Monitoring indoor air quality

Good indoor air quality is important for our health. To keep the indoor air clean, you have to take care of adequate ventilation without unnecessary pollutants. This can be done with analysers.

Controlled supply of oxygen for iron removal in drinking water production

Raw water that naturally occurs in aquifers in the earth's crust contains dissolved iron in the ferrous Fe2+ form. In waterworks this iron will be removed.

Airplane

Lubricant dosing in airplane manufacturing

An important part of an aircraft is the fuselage, the part that surrounds crew, passengers and cargo. Fuselage parts are connected by making use of rivets, and to that purpose holes need to be drilled in these parts.

Gas supply control in stationary natural gas engines

In stationary natural gas engines, natural gas is being combusted with air to exploit the combustion energy. In this application the influence of hydrogen and exhaust gas recirculation on this type of engine are investigated.

Car dashboard

Accurate dosing of release agent

In their automotive department, a major company manufactures ‘skin’ that covers a car's dashboard, to give it a ‘leather look’. This skin is produced by spraying liquid, coloured polyurethane into a nickel mould.

Simulation of exhaust gas to test lambda probe

Each modern car with a combustion engine has a self-controlling way to optimise the engine performance. A sensor positioned in the exhaust section of the car measures the oxygen content of the car exhaust gases.

Safety test for gas couplings

A coupling manufacturer employs a test setup for a specific type of gas couplings that are used for the United States market. These gas couplings need to be gas tight during a certain minimum period of time in the occasion of fire.

CEM Systems for NASA Research

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) recently redesigned the system used to test the new space suit Portable Life Support System (PLSS) that is under development. In order to test the PLSS a simulated human metabolic load must be applied to the various sub-systems and so NASA needed to simulate the human production of CO2 and water vapor with its associated heat load.

Other markets

Bronkhorst instruments are used for numerous applications in many different markets. They can be found in laboratories, universities, industry, production and pilot plants and even in areas or installations with risk of explosion. A substantial part of the produced instruments is integrated in manufacturing machines or equipment of so called OEM-customers (Original Equipment Manufacturers).
