  • In order to control the depth, slopes, and profile of the final milled surface many millers now have automatic depth control using lasers, string-lines, or other methods to maintain milled surfaces to ±5 mm (0.20 in) of the target height. (wikipedia.org)
  • aerosol
  • Our compact weather stations are part of monitoring stations for measurement of fine dust, manufactured by our customers Grimm Aerosol Technik GmbH and PALAS. (environmental-expert.com)

  • amounts
  • Saharan dust in particular can be transported and deposited as far as the Caribbean and the Amazon basin, and may affect air temperatures, cause ocean cooling, and alter rainfall amounts. (wikipedia.org)
  • deposits
  • Researchers first analyzed individual grains of fine wind-blown dust deposited in the Chinese Loess Plateau that has formed thick deposits over the past 2.5 million years. (enn.com)
  • They also analyzed the Mu Us desert in Inner Mongolia and the Yellow River, one of the world's longest rivers, to identify links between the dust deposits and nearby deserts and rivers. (enn.com)
  • The Yellow River drains the northeast Tibetan plateau and so the uplift of this region and the development of Yellow River drainage seems to control the large scale dust deposits and sand formation in this part of China," said lead researcher Tom Stevens from the Department of Geography at Royal Holloway.

  • continuous
  • Continuous miner and roof bolter dust control. (cdc.gov)
  • In relation to dust, there are three categories of continuous miner faces depending on the type of ventilation and whether or not a machine-mounted dust scrubber is used. (cdc.gov)
  • However, there are many dust control features (such as the need to provide adequate airflow) common to all continuous miner sections. (cdc.gov)
  • Dust from the continuous miner when it is upwind. (cdc.gov)
  • Development of the continuous personal dust monitor was performed by Thermo Fisher under contract from the U.S. National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health with input from other government, labor, and industry organizations. (wikipedia.org)
  • Machine-mounted continuous dust monitors have been available since 1997. (wikipedia.org)
  • permit
  • By implementing these changes, which have been/will be incorporated in the facility's air permit, Carmeuse will dramatically reduce the amount of dust released into the neighborhood. (epa.gov)
  • Frequently employed by local governments of arid climates such as those in the Southwest United States, dust abatement procedures may also be required in private construction as a condition of obtaining a building permit. (wikipedia.org)
  • commonly
