The marine environment offers particular challenges related to salt water and moisture. Leading-edge, multi-stage stainless steel and aluminum filtration and separation systems are required aboard ships to protect gas turbine air intakes to radar-absorbing composite louvers on today’s most advanced vessels. Ship builders require the filtration and separation of salt water aerosols for HVAC and gas turbine engine intakes.
It has been established that organic aerosol (OA) makes up for a major fraction of fine particulate matter in all region of the atmosphere. This fraction accounts approximately for half of the total PM2.5 dry mass.1,2 Primary OA is directly emitted in the troposphere from anthropological and natural sources whereas secondary OA (SOA) is formed in-situ in the atmosphere from the oxidation of biogenic or anthropogenic gas-phase precursors and subsequent partitioning of the less volatile products into the particle...
To estimate the effects of aerosols on health and climate, it is essential to know their chemical composition. Sampling is done using two different types of aerosol collector. The first type are filter collectors that are based on the deposition of suspended particles on surfaces; the second type are powerful aerosol collectors.
Air is lifeblood. Daily we inhale approximately 15.000 liter. Still, the air contains invisible pollutants, which vary in its composition and concentration depending on the location. Especially the respirable particles with a diameter of less than 2.5 µm (PM 2.5) were considered to be particularly dangerous.
CTP systems can be found in every leading production company: thanks to the experience and the expertise developed in partnership with our customers for processes with inconsistent waste gas volumes; varying concentrations of organic components; gases contaminated with aerosols. CTP has installed systems for waste gas streams ranging from 1,000 to 200,000 Nm³/h. CTP supplies this industry with mainly catalytic systems, regenerative thermal oxidisers (RTO) and adsorbers. As the flue gases in this industry are...
The ultra-fast analysis capabilities of IONICON PTR-TOF instruments are essential for eddy covariance flux measurements, allowing to study deposition and emission rates of biogenic volatile organic compounds (BVOCs).
The correct functioning of HEPA filters is normally tested at the time of installation, as well as part of the routine maintenance programme. It is normally recommended that HEPA filters are checked at 14 month intervals or less, or immediately after filter changing. Where high efficiency filters are fitted, it is vital that the filter housing/sealing device does not allow particulate material to pass and thereby compromise the cleanroom environment that is being served. Testing is necessary since HEPA filters...
BioGill bioreactors are ideal for the biological stage of treating wastewater. The technology is suited to low-medium/ high strength wastewater from breweries, wineries, commercial kitchens, soft drink and confectionery producers, dairies, bakeries and canneries, as well as fruit, vegetable and meat processors.
Aerosol LIDARs can provide visibility measurement, including Slant Visual Range (SVR - visibility up the glide slope), Runway Visual Range (RVR), and Vertical Optical Range (VOR - visibility at the decision point). LIDARs offer remote detection, augmenting current sensors wherever visibility is an issue, including for airports, ports, and oil platforms. Using the same principle, they are also capable of detecting incoming fog.
High purity cell populations are a critical requirement for the successful manufacture of many cell therapies. The GigaSort Platform uses a multi-parallel, microfluidic multi-sorter design to achieve high throughput cell processing while remaining gentle on cells. A fully enclosed, disposable, fluidics set solves the safety and contamination problems that have plagued aerosol-based cell sorting technologies and offers levels of purity unmatched by immuno-magnetic bead separation.
Glycol dehydration is a liquid desiccant system for the removal of water from natural gas and natural gas liquids (NGL). It is the most common and economic means of water removal from these streams.Glycols typically seen in industry include triethylene glycol (TEG), diethylene glycol (DEG), ethylene glycol (MEG), and tetraethylene glycol (TREG). TEG is the most commonly used glycol in industry.
Flammable & combustible liquids are found in virtually every industrial plant. The quantities of these can vary from a few ounces in aerosol cans to several thousand gallons in bulk storage tanks. The principal hazard associated with storage is the accidental discharge or release of the flammable or combustible material into the surrounding area.
During the production, the conveyance and the filling of solid particles in the form of powders, bulk materials, granulates, pellets and many other shapes, dust is generated as a rule. This dust formation can lead to an impairment of the operational safety and the reliability of the production process, e. g. by means of inhalable dust fractions. The workplace hygiene can also be endangered, e. g. through dust accumulations.
