    Contaminated Soils with Diesel Fuel and Heating Oils

    Sitelab's UVF-3100D is used to test soil to help investigate and clean up sites contaminated by above ground or underground storage tanks (USTs). Soils can be analyzed for extended diesel range organics (EDRO) or extractable petroleum hydrocarbons (EPH). Results correlate well to confirmatory lab methods.

  • Coal Fines Drying

    Created during the crushing and drying phases of coal mining, coal fines (particles smaller than 6mm) not only present disposal issues, they can pose a health hazard to personnel and a contamination risk to the site. However, if processed correctly, coal fines can be converted into a fuel source making them a valuable commodity. It is estimated that coal fines, once properly processed, could satisfy more than 5% of the U.S. yearly demand for coal. Control costs, raise profits, and protect the environment by consulting Vulcan® Systems about your coal fines project. Our experts are here to help you find the right drying system to meet your needs. We can recover close to 100% of the value of the coal with our Coal Fines Drying System. At Vulcan® Systems, we design, manufacture, and install each system to deliver the highest value and quality, and our service extends well beyond commissioning.

  • 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.
