    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.

  • High performance separation system for fuel gas streams

    Fuel Gas Streams are frequently contaminated with liquid aerosols. The liquid exists as a stable and persistent “smoke” in the gas stream. The liquid contaminant can enter the gas stream through any one of a variety of events including – phase separation and condensation, compressor lube-oils from compression, chemical addition to pipelines (including corrosion inhibitors), and entrainment from overheads of contact towers.

    Air pollution control for the ethanol/biodesel industry

    Renewable energy plants are expanding and developing at a significant rate in North America and throughout the world. In the United States, the Clean Air Act for reformulated gasoline (RFG) mandates a 2wt.% oxygen requirement, driving the demand for more production. Ethanol is the most viable additive because it is a clean-burning fuel produced from renewable, domestic biomass sources. However, the production of these fuels can result in unacceptable levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), carbon monoxide (CO), nitrogen oxides (NOx), particulate matter (PM) and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs), all regulated by environmental agencies.

    Plastics & textile shredding

    SSI manufactures a variety of low-speed, high-torque 1, 2 and 4-shaft shredders specially suited for size reduction of plastics and textiles. SSI has many shredders installed in plastic processing applications ahead of granulators to downsize bulky, difficult to manage or compressible materials before additional processing and recycling. We also have many shredders employed converting plastic materials into usable fuel sources for industry.

    Machine condition monitoring for biofuels

    Overview

    The use of ethanol as a gasoline additive has increased dramatically over the past few years and will likely continue to increase. For fuel blenders, this means an added challenge to avoid an incorrect blend that could lead to regulatory fines, loss of customer confidence and damage to equipment. A quick on-site analysis with a portable mid-infrared based analyzer, such as the InfraCal 2 Ethanol Blend Analyzer shown in the photo, can help fuel blenders quickly flag out-of-spec product and ensure the final blend meets specifications.

    Gas Sensing for Gasification

    Syngas (short for synthetic gas) can be burnt and used as a fuel source, the main constituents of syngas are Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Hydrogen (H), which amount for around 85% of Syngas, and it is produced by a process called Gasification. Gasification starts with a base material which can originate from a wide variety of materials for example wood chips and pellets, plastics, municipal solid waste, sewage, waste crops, and fossil fuels such as coal. During Gasification the base material is reacted at high temperature without combustion with controlled amounts of oxygen (O) or steam. The composition of the base material combined with the amount of oxygen and heat used in the process affects the composition of the resultant SynGas, in which the CO can vary between around 20 and 60%. In addition, large amounts of H and CO are also formed. The measurement of CO is therefore an important feature in the production of SynGas.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Cloud software solutions for states/municipalities

    Now more than ever, government is feeling the pressure to become more efficient and effective. State regulatory agencies, city transit authorities, and municipalities with vision are turning to Titan in record numbers to take their fuel and environmental management practices to a whole new level. If you want to make a difference in your organization without spinning up another large, costly project that may take years to implement, try subscribing to the Titan cloud. Our software is already built and currently stores all critical compliance data for 60,000 underground storage tanks (USTs), including tanks in every state in the union and many Canadian provinces. It is far-and-away the industry`s leading compliance solution. In addition to compliance management, our state-of-the-art polling engine (co-developed with Veeder-Root) connects tens of thousands of ATGs to poll for inventory, alarm, and sensor data in mere seconds. This advanced technology can be tailored to meet your current fuel, environmental, and UST-facility management objectives, whatever they may be.
