Trace Level Monitoring - Ambient Calibration

Posted by Rachel Stansel on Thu, Nov 30, 2017 @ 11:56 AM

More and more, we are talking about trace level ambient monitoring.  This monitoring is in line with the measurement objectives of NCORE which is part of the Ambient Monitoring Technology Information Center of the US EPA.  According to the EPA website, "NCore is a multi pollutant network that integrates several advanced measurement systems for particles, pollutant gases and meteorology. Most NCore stations have been operating since the formal start of the network on January 1, 2011." The measurement standards, as set it 40 CFR Part 58 Appendix A, are:

Troubleshooting the Series 4000/4020/4040 - No/Low Flow Issues

Posted by Rachel Stansel on Thu, Sep 28, 2017 @ 10:51 AM

The EnvironicsĀ® Model 4000 are a trio of units that can automatically mixes up to seven individual gases in a balance gas or dilute up to 10,000:1 (or higher, dependent on your setup). The gas mixes can be used in generating precise gas calibration standards, creating gaseous atmospheres or producing gas mixes for analytical research or production purposes. The units can produce gas concentrations from percent to ppb levels for single or multi-point calibration, allowing you to use fewer cylinders.

In the News : Hypoxia Training with the Reduced Oxygen Breathing Device

Posted by Rachel Stansel on Tue, Aug 01, 2017 @ 11:24 AM

Several Air Force bases in the United States have recently unveiled their new Reduced Oxygen Breathing Devices (ROBD). The ROBD simulates altitude exposure and can be utilized for both research and training purposes. The U. S. Armed Forces use the ROBD 2 to train aircrew to recognize the signs and symptoms of hypoxia and to perform the appropriate emergency procedures. Congratulations to these sites on their new facilities!
