The power of three: ET introduces three new products
9 November 2012, News release from Enviro Technology Services Plc
Enviro Technology Services has announced the debut of three new pioneering air monitoring products, adding further weight to the Gloucestershire-based firm's growing reputation as a driving force for innovation in air quality monitoring technology.
From an analyser aimed at researchers wanting to measure the tricky combo of ammonia and hydrogen sulphide, to the world's first fully automatic pollen monitor, ET continues to deliver innovation.
New products brought to the UK market this autumn by ET include the Tekran 2537X, developed as a successor to the Tekran 2537. Since its launch in 1993, the 2537 is widely considered to have set the standard for ambient air mercury measurement. Features of the upgraded model include full-colour touchscreen operation, reduced height, and improved data and instrument parameter logging. ET's Sales and Marketing Director, Duncan Mounsor says:
"Put simply: the world's best mercury monitor has just got better. The 2537X is the only automated analyser capable of automated, continuous, unattended mercury speciation. The impact and occurrence of mercury in the environment has long been of interest to researchers seeking to monitor toxicity levels, especially in water and from coal-fired power plants. With the 2537X, Tekran has continued to advance our understanding of mercury cycling in the environment."
For a limited time, ET is offering a part-exchange incentive for customers who want to trade their existing Tekran model for the new 2537X.
ET has also unveiled a H2S/NH3 Analyser from Los Gatos Research (LGR), which measures the traditionally difficult gas combo of ammonia and hydrogen sulphide. LGR designs some of the world's highest performing instruments for leading-edge research using laser-based measurement. ET has already sold seven LGR NH3 analysers, including two to The Rothamsted Research Institute in Devon. The Institute is the world's longest running agricultural research station; its work has shaped modern agricultural practice.
Finally, ET is launching the world's first fully-automated pollen monitor. The BAA500 was developed by German-based instrument specialist, Hund Wetzlar. From alder to yew, the monitor automatically extracts pollen grains from the environment and counts them under an automated light microscope with a dedicated image processing system. The BAA500 is designed for a one-month autonomous operation period.
Duncan says the pollen monitor is ground-breaking: "Before Hund, the only effective method for counting pollen has been manually. This has obvious implications in terms of both time delay and the risk of human error. Monitoring is of great importance for the prevention and understanding of allergy: one in five of us are allergic to some form of pollen. It's almost unbelievable that real-time, automatic monitoring of pollen is only now becoming a possibility."
With almost 30 years' experience, ET has always specialised in bringing to market innovative solutions for air quality monitoring. Previous examples of cutting-edge technology introduced by the company to the UK market include the OPSIS differential optical absorption spectroscopy system (DOAS) for open-path monitoring.
Duncan concludes, "We see ET as the go-to expert for cutting-edge environmental monitoring technology. We can design, build, install and support virtually any combination of monitoring technology for virtually any type of environmental application. When it comes to managing air quality, knowledge - in the form of monitoring - is power."
