    Monitoring of fuels in stormwater

    The Situation

    A major pipeline company has large storage tank farms throughout the Western States. The pipeline company transports, stores, blends additives, and distributes gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel to retail service stations and airports. Due to the quantity and movement of fuel at these facilities, there is always the potential for fuel spills. These facilities prevent out of compliance discharge by capturing all stormwater in storm drains, which is then sent to treatment systems prior to discharge. At some sites, groundwater from ongoing remediation is mixed with stormwater at the treatment system prior to local discharge.

  • Coal Fines Drying

    Created during the crushing and drying phases of coal mining, coal fines (particles smaller than 6mm) not only present disposal issues, they can pose a health hazard to personnel and a contamination risk to the site. However, if processed correctly, coal fines can be converted into a fuel source making them a valuable commodity. It is estimated that coal fines, once properly processed, could satisfy more than 5% of the U.S. yearly demand for coal. Control costs, raise profits, and protect the environment by consulting Vulcan® Systems about your coal fines project. Our experts are here to help you find the right drying system to meet your needs. We can recover close to 100% of the value of the coal with our Coal Fines Drying System. At Vulcan® Systems, we design, manufacture, and install each system to deliver the highest value and quality, and our service extends well beyond commissioning.

  • Thickening and dewatering of sludges for water and wastewater industry

    Both economic and ecological demands make maximum dewatering of sludge a most crucial step in the process flow, especially for the pulp and paper industry with their large quantities of sludge to handle. A highest possible dry content of dewatered sludge minimizes weight and volume, hence achieving the following objectives: reduction of transport and disposal cost. high heating value for incineration without additional fuel. With the sludge dewatering systems including both AKSE S disc thickener and AKUPRESS BX screw press BELLMER KUFFERATH Machinery offers plant and equipment able to dewater structured sludges to maximum dry contents.

  • Water Monitoring and Flow Measurement Systems for Water Power

    Hydro power contributes to supplying approximately 3,5 per cent of electric energy generated worldwide. Its share in power generation from renewable resources lies at 18 per cent and will continue to grow as resources of fossil fuels are depleted. Hydro electric performance depends essentially on the usable altitude difference between upper and lower reservoir, and hence the resulting water flow. In order to use the “fuel” water in an optimal way, the flow velocity has to be monitored without any interruptions. Ultrasonic flow meters, flow sensors and clamp-on flow meters (OR clamp-on technology) are ideal for accurate flow metering and flow monitoring.

    Water treatment for power plants

    The process of electricity generation from fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas is water-intensive. Between 40-50% of all water abstracted and used in developed countries is used in the generation of electricity. Thus, a reliable, abundant and predictable source of raw water supply to a power plant is a critical factor in site selection. Water supplies are required to provide various process waters for the following essential main purposes such as make-up water, cooling water for steam turbine condensers, and auxiliary plant cooling water.

    The primary application of modern water treatment technology is to maintain the integrity and performance of the power plant. Critical plant applications have water purity or conditioning requirements that must be adhered to for safe, reliable and efficient power generation.

    Experience has shown that integration of water technology treatments with power plant design can be very important in reducing operational problems and component failures 

    At power plant worldwide there are increasing limitations on water availability and environmental restrictions on discharges. This is expected to promote measures for water conservation and to have an increasing influence on water treatment decisions. At power plant, the recycling of internal wastewater streams can extend from the recovery of individual high-quality waste streams, which can be reused either directly or after only limited treatment, through to the development of fully integrated water/wastewater treatment systems for zero liquid discharge. However, the application of reuse schemes requires site-specific assessment, as not all waters may be viable options for recovery.

  • Solutions for the large tank cleaning and degassing

    Rapid turnaround is essential when an oil or fuel storage tank is stripped for repair or scheduled maintenance.  This time-sensitive process can be frustrated by the presence of high vapor levels and unpumpable sludge.  Over the past 30 years, BioSolve Pinkwater has proven to be a worker friendly solution to these challenges.

  • Water removal filtration

    SAF is the key component for a wide range of enhanced nonwoven filter media fabrics that are designed for the removal of water and particulates from aviation fuel, automotive diesel and a wide range of oils. Such fabrics help reduce problems associated with water contamination in such situations. Its versatility gives rise to cost savings over traditional cellulosic-based absorption media, while offering full compliance potential to stringent international filtration standards – particularly in the aviation fuel and hydraulic oil markets. Applications: A significant reason for the majority of oil and fuel system failures is the presence of high water levels in dissolved, dispersed and free water. SAF-based filter media fabrics can remove both dispersed and free water to very low ppm levels at industry leading rates. This leads to reduced fuel and oil degradation and provides the required filter quality for efficient machine operation.

  • Wastewater treatment for the sea- and inland ports/terminals

    Facing the increasing oversea trade, the environmental protection of the oceans is becoming increasingly important. The motto of the International Maritime Organization of the United Nations in London (IMO), “Safe, secure and efficient shipping on clean oceans” confronts the shipping industry and in particular the terminal ports with growing challenges. The stored fuels, raw materials and resources of a country must not pollute the harbor water with their emissions in case of rain. Produced liquid ship waste contains oil emulsion and saline bilge water among others.

    Ambient air quality monitoring solutions for remote sensing of ship emissions

    New regulation forces ships to lower the emissions of SO2. Ships travelling in SECA areas has to either run on low sulphur fuel, or install SO2 scrubbers. To measure the SO2 emissions from a ship is not an easy task. OPSIS provides the Port Authorities with a unique measurement principle where the emissions from the ship is measured remotely. Light is passing the emissions and by analyzing the light, concentrations of SO2 can be measured.

  • Wastewater treatment solutions for anaerobic sludge digestion sector

    Anaerobic digestion is a series of processes in which microorganisms break down biodegradable material in the absence of oxygen, used for industrial or domestic purposes to manage waste and/or to release energy. It is widely used as part of the process to treat wastewater, like Upflow Anaerobic Sludge Blanket (UASB) reactors. As part of an integrated waste management system, anaerobic digestion reduces the emission of landfill gas into the atmosphere. Anaerobic digestion is widely used as a renewable energy source because the process produces a methane and carbon dioxide rich biogas suitable for energy production, helping to replace fossil fuels. The nutrient-rich digestate which is also produced can be used as fertilizer. The digestion process begins with bacterial hydrolysis of the input materials in order to break down insoluble organic polymers such as carbohydrates and make them available for other bacteria. Acidogenic bacteria then convert the sugars and amino acids into carbon dioxide, hydrogen, ammonia, and organic acids. Acetogenic bacteria then convert these resulting organic acids into acetic acid, along with additional ammonia, hydrogen, and carbon dioxide. Finally, methanogens convert these products to methane and carbon dioxide.
