The manufacture of fiber optics involves the integration of various metal compounds to assist with the refraction of light within the fiber. Production of fiber optics create gaseous and sub-micron particulate emissions that are extremely valuable to recapture. A major fiber optic manufacturer has purchased multiple scrubber systems from the Clean Air Group, LLC to not only meet air emission standards but to capture this valuable product. Not only has the Clean Air Group, LLC APC system reduced the customer’s...
Every year emissions standards become more stringent. More stringent standards often require elevated exhaust temperatures. Thermal Structures products have been developed specifically to deal with these increased temperatures. By isolating and managing elevated exhaust temperatures, Thermal Structures enables operators to meet more stringent emissions standards without risking damage to sensitive components. Our products help to make environmental resposibility an easy choice.
Implementation of the MVR technology solved the tough challenge of high salt content wastewater treatment, water cycle utilization rate of more than 90%; Using photoelectric catalysis for waste gas treatment; Comprehensive recycling and utilization of waste residue, the realization of "three wastes" emissions standards.
Traffic means mobility and air emissions. Thanks to economical advantages, diesel engine becomes more and more popular, but particle emission is strictly restricted by regulations. Determining the weight of particulate matter (PM) is a key task in the automotive industry and one which is likely to become even more important as emissions standards become stricter. To allow fast and easy measurement of particulate matter at any time, METTLER TOLEDO has developed new filter weighing solutions.
The industrial chimney's emissions of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are becoming issues of global importance and to have an accurate knowledge about how to test VOC turns into a strategic issue. VOC emissions are quantified and monitored according to standard EN 12619, using FID analyser which uses hydrogen and other reference gases in pressurized cylinder. Operators must then approach the sampling point, often placed several meters from the ground, climbing chimneys of industrial settlements with...
The noise from vehicles such as cars, buses and trucks is wide spread with many people being affected by these noise sources in their daily lives. All modern vehicles will be designed to meet strict safety and emissions standards as well as noise output levels. All vehicles sold in the EU must comply with a range of noise directives to ensure that they meet these specified noise levels when they are sold and many countries enforce regular checks over the life of the vehicle. Motor Sport noise is a often a source...
Given the difficulties in achieving results by increasing revenues, companies are turning more and more to cutting costs. Reducing energy consumption has become the target for many companies. In sectors as the cement, particleboard manufacturing, inceneration,among others, energy is demanded mostly in the form of heat. Most companies are retrofitting their boilers and thermal oil heaters to run with biomass, instead of oil or coal, to reduce costs and become more eco-friendly. Still too, much of the generated...
Petrochemicals, also called petroleum distillates, are chemical products derived from petroleum. Petrochemicals are used to produce industrial chemicals, plastics products, synthetic rubber, dyes, synthetic detergents, polyurethanes, synthetic fibers, ammonia, and methanol. Chemical handling and emissions abatement are critical processes with stringent environmental standards.
The use of lithium carbonate for the treatment of bipolar disorders and depression is well established. However, for the treatment to be effective, it must be managed closely, to ensure the dose is maintained within the normal therapeutic range.
Sodium chloride is an essential ingredient of all processed foods;it is needed to enhance flavour and increase shelf life. In many processed foods, additional sodium is added as a flavour enhancer; potassium and calcium are also naturally present but not normally used as processing additives.
This method reduces or removes potential interference from sodium, potassium and phosphates normally present in serum and urine by diluting the samples with a diluent containing ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA). There was no effect from the presence of dissolved proteins on the calcium signal; the protein remains in solution when the serum is diluted with ≤0.15M EDTA. Prepared diluted samples contained 0.1-0.3mEq/l of calcium in urine and 1-3mM/l in serum, with an accuracy of ± 0.1mEq/l .
VIM Technologies, Inc. has been working with petrochemical and refining customers since 1995. We have continued to experience market share in this industry over the years and are working together with key industry leaders.
The effect of potential interference from other constituents of sea water was studied, including sodium, chloride and potassium. It was found that pre-concentration of the sea water was not necessary prior to analysis. A filtration of the sample was only necessary if sample contained suspended material.
Several different techniques can be used for sample digestion and extraction of sodium and/or potassium: oven ashing, perchloric acid ashing, extraction by boiling and acidification with HNO3 as well as extraction by homogenisation in 2% trichloroacetic acid (TCA).
Protea is the most experienced company in the UK in using FTIR gas analyser to measure emissions. Through running a UKAS-accredited test house and being a manufacturer of gas analysers, we have been involved in FTIR as a supplier and end-user for 10 years.
This procedure uses a TCA (trichloroacetic acid) extraction of the tissue to release all of the calcium. It was found that there was no significant interference from sodium, potassium or phosphate present in a sample at normal physiological levels. Calcium concentration in the range of 0.5 – 3.0 μg Ca / 100mg sample is readily determined.
