Martek Marine Ltd has released VECSAFE, their innovative new safety device which safely monitors oxygen and pressure in vapor emission control systems. The combination of the MMS3000 oxygen sensor and MMS200 pressure sensor provides an intrinsically safe vapor emission control system, which continuously monitors oxygen content and pressure, all of which is controlled via the GDS404 control panel. Both the MMS3000 oxygen sensor and the MMS200 pressure sensor are constructed in 316 SS material
Based on half-wave resonance measurements, a new means of quickly and accurately determining steel thickness can speed ship surveys. It is especially valuable in inspecting old and corroded steelwork. The new DNV system, launched at Nor-Shipping '99 is unique. Present-day methods, based on ultrasonic thickness measurements, are not reliable on heavily corroded plates, and for large vessels are also considered too slow.

Shell technology creates sharper pictures of underground rock formations to find new oil and gas fields more cost effectively. Shell has found a way to use tiny motion sensors – like those used in modern everyday gadgets – to create sharper pictures of underground rock formations. Geophysicists map underground rock structures by sending seismic waves – essentially sound – through the ground. Sensors record the seismic waves and computers process the recordings to
