Fluid Components International’s ST100 Series Thermal Mass Air/Gas Flow Meter helps improve the accuracy of specialty gas point-of-use and sub-metering operations to achieve accurate billing in the labs for better cost tracking and control.
The GSM-60 from ENMET is a microprocessor-based gas monitor suited for use in industrial process, aerospace, pharmaceutical and semiconductor applications.
BS&B’s platform of flame arrester/relief vent products and services encompasses both pressure/vacuum relief devices and flame arresters, as well as combinations, all manufactured in accordance with API 2000, EN ISO 16852, NFPA 30 & 69.
The USDA is working on a vaccine to counter a deadly strain of bird flu, as losses to poultry producers mount. But, the process is fraught with questions about which birds would get the vaccine, how it might affect exports and whether it would be effective against the rapidly spreading strain.
Scientists have demonstrated the potential for softwoods to process more easily into pulp and paper if engineered to incorporate a key feature of hardwoods. The find could improve the economics of the pulp, paper and biofuels industries and reduce those industries' environmental impact.
From picking up trash in a village in Indonesia, to tree plantings in Cameroon, to the World Climate Summit in Paris, the celebration of Earth Day is an eclectic mix of ecological observation that is considered to be largest civic observance in the world.
Use of clean fuels and updated pollution control measures in the school buses 25 million children ride every day could result in 14 million fewer absences from school a year. In research, believed to be the first to measure the individual impact on children of the federal mandate to reduce diesel emissions, scientists found improved health and less absenteeism, especially among asthmatic children.
We’re currently in the middle of the annual April Lyrids shower, the oldest known meteor shower. This year, it peaks between today and tomorrow— April 22 and 23— with a specific emphasis between midnight and dawn tomorrow morning.
Researchers have discovered that sweet potatoes naturally contain genes from a bacterium. Because of the presence of this foreign DNA, sweet potato can be seen as a natural genetically modified organism (GMO).
A team of scientists has developed materials using ordinary silk that can be programmed to help the body heal.
Robert Oppenheimer, Father of the Atomic Bomb, was born April 22, 1904 as Julius Robert Oppenheimer. He played a large role in the Manhattan Project and witnessed the first atomic bomb detonation— the Trinity Test.
In 84 days from November 2013 to January 2014, the area around Azle, Texas, shook with 27 magnitude 2 or greater earthquakes, while scientists monitored the shaking. With real-time monitors, scientists have linked the swarm of small earthquakes to nearby natural gas wells and wastewater injection.
In order to prevent death by bleeding or infection, every wound must close at some point. The events leading to skin closure had been unclear for many years. Now, researchers have used fruit fly embryos as a model system to understand this process.
The oceans and other water bodies contain billions of tons of dissolved uranium. Over the planet’s history, some of this uranium was transformed into an insoluble form, causing it to precipitate and accumulate in sediments. New research shows that the isotopic composition of uranium provides a unique window into microbial activity billions of years into the past.
Texas-based Blue Bell Creameries has issued a voluntary recall for all of its products on the market after two samples of chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream tested positive for listeria, a potentially deadly bacteria. The company cannot say with certainty how the bacteria was introduced to its facilities.
