Also detect filter leaks with this loop-powered flow monitor
May 01, 2014
This loop-powered particulate-matter flow and emissions monitor (photo) also detects filter leaks in baghouses, cartridge dust collectors and cyclones. Simple two-wire installation and single-piece mounting, along with heavy-duty construction and charge-induction sensing with no optics enable low-maintenance operations, even in applications with challenging particulate types, such as flyash from coal and carbon black, and emissions from smelters, foundries, cement kilns and powder dryers. - FilterSense Inc., Beverly, Mass. www.filtersense.com

EJL Wireless Research adds the Nokia Solutions Networks W-CDMA/LTE FRGP 2100MHz B1 Radio Unit to its DesigN Analysis Infrastructure; DNA-I Series of Teardown Reports.
April 22, 2014
  Salem, NH (PRWEB) April 22, 2014             EJL Wireless Research is announcing a new report within its proprietary DNA-I series, a Nokia Solutions Networks W-CDMA/LTE 2100MHz B1 210W (3x70W) Flexi 3-sector radio module.       "This is our first opportunity to look into the 3-sector design philosophy for NSN's outdoor radio module for its LTE eNodeB products. The Flexi 3-sector radio contains three complete radio transceivers, three power amplifiers and three duplexer filters to support 1x2 SIMO functionality. Two 3-sector radio modules may be deployed to enable a 2x2 MIMO functionality per sector at the BTS site. We note that this architecture is the most integrated and compact 3-sector radio design by any BTS OEM" said founder and President, Earl Lum.

Simple blood test can diagnose asthma: Study
April 16, 2014
New York, April 16 -- A single drop of blood can be a faster, cheaper and more accurate tool to diagnose mild cases of asthma If we believe researchers at University of Wisconsin-Madison, this hand-held technology can lead to diagnose asthma even if patients are not experiencing any symptoms.

Spotlight: Jawbone Era
April 15, 2014
The new Jawbone Era comes with a minimalist and lightweight design that is 42 percent smaller than the old Era, in part made possible by its micro-electro-mechanical systems that also offers better performance despite its smaller size. The headset comes with a charging dock small enough to fit into your pocket, and bumps the 4-hours talk time of the lightweight Bluetooth earpiece to 10 hours. The Era also features a new earbud design that the company says has been in testing for almost three years, and fits more comfortably than the older earloop design. The Jawbone Era is available in four colors: Black, Silver, Bronze and Red, and priced at $129.99 with charging case; or $99.99 for just the headset.

Potential for windmills at the microscale
April 01, 2014
FULL TEXT Micro-windmills can operate without even standing up. THE CHALLENGE IN FINDING LONG-TERM LUBRICATION solutions for wind turbines is well known and documented. One approach that has been discussed involves finding ways to reduce the stress on individual wind turbines in a farm in order to improve their longevity. In a previous TLT article, researchers used a technique known as Simulator for Offshore /Onshore Wind Farm Applications to examine an existing wind farm and studied five scenarios in which the turbines are spaced in a different manner from each other.1 The results from these scenarios indicate that staggering wind turbines leads to a significant improvement in the efficiency of each individual unit. A second factor is that reduction of the number of wind turbines also results in greater efficiency.

What's New
February 03, 2014
What's New Filter Media Adhesive A cross-linked vinyl acrylic polymer, FilterFAB 3000 can be sprayed directly on filter media by filter manufacturers in order for the now-sticky media to entrap more particulates from the airstream, said the company. The adhesive dries quickly in an oven, minimizing additional production time. Its water-based formulation renders it easy to clean with water when wet, reducing cleanup time. According to the manufacturer, FilterFAB 3000 is a low-volatile organic compound (VOC), formaldehyde-free adhesive that is safe for the environment and for use in air filtration systems. It is pressure sensitive, so it can be used for laminating multiple layers of media to achieve the desired performance level. Franklin Adhesives & Polymers, a division of Franklin Intl. Inc.
