Gas analysis 2024
We are pleased to announce some important details regarding the upcoming events of the PROMETH2O project scheduled for January 30, 2024, in Paris.
Please save the date for the following events:
• PROMETH2O Project meeting is scheduled from 8:30 AM to 12:30 PM. It will be an in-person meeting; no online meeting platform will be available.
• PROMETH2O Final workshop will be organized in partnership with the Gas Analysis 2024 Symposium and is scheduled from 2:00 PM to 5:45 PM
Attendance at the final workshop is free for all project partners. However, participants need to register for the workshop as soon as possible. To register, please follow this link.
Please be aware that there is a participation fee for partners who wish to attend the Gas Analysis 2024 Symposium in addition to PROMETH2O events.
EURAMET Summer School on Thermal Metrology
A second edition of Euramet Summer School on Thermal Metrology is organized at MIRS/UL-FE/LMK, Ljubljana, from 11-15 September 2023.
The Summer School will give metrologists new to the field of temperature and humidity measurements an introductory overview of the current international metrology standards, followed by more detailed insight about the thermal metrology disciplines with the aim to prepare them for their future work.
The registration is open, register by 21 April 2023. However, the registration may be closed earlier if all available places are filled.
Participation will be confirmed by 25 April 2023.
The 21th International Metrology Congress will be held from 7 to 10 March 2023 in Lyon (France), in partnership with Global industrie. The event is composed of 200 presentations sorted by technical topics and 6 round table sessions responding to the world’s challenges around 3 key applications: Industry 4.0 ; Health ; Green deal.At this occasion 2 presentations from JRP partners have been done, they are avalable here :
• CIM 2023 - Eric GEORGIN : download the presentation
• CIM 2023 - Vito FERNICOLA : download the presentation
Installation new magnetic suspension balance at VSL
Within the PrometH2O project VSL is developing a method to generate moisture in the range of 50 nmol/mol up to 5 μmol/mol based on permeation (ISO 6145-10) and dynamic dilution with thermal mass-flow controllers (ISO 6145-7).
For this goal, a new magnetic suspension balance has been installed in the VSL laboratories (see photo) that will be used to accurately determine the mass loss of the water permeation tube.
Development of a low-frost point humidity generator at INRIM
INRIM has developed a low-frost point humidity generator to cover the trace water measurement range. The standard generator has been commissioned and validated in the frost point temperature range from -105 °C to -65 °C up to 0.65 MPa in nitrogen and argon, thus covering the full amount fraction range expected by PROMETH2O project (i.e., from 5 nmol/mol to 5 μmol/mol).
The generator, now in operation, meets and exceeds the expected performance targets and a thorough characterization is underway aiming to estimate the combined uncertainty. The capability is the first in Europe and among the few worldwide.
10th International Temperature Symposium (ITS10)
The 10th International Temperature Symposium will be held as a ‘live’, face-to-face Conference at the world-renowned Disney Hotel and Resort in Anaheim, California, USA in April of 2023 featuring a technical program covering topics in all areas related to Temperature Measurement.
First e-newsletter of the project.
Summary : Organization of the consortium ; Kick off meeting ; M9 meeting ; First congress attendance.
As part of the stakeholders engagement, a questionnaire-based survey was prepared on Google Forms and shared among 50 selected people representing their respective organizations. The aim of the questionnaire was to collect information about needs and priorities of the stakeholders' community concern.
The 2nd and 3rd of November : M18 project meeting
20IND06 - Metrology for trace water in ultra-pure process gases
• Review of the actions in the differents Work Packages
• Agenda is enclosed
The 27th of October : Steering Board meeting
• Review the project activity in line with stakeholder needs
• Review the status of the stakeholder survey
• Review any relevant aspects of project impact and engagement
PROMETH2O M9 progress meeting
This meeting, at M9 of the project, is dedicated to technical work progress of the project, as well as the management. This online meeting is hosted by INRIM.
Publishable Summary for 20IND06 PROMETH2O
The project started on June 1, 2021 for a period of 36 months.
The project will fill the knowledge gap regarding the metrological traceability - by developing traceable and improved measurement methods at challenging amount fractions between 5 ppm and 5 ppb for use in the production of pure process gases - and will demonstrate its applicability in the gas industry.
