Alternative Fuels and Oil

Renewable energy sources continue to evolve as society strives to curtail its reliance on fossil fuels. Many of these alternative fuels require precise measurements for gage, absolute, and compound pressures in potentially corrosive environments. Capacitive sensing technology is built to measure a variety of pressure types and keep up with the demands of renewable energy applications. Renewable energy encompasses a wide variety of fuels, including CNG, LNG, hydrogen, and wind.

Particle Counter Manufacturing Standards

To be safe for use in a cleanroom or other critical environment, particle counters must meet certain ISO specifications. ISO 21501-4 is specifically designed for light scattering airborne particle counters. Manufacturers must tightly control the size, shape, and refractivity of particles when calibrating particle counters to meet this specification.

Best Practices For Isolation Safety

One of the greatest fears in the general population is the rapid spread of infectious disease. While there are many strategies employed to prevent these infectious diseases from becoming an outbreak, the only way to treat patients without risking the spread of disease is through the use of isolation rooms. Isolation rooms are designed to prevent contaminated particles from spreading beyond a quarantined area by ensuring air is exhausted from the room and filtered through a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter before it is vented outside of the building.

Manufacturers Increasingly Adopt ISO Standards

OEM and mechanical parts suppliers adopting ISO Standards is increasingly common throughout the US, driven by a spike in industry demand for components manufactured in ISO compliant factories. In addition to existing and increasing demand for ISO compliance in clean rooms, healthcare spaces, and laboratories, manufacturing facilities like automotive, electronics, loT, and industrial are now adapting to observe these standards. To be ISO compliant, all of these spaces need highly accurate, reliable, and NIST-traceable sensors for monitoring.
