    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.

    Shredders and crushers for LCD monitor recycling

    According to initial estimates, in Germany about three million LCD monitors will be recycled in the year 2016. However, they often still have backlighting containing mercury and therefore have to be classified as “hazardous waste” in accordance with the German General Administrative Regulation (AVV) and registered in compliance with the German Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (Elektro G) under category 3. Whereby special conditions must ensure that no risk arises from the mercury for the environment or for humans. However, because of a lack of suitable automated procedures for the recycling of LCD monitors, it was to date only possible to dissemble the appliances laboriously by hand, with the ensuing health dangers for the workers.

    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.

  • 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).
