  • Case study - Rapid removal of chloroethenes at industrial sites

    Description Air sparging with trenches had failed to remove groundwater and soil contamination at an industrial Superfund site in Piedmont soils in South Carolina.  The major contaminants of concern were cis 1,2-dichloroethene (DCE) and trichloroethene (TCE) ranging from 0.5 to 2.0 mg/L.  The treatment area was approximately 15,000 square feet. Ozone sparging was ...

  • A breath of nothing is decisive: AERZEN Turbo blowers with air bearings provide clear advantages compared to blowers with magnetic bearings

    Aeration tanks for wastewater treatment must be continuously provided with large air volumes. Turbo blowers offer here energy-efficient solutions. AERZEN has developed an amazingly simple method for the fast-rotating Turbo blowers - air bearings. The construction of AERZEN Turbo blowers is quite simple: A blade wheel, aerodynamically optimised and located directly on the motor shaft, rotates in ...

  • Used Furnaces & Ovens

    Industrial ovens and furnaces are both heated chambers used to process raw materials at higher temperatures than what can be obtained in open-air systems. There is a range of heat treatments possible with both industrial furnaces and ovens, and the main purpose of any heat treatment is to change the mechanical of physical properties of a material. Some examples of materials that benefit from heat ...

  • Treatment and Disposal of Air Pollution Control Residue

    What is APCr? Thermal waste management using Energy Recovery Facilities (ERFs) is now a well-managed and mature technology that is subject to environmental monitoring by a range of competent international bodies. These ERFs have been established as a means of diverting waste away from landfill disposal and for valorising the material and energy content of the waste. Counter to historic ...

  • E-Z Trays at Hard-to-Access Site - Case Study

    E-Z Tray® (U.S. Patent Number 5,518,668) Air Strippers have always been known for their ease of access and cleaning, but for this special site, an old industrial building in Brooklyn, New York, they also had to be installed without the use of any heavy equipment. The site was using a competitor's air stripper on the second floor of an older building and the units had become very ...

  • What does the environment have to do with diseases that affect the immune system?

    The rise in recent decades of diseases such as inflammatory bowel disease and rheumatoid arthritis suggests that factors in the environment are contributing. In 1932, New York gastroenterologist Burrill Crohn described an unusual disease in 14 adults. The patients had bouts of abdominal pain, bloody diarrhea, and lesions and scars on the bowel wall. Doctors in other parts of North America ...

  • A Critical Evaluation of the South African Air Quality Offsets Guideline

    There is wide recognition in South Africa to the link between the quality of life and quality of the air we breathe. The Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA) attempts to improve air quality through two key regulatory tools; emission limits, which regulate the maximum concentration of certain pollutants permissible within certain, ‘listed’ industrial stacks or vents, and ambient ...

  • 4 Signs Of Poor Indoor Air Quality To Watch For

    The quality of indoor air is something most of us take for granted. Unless there is something very specific and unusual going on around us, like heavy cleaning or maybe new construction, we don’t often think about whether or not there is anything wrong with the air we breathe as we go about our daily business. The truth is, though, that indoor air quality is often worse than ...

  • The challenges and benefits of local air quality monitoring

    A new generation of air quality monitors is now being offered to provide localised, real-time air quality readings – but the potential benefit is only just starting to be realised. It is generally accepted that whilst measurements from air quality reference stations are highly accurate, they are not sufficiently location-specific. Key pollutants – such as NO2 and PM2.5 ...

  • Links between noise and air pollution and socioeconomic status

    Air pollution and noise pollution have a negative impact on all of society — but some groups are more affected than others. Lower socioeconomic status is generally associated with poorer health, and both air and noise pollution contribute to a wide range of other factors influencing human health. But do these health inequalities arise because of increased exposure to pollution, increased ...
