Off-Grid Powering for Construction Projects
April 12, 2022

Over recent years we have seen big increases in all types of building projects from domestic houses to major infrastructure projects like HS2. More and more local authorities are including monitoring requirements for noise, dust and vibration right from the planning stage and all too often there’s either no mains power on site yet or […]

Dust Monitoring in Construction
January 11, 2022

Although dust monitoring for environmental air quality evaluation has been around for many years, it is a relatively new parameter requirement for construction projects. The ES-642 Cloud from AcSoft is an MCERTified instrument that can provide PM10 or PM2.5 measurement data via the SvanNET portal or direct to your own system. The instrument can be run from a 110/240v supply or […]

Do You Think We’ll Ever See Calibratable MEMS Type Chip Mics Capable of Replacing Half Inch Mics? If Not, Why Not?
January 10, 2022

This was one of the questions posed to the IOA M&I Group panel earlier this year at the ‘Ask the Instrumentation Expert’ meeting reported on in the last IOA bulletin. This seems to be one area of genuine innovation in sound level meters, and we have received several requests to expand on the subject, hence […]

Noise Monitoring for Construction
January 06, 2022

Noise has been a monitoring requirement in and around construction sites for many years and it is important that you put in a system that gives you the data you need in the easiest way possible. We believe that the SV 307 from Svantek is now the de facto standard at construction sites across the whole […]

Hand-Arm Vibration Exposure in Rock Drill Workers
January 04, 2022

From The Chartered Society for Worker Health Protection, this study is a comparison between measurements with hand-attached and tool-attached accelerometers. This study is important because it shows that the choice of accelerometer placement affects the measurement result. The working technique, specifically the individual handgrips used by workers, is an important factor to consider when planning […]

Noise, Dust and Vibration Monitoring
December 08, 2021

On a construction site it is vital that environmental parameter monitoring systems are designed and built for purpose. They have to operate for extended periods in the harshest environments and you have to be confident that your data is always there when you need it. At Svantek we are probably the UK’s biggest supplier of monitoring […]
