    Determination of a total mercury content in urine

    INTRODUCTION

    The main way of mercury removal from human body is it s urinary excretion, which is an important diagnostic medium for screening examination of population, risk group determination, and diagnostics and treatment of mercury poisoning.

  • Gas Detection Solutions for Hydrogen Fluoride (HF) Safety

    Hydrogen Fluoride (HF) is a very useful chemical used in a variety of industries. However, HF is highly toxic with potential fatal consequences with exposure to humans, so facilities that make or use HF should exercise great care. Nevertheless, there is always the risk of leaks from process elements such as valves, pump seals and storage vessels. Tanker loading, transporting and unloading operations also provide opportunity for HF releases. Industrial processes that make or use HF typically have arrays of point sensors distributed throughout the unit. However, these sensors are maintenance intensive and have relatively slow response times. In addition, a point sensor will not detect an HF release unless it is located directly in the area of that release. Electrochemical HF sensors also respond to chlorine, ammonia, and sulfur dioxide, resulting in false alarms.

    On-site disinfection systems for public buildings

    Public institutions are obliged to provide safe water and are liable for harm caused to consumers, for example by legionella. A disinfection system that successfully eliminates germs and bacteria is therefore an extremely sensible preventive measure. Danish Clean Water A/S provides sustainable, efficient and cost-effective solutions for public buildings such as hospitals, nursing homes, schools, day care centers and municipal and state buildings. Fighting legionella, bacteria and germs in the water is crucial for human health - especially in public buildings where many people draw drinking water and shower water from the same water pipes. In hospitals and nursing homes, the risk of developing Legionnaires` disease is particularly high because the patients/residents are often already weakened.

  • Microbial testing in cooling water system industry

    Superior reliability for superior control! Biocide treatments are essential to control microbiological growth in cooling systems. If not properly managed, the warm environments of cooling systems are ideal for the growth of microorganisms. As microorganism communities grow in cooling systems, they can attach to pipe walls and form biofilms. These biofilms pose serious risks, from human health risks like Legionnaire`s disease to reduced operating efficiency and eventually to equipment failure via microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC).

  • Shredders for Electric and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) and Refrigerators

    Electric and electronic waste (WEEE), are coming from technology products such as home appliances (washing machines, vacuum cleaners), computers and tools. An economy based on the consumption such as today, provides a continuous increase of WEEE, and determines an increasing risk of dropping out in the environment or in landfills, with the consequences of pollution of soil, air, water and health human repercussions. These products should be handled properly and used for the differential recovery of the materials they are made of, such as copper, iron, steel, aluminum, glass, silver, thus avoiding a waste of resources that can be reused to build new equipment in addition to the environmental sustainability.
