ATI C21 DRI-GAS Sampling System
- Condensing water vapor removed continuously
- Samples from ducts under vacuum
- Gas sensor “blinding” eliminated

Monitoring combustible or toxic gases in areas with condensing levels of moisture often results in premature sensor failure. Water condensing on sensor surfaces or within the sensor flame arrestor can be difficult to avoid due to widely variable ambient conditions.
ATI has developed a solution to this problem with a gas sampling system that also conditions the sample by removing water vapor. The Dri-Gas sampling system draws gas samples from high humidity vent stacks, ducts, wet wells, or other humid locations. The system removes water vapor from the gas sample by contact with a cold plate that condenses moisture and delivers a dehumidified gas sample suitable for toxic and combustible gas monitoring equipment. Excess condensate is pumped to a drain fitting on the bottom of the enclosure and can be collected if necessary.
Dri-Gas systems contain a diaphragm sampling pump with brushless DC motor providing operational life in excess of 10,000 hours. The pump is capable of pulling inlet line vacuum of up to 10” Hg. making it suitable for sampling duct system with negative pressures. The outlet of the pump is controlled by an adjustable rotameter allowing system sample flow to be set to the normal rate of 500 cc/min.
A differential pressure switch across the pump provides an alarm should the inlet line or outlet lines become blocked. An alarm lamp on the door provides local alarm indication and a SPDT alarm contact is available for remote alarm indication.
An optional inlet filter assembly is available for applications where gas streams may contain dust or debris that might cause problems in the air pump. A replaceable filter element on the end of the inlet assembly can be easily changed when necessary. A plugged inlet filter will be indicated by a fault indication. A package of filter elements are supplied with the inlet assembly.

Since its population bottomed out, the federally-endangered Piping Plover in the Great Lakes has made a comeback for the ages.
A population that once measured approximately 17 pairs and rebounded, hitting 76 pairs in 2017. The same year that count was made, the plovers had also returned to Gull Point, a nesting location that hadn’t been used in more than 60 years.
In an effort to understand some of the conditions that have allowed this species to return to its habitat, researchers have directed their attention toward a curious instrument for help.

Thirty years ago, white shark sightings near California’s beaches almost never happened. For Chris Lowe, who was a graduate student at California State University’s Shark Lab at the time, spying a dorsal fin from one of the ocean’s top predators was very rare.
Prior to the mid-90’s, an expansive commercial fishing operation and the loss of marine animals decimated white shark populations. If their food wasn’t being hunted, sharks were getting caught in gill nets. At that point, they would be killed anyways before getting brought to the market to be sold.
Then in 1994, California residents approved propositions that banned gillnets in state waters and enacted protections for the white shark.Read More
Where and how to monitor water quality is always a challenge, particularly in complex aquatic ecosystems. The new REASON Project from a team at Clarkson University is working to demonstrate the utility of using water quality instrumentation in dams on major rivers in the Great Lakes system.
Clarkson University Professor of Biology Michael Twiss spoke with EM about the new approach their team is taking at the Moses-Saunders Power Dam across the St. Lawrence River and the benefits the development of smart infrastructure such as this might offer.
“The upper St. Lawrence River is defined as that which leaves Lake Ontario and is just upstream from the city of Montreal,” explains Dr. Twiss.Read More
