    Mercury monitoring for mercury flux measurement

    The Tekran 2537 has been used in numerous published studies to measure the deposition or evasion of mercury from natural or contaminated surfaces (i.e. flux measurements). It is anticipated that many mercury flux measurements will be needed in the future to assess the impact of climate change on mercury cycling in the environment. There are two basic ways to do mercury flux measurements. First, the dynamic flux chamber method utilizes a custom enclosure, with controlled air flow, to measure the inlet and outlet...

    Mercury monitoring for measuring mercury content in hair

    Measurement of mercury content in hair is a convenient technique to estimate dietary exposure without having to handle tissues or bodily fluids. As the mercury present in hair is comprised of different mercury species, full speciation of the compounds is needed for complete understanding. Environment Canada published a technique where treating a basic digestion with Cd2+ in the presence of cysteine allowed analysis of inorganic mercury and total mercury using a Tekran 2600 System. Methyl mercury was then calculated...

    Mercury monitoring for aircraft research measurement

    An examination of the literature shows that the Tekran 2537 is the choice for measurements of mercury aboard research aircraft. Several research groups in Europe and North America have used the Tekran 2537 on an aircraft platform for point source plume studies, free troposphere speciation characterization, vertical profiles, characterizing emission source regions and even the stratosphere (http://www.caribic-atmospheric.com/instrum/hg.html). Normally, the Tekran 2537 requires simple modifications for aircraft...

    Continuous emissions monitoring for mercury monitoring

    Waste incinerators, cement plants and power plants need good and reliable measurements of total gaseous mercury. The measurement of total gaseous mercury is a challenge due to chemical reactions and contamination. The installed systems will often require a lot of maintanence still not giving reliable results.

  • Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) Analyzer for Industrial & Municipal Wastewater Industry

    MANTECH’s game-changing water quality analysis technology is revolutionizing wastewater treatment at industrial and municipal facilities worldwide. The PeCOD Analyzer provides accurate chemical oxygen demand (COD) results and biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) estimates within minutes rather than the hours or days required for standard COD and BOD testing — without the use of dichromate, mercury, acids and other harmful chemicals.
