Mold Control

by AgriAir Equipment     based in Mukilteo, WASHINGTON (USA)

Controlling mold spores and bio-contaminants is a challenge for indoor gardeners that requires attention to detail and specialized equipment. An average cubic foot of air has around 100,000 mold spores. When sufficient moisture is available, mold grows. AgriAir Purifiers control and eliminate Aspergillus and many other types of spores, mildew, odors, and VOC as well as sanitize the air and hard surfaces from biological contaminants generated by organic decay during the entire growing process. AgriAir Purifiers generate ionized-hydro-peroxides, which result in a proactive method of indoor air sanitation and promote organic garden production. This purification method eliminates the need for the use of additional chemicals or biocides that generally contain toxic compounds. AgriAir products can safely be used in occupied spaces throughout the entire grow cycle all while effectively destroying mold spores and other harmful bio-contaminants.

Testing Fume Hood Flow Dynamics using SF6 as a Tracer Gas

by Spectro Scientific     based in Chelmsford, MASSACHUSETTS (USA)

A safe laboratory environment requires an effective method for clearing toxic material from fume hoods. Since all handling of toxic materials is completed in these hoods, it is critical to have a procedure to evaluate their operation to assure adequate protection for laboratory workers. The InfraRan Specific Vapor Analyzer, factory calibrated for SF6, is an ideal instrument for measuring fume hood efficiency in accordance with ASHRAE and other standards. Manufacturers identify the flow dynamics (factors that affect air flow in the hood and performance with air) using the ratings AM (as manufactured), AI (as installed), and AU (as used). A fume hood evaluation conducted under its operational environment is critical, as these tests will indicate any installation shortcomings as well as direct workers in proper laboratory hood techniques.

Waste recovery for energy & utilities

by Tetronics (International) Limited     based in Swindon, UNITED KINGDOM

In order to stay competitive and to be seen as being environmentally responsible, energy and utility companies are always looking for alternative routes to generate power. One method of doing this is by leveraging waste to energy incineration plants linked to the processing municipal solid waste. During this incineration process, APC residues, which are a mixture of fly ash, organic pollutants (including dioxins and furans), are generated and are classified as hazardous waste and have a detrimental environmental impact. This fly ash is subject to Air Pollution Control as it is contaminated with extremely high concentrations of heavy metals and toxic compounds like dioxins, linked to cancer and other health problems. Tetronics offers valuable waste recovery plants that can eliminate the hazardous element within the fly ash while generating an inert building aggregate with the remaining material.

Laser & Plasma Cutting

by DiversiTech     based in Montreal, QUEBEC (CANADA)

Laser & Plasma Cutting fumes are Unbreathable. Using laser or plasma cutting equipment on either metals or plastics introduces several known carcinogens, such as fused silica and ethyl acrylate, into the air. Occupational Health and Safety organizations recommend reducing personal exposure to the lowest level feasible. Hand held plasma cutting provides metalworkers with a quick and fast way to cut large sheets of metal material. However, plasma and oxy cutting generate a large amount of sparks, slag and fume which can contain different pollutants depending on the type of material being cut. Diversitech's line of downdraft tables incorporating the plasma cutting kit are designed to extinguish the sparks and slag, using heavy duty steel bar grating and a gravel filled baffle tray while the blower pulls away all of the toxic plasma cutting fumes. When considering how to capture and filter the fumes generated from large CNC plasma cutting and laser cutting machines, a large central dust

Painting & Coating

by DiversiTech     based in Montreal, QUEBEC (CANADA)

Paint fumes are Unbreathable. Spray Painting VOCs and Powder Coating dust are both harmful pollutants which are produced during painting operations. The volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted from paint can cause respiratory issues and require proper ventilation to remove harmful gasses from the work area. Powder Coating lines and spray painting produce dangerous fumes and dusts which need to be filtered or exhausted outside your facility. Industrial coatings and chemicals can produce toxic VOCs and foul odors which can effect worker`s health and reduce productivity. Some of the most common coatings are polymers which include polyurethane, epoxy and moisture-cure urethane. Many different industries required the use of glues, adhesives, solvents and different chemical agents in their production process, but are unsure of the best way to handle this nuisance. Exhausting fumes outside may be an option when VOCs are extremely dangerous and odorous but companies must also comply with EPA guidelines which regulate which gases can be emitted. In cold climates and in air-conditioned facilities, capturing, filtering and recirculating fumes can provide huge energy savings preventing costly heat loss and energy intensive air makeup systems. Utilizing activated carbon granules can allow operators to filter VOCs and odors from painting and cutting applications. Different quantities and types of carbon modules are required depending upon the contaminant. Contact Diversitech with an MSDS sheet detailing your chemical`s characteristics for an evaluation of your workplace air quality problem.?

Sulfide Oxidation with Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2)

by USP Technologies     based in Atlanta, GEORGIA (US) (USA)

Sulfide Odor Control Sulfide is found throughout the environment as a result of both natural and industrial processes. Most sulfide found in nature was produced biologically (under anaerobic conditions) and occurs as free hydrogen sulfide (H2S) - characterized by its rotten egg odor. We are most likely to encounter biogenic H2S in sour groundwaters, swamps and marshes, natural gas deposits, and sewage collection/treatment systems. Manmade sources of H2S typically occur as a result of natural materials containing sulfur (e.g., coal, gas and oil) being refined into industrial products. For a variety of reasons - aesthetics (odor control), health (toxicity), ecological (oxygen depletion in receiving waters), and economic (corrosion of equipment and infrastructure) - sulfide laden wastewaters must be handled carefully and remediated before they can be released to the environment. Typical discharge limits for sulfide are < 1 mg/L. Sulfide Treatment Alternatives There are dozens of alternatives for treating sulfide laden waters, ranging from simple air stripping (for the low levels present in groundwaters) to elaborate sulfur recovery plants (used to treat several tons per day at refineries and coal burning power plants). There are processes based on biology (using compost filters, scrubbing media, or inhibition/disinfection), chemistry (oxidation, precipitation, absorption, and combination), and physics (adsorption, volatilization, and incineration). Each process occupies a niche which is often defined by the scale and continuity of treatment, whether the sulfide is in solution or is a gas, the concentration of sulfide involved, and the disposition of the sulfide containing medium. However, for reasons relating to convenience and flexibility, chemical oxidation (using hydrogen peroxide) continues to grow in its scope of application. Treatment with Hydrogen Peroxide While other peroxygens such as permonosulfuric (Caro’s) acid, peracetic acid, and persulfates will oxidize sulfide, their use for this application is overkill. Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is considerably simpler and more cost-effective. H2O2 may control sulfides in two ways, depending on the application: Prevention - by providing dissolved oxygen which inhibits the septic conditions which lead to biological sulfide formation; and Destruction - by oxidizing sulfide to elemental sulfur or sulfate ion.
