New Technology 

       

Max Analytical has developed a new FTIR enhancement technology called StarBoostâ„¢ that significantly increases the sensitivity, detector linearity and dynamic range over a narrow spectral range. This breakthrough technology allows for single digit ppbv detection of hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) such as formaldehyde in real-time. At typical gas sampling flows of ~5LPM, very fast turn-over of the sample occurs and real-time results can be observed.

 We are excited to add this new system to our testing services. We will be offering this to customers wanting

 very low detection limits (~40 ppb) for formaldehyde including those with gas fired turbines and engines, especially in the power and gas transmission industries.

Air Hygiene University

 

On March 8th, Tom Graham and Pat McGovern met with 160 high school students from the Bossier Parish School for Technology & Innovative Learning (BIPSTL) in Bossier, Louisiana. They gave the students tours of our trailers and introduced AHI to BIPSTL. It was a very successful outreach / recruiting event.

 

 

Air Hygiene University has successfully implemented "on-the-go" training for the busy Stack Tester via a cell phone based "app" type system affectionately nicknamed the #TAG

 

#TAG takes advantage of the abilities and constant presence of the cell phone to deliver short, but informative content to an ever more tech-savvy audience. Each #TAG "Installment" is a weekly series of slides covering topics that range from the technical (e.g. Method 201A, 2F, etc.) to the soft skills of crew and Client interaction (e.g. Servant Leadership, Customer Service, etc.). The end result is a convenient, low cost, and easy to understand approach toward continuous process improvement and employee growth.

AIR HYGIENE UNIVERSITY

Air Hygiene University celebrated its 5th anniversary on April 1st. In the first 5 years the training branch of Air Hygiene has successfully created written standards around the methods and equipment required to achieve technical competence as a stack tester at Air Hygiene. The University has also grown to include other services that include DOT, test protocols, test reports, and training for our Clients and regulators. This year the focus will turn to Field Manager Development and providing written standards for the skills necessary to thrive as a leader at Air Hygiene. Regardless of the task, Air Hygiene University would like to be your one-stop-shop for stack testing training and process improvement solutions.

Several Air Hygiene employees attended the 41st Stationary Source Sampling and Analysis for Air Pollutants (SSSAAP) Conference. This conference is a gathering of stack testing experts, our vendors, industry, and regulators from around the country. During the conference each group shares information about upcoming changes and improvements in our field. The conference also serves as a unique platform for voicing questions, comments, and concerns with existing methods, regulations, and source tests.

 

Operations

Air Hygiene is very pleased to announce a new Master Services Agreement with Mitsubishi-Hitachi Power Systems America including their next 10 power plant projects across North America. This continues a very long and successful partnership between Air Hygiene and Mitsubishi-Hitachi which has included numerous projects across North America since 2010. We are proud to serve and work with Mitsubishi-Hitachi Power Systems.

AIR HYGIENE UNIVERSITY

7 employees sat for QSTI exams on March 3rd.

Air Hygiene kicked off a new Field Manager Leadership Development Program focusing on skill building for our Field Managers in the areas of Safety, Technical Competence, Business Development, Customer Relations, and Financial Responsibilities.

 

Lab

We have recently switched out Probe Brushes in the Wet Chemistry Cleanup Pelican Cases. The new probe has a better bristle tip on it than the old one. This also enables us to change the probe tip out every time the Wet Chemistry Cleanup Pelican Cases come in from a job. This change will help us recover all of the pm in the probe rinses as he diameter of the probe tip is more durable that the Teflon tip.

 

Service

We have recently installed a new Truck Mounted Generator for Shreveport office for Reliable Power Supply at all times. Listed below are some key improvements.

 

1.)Fixed Installation for convenient and consistent use

 

2.)Integrated toolbox with 40 gallon fuel tank for extended use (> 48 hours)

 

3.)20 kW output for better added instrument operations (GC + FTIR + full trailer features)

 

4.)Higher capacity means less stress on generator = Longer Service

 

5.)Quiet Design = Less Noise

 

6.)Assigned usage to Mobile Lab = Increased familiarity and reliability

Instrument Department

Mobile SO2 Analyzer Cases were added to the testing fleet this month. This addition meets the changing needs of mobile labs and jobs that periodically require SO2 analyzers and a variety of range changes depending upon the source to be tested.

The current status will be three of these each with the very current and capable Ametek Model 700 or Model 900 SO2 analyzer without pump models with ranges up to 5,000 ppm. The case is very light weight (1 person can handle and move fairly easily) and durable with a secured analyzer installed and ready to use.
