    Oil Mist Separators for Shipbuilding

    A  Contec oil mist separator (COMS), type 9.200/762, with special frame construction for the lubrication system of the energy supply is being used on the latest cruise ship of the Celebrity Cruises shipping line. The energy requirements of the cruise ship - built by Meyer Werft Papenburg - is covered by four MAN Diesel & Turbo SE, type 14V48/60CR, diesel engines. The Contec oil mist separator, type 9.200/762, with upstream demister and M6 filter cartridge ensures the reduction of particle contamination. Throughput: 1,200 Nm³/h @ 50 Hz.

  • Airport Environmental Monitoring

    Water pollution from airport run-off is increasingly coming under public and government scrutiny. As environmental regulations tighten, the ability to monitor for aviation fuel contamination from runway run-off has become essential.

    Monitoring sites at airports can be extremely challenging often with no power or telephone lines available and with limited access for maintenance. Chelsea’s robust UviLux Hydrocarbon Sensor with its low power consumption and high accuracy is ideally suited for this application. Installed at various locations around the airport, deployed with it’s own integrated anti-biofouling system, utilising the GSM network, the monitoring sites send data to a secure ftp site, where any internet enabled device can access the data. In this way the systems act as any early warning system allowing any hydrocarbon discharge to be detected in real-time.

    Optional environmental monitoring features include remote control to allow the user to turn equipment on and off, change the sample rate and detection range. There is also a facility to allow SMS text and email alarm notifications triggered by user-defined set-points together with customised web pages, data displays and automated data downloads via an ftp server.

    Airport runoff can contain high concentrations of various pollutants, in particular polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), the environmental levels of which have to be monitored. An understanding of the magnitude of contamination due to airport runoff water is important for the effective management of airport infrastructure. Chelsea’s robust UviLux Hydrocarbon Sensor with its low power consumption and high accuracy is ideally suited to the airport environment.

    Wastewater technology for the airports

    Airport operations lead to many different types of wastewater for example through general airport, hangar and logistics operations as well as refuelling and cleaning of the aircrafts. The effluent from the runways is contaminated with oils, lubricants, detergents and other chemicals.

  • Distributed Temperature Sensing Technology for Stream Monitoring

    Temperature is an important factor in streams ecosystems. Heat tracers have been used to characterize contaminant transport, infiltration rates and energy exchange with groundwater, the atmosphere and radiation. The dynamics of these complicated water bodies is also affected by seasonal and diurnal patterns making characterization particularly challenging. Utilizing temperature measurements that capture spatial and temporal variations at stream ecosystem interfaces provides a mechanism for detailed characterization.

  • Water treatment research for mining industry

    Securing a reliable supply of water for extraction, handling and transportation is vitally important to mining companies looking to expand their operations. These companies will go to great lengths to meet this need, running pipelines hundreds of miles long from desalination plants on the coast and treating wastewater that is conventional held in tailings ponds. Wastewater treatment technologies can recover saleable metal that might otherwise be lost and prevent environmental contamination from highly acidic effluent streams. Developing the infrastructure and technologies to meet these challenges in the mining industry is driving a market worth $11.9 billon.

  • Dustless Lead Paint Removal & Nuclear Decon Tools for Concrete Scabbling

    When concrete is contaminated with PCBs, radiation or other hazards, scabbling is often the only means of remediation. By removing a thin outer layer from a concrete surface, our shrouded power tools can make a structure safer for occupancy or demolition. Our powerful VAC-PAC® HEPA vacuum captures all dust, debris, and air-borne contaminants for easy transportation and disposal in standard 55-gallon (200L) drums. Whether you’re applying a new coating system or  a concrete overlay, a Concrete Surface Profile number (CSP 1-9) is often specified according to ICRI’s Technical Guideline No 310.2R. The examples below illustrate how Pentek tools can achieve your requirements:
