Machine condition monitoring based on oil analysis has become an important, if not mandatory, maintenance practice by the marine industry. An effective oil analysis program will keep important assets such as engines, gearboxes, hydraulic systems, turbines, compressors, generators and any other oil-wetted machinery in operation by reducing unexpected failures and costly unscheduled down time.
Leachate level control is a primary function in landfills. Although different types of pumps are used, all pumps need to be installed with a totalizing counter mounted at the top of the well head to monitor the pump cycles and to calculate the total volume of leachate removed from the well. Instead of manually monitoring the leachate level and collecting the pump count data, use FlexPower™ Counter Nodes to wirelessly send data from the pumps back to a central control location to save time and eliminate...
Waste-to-energy through incineration of waste is an effective way of producing electricity and heat, at the same time getting rid of the possibly hazardous or unrecyclable waste. The waste can be incinerated at specific WtE plants or at plants with permission for co-incineration of waste at biomass boilers or cement kilns. The waste incineration plants are, however, governed by strict emissions regulations.
Monitoring of emissions from incinerators is a demanding application for Continuous Emission Monitoring Systems. The emissions produced are highly corrosive, some of the gases are soluble and, because the waste being burnt is constantly changing, the resulting stack gas temperature varies widely.
Local authorities incinerate domestic waste and other kinds of waste that typically include plastics, batteries and a diversity of unknown compounds. These may all produce acidic and other toxic emissions. Therefore, efficient flue-gas cleaning systems are needed to prevent their release into the environment.
Optimal performance of petrochemical reforming catalysts depends upon maintaining an optimal moisture / chloride ratio within the reforming reactor. When moisture and chloride are out of balance, catalysts suffer from higher deactivation rates and decreased yields. The cost of inadequately controlling the moisture / chloride ratio can be very high in terms of yield losses, off-spec product, increased catalyst regeneration , early catalyst replacement , processing upsets and / or increased downtime.
Trusted odor detection at parts-per-billion (ppb) levels. If you operate a landfill, you know that it takes constant vigilance to keep your community happy. Monitoring for hydrogen sulfide odor is no exception. When planning your strategy for hydrogen sulfide odor control, be proactive. Be prepared. Trust Jerome to give you the data you need to make the right decisions.
Recovery of recyclables from Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE): Metals and alloys. Plastics (thermoplastics, plexiglass, etc.). Composite materials (circuit boards, etc.). Brominated plastics (BFR). Plastics with cadmium compounds. Material tainted with precious or recoverable metals (e.g. copper, brass, silver, etc.). Sorting of monitor glass (CRT), etc.
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...
Hydrogen chloride (HCl) is a colorless, sometimes slightly yellow, gas. It is an undesired environmental component that may be damaging to workers and the surroundings. Exposure limits have thus been established by industries to make sure that the workers operate in a safe environment. HCl monitoring is especially required for incinerators, coal-fired power plants, aluminum recycling and cement plants. Unisearch offers a reliable and easy-to-use HCl analyzer – the TDLAS-based LasIR system. Studies have...
The challenges facing waste collection services range from incident and complaint management through to the need for data analysis and performance monitoring.
Do you want to assess whether the test period for bio waste containers has been a success and compare the results for different areas? Do you want to visualise specific collection round information based on your SAP R/3 data pool for your reporting? Ortelium is your tool.

Triboelectric dust probes installed in the clean gas duct after bag filters, cartridge filters or centrifugal separators (cyclones) are used to detect faulty, damaged or leaking filters. This early detection of failures minimises product loss, improves environmental conditions and problematic dust emissions.
Benefits include low initial outlay, no consumables and low maintenance requirements.
There are more than 10,000 Dr. Foedisch filter monitor devices installed worldwide in the food processing, cement,...
State-of-the-art systems enabling easy monitoring of CO2 and CH4 gases. Capped Landfill Sites produce a range of gases, mostly methane and carbon dioxide. Legislation requires that these gases are safely removed from beneath the cap to avoid a physical explosion due to the build-up of pressure beneath the cap. Safe disposal usually entails burning such as flare stacks, internal combustion engines or by processing to produce Methane gas fuel. For large sites with access to power distribution infrastructure...
