Measurement solution for soil chamber gas flux

by Protea Limited     based in Middlewich, UNITED KINGDOM

Closed chamber gas flux measurements can be made with Protea FTIR analysers to allow researchers in the field of atmospheric gas analysis from agricultural and livestock to measure evolved gases such as N2O, CO2, CO, NH3, and CH4. Nitrous oxide (N2O) and Methane (CH4) emissions from soil, plant and livestock are especially important gases to measure, given their high potential as greenhouse gases (GHGs). NH3, whilst not a greenhouse gas on the scale of N2O, CH4 and CO2, is a major emission from agricultural, such as after the spreading of liquid manure, and steps are required to measure and reduce the NH3 emissions and the effects they have on the ecosystem.

Measurement solution for Biomass combustion research

by Protea Limited     based in Middlewich, UNITED KINGDOM

The use of alternative combustion fuels that provide a renewable source of energy is a major area of research and investment. Sources of biomass fuels include virgin wood, energy crops, agricultural residues, food waste and industrial waste. Controlling the combustion process of any new fuel and keeping track of the biomass fuel emissions of combustion by-products is important to users of these new fuels.

Measurement solution for fire testing for the railway industry

by Protea Limited     based in Middlewich, UNITED KINGDOM

A lot of research is carried out in laboratory and on real fires as to the gaseous substances produced in fire effluent. Measurement principles using analytical instrumentation are becoming more widely used in fire testing, due to the quick, real-time nature of the measurements. ISO 19702 is an international standard developed for the use of FTIR analysers in the analysis of gas from fire effluents. Further to this, local test standards such as DIN 5510, applicable to the railway industry, can provide further requirements for gases to be measured.

Measurement solution for liquid TiCl4 vanadium oxychloride monitor

by Protea Limited     based in Middlewich, UNITED KINGDOM

The chloride process of titanium dioxide (TiO2) pigment manufacture first converts titania-containing ores to TiCl4 via a carbochlorination reaction at a high temperature in a chlorinator in the presence of chlorine gas and petroleum coke added as a reductant.

Measurement solution for siloxane monitoring in biogas and landfill

by Protea Limited     based in Middlewich, UNITED KINGDOM

The generation of electricity from municipal digesters and land fill is of increasing interest, as the biogas can allow for a form of renewable energy. Organosilicon compounds often find their way into land-fill or digester gases as siloxanes. Siloxanes are low-level hazards to the atmosphere in terms of their emissions, however when they are combusted in gas engines the hard silica that is produced is very harsh to the moving parts of the gas engine.

Methane gas leak detection

by Opgal Optronic Industries Ltd.     based in Karmiel, ISRAEL

Methane emissions from oil and natural gas systems is primarily the result of normal operations or system disruptions. These hazardous emissions can be cost-effectively reduced by upgrading technologies or equipment, and by improving operations. However, in order to do so, one must be able to detect and identify the existence of a fugitive gas leak. Opgal`s EyeC Gas Thermal Imager for gas leak detection, is one of the most advanced cameras used to detect leaks. Thus, it becomes a required tool in mitigating and reducing fugitive emissions of methane gas.

Measurement solution for QAL2 EN 14181

by Protea Limited     based in Middlewich, UNITED KINGDOM

BS EN 14181 is a quality assurance standard relevant to plants operating under the Large Combustion Plant (LCPD) and Waste Incineration (WID) Directives. Quality Assurance Level 2 (QAL2) of this standard involves the parallel testing of the plant automated measurement systems (AMS) against a certified test house, making measurements with a comparative standard.

Measurement solution for acrylates speciation

by Protea Limited     based in Middlewich, UNITED KINGDOM

A customer had a requirement for continuous Ethyl Acrylate monitoring. The process operations emit multiple Acrylate species, all at low concentrations, but only Ethyl Acrylate being reportable to the EA under the terms of the IPC permit. A 204M FTIR analyser was deployed and a chemometric model was built specifically to target Acrylates, with the purpose of separating and accurately quantify the target Ethyl Acrylate species.

VOCs Fugitive emissions detection

by Opgal Optronic Industries Ltd.     based in Karmiel, ISRAEL

An oil refinery or petroleum refinery is an industrial process plant where crude oil is processed and refined into more useful petroleum products, such as naphtha, gasoline, diesel fuel, asphalt base, heating oil, kerosene, etc,. Oil refineries are typically large, sprawling industrial complexes with extensive piping running throughout, carrying streams of fluids between large chemical processing units. The refining process releases a number of different chemicals into the atmosphere mostly Hydrocarbons which cause severe health and safety hazards. Opgal`s EyeCGas Thermal Imager can detect the leaking gases from a distance and help reducing the threats

Odor Control for Food Processing

by OMI Industries (OMI)     based in Long Grove, ILLINOIS (USA)

Safely Eliminate Odors Created By Food Processing

Malodors generated by the food processing industry vary enormously since they can be generated in the production, processing, and wastewater treatment areas of the plant. Regardless of the source, all of these odors may be offensive to the public.

Odor Control for Municipal Waste

by OMI Industries (OMI)     based in Long Grove, ILLINOIS (USA)

Eliminating Industrial Odors Naturally Is Our Civic Duty

To handle the odor control needs of municipal and government agencies, OMI Industries has created MUNI® odor neutralizing product. Similar in many ways to its siblings in the Ecosorb® products line, Muni odor control product uses Van Der Waals forces to chemically react with malodor molecules to eliminate odors combined with a natural formulation that makes it safe to work with. What’s more, the Muni® product is surprisingly economical to use. It was specially developed to meet the tight budget limitations faced by municipalities without skimping on industrial odor control effectiveness.

Odor Control for Tank Cleaning

by OMI Industries (OMI)     based in Long Grove, ILLINOIS (USA)

When It Comes To Odor Management, Simply Cleaning The Tank Isn’t Enough To Remove The Odors

Prior to cleaning, storage tanks are vented to the atmosphere in order to reduce the internal gas content to a level below its lower explosion limit (LEL). This permits safe worker access. During venting, odors escape into the atmosphere creating a nuisance to nearby residents, businesses, and employees. Furthermore, storage tank cleaning results in production downtime that reduces plant profitability.

Odor Control for Refining

by OMI Industries (OMI)     based in Long Grove, ILLINOIS (USA)

You Refine The Fuel, We’ll Remove The Odors

Oil refineries and petrochemical plants may generate large volumes of odor from the processing and refining of different fuels. Sulfides, mercaptans, and hydrocarbon compounds are all closely related to the oil industry. The odors generated from these industrial compounds are of a high nuisance value and generally create concern among local air boards and the public.

algae control in drinking water plants

by LG Sonic     based in Zoetermeer, NETHERLANDS

By controlling algae, cyanobacteria and fouling LG Sonic can efficiently reduce taste and odor problems in a treatment plant. The performance of a drinking water treatment plant is consistent with the amount ol contamination in the water. Growth of algae and other fouling in and before a treatment plant can cause various problems within the process. In general, these issues are related with taste or odor of the water. Growth of algae, cyanobacteria and bacteria within the basins of the plant itself, increase the demand of chemicals or filtration and in turn creating problems with THM (trihalomethane) formation. Other common issues are growth of toxin and geosmin producing cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) within the intake reservoir or dam. These molecules give the water an unpleasant `earthy ` taste.
