Sulphur Dioxide Sensor for Exploring Environmental issues in Schools

January 11, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
ScienceScope have improved the Sulphur Dioxide sensor for schools. As one of the UKs leading developers of datalogging equipment that provides technology-based science learning solutions, ScienceScope have produced a Sulphur Dioxide sensor for measuring environments and gas production.

The Sulphur Dioxide gas sensor measures in range of 0-20ppm. This sensor is ideal for measuring the environmental factors within the local environment of the school, how various chemicals/materials give off the gas and the effects on this gas as a pollutant.

Classroom investigations with the ScienceScope Sulphur Dioxide sensor can help give practical demonstrations on how to measure SO2, the changes in environmental factors, waste products and pollution, and aid you in discussions on how science works. Developing the concepts with your students on the effects that gasses have on our air quality, life on earth, global warming, how chemicals effect living things and the maintenance of life. What the effects of the production of petroleum, acid rain and volcanoes have on our lives and how can we as good citizens change the way we live, work and play.

The Sulphur Dioxide gas sensor from ScienceScope is an ideal tool to illustrate how different chemical reactions can happen whether it be in preserving fruit or alcoholic drinks to the production of fertiliser and oil refining.

· Range: 0 to 20ppm
· Shortest recommended recording interval: 1s
· Resolution: 0.1ppm of reading
