    Bromate analysis for the drinking water industry

    Bromate forms during the ozonization of drinking water. Several international standards stipulate detection limits and test methods. Conductivity detection with chemical suppression allows the determination of bromate in the lower μg/L range. In the ng/L range, bromate can be detected by IC/MS coupling or post-column derivatization with potassium iodide and subsequent UV detection.

    pH value and conductivity measurement for power plants

    The pH value and the conductivity have to be determined quasi-continuously at numerous locations in a power plant. The pH value is a key parameter to control the amount of lithium hydroxide that has to be added to the primary circuit of a pressurized water reactor; in water steam circuits, the pH value controls the amount of added amines. The conductivity indicates the amount of dissolved minerals. It is a measure of the water purity and is one of the most important parameters for any chemical control program in a power plant. It is determined at numerous sampling points in the power plant, for example, in the cooling water circuit, in feed and makeup water, at the outlet of the condensate pump, and in the primary circuit of a pressurized water reactor.

    ph determination for soil testing

    Determination of the pH value provides information about the acid or base action of the soil solution. This in turn is enormously important for the nutrient supply and microbial activity of the soil. For example, many metals (trace elements) are considerably more mobile in acidic soils. If the soil pH values are very low, toxic levels can soon be reached and these can damage the roots of plants. On the other hand, excessively high pH values quickly lead to a shortage of trace elements because of immobilization.

    Water analysis for municipal wastewater treatment

    Voltammetric determination of many heavy metals is also possible in municipal or industrial wastewater. On account of the usually high organic load the sample is usually mineralized by means of UV digestion.

    Air quality monitoring

    To estimate the effects of aerosols on health and climate, it is essential to know their chemical composition. Sampling is done using two different types of aerosol collector. The first type are filter collectors that are based on the deposition of suspended particles on surfaces; the second type are powerful aerosol collectors.

    Measurement of sulphur in oil and fuels for oil & gas industry

    There is a continuing and increasing demand for a rapid, simple and cost-effective measurement of sulfur in a wide range of petroleum products including automotive, marine and aviation fuels. Benchtop EDXRF instruments such as the world renown Lab-X3500 and associated X-Supreme8000, can be found in many refinery laboratories/testing houses, with the instrument often operated by production staff on a 24/7 basis, giving accurate results conforming to globally accepted test methods, e.g. ASTM D4294, ISO20847, and the new ISO13032,etc. Both instruments used the analytical technique of Energy-Dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) which is well regarded for its excellent performance, versatility, ease of use, speed, and cost-effectiveness.

    Measurement of hydrogen in fuels for oil & gas industry

    The combustion properties of fuels are key to the efficient and safe operation of engines used in machinery and plant. One important way to measure the combustion properties of a fuel is by its hydrogen content. The measurement of hydrogen content is widely used for the characterisation of aviation fuel but with the increasing costs of all fuels and the greater incentives for fuel adulteration, this test is increasingly being adopted for non-aviation applications. Our benchtop NMR analyser MQC-23 system is widely used for the measurement of hydrogen in fuels in accordance with ASTM D7171-05.

    Environmental testing & compliance screening for energy/environmental sector

    Compliance screening and testing is often carried out during the manufacturing phase of a product, and all the way through its disposal or recycling process. It ensures that products and materials meet specific standards or comply with international and local directives or regulations. These standards and regulations are introduced to ensure the quality and safety of a product, and to minimise or eliminate its negative impact on the environment and people. Examples of products or materials tested are: electrical and electronic equipment (for compliance with the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive), waste oils, soil (soil remediation depending on contents of toxic metals), children’s products (for compliance with Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008), etc.

    Core Analysis for unconventional reservoirs

    Low field Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) is routinely used in core analysis laboratories to examine the T2 relaxation time distribution of fluids in core plugs. These distributions can be interpreted to give information on: pore size distributions; permeability; total and effective porosity; free fluid index and bound water volumes. The partnership between Oxford Instruments and Green Imaging Technologies allows us to integrate hardware and software to enable any core analysis laboratory to generate these petrophysical results without the need for in-depth knowledge of NMR.
