The reasons for testing water quality in groundwater are numerous. Monitoring water quality and conducting tests is a good way to gather data on aquifer hydraulics. It can also be used to monitor parameters such as rhodamine, which helps to understand movement of underground water. Human activities can have an impact on groundwater quality, and conducting tests in this field can help to track these effects. Leachate from landfill and fertiliser can both find their way into groundwater. It is important to monitor...
Bromate forms during the ozonization of drinking water. Several international standards stipulate detection limits and test methods. Conductivity detection with chemical suppression allows the determination of bromate in the lower μg/L range. In the ng/L range, bromate can be detected by IC/MS coupling or post-column derivatization with potassium iodide and subsequent UV detection.
The quality of water is vital in laboratories. To produce the best quality water for a laboratory, the water should be demineralised, and, in some cases, sterile. Demineralised water is completely free of dissolved minerals. When conducting tests and experiments in a laboratory, the results will be as accurate as possible, as there are no minerals in the water which could alter the outcome of the test.
Accurate fountain (dampening) solution concentration control is essential for consistent, high-quality results in lithography. Low concentration can cause drying on the non-image area of the plate resulting in tinting, scumming, blanket piling, etc. High concentrations, on the other hand, bring about over-emulsification of the ink. This results in weakening of color strength and changes in ink rheology (body and flow properties). Correct concentration will allow the non-image areas of the plate to be appropriately...
Non-polar liquids such as toluene, hexane, dodecane, etc, are important for many novel products like electronic paper, batteries, and fuel cells. Dispersions prepared on their basis depend on ionic composition, which can be characterized with conductivity
STEEL INDUSTRY: Conducted particulate testing and continuous emission monitoring of a rod mill exhaust stack. In addition, testing was performed to determine emissions associated with a slow cooling pen associated with ball mill production.
The Envirotac (Rhino Snot) line of polymers are the number one used soil stabilization chemicals by the Untied States Military. They have tested numerous products and continue to rely on Envirotac to protect our country`s assets. Applications include but are not limited to runways, landing pads, supply roads, base camps, and so much more. In a test conducted by the United States Naval Facilities Engineering Service Center our Envirotac polymer was 97% effective and the second most effective was a well known...
Concurrent with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s final rule establishing regulations to require current good manufacturing practices (cGMPs) for dietary supplements, PTL can offer cGMP services to all supplement manufacturers. PTL has sustained its FDA registration since 1994, which involves rigorous inspections by FDA every 2 years or sooner. According to the final rule, proper controls must be in place for dietary supplements to be produced in a consistent manner for identity, purity, strength, and...
The Situation: California is currently facing one of the most severe droughts in recorded history. In order to mitigate the drought conditions, various water conservation measures have already been implemented, and others are being considered. One method under consideration is using the advanced treatment of produced water to make it available for irrigation. A major challenge to the success of this method is economically treating the produced water to achieve the quality mandated by California’s irrigation...
Over-the-road trucking fleets depend on their vehicles for their business and revenue. Vehicle availability is critical and unexpected breakdowns can be costly – not only due to the cost of the repair but towing charges of a large truck and the lost revenue can add up to an expensive event.
Our labs are USDA recognized and are under government grants to conduct food microbiological research. Approved test methodologies include carefully selected FDA, USDA, BAM, USP and AOAC official methods. For more information about food safety methods, check out these Food Safety Guides. The MiL routinely performs rapid microbial identifications, confirmations, and tracks contaminant sources of all pathogenic, indicator and spoilage organisms using the latest technologies such as GC FAME, Biolog, Ribotyping, and...
Municipal fleets include public works vehicles, public transportation and emergency vehicles. Keeping the vehicles in these fleets up and running is critical to the operations of any city or town. Many locations have their own maintenance garages to service the municipal fleet which can include hundreds or even thousands of vehicles.
The earlier you consider flood resilience in the building design stage, the more streamlined your project phasing will be and the more cost-effective your solutions will be. Aquobex’s team of experts can call on their experience in architecture, construction and engineering to advise your team when planning, designing and specifying best-in-class flood products to ensure aesthetic integration and successful project delivery. The earlier we work together, the better.
Machine condition monitoring using oil analysis is a predictive maintenance solution for industrial environments. An oil analysis program allows for reduction in unexpected failures and costly downtime for manufacturing components such as gears, pumps, compressors, engines, bearings, hydraulic systems, and other machinery.
A non destructive test for concrete plays a central role in determining the quality of cement casting. Bubbles and sediment in the cement weaken the construction considerably. NDT testing equipment is also used in construction to determine the quality of the wired foundations. One of the challenges of construction NDT is the possible difficulty in reaching testing locations. A non destructive test for concrete conducted with a portable digital radiography system provides an excellent inspection tool. Combining...
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...
Polish waterworks and sewage sector has undergone a great transformation since the Polish accession to the European Union. The Institute has supported this industry for many years conducting activities related to the development of new test procedures used in the analysis of natural and effluent waters with high content of dissolved substances.
Since beginning operations in 2002, Raymetrics core clients has been the atmospheric research community. The company has since maintained close ties with academia over the years in order to continue developing high-innovation products suitable for top quality research.
End of life TV sets and computer monitors require to be recycled to maximise the level of material recovery, and to meet the requirements of the EU WEEE Directive.
CRT glass is the largest item by weight. However, because of the 2 different types of glass used in CRT manufacture, the glass fractions have to be sorted to achieve a separation of the 2 type of glass, i.e. panel glass sorted from funnel glass.
X-TRACT separator is able to sort the panel glass from the funnel glass. It does it by comparing their...
