The A21 is a gas sample pumping system designed to draw samples from ducts or hard to access locations and deliver the samples to gas sensors located in a more convenient area.
The A21 is a gas sample pumping system designed to draw samples from ducts or hard to access locations and deliver the samples to gas sensors located in a more convenient area. A21 Sampling Systems use a high quality diaphragm pump operated by a brushless DC motor to provide continuous sampling over long periods of time. Sampling pumps are rated for over 10,000 hours of continuous operation and diaphragms in the pump may be changed easily if necessary. The pump will draw samples against a vacuum of up to 10" Hg. for sampling negative pressure duct systems when necessary.
In addition to the sampling pump, A21 systems contain various components needed to insure reliable sample measurement. A flowmeter mounted on the front panel allows the user to adjust the sample flowrate to the desired value, normally around 500 cc./min. Internal to the system is a loss of flow detector that will warn of sampling system problems that could compromise the gas measurement system. A loss of flow alarm light on the front panel provides local flow loss indication while an internal relay can be used to indicate this alarm remotely.

In the wake of various water quality crises from Flint, Michigan and Puerto Rico, there is a growing interest and demand among consumers for home water testing. Enter DIY water testing kits like Tap Score by SimpleWater. Tap Score in particular was conceived of and launched by former UC Berkeley grad student John Pujol and co-founder and CTO Julio Rodriguez. “In 2015 we began testing small and rural communities for arsenic in their water,” Pujol explains. “We found it much more frequently than we expected, and also discovered that people in these towns greatly appreciated someone telling them what was in their water and how to fix it.Read More
For most of us, when we think of nitrate and agricultural pollution, we think of the nitrate that comes from fertilizers and leaches quickly through the soil. The effects of this kind of pollution are realized quickly, but researchers from Lancaster University and the British Geological Survey have recently revealed an underground time bomb of nitrate in rock. In the recent paper , lead author and hydrogeologist Matthew Ascott and the team quantified the vast amounts of nitrate that exist within the layers of rock between the soil and groundwater tables for the first time. They discovered that there is about twice as much nitrate lurking in this rocky vadose zone than there is in the soil—up to 180 million tons—nitrate that has been omitted from global scale nitrogen budgets.Read More
In a state that knows water is perhaps the single most decisive factor in its continued existence, the Arizona Water Center (AWC), part of the United States Geological Survey (USGS), plays a critically important role. James Leenhouts, Director of the AWC and a hydrologist by training, has lived in Arizona for decades, and devoted his career to helping Arizonans cope with the unique challenges water presents. “A key part of what we do is provide information for resource managers to answer their questions,” Leenhouts explains. “For example, if someone wants to put wells in a certain place in the aquifer, how will it affect nearby wells?” It's a fair question.Read More
