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: 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.
Common Commercial Air Problems: Managers of large office buildings today are searching for ways to lower energy costs, improve indoor air quality, and lower a building’s environmental impact. The same is true of those responsible for school, university, healthcare, health club, and hospitality facilities.
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...
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.
Common Museum Air Problems: Museums, art galleries, archives and archival exhibits feature precious objects that play a vital role in cultures around the world. The preservation industry must address indoor air quality. A long-term view drives requirements to prevent deterioration in the life of these treasures. Recognition of multiple sources of pollution may include indoor pollutants such as cleaning chemicals, materials (paint), and pollutants brought in by visitors and employees. Outdoor sources might be...
Air purification near infrastructural facilities, such as tunnels, bus stops, and other busy (covered) traffic junctions. ENS Infra purifies the air at infrastructural facilities, such as bus tunnels, bus stops and other busy (covered) traffic junctions that are characterized by a high vehicle density.
Common Indoor Air Quality Problems in Schools: For the most part, schools are located in close proximity to the students. Students are driven to schools either on a bus or by a parent in a vehicle. Therefore, in the morning and after school there are high air pollution levels. If the school is near a manufacturing plant, a highway, a wastewater treatment plant, an airport, or other source of air pollution, the kids breath it in. Schools are chronically stretched for money and air quality is assumed to be good...
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...
Data centers store and protect such valuable digital information as bank accounts, streaming movies, websites, libraries, healthcare data, and government statistics. All of those computer electronics are vulnerable to corrosion caused by air pollution.
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.”
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.
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.
The location of the files in an appropriate environment is a necessary condition to preserve them properly. There are numerous studies that identify environmental pollution as the main problem for the conservation of historical objects. Acid gases, such as sulfur, nitrogen and carbon oxides, are the most widespread form of pollution, and they acidify archival materials, accelerating deterioration. The powder has hygroscopic properties, which results in an increase in the humidity of the material, causing the...
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.
Applied to domestic refrigeration, Bioconservacion’s technology increases the shelf-life of fruit and vegetables, providing benefits to equipment manufacturers and consumers. As they mature, fruit and vegetables naturally produce ethylene. Ethylene accelerates maturation which is why systems that eliminate ethylene, VOCs and fungus spores from the environment are especially beneficial, as they lengthen the useful life of fruit and vegetables increasing shelf life by up to 25%.
