    Mercury monitoring for isotopic abundance by the ICP-MS

    Studies of real-world ecosystems are very complex. Mercury species inter-conversion as well as mercury deposition and evasion are constantly occurring. One technique to help sort out the processes is to trace reactions using natural Hg isotopes. Either by enriching a system with a particular isotope or determination of isotopic ratios as a technique of source identification, isotopes are a powerful tool for investigation. The Tekran 2600 Total Mercury and Tekran 2700 Methyl Mercury systems are designed to couple to an ICP-MS for mercury quantification by CVAFS and isotopic abundance by the ICP-MS.

    Mercury monitoring for on-site remediation

    Fugitive emissions can be a health concern during removal and disposal of mercury-contaminated material at remediation sites. Thus, remediation projects either indoors or outdoors often require on-site, real-time mercury air monitoring with a Tekran 2537. This assures permitted levels are not exceeded during waste processing and human exposure levels are below government regulated toxicity thresholds. Often multiple sites must be monitored continuously. The Tekran 1115 Multi-Port Sampler is the ideal tool for multiplexing the Tekran 2537 for real-time continuous on-site monitoring of mercury fugitive emissions. Please contact us for more information on mercury remediation monitoring.

    Processing of LCD screens

    The safe extraction of valuable raw materials: robots automatically dismantle monitors containing mercury, while protecting workers’ health at the same time. According to initial projections, around three million LCD screens will be recycled in Germany in 2016. However, their backlighting system often contains mercury, which means they are classified as 'hazardous waste' in accordance with the EWC, and as 'Collection Group 3' in accordance with the Electrical and Electronic Appliance Law. They also contain valuable raw materials, such as metals and plastics, which have to be recovered in such a way, that the environment is not harmed. However, recycling specialists, Erdwich Zerkleinerungssysteme GmbH, have now developed an alternative: The company from Kaufering has developed an automatic processing system that enables mercury and other valuable raw materials to be easily extracted and recycled in an environmentally-friendly way.
