  • Electrical Ground Rules; Best Practices for Grounding Your Electrical EquipmentBy

    When wiring or connecting circuits, electrical equipment, and electrical instruments, there is a connection that you probably don’t give much thought to, and one that consequently reigns as one of the greatest sources of instrument error and malfunction. The connection I am referring to is your...
  • Chemical Safety: How to Store Laboratory Chemicals and Minimize RiskBy

    Proper chemical storage is critical to minimizing risk in a laboratory or industrial setting. The safe storage of hazardous substances is an essential part of any environmental, health, and safety program for your lab. To minimize liability and reduce the risk of an accident occurring it is...
  • How to Select the Right Water Filtration SolutionBy

    Water filtration has been present throughout recorded human history. There are records of water filtration as far back as 2000 BC. Human bodies consist of 70% water and therefore need water — potable water — to sustain them. Historically, civilizations were constructed around bodies of water,...
  • How Continuous Level Sensors WorkBy

    SmartBob 2 and TS1: Measuring range is from the tip of the “Bob” when fully retracted to where the Bob contacts material at the bottom of the vessel. The Smart- Bob measures the level of headroom from a single point on the material surface directly below the sensor’s mounting location.
  • Removing Dissolved Copper in Wastewater Treatment PlantsBy

    How do you meet your dissolved copper discharge limit if it is 1.6 ppb, 3.1 ppb or 6.1 ppb? What is the cost to achieve these limits? Which treatment is cost effective? Is deionization, Reverse Osmosis or chemical precipitation the best alternative to low level of dissolved copper in a...
  • Tackling Tough Fluid Sensing ChallengesBy

    If an application calls for the accurate fluid sensing of liquid level, pressure or flow, Gems Sensors & Controls can help. Their extensive fluid sensing portfolio has evolved from nearly 60 years of field-proven successes in a variety of markets. Common customer fluid sensing challenges can...
