  • Laser & Plasma Cutting

    Laser & Plasma Cutting fumes are Unbreathable. Using laser or plasma cutting equipment on either metals or plastics introduces several known carcinogens, such as fused silica and ethyl acrylate, into the air. Occupational Health and Safety organizations recommend reducing personal exposure to the lowest level feasible. Hand held plasma cutting provides metalworkers with a quick and fast way to cut large sheets of metal material. However, plasma and oxy cutting generate a large amount of sparks, slag and fume...

  • Soldering Fume Extraction

    Soldering fumes are Unbreathable. Soldering enables the joining of metal parts by melting a filler metal to attach wires and other metallic components. The fumes generated from melting solder especially solder containing Lead or Tin present are dangerous and require local ventilation to remove harmful smoke from the work area. Soldering application need to be properly ventilated to prevent toxic fumes from reaching the worker`s breathing zone. There are a number of different industries such as the electronics...

  • Metal Stabilization

    In-situ geochemical fixation using a chemical reductant such as Remotox (calcium polysulfide) converts the soluble toxic metals into insoluble non-toxic compounds. Remotox has proven to be effective under a wide range of conditions. It is considered more stable and persistent than other reductants in subsurface environments, and is relatively safe to handle in the field and easy to apply.

  • Gas detection for the steel industry

    Regarded by many as providing the backbone to modern society, the steel industry is one which continues to evolve. Whether it is geographic shifts in demand or production, or challenges brought by energy or raw material costs, companies continue to develop their processes and facilities to meet them. Alongside these changes companies have also realised the requirement to minimise downtime due to unplanned maintenance and protect workers from exposure to toxic or flammable gas hazards.

    Direct atomic absorption mercury determination in tissues and biological samples

    INTRODUCTION Mercury and its compounds are highly toxic substances fo r humans. It occurs naturally and exists in various forms: elemental (or metallic); inorganic (e.g. mercuric chloride); and organic (e.g., methyl- and ethylmercury). These forms all have different toxicities and implications for health. Among naturally occurring mercury compounds, methylme rcury exerts a significant influence (neurotoxic action) on human health.

    Determination of zinc in water by fluorimetric method

    In accordance with WHO’s Guidelines for Drinking Water Quality there is no health-based guideline value of zinc in water concentration. Concentration of zinc in tap water can increase as a result of its dissolution from pipes. Also, elevated levels of zinc may be an indicator of increased concentrations of other toxic metals; thereby zinc in water analysis is an essential analytical task. Lumex Instruments provides sensitive and selective fluorimetric method for the measurement of mass concentration of zinc in...

    ph determination for soil testing

    Determination of the pH value provides information about the acid or base action of the soil solution. This in turn is enormously important for the nutrient supply and microbial activity of the soil. For example, many metals (trace elements) are considerably more mobile in acidic soils. If the soil pH values are very low, toxic levels can soon be reached and these can damage the roots of plants. On the other hand, excessively high pH values quickly lead to a shortage of trace elements because of immobilization.

    Wastewater evaporator Solutions for the printing wastewater treatment

    Printing and Photo Processing Wastewater Treatment and Disposal. The printing industry and photographic processing produce a tremendous amount of waste water, from washing prints, cleaning between color changes, cleaning ink shipping containers and cleaning ink delivery systems. The wastewater produced is often contaminated with heavy metals and other highly toxic materials.

  • Integrated Environmental Solutions for mining industry

    Extracting the Most Value with Astute Water Management. The mining industry operates in difficult and isolated terrains where clean water is not commonly accessible. Being a key element in mining operations, a constant water supply for smooth operations is crucial. Mining also produces wastewater from the extraction process that can be high in acidity, corrosive metals and other toxic contaminants that challenges discharge standards.

  • Waste Management Solutions for Mining Wastes

    Mining waste typically arises from the limitation of the installed technologies of an operation, e.g. where fines cannot be tolerated. They are associated with mine workings and often contain valuable and/or hazardous materials. The hazardous content, which are often the valuable fractions within this waste are typically metals. Spread of metal toxicants in association with tailings particles, through a combination of wind dispersion or if washed into the soil or rivers, can have a highly damaging effect on the...

  • Waste recovery for energy & utilities

    In order to stay competitive and to be seen as being environmentally responsible, energy and utility companies are always looking for alternative routes to generate power. One method of doing this is by leveraging waste to energy incineration plants linked to the processing municipal solid waste. During this incineration process, APC residues, which are a mixture of fly ash, organic pollutants (including dioxins and furans), are generated and are classified as hazardous waste and have a detrimental environmental...

  • Cyanide Treatment with Hydrogen Peroxide

    Cyanides are used in a number of chemical synthesis and metallurgical processes (as simple salts or cyanide complexes). As a class, cyanides are highly toxic and must be destroyed or removed from wastewaters prior to discharge. The most common method for treating free or simple cyanide is alkaline chlorination. However, chlorination of cyanide results in highly toxic intermediates (e.g., cyanogen chloride) and, if organic material is present, chlorinated VOC’s. These compounds, together with the residual chlorine,...
