Measurement of water quality in coastal regions and estuaries is critical in the characterization of hypoxic ‘dead zones’ as a result of nutrient loading and algal blooms in the water bodies. Sediment loading analysis through turbidity measurement is also important for coastal trend identification and modeling. Hydrolab and Sea-bird Coastal offer a variety of multiparameter water quality instrumentation and nutrient sensors for long-term coastal applications.
Oxidation Reduction Potential or Redox is the activity or strength of oxidizers and reducers in relation to their concentration. Oxidizers accept electrons, reducers lose electrons. Examples of oxidizers are: chlorine, hydrogen peroxide, bromine, ozone, and chlorine dioxide. Examples of reducers are sodium sulfite, sodium bisulfate and hydrogen sulfide. Like acidity and alkalinity, the increase of one is at the expense of the other.
Anyone and everyone who is responsible for operating and maintaining a swimming pool or spa has to test, monitor, and control complex, interdependent chemical factors that affect the quality of water bathers are immersed in. Additionally, aquatic facilities operators must be familiar with all laws, regulations, and guidelines governing what these parameters should be.
Evaporative gas cooling and conditioning systems use specially engineered atomizing nozzles that introduce a controlled amount of finely atomized water into the hot gas stream to reduce and/or maintain gas temperature. The water evaporates completely while absorbing heat from the gases, which results in free-flowing dust, zero liquid discharge, and minimal or no problems with scale buildup on the walls.
From cutting-edge MABR wastewater treatment to containerized desalination, Fluence delivers cost-effective and sustainable solutions for commercial customers worldwide. Fluence has more than 30 years of experience in the design, construction, and operation of water and wastewater treatment plants for commercial clients, including resorts, golf courses, commercial buildings, and campuses.
Odor from industries is a growing problem as cities are expanding closer to industrial areas. The production at food processing industries, fish factories, biodiesel plants and the like can create odors that might be a nuisance to the surrounding area. Odor control systems has thus become important to industries located closed to urban areas.
As is the case for many industrial manufacturing processes, emissions are best destroyed through the use of thermal and catalytic oxidation technologies. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) are destroyed through the use of high temperature combustion with direct heat recovery. The harmful air pollutants are converted to heat, water vapor and carbon dioxide, creating a destruction efficiency greater than 99%.
Fluence has decades of experience providing sustainable treatment solutions for power industry process water and effluent. Industrialization and population growth are spurring the demand for power around the world, putting pressure on fuel and water resources. At the same time, power producers face strict pollution and air-quality controls.
The remediation division of Anguil Environmental Systems (formerly known as Global Technologies) is focused on treating emissions and water contaminants extracted from below the earths` surface. Formed shortly after the 1990 Clean Air Act targeted emissions associated with the extraction of polluted compounds from contaminated sites, Global subsurface remediation equipment has been successfully applied on contaminated sites in North and South America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
The OSEI Corporation manufactures a first response bioremediation product Oil Spill Eater II that has been used to clean up leaks around storage tanks from valve breaks, line breaks and small holes in tanks, as well as for tank sludge clean outs. OSE II has been cleaning up oil/hydrocarbon based spills including heavy oils, sludge, drilling mud, tailings as well as refined product since 1989.
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...
Contamination of circuit boards can bring about severe degradation of insulation resistance and dielectric strength. Cleanliness of completed circuit boards is, therefore, of vital interest. For those companies who have established circuit board cleaning procedures, the MIL Spec P-28809 has been used as a guideline for control. Now a simple `on line` test for the relative measurement of ionic contamination has been developed. This fast and economical method for testing circuit board cleanliness uses a Myron L...
Years ago, high purity water was used only in limited applications. Today, deionized (Dl) water has become an essential ingredient in hundreds of applications including: medical, laboratory, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, electronics manufacturing, food processing, plating, countless industrial processes, and even the final rinse at the local car wash.
Renewable energy plants are expanding and developing at a significant rate in North America and throughout the world. In the United States, the Clean Air Act for reformulated gasoline (RFG) mandates a 2wt.% oxygen requirement, driving the demand for more production. Ethanol is the most viable additive because it is a clean-burning fuel produced from renewable, domestic biomass sources. However, the production of these fuels can result in unacceptable levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), carbon monoxide...
