H2 and HF combined analyser

H2 and HF measurement in the same instrument

Twin TDL analyser measuring HF and H2 for Lithium Ion battery safety testing

Our customer was looking for a unique combination of measurements to provide insight into the hazard potentials of fires that involved Lithium Ion batteries. Evolution of hydrogen could present a fire or explosion risk and they are right to be concerned over levels of HF due to its extreme toxity and reactivity.

After consultation with our esteemed principal Airoptic and deep discussion with the customer, the solution was to provide an extractive Tunable Diode Laser analyser, with twin lasers and a common gas cell, all wrapped up in a neat 19″ enclosure.

GasEyeTM Extractive is a laser spectrometer that uses single line molecular absorption spectroscopy. A semiconductor laser emits a beam of infrared light which passes through the process and impinges the detector on the receiver side. When the target gas is present the light intensity changes and this can be used to determine the concentration of the measured specimen. The wavelength of the radiation emitted by the laser is chosen to match the specific gas absorption wavelength. The laser continuously scans this single absorption line with a very high spectral resolution. The measurement is very selective due to narrow band nature of the laser light.

FPT welcomes Winkler

FPT has developed a solid 2-way relationship with Winkler, feeding back the market’s requirements, providing suggestions for product improvements, and also sharing successes – FPT will discuss your application in detail, help specify beneficial product variants, and also work with their other suppliers to provide a considered total solution.

In the world of low-concentration monitoring (ppb to ppm), emissions monitoring, and engine testing, it is vital to have reliable, continuous heating of sample lines and no cold spots where components can condense and escape measurement. Where poor heating, and bad connections with probes, analysers, or other lines risk invalidating expensive measurements, quite literally “cold spots cost”.  By choosing Winkler lines, connections, and other heating solutions, you can put your mind at rest that you have given the best chance to succeed with your measurements.

Let’s start with a focus on the Winkler “Quick-Lock” system….

Connection system “Quick-Lock”

For quick assembly of heated lines. Used at dynamometer and engine test beds for carriage of measuring gas into the analysing room safe and conforming to standards.

  • Rugged structure made of high-quality materials. The system is designed for sustained operating temperatures of up to 200°C.
  • Seamless (conforming to standards) heating without cold spots between the wall bushing and the heated line and the heated line coupling

UKAS accredited stack testing company chooses iFiD-mobile for TOC measurement

UK stack testing company has chosen the Testa iFiD-mobile transportable TOC analyser as part of major upgrade to monitoring fleet. The UK Environment Agency has confirmed that the transportable emissions monitors (T-CEMs) certified to EN15267-4 should be used by accredited stack testing companies where they are available. The commitment to gain EN15267-4 certification is considerable – involving extensive and exacting laboratory tests and also on-site testing at 5 different industrial processes.

Stack testers now adopt the TESTA iFiD-mobile as their instrument of choice

EN15267-4 MCERTS certification for the iFiD – mobile

The iFiD-mobile can now be offered with MCERTS certification to EN15267-4, BAT for mobile TOC emissions measurement.

The manufacturer Testa GmbH has invested heavily in product certification in recent years. Their strategy was to aim for the highest level of certification possible for the class of analysers and have engaged TUV-Sud as the certifying body. The process has taken a lot of time and effort and has now successfully come to a conclusion resulting in certification to EN15267-3 for fixed CEMS solutions, and now EN15267-4 for transportable emissions monitoring applications. As well as the recently MCERTS certified iFiD-rack, the iFiD-mobile now has its own MCERTS certificate (click link to view full certificate)

The EN15267-4 certification process comprises of extensive laboratory trials followed by field testing on 5 different types of industrial site in order to fully determine robustness and suitability as a truly transportable and universal device.

Real time particulate measurement – PM size and concentration in a single instrument

Exposure to dust in the workplace can sow the seed for the development of long-term debilitating and life shortening health conditions, such as silicosis, emphysema and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Different types, sizes and exposure levels of dusts can cause different effects – on human health and on value of plant assets. The presence of certain fractions of dust can also point to malfunctions of parts of processes designed to exclude escaping dust.

In a simple to install, wall-mounted box, the Air XD gives the operator an instantaneous and continuous snapshot of the dust profile of a workplace location.
