Qualified measurement of PM 2.5 using FDS 15

Do you already know our smart sensor for monitoring of particulate matter (PM 2.5; optional PM 10) in the environment and at workplaces? The FDS 15 is suitable for year-round use outdoors as well as long-term use in complex industrial environments, such as in workshops. Due to its integrated measuring gas conditioning and qualified zero point setting, the sensor delivers precise values. The data can be retrieving at any time on smartphone, tablet, laptop or PC via WLAN. If you are interested in, please have a look at the product information or contact our sales team.

Biomass heating plant at the University of Marburg equipped with measurement technology

In the future, a brand new biomass utilization plant will supply the University of Marburg with energy. A gas analyzer (MGA 12) including gas sampling probe and sample gas line as well as a dust measuring device were recently put into operation for continuous emission monitoring. In addition to the production and commissioning of the measurement technology, Dr. Födisch UMT AG will provide preventive maintenance service in the future. You too can benefit from our low-maintenance environmental and process measurement technology. Please contact us or our sales partner for detailed information.

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.
