    Air pollution control for the energy recovery industry

    Rising fuel and electric costs, along with global warming concerns have changed the way industrial facilities regard energy consumption. Process equipment and air pollution control systems installed several years ago may not reflect the new energy conscious designs available today. We recommend analyzing these systems periodically to determine energy reduction opportunities. Recovering waste heat is one of the easiest and most utilized means of reducing energy demands at industrial facilities.

  • Noise and vibration pollution control for mining industry

    In a process unique to the mining industry, mineral ore must be extracted and conveyed to a means of transportation in a challenging environment. This involves the use of high-power fixed and mobile equipment with complex kinematics. The entire process is carried out in cyclic and variable operating conditions with significant safety and accessibility constraints. Mining operations are also a source of noise and vibration pollution both for site workers and people in the surrounding area.

    Iron and Steel

    SoniCool™ Evaporative Gas Cooling & Conditioning uses a finely atomized water spray to cool EAF, BOF off-gases from over 2,400°F (1,315°C) to as low as 240°F (115°C), protecting ductwork and downstream air pollution control equipment from high temperature and sparks, while providing rapid cooling for dioxin and furan control. By optimizing humidity levels, SoniCool™ helps electrostatic precipitators. The water spray completely evaporates while cooling gases. There is no free water and no troublesome deposits in ducts, towers or hoppers. Turbotak rugged nozzles are made to the exact requirement, and ideally suited to the harsh conditions in the steel manufacturing process while still producing ultra-fine sprays, with precise control of dropsize and spray coverage.

Our engineered oxidation systems provide reliable performance with minimal maintenance requirements. Externally accessible valve bearings and other critical components are kept out of the corrosive moisture-laden streams extending the life of the equipment and facilitate maintenance intervals. Our simple oxidizer designs control your emissions with minimal facility intervention and allow us to provide you with reliable and dependable equipment.

    Gas monitoring instruments and systems for stack testing according to EPA test method 320

    The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has two stack testing methods for FTIR gas analyzers. Method 320 is an FTIR method for measuring wide range of organic and inorganic pollutants. Method 321 is a specific version for measuring hydrogen chloride HCl at cement kilns producing Portland cement. These methods define a quality assurance and control processes for verifying the accuracy of the results. The requirements for analytical equipment and software are defined on 40 CFR Part 60 Appendix B Performance Specification 15. Gasmet™ Gas Analyzers and Calcmet™ software have been designed to take the requirements of the performance specification into account.

  • Agricultural, Storm and Highway Runoff

    The ability to collect useful data about sediment transport and other pollutants closely coupled to SSC (such as nutrients, e-coli, phosphates and nitrates) is dependent on the timing and frequency of manual grab samples during run-off events. Most sediment and pollutant is transported during a small number of storm events which are infrequent and unpredictable. When they do occur, trained personnel or the proper equipment may not be available to collect grab samples. An automated pump sampler can eliminate the need to sample manually, but for the expense of a rechargeable power system, the autosampler, and possibly a datalogger and a typical turbidity probe, you’re no better off. With an automated pump sampler driven by the DTS-12 digital turbidity sensor and controlled by the Axiom H2 datalogger, you obtain a better understanding of the water’s quality, while taking a minimum number of samples, reducing site visits and saving lab analysis costs.

  • Airport Environmental Monitoring

    Water pollution from airport run-off is increasingly coming under public and government scrutiny. As environmental regulations tighten, the ability to monitor for aviation fuel contamination from runway run-off has become essential.

    Monitoring sites at airports can be extremely challenging often with no power or telephone lines available and with limited access for maintenance. Chelsea’s robust UviLux Hydrocarbon Sensor with its low power consumption and high accuracy is ideally suited for this application. Installed at various locations around the airport, deployed with it’s own integrated anti-biofouling system, utilising the GSM network, the monitoring sites send data to a secure ftp site, where any internet enabled device can access the data. In this way the systems act as any early warning system allowing any hydrocarbon discharge to be detected in real-time.

    Optional environmental monitoring features include remote control to allow the user to turn equipment on and off, change the sample rate and detection range. There is also a facility to allow SMS text and email alarm notifications triggered by user-defined set-points together with customised web pages, data displays and automated data downloads via an ftp server.

    Airport runoff can contain high concentrations of various pollutants, in particular polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), the environmental levels of which have to be monitored. An understanding of the magnitude of contamination due to airport runoff water is important for the effective management of airport infrastructure. Chelsea’s robust UviLux Hydrocarbon Sensor with its low power consumption and high accuracy is ideally suited to the airport environment.

  • Environmental Monitoring

    Environmental monitoring is becoming more important every day in local, national and international policies, showing the environmental awareness demanded by society.

    This fact gives rise to an increase in the amount of legislation that obliges companies to law enforcement. Thus, the necessity of making more pollutants controls means high analysis expenses to the companies, which need to subcontract this service.

    Although applications in this area advance, there is still a clear demand to get new portable and versatile analysis systems for many different application fields such as pollution in environmental or waste waters, monitoring nutrients in agricultural or horticultural water as well as general process control in chemistry industry. Because of the number of enviromental analysis required, there is a need for screening and monitoring measurements of these compounds at contaminated areas.

    Traditional monitoring techniques are typically based on laboratory analysis of field-collected samples that require considerable effort and expense, and the sample may change before analysis. Moreover, the equipment currently available is too large and expensive and it cannot be made portable.Alternatively, microfluidic and electrochemical sensor technologies can contribute to the development of new portable monitoring systems, complementing standard analytical methods for different environmental monitoring applications.In this way, the decentralization and integration of all those typical analyses is the paramount importance in order to reduce cost, simplify the analytical process and make more accessible these technologies to end-users. The development of portable, robust, and accurate Lab-on-a-Chip systems to monitor priority compounds such as contaminants, explosives, chemical warfare agents, inorganic and organic ions is a demand of modern society. Portability allows analyses to be carried out outside of the laboratory, minimizing the risk of contaminating the sample and leading to a faster response time at a lower cost.

    Thus, MicruX solutions and technologies open the gate to develop portable and esay-handly Lab-on-a-Chip devices in order to improve pollutants in-situ analysis in a very economic and efficient way.
