    Determination of mercury in mercury-containing wastes

    INTRODUCTION

    Mercury is widely used in chemical industry, electronic s, electric engineering, instrument making, medicine, pesticide and explosives production, etc. A number of techniques and equipment are developed for reclaiming mercury-containing waste, such as soil, sludge, stillage botto ms, slime sediments, fluorescent lamps, mercury-containing batteries.

    Mercury monitoring for mercury flux measurement

    The Tekran 2537 has been used in numerous published studies to measure the deposition or evasion of mercury from natural or contaminated surfaces (i.e. flux measurements). It is anticipated that many mercury flux measurements will be needed in the future to assess the impact of climate change on mercury cycling in the environment. There are two basic ways to do mercury flux measurements. First, the dynamic flux chamber method utilizes a custom enclosure, with controlled air flow, to measure the...

    Determination of the mercury concentration in naphtha

    Introduction

    The mercury concentration in crude oil and petroleum products can vary in a wide range of less than 0.1 ppb to dozens ppm. Direct mercury determination in crude oil and petroleum products at the range above 5 ppb is covered by ASTM D7622-10(2015) "Standard test method for total mercury in crude oil using combustion and direct cold vapor atomic absorption method with Zeeman background correction". Mercury determination in naphtha and light petroleum products (condensate,...

    Mercury monitoring for measuring mercury speciation in air

    Tekran offers the only completely integrated, automated system for measuring mercury speciation in air. The Tekran 2537, when coupled to the Model 1130 and Model 1135 provides a continuous record of gaseous elemental mercury, gaseous oxidized mercury and particle-bound mercury. Over the past 12 years, the Tekran 2537-1130-1135 system has been the most significant tool used to advance the understanding of the fate and transport of atmospheric mercury. See the

    Mercury monitoring for measuring mercury content in hair

    Measurement of mercury content in hair is a convenient technique to estimate dietary exposure without having to handle tissues or bodily fluids. As the mercury present in hair is comprised of different mercury species, full speciation of the compounds is needed for complete understanding. Environment Canada published a technique where treating a basic digestion with Cd2+ in the presence of cysteine allowed analysis of inorganic mercury and total mercury using a Tekran 26...

    Monitoring of mercury in ambient air

    Mercury, being widespread in environment, has toxic effect on a human organism even at a low concentration. Therefore, quantitativ e determination of mercury in vari ous environments is one of the most important environmental monitoring problems. The use of a mercury analyzer RA-915M/RA-915+/RA- 915Light with Zeeman background correction provides di rect real-time continuous determination of mercury in air from 0.5 ng/m 3 within the overall possible range of me rcury concentration in ambient air.

    Determination of a total mercury content in urine

    INTRODUCTION

    The main way of mercury removal from human body is it s urinary excretion, which is an important diagnostic medium for screening examination of population, risk group determination, and diagnostics and treatment of mercury poisoning.

    Mercury monitoring for ocean cruises

    Researchers at Battelle Pacific Northwest Laboratory used a Tekran 2600 on a 2009 ship cruise. Due to the low levels of mercury in water, Tekran provided them with a custom 2600 Event Table to pre-concentrate mercury from multiple samples to push the detection limit lower. When planning an ocean bound cruise, instrument dependability is a paramount concern. At sea, there is no possibility to return instrumentation to the manufacturer for quick repair. The Tekran 2600 has a well deserved reputation for dependabil...

    Direct AA Mercury determination in cosmetics

    INTRODUCTION

    High mercury concentration can be found in such cosmetic products as skin lightening soaps and creams, makeup cleansing products, and mascara.

    Mercury in cosmetics exists as inorganic and organic compounds. Inorganic mercury (e.g. ammoniated mercury) is used in skin lightening soaps and creams. Organic mercury compounds, such as thiomersal, are used as cosmetic preservatives in makeup cleansing products and mascara.

    Direct mercury determination in coal

    Introduction

    Mercury is one of the most toxic trace contaminant naturally occurring in the coals. During the coal combustion process at the coal-fired power plants mercury is released into the environment. To manage effectively the stack gas cleaning process, it is necessary to know the mercury content in the coal, and also in stack gas, liquid and solid wastes.

    Mercury determination in natural gas

    Introduction

    The natural gas is a significant source of ingres s of mercury in the environment. The typical mercury concentration in natural gas may vary from 0.01 to 200 μ g/m3 . Mercury, being present in hydrocarbon gas, initiates corrosion of pipelines and catalyst poiso ning during gas transportation and processing, and these effects have serious implications for the gas-processing industry.

    Determination of total mercury content in blood by cvaas

    INTRODUCTION

    Blood is one of the most complex substances for determination of the Hg content. At the same time, blood is the most important diagnostic medium used for monitoring the effect of Hg vapor on the human organism. In almost all the countries, personnel of mercury-involving production facilities are regularly examined for the Hg content in blood, which should not exceed 20–50 µg/l, whereas in the case of a person unexposed to mercury vapor the blood normally...
