Urban Hydrology deals with the specific aspects of the hydrological cycle in urban and industrial settings. This includes all natural water flows as well as the consideration of precipitation, storm water, groundwater, rivers, and lakes, but also the infrastructure and systems for water supply and sanitation in a city.
Determining pollutants in environmental and food matrices requires efficient sample preparation and analytics. BUCHI provide a wide selection of solutions for reliable, flexible and safe sample processing procedures in the laboratory work flow for environmental analysis.
To produce efficiently several feed formulations starting from continuously changing raw materials and premixes, require flexible and accurate analytical and formulation technologies. BUCHI offers dedicated solutions for the entire value chain: from R&D and QC Laboratories to the production lines.
Our thermal flow meters are widely used in flotation cells in mining. Our multivariable mass vortex flow meters are used in the oil and gas industry both at the wellhead and in the refinery. Thermal mass flow meters also have a place in the power generation industry where they are used to measure and control fuel-to-fuel air ratios.
Mercury and its compounds are highly toxic substances fo r humans. It occurs naturally and exists in various forms: elemental (or metallic); inorganic (e.g. mercuric chloride); and organic (e.g., methyl- and ethylmercury). These forms all have different toxicities and implications for health. Among naturally occurring mercury compounds, methylme rcury exerts a significant influence (neurotoxic action) on human health.
Four dewatering, three thickening, four drying, and multiple screening technologies for industrial and municipal wastewater, biomass and organic waste. Process expertise for sustainable solutions. Challenging municipal budgets. Water shortages. A need for renewable energy. Today, there’s simply no room for waste. Getting the most efficient separation is essential, not just to profitability, but also to ensuring sustainable growth.
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.
Quantitative determination of the total mercury content in filtrates of wash-off samples from the surfaces of walls, floors, equipment, and other facilities of m anufacturing areas is an effective method for the occupational safety monitoring.
We have developed many flow meters and controllers to measure the emissions from landfills and other green house gas producers, in addition to being a long standing leader in the testing of emissions for large engines. Water treatment is also an important driver for the company as we continue to develop innovative solutions for waste water treatment.
Various pollutants form in the cement manufacturing process, especially when alternative fuels and waste-derived fuels are used. Typically a cement kiln using these fuels is a required to monitor hydrogen chloride (HCl). Gasmet CEM II is EN 15267-3 approved for HCl measurement in 0 … 15 mg/Nm3 range.High process temperatures result in generation of more nitrogen oxides (NOx) than in typical municipal waste incineration.
The environmental challenges require internationally accepted standards, in which limits and test methods are defined. Metrohm instruments and applications comply with a lot of international environmental standards. Substances introduced into the environment are distributed among the environmental compartments water, soil (sediment), and air, as well as among the organisms living in them (biosphere). Only if we know the type and quantity of these contaminants can we protect the environment and its inhabitants.

Machine condition monitoring based on oil analysis has become an important, if not mandatory, maintenance practice by the transportation industry. An effective oil analysis program will keep important transportation industry assets such as engines in gearboxes in trains, buses and any other oil-wetted machinery in operation by reducing unexpected failures and costly unscheduled downtime.
Packaging is under intense scrutiny by both regulators and buyers. Questions tend to focus on recycling, recycled content and overall ecologically conscious designs. Some materials have a positive public image and others, like plastics, have a negative one. But the materials used in packaging are not the only important factors that determine sustainability.
