Recent Work

Isokinetic Sampling System

AMS are able to design, build and commission systems for taking unaltered particulate samples from stacks using isokinetic sampling techniques and bespoke multi-probe sampling assemblies to both comply with Environment Agency guidelines and to meet specific customer operation and maintenance requirements.

Total Oxidation Units

AMS can produce bespoke systems for periodic and/or continuous emissions monitoring that meet current UK and International standards. These systems have been developed in conjunction with Health Physics and are used widely throughout the nuclear industry to provide portable sampling of gaseous Carbon 14, Sulphur 35 and Tritium (3H).

Moisture Measurement Systems

AMS recently designed and built a number of moisture measurement systems that included discreet control and alarm logic, hardwired key lock systems and segregated channel monitoring instrumentation. The design and manufactured systems had to meet the safety case requirements and was fully seismically and EMC tested.
