    Reverse Osmosis Water Testing

    Osmosis is the phenomenon of lower dissolved solids in water passing through a semi-permeable membrane into higher dissolved solids water until a near equilibrium is reached. Reverse Osmosis (RO) is a membrane process of purification which removes most of the the total dissolved solids (TDS) in water by reversing the natural process of osmosis. Pressure is applied to a TDS-concentrated solution against a semi-permeable membrane, causing pure water to diffuse through the membrane. RO has become an important process for a wide variety of applications including: medical, laboratory, desalination, industrial wastewater, Deionized (Dl) pretreatment, and drinking water.

    Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP)/Redox

    Oxidation Reduction Potential or Redox is the activity or strength of oxidizers and reducers in relation to their concentration. Oxidizers accept electrons, reducers lose electrons. Examples of oxidizers are: chlorine, hydrogen peroxide, bromine, ozone, and chlorine dioxide. Examples of reducers are sodium sulfite, sodium bisulfate and hydrogen sulfide. Like acidity and alkalinity, the increase of one is at the expense of the other.

    Circuit Board Cleanliness Testing

    Contamination of circuit boards can bring about severe degradation of insulation resistance and dielectric strength. Cleanliness of completed circuit boards is, therefore, of vital interest. For those companies who have established circuit board cleaning procedures, the MIL Spec P-28809 has been used as a guideline for control. Now a simple `on line` test for the relative measurement of ionic contamination has been developed. This fast and economical method for testing circuit board cleanliness uses a Myron L Company Ultrameter II™ 4P or 6P, a suitable container, and a mixture of Dl (deionized) water and alcohol.

    Boiler Water Testing / Cooling Tower Water Testing

    Boilers and cooling towers share two major water related problems: deposits and corrosion. As steam is generated by a boiler or water evaporating from a cooling tower, dissolved minerals are left behind, increasing the concentration of these minerals. Additional minerals are introduced via the water added to makeup the water lost to steam/evaporation. Eventually, the minerals reach a level (or cycle) of concentration that will cause either loss of efficiency due to scale or damage from corrosion. This level can be determined by the Ryznar or Langlier indices and correlated to a conductivity or TDS range. Most people recognize problems associated with corrosion. Effects from scale deposits, however, are equally important. For example, as little as 1/8` of scale can reduce the efficiency of a boiler by 18% or a cooling tower heat exchanger by 40%!

    Water Testing for Textile Manufacturing

    The textile manufacturing industry encompasses many and diverse processes that rely heavily on the use of water, energy, chemicals, and other resources. Wet spinning, sizing, desizing, scouring, bleaching, mercerization, dyeing and printing are just a few. Monitoring and controlling the pH, TDS/Conductivity/Salt Concentration, ORP (REDOX), and Temperature of the aqueous solutions used in these processes conserves costly resources, controls quality, and reduces the amount of pollution that must be treated before discharge of effluent wastes. This can be done manually with handheld instruments or automatically with in-line monitor/controllers.

    Water Testing for Environmental Applications

    Keeping the water in our lakes, rivers, and streams clean requires monitoring of water quality at many points as it gradually makes its way from its source to our oceans. Over the years ever increasing environmental concerns and regulations have heightened the need for increased diligence and tighter restrictions on wastewater quality. Control of water pollution was once concerned mainly with treating wastewater before it was discharged from a manufacturing facility into the nation`s waterways. Today, in many cases, there are restrictions on wastewater that is discharged to city sewer systems or to other publicly owned treatment facilities. Many jurisdictions even restrict or regulate the runoff of stormwater — affecting not only industrial and commercial land, but also residential properties as well.

    Water Testing for Horticulture

    Modern growing practices include scientific evaluations of soil, water, fertilizers, diseases, etc. While some tests are best performed by a laboratory, others can be easily conducted on location, saving time and money. Three tests in particular, EC, pH, and ALKALINITY, can reveal valuable information about water quality, soil salinity, and fertilizer concentration. MyronL Company’s portable AGRI-METERS provide you with a simple, fast, and accurate means of testing these parameters.

    Fountain Solutions

    Accurate fountain (dampening) solution concentration control is essential for consistent, high-quality results in lithography. Low concentration can cause drying on the non-image area of the plate resulting in tinting, scumming, blanket piling, etc. High concentrations, on the other hand, bring about over-emulsification of the ink. This results in weakening of color strength and changes in ink rheology (body and flow properties). Correct concentration will allow the non-image areas of the plate to be appropriately wetted.

