with a custom 2600 Event Table to pre-concentrate mercury from multiple samples to push the detection limit lower. When planning an ocean bound cruise, instrument dependability is a paramount concern. At sea, there is no possibility to return instrumentation to the manufacturer for quick repair. The Tekran 2600 has a well deserved reputation for dependabil...

    Machine condition monitoring for marine

    Overview

    Machine condition monitoring based on oil analysis has become an important, if not mandatory, maintenance practice by the marine industry. An effective oil analysis program will keep important assets such as engines, gearboxes, hydraulic systems, turbines, compressors, generators and any other oil-wetted machinery in operation by reducing unexpected failures and costly unscheduled down time.

  • Monitoring of Algal Production / Monitoring of Algae Growth

    Over the past 20 years active fluorescence has been widely adopted by the scientific community, ecosystem managers and crop growers as a rapid and non-invasive method of estimating photosynthetic performance within a wide range of organisms, including phytoplankton (microalgae and cyanobacteria), biofilms, benthic autotrophs (corals, macroalgae and sea grasses) and terrestrial plants. The main rational for applying active fluorescence is that changes in key fluorescence parameters can reveal the early onset of...

  • Instrumentation technologies for marine

    When ships discharge their bilge water the maximum level of hydrocarbons in the water is regulated by various Environmental Protection Agencies, for example there is a limit of 15ppm enforced by the IMO (International Maritime Organisation) in all international waters.  Companies breaching these limits are liable to significant fines. Further regulations have been introduced to control the use of bunker fuels. The Marine Environment Protection Committee (MEPC) of the IMO has approved...
