Monitoring Off-Gases to Guard Against Thermal Runaway Risk with Li-Ion Batteries

  • By : PureAire Monitoring Systems
  • Posted on : April 01, 2022

Lithium-Ion Batteries Rechargeable lithium-ion (“li-ion”) batteries (comprised of cells in which lithium ions move from a negative electrode through an electrolyte to a positive electrode during discharge—and the other way around when charging) were first described conceptually in the 1970s. Following initial prototype development in the 1980s, li-ion batteries became commercially viable in subsequent decades, […]

  • Posted on : November 09, 2021

What is Oxygen Deficiency? The air we breathe is made up of 78% nitrogen, 21% oxygen, and trace amounts of other gases such as carbon dioxide, neon, and hydrogen. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) defines an environment in which oxygen levels fall below 19.5% as an oxygen-deficient atmosphere, which should be treated as […]

Brewers Safely Capture and Reuse Carbon Dioxide

  • By : PureAire Monitoring Systems
  • Posted on : November 11, 2020

Brewing beer produces carbon dioxide (CO2), especially during fermentation (the process by which yeast converts sugars into alcohol). Estimates are that fermentation yields three times as much carbon dioxide as is actually needed to produce (including brewing, canning, and bottling) each batch of beer, with up to 15 grams of CO2 generated per pint of […]

  • Posted on : May 07, 2020

What is Nitrogen Blanketing? Nitrogen (N) blanketing is a process by which nitrogen is added to fill the headspace (the area between the fill line of a tank’s contents and the top of the storage vessel) to eliminate oxygen and moisture from storage tanks. Nitrogen is commonly used to blanket due to its extremely low […]