    Water Testing for Automatic Rinse Tank Controls

    Proper rinsing is one of the most important steps in quality manufacturing or metal finishing. Plenty of low cost, good quality water for rinsing has been available in the past, so rinse water conservation has been largely ignored. Today, this is no longer true. Tap water costs have increased dramatically. Various new regulations are now in effect which limit the allowable volume of wastewater. Others require wastewater treatment. Still other laws tax the amount of water going down the sewer. These factors have all encouraged many manufacturers and platers to invest in automatic rinse tank control systems. Many platers using automatic control systems for the first time are pleased to discover a reduction in water usage of up to 80%.

    Waste Sorting - Bulky Waste Sorting

    TOMRA can help you sort the value out of Bulky waste. Bulky waste can contain a high number of valuable materials but this is not easily accessible within regular waste streams due to its bulkiness. This therefore means that in order to streamline the separation process, the initial treatment step has to involve shredding the input material. In order to prepare sortable fractions, sizing of fractions by screening and the separation of light by heavy compartments is inevitable.

    Waste Sorting - Refuse Derived Fuel

    One way in which values within waste can be utilized is by using it as fuel. RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel) is a term that applies to materials with a high calorific value (typically around 18 Megajoule per kilogramm) that are removed from waste streams. Beneficiaries of this material cement kilns to power plants. TOMRA Sorting technology has long been utilized in many plants across Europe to produce an RDF material from different waste streams according to the specific needs of the end users. The main purpose of this area of work is to ensure that the RDF has very low chlorine content, typically below 0.7% in weight. TOMRA Sortingis able to achieve this by either selecting the ‘good’ material (‘positive sorting’) or by ejecting the ‘bad’ material from the stream, such as small PVC parts (‘negative sorting’).

    Waste Sorting - CRT Glass Sorting

    End of life TV sets and computer monitors require to be recycled to maximise the level of material recovery, and to meet the requirements of the EU WEEE Directive. CRT glass is the largest item by weight. However, because of the 2 different types of glass used in CRT manufacture, the glass fractions have to be sorted to achieve a separation of the 2 type of glass, i.e. panel glass sorted from funnel glass. X-TRACT separator is able to sort the panel glass from the funnel glass. It does it by comparing their different atomic densities, and analysing the data from the X-Rays using a bi-chromatic sensor system. X-TRACT is the first industrial application for any dry mechanical density sorting.

    Metal Sorting - Non Ferrous Metals Sorting

    Modern sensor-based sorting systems are superior to traditional manual or sink-float processes for reasons including that they achieve material purities of up to 99.9% in refining the sorted fractions. TOMRA Sorting’s efficient sorting and recycling technology provides benefits for shredder machinery and heavy media operators, plus aluminum resmelters. Shredder operators can create individual fractions out of mixed product which yield much higher market values. Heavy media operators can produce and sell pure final products themselves, meaning their investment in technology is recouped quickly. After wet processing, the aluminum product still contains impurities and its concentration can be improved further using TITECH technology and sold for a considerably higher profit. For smelters, the TITECH x-tract [XRT] removes impurities in the secondary resource to such a high degree of precision that less primary resource is needed to obtain useful aluminum.

    Packaging Sorting

    Packaging waste is mostly made up of different polymers, beverage cartons, paper and glass. Depending on the country in question, different collection systems apply and the material will invariably arrive in different conditions to the MRF’s (Materials Recovery Facility). However, this does not present us with a problem. At TOMRA Sorting, regardless of the collection system operated, we are able to optimally sort the valuable fractions with high efficiency and purity. We currently operate sorting units at packaging MRF’s in many countries including Belgium, Canada, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Spain, UK and USA.

    Metal Sorting - Wire Recovery

    Cable materials were often lost in the treatment and sorting processes available till now, which meant a financial loss due to the high proportion of copper they contain. New sorting technologies such as the FINDER are now capable of detecting these cables. Recently it has become possible to separate metals and copper cables. Previously, cable materials were often lost in the treatment and sorting process. This meant a financial loss due to the high proportion of copper they contain. New sorting technologies such as the FINDER and the FINDER [poly] are now capable of detecting these cables, transferring them to a metal product and then finally sorting them in a further step into a cable fraction of outstanding purity.
