    O2 Monitoring in Air

    Oxygen (O2) is a colorless odorless gas, essential to all life on Earth but damaging in high concentrations. An O2 analyzer should thus be employed for safety management and air pollution prevention purposes. LasIR MP110 is perfect for continuous emission monitoring of O2. It is based on TDLAS technology and can be calibrated as an O2 analyzer, providing accurate and reliable measurements. It quickly responds to changes in compound concentration, thus providing continuous emission monitoring for the specified gas.

  • Water quality monitoring for environmental industry

    Maintaining the quality of natural waters provides numerous economic benefits by preventing severe deterioration of water resources that would require expensive treatment operations to protect public health and the environment. For instance, monitoring nitrates in surface waters can possibly prevent algal blooms from happening by facilitating the necessary steps to stop pollution sources from discharging nitrogen nutrients into the water system.

  • Geosynthetic Lining for Highway and Civil Applications

    GCL can be used in highway and civil applications such as at airport de-icing facilities used to remove ice build up on the surfaces of planes. During the application process, glycol-based de-icing fluids can leak into local stormwater runoff, potentially causing pollution. CETCO GCLs were found compatible with de-icing fluid (glycol diluted 50/50 with water). GCLs can also be used to line roadway drainage swales for containment and prevent excessive percolation, thereby minimizing potential for groundwater contamination. Another example of using GCL in civil and highway applications is using the liner to contain acid rock and prevent runoff from entering the local water supply.

  • Monitoring of VOCs in Porewater

    Monitoring VOCs in porewater in the unsaturated zone is now possible.

    Sorbisense regularly offers new options for using the patented Sorbicell, which is used to monitor surface water, wastewater and groundwater.

    The latest is almost as “ground-breaking” as the SorbiCell itself. Until now it has been difficult, if not impossible, to directly monitor for volatile substances in pore water in the unsaturated zone. But the environmental consultancy firm Ejlskov A/S in Aarhus combined the use of Sorbisense sampling equipment with the proven technology of soil water samplers. With this combination, a practical new method is made available, which allows for monitoring the presence of porewater-dissolved VOCs above the groundwater table. This provides a significantly improved basis to define and determine the leaching risk to the groundwater, and thus allows for better and more cost-efficient decisions to prevent the pollution in reaching the groundwater.

    A simple construction with multiple options

    The application uses SorbiCell VOC combined with suction cells, soil water samplers. When installed correctly, and applied with the correct procedures, the suctions cells extract capillary bound water from the soil matrix. The system demands no other resource than a container that is put under vacuum. The vacuum in the container then ensures a flow through of the Sorbicell over a period of time, fx. 2-3 weeks. The method is highly suitable for monitoring a site over longer periods of time.

  • Painting & Coating

    Paint fumes are Unbreathable. Spray Painting VOCs and Powder Coating dust are both harmful pollutants which are produced during painting operations. The volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted from paint can cause respiratory issues and require proper ventilation to remove harmful gasses from the work area. Powder Coating lines and spray painting produce dangerous fumes and dusts which need to be filtered or exhausted outside your facility. Industrial coatings and chemicals can produce toxic VOCs and foul odors which can effect worker`s health and reduce productivity. Some of the most common coatings are polymers which include polyurethane, epoxy and moisture-cure urethane. Many different industries required the use of glues, adhesives, solvents and different chemical agents in their production process, but are unsure of the best way to handle this nuisance. Exhausting fumes outside may be an option when VOCs are extremely dangerous and odorous but companies must also comply with EPA guidelines which regulate which gases can be emitted. In cold climates and in air-conditioned facilities, capturing, filtering and recirculating fumes can provide huge energy savings preventing costly heat loss and energy intensive air makeup systems. Utilizing activated carbon granules can allow operators to filter VOCs and odors from painting and cutting applications. Different quantities and types of carbon modules are required depending upon the contaminant.
