    Processing of LCD screens

    The safe extraction of valuable raw materials: robots automatically dismantle monitors containing mercury, while protecting workers’ health at the same time. According to initial projections, around three million LCD screens will be recycled in Germany in 2016. However, their backlighting system often contains mercury, which means they are classified as 'hazardous waste' in accordance with the EWC, and as 'Collection Group 3' in accordance with the Electrical and Electronic Appliance Law. They also contain...

    Gas analyzers and monitoring systems for waste incineration sector

    Waste-to-energy (WtE) or energy-from-waste (EfW) through incineration of waste is on the one hand an effective way of producing electricity and heat, while on the other hand it is disposing of possibly hazardous or unrecyclable waste. Its purpose is not to compete with waste recycling, reuse and prevention, but to complement them. After all, incineration not only reduces the amount of hazardous waste, but may also generate energy through the gases released in the process. Read about our solutions for waste-to-energ...

    Air pollution, emission and process monitoring systems for water & liquids

    Mercury is one of the most toxic elements that may be found in natural water bodies and can negatively affect living organisms, human health as well as drinking water quality. In addition, water is the main transportation and transformation pathway of mercury into the environment and living organisms. Mercury analysis in water is of great importance, in order to monitor water quality and associated environmental stresses. Mercury is also known to be a persistent, bio-accumulative toxin, indicating that its...

    Activated carbons solutions for flue gas & mercury sector

    In many industrialized nations it is common practice to use incineration methods for waste disposal. There are also ways to recover energy from the process. However, operating an incinerator requires strict adherence to environmental regulations. Hazardous, clinical and waste to energy incinerators can benefit from our EcoSorb range of activated carbon. Specially designed to adsorb unwelcome airborne compounds from flue gases.

    Continuous emissions monitoring solutions for H2S monitoring

    To monitor H2S can be difficult. The UV absorption is without structure and the IR absorption has strong interference from H2O. The traditional way has been to remove all SO2 from the sample while keeping H2S, then convert H2S to SO2 ,and finally measure SO2 which then effectively yields the H2S concentration. The instruments used have often been ambient air SO2 analysers and extractive dilution systems. However, it is not unusual to experience practical problems with these type of installations.

    Mercury monitoring for measuring mercury content in hair

    Measurement of mercury content in hair is a convenient technique to estimate dietary exposure without having to handle tissues or bodily fluids. As the mercury present in hair is comprised of different mercury species, full speciation of the compounds is needed for complete understanding. Environment Canada published a technique where treating a basic digestion with Cd2+ in the presence of cysteine allowed analysis of inorganic mercury and total mercury using a Tekran 2600 System. Methyl mercury was then calculated...

    Mercury monitoring for isotopic abundance by the ICP-MS

    Studies of real-world ecosystems are very complex. Mercury species inter-conversion as well as mercury deposition and evasion are constantly occurring. One technique to help sort out the processes is to trace reactions using natural Hg isotopes. Either by enriching a system with a particular isotope or determination of isotopic ratios as a technique of source identification, isotopes are a powerful tool for investigation. The Tekran 2600 Total Mercury and Tekran 2700 Methyl Mercury systems are designed to couple...

    Air pollution, emission and process monitoring systems for natural gas

    Natural gas often contains mercury at concentrations that vary from below 1 to above 10000 µg/m³. Mercury is both toxic and potentially damaging: it can corrode or embrittle common gas plant components. Gas processors require safe, reliable and effective mercury removal process solutions in order to achieve requisite sales gas quality specifications and protect cryogenic equipment. Our monitoring solutions are used to detect and precisely measure mercury levels in natural gas at various locations...

    Mercury monitoring for ocean cruises

    Researchers at Battelle Pacific Northwest Laboratory used a Tekran 2600 on a 2009 ship cruise. Due to the low levels of mercury in water, Tekran provided them with a custom 2600 Event Table to pre-concentrate mercury from multiple samples to push the detection limit lower. When planning an ocean bound cruise, instrument dependability is a paramount concern. At sea, there is no possibility to return instrumentation to the manufacturer for quick repair. The Tekran 2600 has a well deserved reputation for dependability...

    Mercury monitoring for mercury flux measurement

    The Tekran 2537 has been used in numerous published studies to measure the deposition or evasion of mercury from natural or contaminated surfaces (i.e. flux measurements). It is anticipated that many mercury flux measurements will be needed in the future to assess the impact of climate change on mercury cycling in the environment. There are two basic ways to do mercury flux measurements. First, the dynamic flux chamber method utilizes a custom enclosure, with controlled air flow, to measure the inlet and outlet...
