environmental laboratory Applications in Africa

  • Laboratory equipments for core analysis

    Until recently, a high level of expertise and knowledge of the principles and practice of NMR has been needed to perform NMR core analysis. Consequently, NMR core analysis has been confined to a relatively small group of Special Core Analysis Laboratories. Now, a partnership between Oxford Instruments and Green Imaging Technologies brings new hardware and software, with improved performance, to enable any core analysis laboratory to generate the petrophysics values that the industry needs without the requirement that every dataset be analysed by an NMR expert.

  • Laboratory equipments for capillary pressure

    Capillary pressure is a critical parameter for the oil exploration and production industry, and is a common measurement performed in core analysis laboratories. However, traditional techniques such as porous plate, centrifugation and mercury injection are laborious, time consuming and expensive.

  • Laboratory equipments for fluid typing

    GeoSpec2 instruments fitted with Pulsed Field Gradients (pfg) are able to carry out measurements dependent on the diffusion, flow, or distribution of the fluids within the core sample. One application is for fluid typing. It is possible that different fluids, such as heavy oils and partially bound water, may exhibit similar T2 values, which makes it difficult to identify which fluid is which using a standard T2 distribution. However, even if they have similar T2 values they are unlikely also to have similar diffusion characteristics, so a measurement that collects both T2 and diffusion data should in principle be able to separate the fluid types. GIT Systems software, together with a pfg accessory on a GeoSpec2 NMR instrument, enables such measurements to be done. The result is a two-dimensional data map illustrating the relative proportions of the different fluid types in the sample.

    Laboratory instruments solutions for environmental industry

    The environmental challenges require internationally accepted standards, in which limits and test methods are defined. Metrohm instruments and applications comply with a lot of international environmental standards. Substances introduced into the environment are distributed among the environmental compartments water, soil (sediment), and air, as well as among the organisms living in them (biosphere). Only if we know the type and quantity of these contaminants can we protect the environment and its inhabitants.

  • Laboratory equipments for pore size distribution

    NMR can determine porosity and pore size distributions easily and quickly. Essentially, NMR signals are generated from liquids (oil or brine) when the sample is placed in a magnetic field and then excited with a brief pulse of radio frequency (RF) energy. Immediately after the pulse, an NMR signal appears and then dies away with a characteristic relaxation time or decay rate, known at T2. The amplitude of the signal immediately following the pulse is an indication of total fluid present, while theT2 of the signal gives valuable information about the physical environment of the fluid (ie. size of pore where the fluid is located).

  • Laboratory equipments for calcium fluoride in fluorspar

    Measuring Fluorine Content in Mineral Powders and Ores using the MQC Benchtop NMR Analyser. Fluorine-containing minerals such as fluorspar (fluorite) and cryolite are natural sources of fluorine that are widely used in the chemical industry (manufacturing of hydrofluoric acid and fluoropolymers for example), metallurgy (steel and alumina processing), the pharmaceutical industry and others. The fluorine content often has a significant effect on the processing of such mineral powders. Therefore, it is essential to know the fluorine concentration in order to ensure optimal processing and monitor/control emissions of toxic fluorine gases, for example in the Hall–Héroult process used to produce aluminium.

  • Laboratory equipments for pore throat distribution & wettability

    Having obtained a Pc curve, pore throat distributions can now be calculated using the Washburn equations. The imbibition and secondary drainage curves generated by the NMR Pc measurement also allow USBM wettability to be predicted. Both of these calculations are integrated into the software, and follow as a natural consequence of the NMR Pc data. A further added advantage is that the NMR measurement is non-destructive and can use reservoir fluids and reservoir wettability.

  • Laboratory equipments for fat oil & grease FOG in waste water

    Measurement of Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) in waste water is a crucial parameter in water quality control and environmental monitoring performed by water suppliers’ laboratories and environmental authorities; the contamination builds up in the sewerage system and will eventually lead to blockages. Typically the waste water is analysed by first passing a large volume through a filter then selectively determining the grease build-up on the dried filter by an analytical method.

  • LIMS Solutions for the Chemical, Petro-chemical & Oil Industries

    It is vitally important for today’s Petro-Chemical and Oil manufacturing industries to control the cost efficiency of their operations for investor interests and environmental impact equally.  Their laboratories are central to controlling production and most importantly need to provide accurate, transparent and traceable data. All production processes and product quality must adhere to stringent manufacturing regulations; therefore it has become more and more apparent that LIMS are the only way of controlling the manufacturing of Oils and Petro-Chemicals.

  • Radionuclide Monitoring for Nuclear Power Plants

    The continuing establishment of nuclear power stations around the world pose unique environmental challenges for their operators. Ecotech provides air samplers to nuclear power plants for sampling of radionuclides. A nuclear power plant`s radionuclide monitoring network enables continuous sampling of airborne particles onto sample filters contained within High Volume Air Samplers. These filters are then analysed in a laboratory in order to screen for any radiation releases. The challenge has always been to obtain a sufficiently large volume through the filter in order to exceed the laboratory methods minimum detection limits. Ecotech`s MegaVol Sampler, samples at a flow rate of between 120-150 m3/hr providing a high flow rate in order to collect a sufficient sample mass for laboratory analysis. The MegaVol will maintain volumetric flow rate at a preset volume until the filter is either changed or overloaded. The MegaVol can be equipped with a 3G modem in order to remotely monitor flow rate and other diagnostic parameters such as temperature, pressure and wind speed and direction.
