Project Description:Process Measurement Device


The project focused on the design and build of an in-line prototype device to be used by industrial facilities to monitor the quality of cooling and lubricating fluids. Several properties of the fluid are measured such as temperature and contamination levels. The resulting data is collected, analyzed, and stored. The device incorporates a human interface using a liquid crystal display with push button inputs. Data is accessible through an Ethernet port, a USB connection or a secure digital card.

Student Research...

Suttons Bay, Michigan

Nick conducted a fish population survey in the rapids of the St. Mary's river, just east of the International Bridge that connects the US and Canada. He determined fish timing and their use of the rapids by collecting samples throughout the summer and fall of 2009, using a screw trap on loan from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Steimel found that many different species are not only in the rapids, but spawn there as well. His research helps determine the diversity of fish as well when their use of spawning habitat is at its highest in that section of the river.
