Remote Gas Analysis

  • PDF

altSpecific controllers and analysers are installed to perform a continuous emission monitoring (CEM) of chimney emissions, to detect the release of dangerous gases, or to analyse ambient air quality.

Gas analysis data from different locations can be wirelessly transmitted to a central location, eliminating the need for installing cables.

Wireless Gas Detection Sensors - Ideal for Mobile Applications

  • PDF

altDetcon’s (USA) rugged new CXT-Series wireless gas detection sensors are designed for use in heavy industrial environments and especially suitable for mobile applications. These “environmentally bulletproof” field devices include fully encapsulated sensor electronics housed in a stainless steel enclosure, thereby eliminating potential damage that may be caused from water ingress.

The CXT is equipped with one of two sensor technologies - electrochemical to monitor toxic gases, and infra-red for combustible hydrocarbons. Power is supplied by a rechargeable Smart Battery Pack or disposable battery options. When powered by the Smart Battery Pack, infra-red sensors can work continuously for more than six months, and indefinitely with accompanying solar panels.

Research Reveals Lack of Confidence in Gas-Monitoring

  • PDF

altThe findings of industry-wide research into gas detection in the workplace were recently announced, revealing a number of alarming gas safety concerns. The research demonstrated the lack of confidence in their current gas detection systems amongst the higher level within an organisation – only 32% of managers are very confident that the gas detectors in their workplace actually work. Additionally, despite the fact that frequency of gas detectors testing was ranked as the most important factor in ensuring workplace safety, only two in five managers believe that their gas detectors are not tested regularly enough. The research therefore reveals a lack of consistency regarding what constitutes a reliable gas detection set-up.

The research, carried out by third party researchers, was commissioned by the specialist electrochemical-sensor manufacturer Analytical Technology Inc (UK) in response to expressed concerns in the water/utility industry about methods of safe gas detection. A total of 100 people were interviewed working in six different industries, namely food and beverage manufacturing, pharmaceutical manufacturing, petrochemical, water/utility, metal plating/printed circuit board manufacturing and healthcare. Within these industries the employees interviewed were from a range of job titles at managerial level (plant and facility managers, project managers and health and safety managers) and at workforce level (factory/shop floor workers, engineers, machine operators, instrument technicians/engineers and service engineers).

Easy and Fast Analysis

  • PDF

altThe company MLE GmbH (Germany) provides a flexible, automated analysis system, developed for the water and environmental analysis industries. It works with standard photometric determination methods (ISO). The application of flow injection analysis (FIA) allows low reagent consumption, short analysis times and is suitable for large sample throughput (as a multi-channel system, shown in the picture) and also for smaller sample series (as single channel system).

The modular design allows the offering of customised configurations, which are adapted to the tasks of your facility and can be used in routine analysis and research laboratories.

Leading Trade Fair for Environmental Technology Returns to its Original Name

  • PDF

altAfter two events held under the name of IFAT ENTSORGA, the leading trade fair for environmental technologies is returning to its original name of IFAT. Eugen Egetenmeir, Managing Director of Messe München GmbH (Germany), explains: "The name ENTSORGA was included in the show’s title in 2010, to communicate to the sector the fact that this event was moving from Cologne to Munich. That message has now been understood, and so we are going back to our original, succinct name of IFAT."

As well as the name change, IFAT is also adopting a new claim – "resources. innovations. solutions." This sums up the spectrum covered by the fair and its orientation. The areas of water/waste water and waste/secondary raw materials now come under the overarching term of "resources". IFAT’s brand identity is also transported visually in a new and sophisticated key visual.
