These systems come with catalytic or electrochemical sensors to monitor for methane, chlorine, hydrogen sulfide and oxygen deficiency. They have a stand-alone design with built-in alarms and relays, automatic zero and span calibration, standard 4-20mA and RS485 Modbus digital ports, remote access and adjustment features, and a full-featured display with status indicators. They are made for monitoring pump rooms, screen chambers, wet wells, grit pump and wash areas, chlorine storage and metering area, and other work areas in wastewater treatment plants.
For decades, engineers have worked to combat erosion by developing high-strength alloys, composites, and surface coatings. However, in a new paper, a team at Jilin University in China turned to one of the most deadly animals in the world for inspiration -- the yellow fat-backed scorpion.
Green energy is being billed as a way to make communities that are energy deprived more self-sustaining. So it makes sense to use natural materials to create devices that harvest this type of energy. That’s the idea behind a hybrid wind/solar energy harvester made of bamboo that’s been developed by UVM researchers.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
