    Reverse Osmosis Water Testing

    Osmosis is the phenomenon of lower dissolved solids in water passing through a semi-permeable membrane into higher dissolved solids water until a near equilibrium is reached. Reverse Osmosis (RO) is a membrane process of purification which removes most of the the total dissolved solids (TDS) in water by reversing the natural process of osmosis. Pressure is applied to a TDS-concentrated solution against a semi-permeable membrane, causing pure water to diffuse through the membrane. RO has become an important process for a wide variety of applications including: medical, laboratory, desalination, industrial wastewater, Deionized (Dl) pretreatment, and drinking water.

    Boiler Water Testing / Cooling Tower Water Testing

    Boilers and cooling towers share two major water related problems: deposits and corrosion. As steam is generated by a boiler or water evaporating from a cooling tower, dissolved minerals are left behind, increasing the concentration of these minerals. Additional minerals are introduced via the water added to makeup the water lost to steam/evaporation. Eventually, the minerals reach a level (or cycle) of concentration that will cause either loss of efficiency due to scale or damage from corrosion. This level can be determined by the Ryznar or Langlier indices and correlated to a conductivity or TDS range. Most people recognize problems associated with corrosion. Effects from scale deposits, however, are equally important. For example, as little as 1/8` of scale can reduce the efficiency of a boiler by 18% or a cooling tower heat exchanger by 40%!

    Water Testing for Environmental Applications

    Keeping the water in our lakes, rivers, and streams clean requires monitoring of water quality at many points as it gradually makes its way from its source to our oceans. Over the years ever increasing environmental concerns and regulations have heightened the need for increased diligence and tighter restrictions on wastewater quality. Control of water pollution was once concerned mainly with treating wastewater before it was discharged from a manufacturing facility into the nation`s waterways. Today, in many cases, there are restrictions on wastewater that is discharged to city sewer systems or to other publicly owned treatment facilities. Many jurisdictions even restrict or regulate the runoff of stormwater — affecting not only industrial and commercial land, but also residential properties as well.

    Gas monitoring instruments and systems for titanium dioxide

    Titanium dioxide is the most important white pigment used in the polymer industry. It is widely used, because it efficiently scatters visible light, thereby imparting whiteness, brightness, and opacity when incorporated into a plastic product.

    Carbon capture and storage (CCS) applications

    Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) is an emerging method of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of power plants. In a process called ‘scrubbing’, the carbon dioxide emissions can be absorbed into chemical solvents consisting of amines or carbonates. Scrubbing is a well-established method of carbon capture, with virtually every commercial CO2 capture plant in operation using this process. In the process, the first step is the removal of impurities from the flue gas, such as hydrocarbons and oxides of both nitrogen and sulfur (NOx and SOx). Next the purified gas is passed through an absorption column filled with the chemical scrubbing solvent. The solvent reacts with the carbon dioxide and selectively absorbs it from the gas stream. When CO2-rich solvent is heated, the carbon dioxide is released as a nearly pure gas.

    Gas monitoring instruments and systems for print factories

    Typical modern printing processes utilize solvent-based dyes. The evaporation of the dye solvents into the ambient air during the printing process may expose the workers to various chemicals. Depending on the type of solvents in case, the solvents have different long term exposure limits, which should be obeyed. Component specific measurements are necessary to protect the workers from exposure while avoiding unnecessary interruptions to the printing process from false alarms.

    Fluoride emissions monitoring in aluminum smelters

    Production of aluminum from its ores at aluminum smelters results in carbon dioxide CO2, carbon monoxide CO, sulfur dioxide SO2, and hydrogen fluoride HF gas emissions during the electrolytic process phase to the atmosphere. The gas emissions need to be monitored. Typically the smelters have emission limit values (ELVs) for sulfur dioxide and hydrogen fluoride emissions. These emissions should be measured accurately and with good precision, to ensure the smelter does not exceed its emission limit values. In addition several fluoride compounds may be produced in the electrolytic bath in the event of an oxygen shortage. These compounds include carbon tetrafluoride CF4, hexafluoroethane C2F6, sulfur hexafluoride SF6, and silicon tetrafluoride SiF4. These additional emission components are problematic, as they have high Global Warming Potential (GWP) values. The GWP is a relative measure designed to demonstrate how much heat a greenhouse gas (GHG) traps in the atmosphere. Emission of one kilogram of carbon tetrafluoride into the atmosphere today has the potential of heating the atmosphere as much as 7,000 kilograms of carbon dioxide over the next 100 years.

    Particulate matter, halogens and aerosols

    Without CTP's innovative upstream systems, regenerative thermal oxidation would not be possible, which would render the waste gas purification cost-intensive and inefficient. Continuous burning off in the RTOs eliminates the deposits which periodically clog the ceramic honeycomb blocks.

    Industrial air pollution control for the metals and mining

    Since mankind`s early beginnings, mining, metallurgy and the subsequent processing of natural resources have evolved into one of the most significant industries. Known as `heavy-industry`, this branch plays an important economic role in most countries. The scope of applications for CTP systems ranges from the mining of natural resources (e.g. bauxite and gold-ore mining), through the production of acetylene gas from coal and calcium carbonate, to the aluminium and steel industry and their foundries.

    Compressed air, gas and vacuum solutions for water and waste water treatment

    There are many options to apply methods to avoid damaging the environment. In the case of wastewater e.g. the ventilation of the sediment tank or the pressure ventilation of biological wastewater treatment systems. The oxygen introduction is important, for deep wastewater tanks, wastewater treatment systems with standard aeration tanks or natural clarification ponds alike. If the wastewater has already entered the natural cycle, ventilating lakes and rivers prevents additional contamination. When treating drinking water, rinsing the filters with compressed air ensures that perfect water is provided and natural water reserves are not used excessively.
