Portable Particulate Sensor (PM2.5/PM10) From Aeroqual

We are excited to announce the release of a portable particulate monitor.  For more than a decade the Aeroqual portable monitor range has been trusted for accurate and affordable measurement of gaseous pollutants.  Now you can use the very same Series 200/300/500 monitors to measure particulate matter (PM) too, thanks to the introduction of the PM2.5 & PM10 sensor head. What do they measure? The portable particulate sensor measures: Particles 2.5 microns and less (PM2.5) Particles 10 microns and less (PM10) The PM sensor head plugs into Aeroqual's existing range of Series 200/300/500…Read more

What’s Best for Measuring Ozone, Electrochemical Sensors or HMOS?

Electrochemical sensors and heated metal oxide sensors (HMOS) are the two leading technologies for low cost measurement of ozone.  Both sensor types have strengths and weaknesses which we will outline here.  Then we will discuss which sensor type is suited to some common applications. Ozone (O3) is an important gas in industrial applications, ground-level pollution monitoring, and atmospheric studies.  The best known method for ozone measurement has been to use an analyzer based on the ultra violet absorption principle.  Despite significant cost reductions in recent years an ozone analyzer remains an expensive piece…Read more

Sewerin OD4 Bump Testing

The Sewerin EX-TEC OD 4 is the ideal tool for measuring mercaptan concentrations in natural gas.  With proper care and regular maintenance, you can expect accurate measurements for a long time to come. As an addendum to the EX-TEC OD 4 Operating Manual, Sewerin recommends that before any field use of the EX-TEC OD 4, it must be calibrate (or bump tested) with a known concentration of Mercaptan, Figure 1.  This is recommended on the same day before a sampling of natural gas is taken when you conduct your field work.  By doing…Read more

Enerac Case Study: Metal Treating Inc.

Below you will find a testimonial for the Enerac products, submitted by a Master Mechanic for Metal Treating Inc., a Commercial Heat Treater in Cincinnati, Ohio.  They are both ISO 9000 and NADCAP approved.  They are proud to say "some of the worlds finest tools and parts are heat treated in their shop".  In order for them to make this claim, they must provide consistent and repeatable results from their furnaces.  Their customers know tht if they send in a batch of parts one week and another batch of identical parts next week…Read more

Introducing the Enerac 500 Gas Analyzer

Cameron Instruments is excited to announce that we have partnered with Enerac, leaders in the manufacturing of combustion gas analyzers.  Enerac invented the first electronic portable multi-parameter combustion gas analyzer in 1979 (in the U.S.A.).  They still service this analyzer today as well as all other units manufactured by Enerac.  The Enerac Model 500 is a low-cost, easy to use (no technical expertise needed, etc.) portable combustion efficiency emissions gas analyzer. The Enerac 500 gas analyzer is perfect for both determining the efficiency of a combustion source as well as collecting advanced emissions…Read more

Versatile Differential Pressure Gauges & Switches

Orange Research differential pressure gauges are designed to measure the difference in pressure between two points in a system and present the resultant differential pressure directly on a single gauge dial.  A magnetic movement allows the simultaneous sensing of both pressures while completely isolating the differential pressure gauge function from the pressure chamber without the use of mechanical seals.  They strive to offer an extensive variety of options for their standard products.  From lens materials to special seals (Teflon & Viton, plus pressure ranges, custom dials, port sizes and much more - Orange…Read more
