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.

A pair of lonesome data buoys bobbing off Michigan’s storm-whipped Lake Superior shore were suddenly the stars of the state this fall when they captured the largest waves ever measured on the Great Lakes. The buoys, near Granite Island and Munising, each recorded 28.8-foot significant wave heights during a storm that caused hundreds of thousands of dollars of damage along the coast. The record wave height exceeded the previous 27.6-foot record set by a Michigan Tech buoy near Houghton, Mich., in 2012. To give some perspective on the rarity of these types of events, waves at the record-capturing buoys only climbed above 12 feet four times throughout 2015 and 2016.Read More
Teeming communities of life inhabit the bottoms of nearly all waterways everywhere. Hidden from most observers, whether by lack of access or lack of awareness, these benthic macroinvertebrates form much of the foundation of any aquatic food web and ecosystem. However, these tiny denizens of the nation's waterways are also a mostly captive audience when it comes to poor water quality; they spend most of their lives in water, and unlike fish, cannot flee pollution or disruption. For this reason, scientists see benthic macroinvertebrates as indicators, nature's water quality detectives.Read More
Researchers today are turning to the community more often in their work to make use of citizen scientists, dedicated volunteers in the community who want to get involved in scientific research. Two recent examples from Michigan, the Oakland County Healthy Lake Initiative and a study concerning botulism deaths of waterfowl on Lake Michigan, prove how effective these collaborations can be. The Oakland County Lake monitoring project Dr. Paul Steen, a watershed ecologist with the Huron River Watershed Council , administers the Oakland County Healthy Lake Initiative as program manager of the Michigan Clean Water Corps (MiCorps) .Read More
