press release [PDF]

Let us introduce you our partners around the world and start with Russia:

The highly-skilled team of the company Evrotechlab Ltd. (Saint Petersburg) set up a continuous emission monitoring system (CEMS) to the flues of steam boilers No. 1 to 6 of the Karmanovskaya GRES TPP (1.8 MW) in Neftekamsk, Russia.

The CEMS is installed inside an all-weather shelter and is equipped with a sample switching system to switch between 4 streams. CO, SO2, CH4, NO and O2 are continuously measured by means of the MGA 12 gas analyser. 

The system comes along with the necessary metrological certification.

Thanks to Evrotechlab Ltd. for their professional system integration and great local support!

For further information, please contact Simone Schmalfuss from our sales team (E-Mail: or our sales partner in Russia.

Innovative, smart NO2 sensors in the field test

The team around Prof. Dittler (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology) is currently testing together with the R&D team of Dr. Födisch UMT AG prototypes of the new and smart NO2 sensor (GSD 19). Measurement campaigns lasting several months (comparison measurements), etc. realized at immission measuring points of the Landesanstalt für Umwelt Baden-Württemberg. Both locations close to traffic and far away from traffic routes were selected for the field test.*

The GSD 19 will be commercially available from May 2021. The GSD 19 will be available for measurements in ambient air (measuring range NO2: 0 ... 1ppm) and at workplaces (measuring range NO2: 0 ... 2ppm).

This can be used as an add-on to the fine dust sensors from Dr. Födisch UMT AG (FDS 15) for continous air quality monitoring. All mentioned sensor are designed for outdoor use.

* The project is co-financed by the BMWi.

Delta TOC measurement for monitoring industrial exhaust air filters

During production of cast parts for engines and transmissions in a well-known automobile company, odour emissions are released. Exhaust air filters are used to reduce the unavoidable odour emissions.

Can the efficiency of such air filters be monitored? Yes.

For this purpose, the measuring gas is fed to one single analyser via two sample probes (before and after the filter) and lines to determine the total carbon content. The delta of the measured values is an indicator of the correct function of the air filter.

Convince yourself.

Current research projects

Development of the continuous monitoring of the acid dew point in order to increase the energy efficiency in industrial plants and to protect the climate

The focus of the 18-month project is the development of the continuous acid dew point measurement (methodology and technology). The idea of the research and product development project is based on variety of concrete applications from the chemical, energy and environmental sectors. These sectors have been facing the similar problem for years – namely this means that in combustion plants at a certain exhaust gas temperature, the sulphur oxides react to sulfuric acid which is harmful to the plant in the presence of water vapour. In order to counteract the devastating corrosion process, the exhaust gas temperatures are usually kept well above the acid dew point. The energy expenditure for this is very high, consequently are also the ecological damages considerable. The target is to use appropriate measuring technology to keep the exhaust gas temperature as close as possible above the actual acid dew point, in order to achieve a lower energy input, higher power output and to reduce CO2, SO2 and NOx emissions.

Development of a quick and automatic test system to detect boars smells

Male piglets produce hormones upon their sexual maturity which can initiate a disagreeable boars’ smell. This smell can decrease the sales of boars’ meat in Germany and Europe. Early slaughter and manual odour tests are currently applied. Legal basic conditions aggravate other methods which are used in the early phase of the boars’ growth. From 2019 onwards the piglets’ castration without anaesthesia will be forbidden. Vaccinations shall find a remedy, however these are not the optimal solution with regard to consumer protection. 

In the current R&D project a quick test automatic based on metal oxide sensor technology shall be developed for the application on the slaughter line in order to standardise the judgement of the smell objectively. The project has started on 1st of August 2016 and will be performed in cooperation with the Frankenförder research institute and a company (slaughterhouse) from Thuringia.

Start of microelectronics EU project IoSense

Project IoSense kicked off on 19. May 2016 in Dresden.  28 partners from 7 European countries launched the project "Flexible Sensor pilot line for IoT", in short: IoSense, on the 19th of May 2016 by consortium leader Infineon Dresden. The whole funding volume of the project is 65 million euros. Funding sponsors are the European Commission, the German Federal Ministry for Education and Research and the Free State of Saxony. Dr. Födisch Umweltmesstechnik AG hereby profits by the further development of the fine dust sensor FDS 15 to chip level, being so prepared for the future requirements of industry 4.0.
