    Waste recovery for nuclear wastes

    Nuclear waste is divided into low, medium, and high‐level waste by the amount of radiological character it contains. Low and Intermediate Level Nuclear waste is the radioactive waste resulting from nuclear facility consumables, clothing, laboratory equipment etc. This waste can adversely affect human health and the environment and therefore must be handled appropriately. Typically, the waste is kept underwater for 3-5 years until the radiation decays to levels that can be shielded by concrete in large storage casks, where it can be held for thousands of years. A challenge for the nuclear industry is the cost associated with conditioning, packaging and storage of these heterogeneous wastes. Therefore, a solution that can decrease the volume of nuclear waste, and reduce the amount of storage required, is considered a commercially advantageous option.

    Waste Compaction for the PET & Plastic Bottles Industry

    PET and other rigid plastics are usually made from either PET, high density polyethylene (HDPE), polypropylene (PP) or polystyrene (PS) – the hard, not expanded type. Recovered items such as bottles, pots and containers can all be baled sold on to recycling companies. If you’re unsure which type of plastic waste your business generates, we can help you identify it and recommend the best solution for your needs.

    HSM provides balers for use with plastics in many different scenarios from small volumes, with the aim of creating a tidy, efficient work area is the main aim through to demanding, high volume situations where a baler which can deal easily with throughputs of many bales per hour is required.

    Our new generation of modern balers have been created to use low levels of energy, generate a minimum level of noise and operate without the need for constant supervision.

  • Water treatment systems for chemical industry

    The effluents that accrue in the cleaning process of silo vehicles and containers for transportation of raw materials for the chemical industry, are highly complex and constantly changing in the composition of wastewater. Flocculation as the prior art of treatment for chemical waste water can not remove many of the completely dissolved invisible substances. Thus, the residual stresses are evident despite high claritv of the `Treated effluent` is often well above the levels witch are applicable for wastewater in domestic environments.

    Contaminated Water Filtration

    Industry standard best practices are designed to ensure that all work done on Asbestos Abatement Projects is done to the highest level of safety and risk management. Containment of the generated waste water fibers and debris is critical to proper compliance and worker safety. If these fibers are not captured and contained, they can be very harmful for the environment, on-site workers and the occupants of neighboring areas. Exactly how you approach your containment and capture solutions will depend on the individual site’s risk assessment report. If you need help identifying solutions to the issues raised in the report, feel free to contact our customer service department and we can review your options together. Water from showers at Asbestos Abatement sites is often contaminated with asbestos fibers from washing protective gear and equipment. This water must be filtered prior to discharge into a drain.

    Roper’s Restaurant, a cowboy themed restaurant in Albuquerque, New Mexico has replaced its water softener with the computerized, electronic, water-conditioner Scalewatcher from Scalewatcher North America. By installing Scalewatcher, the restaurant has avoided paying the $500 quoted for replacement media for its old water softener and also saved hundreds of dollars a year in salt and water thereby providing Roper’s with a short-term payback on the unit. Roper’s Restaurant, part of Outwest Eateries LLC dba, is located in a hard water area. This necessitated Bryce Chant, owner of Roper’s Restaurant using a water softener to prevent scale formation in the kitchen. “When I was given the price to repair our old water softener, I decided to install the Scalewatcher from Advance Plumbing”, said Bryce Chant of Roper’s Restaurant. We have had great success with it. Even though we had a water softener we still had hard water scale and a white ‘film’ in the dishwasher. Now with Scalewatcher that scale and ‘film’ has disappeared.” The average restaurant consumes 5,800 gallons of water daily, with 50% being used in the kitchen. If not properly treated, hard water can drain a restaurant’s bottom line due to the early renewal of capital equipment such as water heaters, boilers, coffee makers, dishwashers, steamers and other water-fed equipment. Hard water contains calcium carbonate that adheres to heating elements and the internal surfaces causing scale buildup that impairs efficiency. The limescale that deposits on the heating element will, if untreated, reduces efficiency, induces corrosion of the element and ultimately lead to appliance failure. In addition in restaurants, hard water also necessitates the use of additional detergents. In fact, for every additional grain of hard water, detergent use increases by between 2% and 4% per 1,000 gallons of water used. Many restaurants, like Roper’s use a water softener to reduce limescale. However, water softeners use copious amounts of both water and salt, which are expensive to buy and salt is also bulky to store. In addition, in many States now, including Southern California, municipalities and water departments are severely limiting, and in some cases prohibiting, the use of salt-regenerating water softeners due to concern regarding the increased levels of salt in ground water. The award-winning Scalewatcher system not only helps restaurants meet these regulations by minimizing salt usage but also saves money on salt purchase and has the additional benefit of removing scale from water-fed equipment. The environmentally friendly Scalewatcher provides a permanent solution to hard water problems without the need of chemicals, salt or maintenance. It works by producing a varying electronically applied force field, induced by a coil wrapped around the outside of the pipework, which keeps the minerals in suspension and thus prevents limescale forming. The water’s increased solubility enables it to dissolve existing scale, which is gradually washed away. “We are saving money each month because we do not have to purchase salt for the water softener and we are not dumping salt filled water down the drain because there is no brine process with Scalewatcher”, said Bryce Chant. “Living in New Mexico with our drought situation, I hated knowing all that water was being wasted. Scalewatcher is a truly ‘green’ technology that we are happy we have implemented”. Roper’s Restaurant has been so impressed with the Scalewatcher technology that the managers have bought units for their homes and have recommended it to family and friends. Scalewatcher models are based on continuous research and over 20 years experience and expertise as market leaders in electronic scale control with countless units sold worldwide. The patented Scalewatcher systems start at $248.00 USD and are capable of treating pipe sizes from one to 120 inches. All Scalewatcher systems come with a full performance guarantee and include free shipping throughout North America.
