  2. Monitor Indoor Air Quality to Prevent COVID-19 Outbreaks

    Research into the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 has presented ‘overwhelming evidence’ that inhalation of the virus ‘represents a major transmission route for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).’[1] In response, leading bodies, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)[2] and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC)[3], advise improving air ventilation in enclosed spaces in addition to following existing guidance, e.g. washing hands, maintaining social distancing, and wearing a face mask. Monitoring CO2 concentration provides an easy way of assessing air quality and maintaining good air ventilation. PASS Ltd offers a range of indoor air quality monitors suitable for this purpose, including Chauvin Arnoux’s CA 1510 IAQ Tester. Continue reading →

  4. Build Back Greener After Coronavirus: Use a PEL to Monitor and Improve Energy Efficiency

    Power Quality Analyser Blog As part of the government’s attempts to build back greener after coronavirus, Chancellor Rishi Sunak has revealed a Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme. This billion-pound program is aimed at improving energy efficiency in schools, hospitals and other public buildings. It is part of the UK’s efforts to reduce the public sector’s greenhouse gas emissions by 50% in a bid to meet legally binding targets of net zero emissions by 2050. Portable energy loggers, such as Chauvin Arnoux’s PEL103, are vital tools when it comes to measuring energy consumption and efficiency. These relatively inexpensive instruments can be used to establish an initial benchmark prior to implementing changes. Additionally, PELs can pinpoint where improvements would be most effective and can be used to monitor progress over time. Continue reading →
  5. Legionnaires' Disease: Managing the Risk Post Lockdown

    When the UK entered lockdown on the 23rd March 2020 many offices, schools, universities, leisure facilities and tourist attractions were forced to shut. Now, as the UK begins to re-open, concerns of social distancing, hygiene and sanitation have been raised. One such concern is the increased risk of Legionella outbreaks caused by a build-up of Legionella pneumophilia bacteria in the stagnant water systems of buildings that have been closed due to lockdown.

  7. Which type of Moisture Meters?

    In winter and spring the humidity increases around us; so now can be a good time to consider the importance of moisture meters and their various features. Professional people use moisture meters to measure the moisture in walls, floors, concrete, hay and other materials, as even minor differences in moisture content can cause a big difference in the results of their work.

  8. Make Your Kitchen Safer by Colour-Coding your Thermometers!

    In any busy commercial kitchen where different types of food are prepared, ready to be sold, the risk of cross-contamination between foods is always a problem. Continue reading →
  9. Testing for Optimum Panel Orientation

    In the UK, solar panels produce at full (100%) irradiance if oriented due South at an inclination of 35 degrees while panels facing East or West only produce 79% of the equivalent energy output. However consumption demand peak patterns may now favour East-West orientation. Continue reading →
  10. Factory Sound Metering Helps Avoid Fines

    There is no need to risk fines for breaching noise at work regulations when the cost of compliance is so low. Earlier this month, a Keighley furnishings company was fined after failing to protect its workforce from excessive noise levels on production machinery. Continue reading →
