Carus Corporation is the manufacturer of a series of manganese based catalysts, called CARULITE® catalysts. These Hopcalite type catalysts are used for breathable air purification, emission air purification, and process air purification.
Problem: The need for uncontaminated, controlled atmospheres is essential. Throughout the industry, the need for uncontaminated, controlled atmospheres is essential. This is especially true since lead-free standards that removed lead from solder were implemented, namely RoHS. Electronic equipment is now even more sensitive to gaseous contaminants that cause corrosion.
Hospitals and other healthcare facilities are where people go to when their immune systems are at their weakest. Their bodies may be fighting a flu virus or cancer or have open wounds making them extremely vulnerable. This is no time for pathogens to be wafting about in the air and HVAC systems. One virus or bacterium landing on an open wound can cause an infection that could be life threatening or cause an otherwise successful operation to go very badly for the patient.
Problem: Wastewater processes create gaseous by-products that corrode sensitive electronic components. Wastewater plants are notable for their rotten egg odor, caused by hydrogen sulfide. H2S is highly corrosive to electrical systems and electronics throughout a plant. Factor in aging equipment and infrastructure, and the resultant decrease in uptime, and costly repairs or replacements, harms the bottom line.
Problem: Any instance of critical equipment repair or failure due to the gaseous corrosion of sensitive electronics is very expensive. The power generation sector is an essential industry. Developing countries are expanding theirs to meet increasing demand while developed countries deal with aging infrastructure and increased capital spending.
Problem: During manufacturing, harmful chemical by-products are released into the air. The odor common to paper mills is sulfur dioxide, but the bleaching process can also release chlorine. These pollutants create corrosion and irreversible damage to such critical electronic components as integrated circuits, control panels, pin connectors, and heavy-duty electrical switches. Corrosion damage accounts for nearly 40 percent of equipment failures in industrial applications. Down time for a mill is very costly, so...
Air purification of ambient and indoor air in production facilities, such as the wood, stone and metal processing industry. In productiehallen binnen bijvoorbeeld de hout-, steen- en metaalverwerkende industrie, kan fijnstof of verbrandingsrook ontstaan. ENS Industries biedt oplossingen om uw omgevings- en binnenlucht schoon te houden.
Ironically, transit facilities such as airports, bus stations, and train stations are threatened by vehicle exhaust, road dust, crowds of people, and high levels of traffic. The soot from diesel exhausts consists of tiny particles that get caught in lungs and can cause health problems. Partially burned fuels contain carcinogenic hydrocarbons. Inside airports, for example, there are food courts, round-the-clock cleaning operations, and outside air pollution entering with the ventilation air. Some airports have...
Problem: Chlorine gas is the major source of toxic release incidents. Facilities storing large quantities of chlorine must invest in emergency standby equipment to prevent accidental chemical releases. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Risk Management Program for Chemical Accident Release Prevention “requires regulated facilities to develop and implement appropriate risk management programs to minimize the frequency and severity of chemical plant accidents.”
Within the industrial sector there are specific installations which should pay maximum attention to the protection of their control rooms against corrosion. This is because their activities generate highly corrosive gasses which need to be eliminated in case they affect the functioning of critical electrical equipment. This corrosion compromises the efficiency and safety and can affect the production process itself.
The pharmaceutical industry is one of the most important and growing industries worldwide. Personal well-being is becoming ever more important, and the accelerating ageing effect consequently gives rise to increased expenditure on pharmaceuticals and medicine. CTP air pollution control systems not only focus on pharmaceuticals and generics, but also on applications in medical supplies, ranging from bandages and associated materials to medical and plastic implants.
Quality of life and well-being are, more than ever, important issues for consumers. The `wellness` concept has changed the food industry: Today, all food manufacturers are committed to increasing the nutritional value of their products, while constantly improving the taste. Their innovations require continuously inventive solutions in air pollution control.
Air and Gas Treatment: the Challenge Treatment of air and process gases typically has two fundamental drivers: regulatory compliance and/or product purity. Many industrial operations face increasingly stringent discharge limits on volatile organic compounds (VOCs). From a process purity standpoint, many process gases contain undesired impurities that can be removed with Jacobi’s EcoSorb and AddSorb products.
Environments with an excess of suspended particles and/or contaminating gasses in the air may be unhealthy and might even cause harmful effects, increasing the risk of developing illnesses. To address these risks, vast numbers of public installations and buildings must provide air filtration solutions to ensure a high quality of air inside the building to safeguard the health and comfort of the occupants.
Common Industrial Air Problems: ProMark is the expert in neutralizing corrosive gases that eat away at electronic and electrical infrastructure in industrial environments. We destroy the corrosive gases and capture harmful particulates. There is a range of corrosive gases, both acidic and caustic. One other common gas is chlorine. Chlorine requires a chemistry very different chemistry than what is needed for acid and caustic gases.
Problem: Municipal wastewater treatment facilities discharge nuisance odors. Municipal wastewater treatment facilities discharge odors as the result of the processes of collecting and treating wastewater. The plant is charged with treating air emissions and nuisance odors in compliance with environmental regulations. Mostly they are responsible for solving complaints from nearby neighbors who complain. They also have corrosion problems as addressed in a previous solution statement.
