Industrial Scientific Corporation, or ISC, develops, manufactures, and services fixed and portable gas detection equipment. Key markets include utilities, chemical production, oil and gas, steel and coke, paper industry, fire service, construction, military, insurance companies, food and drinks, and general industry. Industrial Scientific Corporation is active worldwide, either direct or through distributors.Industrial Scientific Corporation is based in the Pittsburgh suburb of Oakdale in Pennsylvania. The Pittsburgh operations does manufacturing, development, and services of ISC products in the USA. Industrial Scientific has major operations in Shanghai, China; Arras, France; and Dortmund, Germany. The company’s competitors include Mine Safety Appliances, RAE Systems, and Dräger.ISC was founded in 1976 as research and development department of the National Mine Service Company . This department had been founded to develop portable detection equipment for methane. In 1985 NMS sold this department to part of the departments management and ISC started operation as a private company.In 2006, ISC acquired Oldham S.A. of Arras, France, a company primarily manufacturing fixed gas monitoring Systems.In 2008, ISC acquired DBO2, a company using a self developed data mining software to predict and forestall safety problems primarily in the building industry.

Stratigraphy and Geological Correlation | Year: 2010
Both published and original data are used for the analysis of the stratigraphic position and taxonomic characteristics for acanthomorphic microfossils of the Pertatataka type in Lower Vendian sediments of the central and southeastern Siberian Platform and its surrounding structures. Four taxonomically different microbiotas are distinguished in sections of the Nepa-Botuoba, Fore-Patom; Syugdzher, Anabar, Zhuya-Lena, and Berezovo lithotectonic zones: two diverse (Nepa and Ura) and two impoverished (Otradnino and Torga) each including diagnostic Early Vendian taxa. Beyond the Siberian Platform, genera and species characterizing these microbiotas occur in single assemblages and represent diagnostic taxa of the second (Tc-Sr-Vl) and third (Ti-Cg-Mp) zones of the acritarch scale proposed by Australian geologists as a biostratigraphic basis for subdividing the Ediacarian of the Standard stratigraphic scale (SSS). In the Russian General stratigraphic scale, the distribution of Pertatataka acritarchs corresponds to the Lower Vendian. The appearance and mass development of acanthomorphic microorganisms represents a global biological event, which should be taken into consideration as a biostratigraphic criterion for defining the Vendian System. For substantiating age, the following species among diagnostic Lower Vendian forms of East Siberia should be used: Appendisphaera grandis, "Appendisphaera" tabifica, A. tenuis, Ceratosphaeridium glaberosum, Dicrospinosphaera virgata, Multifronsphaeridium pelorium, "Polygonium" cratum, Tanarium conoideum, Variomargosphaeridium litoschum, and Talakania obscura. These taxa are readily recognizable, morphologically stable, and characterized by their wide lateral distribution and relatively narrow stratigraphic range. Their occurrence in the upper part of the Dal'nyaya Taiga Group of the Baikal-Patom region indicates that host sediments should be attributed to the Lower Vendian, not the Upper Riphean as is currently accepted. © 2010 Pleiades Publishing, Ltd.

The characteristics of fiber-optic oscillation frequency sensors of deformation and temperature that employ the thermal fluctuation resonant oscillations in the SMS(M) fiber structures (sensitive elements that represent oscillation systems with distributed parameters based on series-connected single- and multimode step-index fibers) are developed and studied. The measurements of the fluctuation oscillations are based on the amplitude-phase modulation of the optical wave in the multimode oscillating section due to variations in the path-length difference and tunneling of interfering beams. Accuracies of temperature and relative deformation measurements of ±2°C and ±10-5, respectively, are demonstrated. The estimation of the ultimate measurement sensitivity of the resonance frequency is based on the approximate calculation of the Allan variance that shows a possibility of the above sensors with temperature and deformation threshold sensitivities of 0.001°C and 10-8, respectively. © 2013 Pleiades Publishing, Ltd.

A process for producing densified and at least partially graphitised carbonaceous product. The process includes the following steps: heating a biomass in an oxygen controlled atmosphere to a first temperature under compression to form a plastically deformed intermediate product and heating the plastically deformed intermediate product in an oxygen controlled atmosphere to a second temperature that is higher than the first temperature, while constraining the intermediate product to limit or avoid volume expansion to form the densified and at least partially graphitised carbonaceous product.

An environmental monitoring device for detecting and warning users of unhealthy levels of a given substance is disclosed having more than one sensor for each substance to be detected. Each sensor for each substance detected may be positioned in more than one plane or surface on the device. The device may be capable of auto or self calibration. Methods for reading substance levels and auto calibrating are also disclosed.
