Sensorex Adds the UVT-LED Monitor to Water Instrumentation Offerings.

Portable, highly efficient UV-C LED monitor now available exclusively from Sensorex.

Sensorex is now the sole supplier of the UVT-LED Transmittance Monitor, formerly known as the PearlSense T254. The UVT-LED is the first instrument of its kind to use highly efficient UV-C LED technology. The compact monitor delivers fast, accurate transmittance readings in the field, water treatment facilities or industrial settings.

Transmittance measurement with the UVT-LED ensures proper UV dosing and efficient operation. The use of mercury free UV-C LED bulbs results in a compact design, easily used as either a handheld portable meter or an in-process instrument. The LED light source is ready for instant operation with zero warm up time. Capable of battery and solar-powered operation, the UVT-LED offers long lamp life with little maintenance and low operating costs.

Simple to operate, with a clear backlit LED display, the UVT-LED takes automatic measurements every 60 seconds. Integrated wiping prevents fouling and build-up in all water conditions, with a self-calibration check to ensure continual accuracy. The handheld model comes with battery power and convenient carrying case for use in the field and lab. The continuous model for in process use runs on 24 VDC power, and can be used in an open channel configuration or directly in a pressurized pipe. The ultra-small instrument is ideal for retrofit installations.

UV transmittance values are used to track changes in water quality, as well as detecting the presence of organic compounds and other issues. From municipal water treatment facilities to food and beverage applications, consistently accurate measurements can save energy and ultimately provide superior water quality.

Castell launches new heavy-duty access interlocks to protect workers in heavy industries

– AI-HD and AIE-HD withstand high potential loads and high frequency of use

Industrial safety specialist Castell has launched heavy-duty access interlocks for use in industries such as waste and recycling, aggregates, steel and chemical processing. The AI-HD and AIE-HD have been designed to deliver robust performance where there are high potential loads and a high frequency of use.

The risks to personnel safety in harsh environments can be increased due to the heavy wear placed on safety components. The UK’s HSE recently reported that the construction industry in particular, while accounting for only around five per cent of Britain’s employees, still accounted for 31 per cent of fatal injuries to employees and 10 per cent of reported major or specified injuries.

Recognising these issues, Castell examined how it could develop its durable AI and AIE access interlocks to deliver enhanced products that would meet the day-to-day operational cycles encountered in heavy industry.

The AI-HD and AIE-HD will deliver years of performance in the harshest environments. The products use a heavy-duty stainless steel support mechanism, designed to take up to 1.5 times the load of current access interlocks, which reinforces the locking action. The design also provides additional protection for applications with high levels of vibration, such as mixers and shredders.

Elisa Hunt, Castell’s marketing manager, commented: “Castell has always been synonymous with high-performing products in harsh environments and the new HD access range takes this to a new level. Taking feedback from our customers in the cement mixing, tanker loading and waste and recycling industries has enabled us to develop a product that offers new levels of safety performance.”

Castell Safety International protects personnel, assets and the environment worldwide across the energy, industry, manufacturing and transport sectors. Castell products are designed to work in the harshest environments, delivering safe and efficient solutions.

For more information, please contact Ms.Elisa Hunt at or visit Castell Safety International has a distributor presence in India.

Perma Pure launches new Nafion dryer for aerosol research and measurement

Perma Pure, the global leader in sample gas conditioning, has launched a new Nafion dryer on the Indian market. The MD-700 large diameter dryer was specifically developed for humidity control in particle measurement and aerosol analysis applications, but can be used in a wide range of drying or humidifying applications.

In order to minimize particle losses, a laminar sample flow should be maintained through the flow path of the dryer. The MD-700 addresses these performance needs while providing the moisture removal necessary to make accurate measurements across a wide range of flow rates up to 17 lpm. All moisture is removed in the vapour phase with a purge gas flow. Below are links to more information:

MD-700 Web Page

MD-700 Series Dryer Datasheet

MD-700 Series Dryer Product Manual

MD-700 Particle Loss Presentation Developed with TROPOS-Leipzig

As the MD-700 has very low particle losses in practical operation, users and researchers measuring PM 2.5, PM1, or nanoparticles, or performing aerosol research and analysis, now have an effective option to control humidity while improving measurement accuracy for their analyses.
