  • New ISFET pH meter PCE-ISFET

    The new PCE-ISFET pH meter from PCE Instruments has been designed for food applications. The glass free electrode makes it particularly safe to use in food production as no glass splinters can get into the food if the electrode breaks. Unlike glass pH electrodes, ISFET pH sensors are highly resilient and do not require wet storage. They give reliable results under tough conditions. The PCE-ISFET ...

  • Validation of Salt Water Disposal Well Treatment Plants with Handheld Oil in Water Sample Analyzer

    Salt Water Disposal (SWD) well operators often dispose a substantial volume of oil inadvertently when injecting salt water, thereby losing the opportunity to sell the oil on the market and potentially reducing the ability to inject water in the well. Injection facilities are typically operated with minimal instrumentation or system optimization, which means the operators don't know how much, or ...

  • What is resiliency in engineering?

    Resilient are the roads on which you drive, the bridges that you cross, and the buildings that stand tall year after year.  Of course, these components of our day-to-day need maintenance just like anything else but chances are, they were designed and constructed with the tools of their time to promote the highest level of foreseeable longevity. Designing for resiliency is critical: ...

  • What is reverberation time and how it is calculated?

    What is the reverberation time of a room? Reverberation time is the time required for the sound to “fade away” or decay in a closed space. Sound in a room will repeatedly bounce off surfaces such as the floor, walls, ceiling, windows or tables. When these reflections mix, a phenomeon known as reverberation is created. Reverberation reduces when the reflections hit ...

  • Assessing the impact of volcanic eruptions on climate extremes using CMIP5 models

    This study analyzes extreme temperature and precipitation responses over the global land to five explosive tropical volcanic eruptions that occurred since the 1880s, using CMIP5 multi-model simulations. Changes in annual extreme indices during post-eruption years are examined using a composite analysis. First, a robust global decrease in extreme temperature is found, which is stronger than the ...

  • Why Invest in Bird Control?

    Birds can be very damaging to your property. In fact, they create millions of dollars in damage every year. When they nest, they can create hazardous conditions that require a substantial amount of cleanup. Bird infestations not only create property damage, but health hazards, liability issues, and can even spread disease. Diseases & Health Issues When it comes to birds ...

  • Downstream sulfuric acid plants benefit from WESP technology

    Industrial-grade sulfuric acid, still the most widely used industrial chemical in the world, continues to be sourced primarily (about 70 percent) as a nondiscretionary byproduct from the roasting, smelting, and refining of nonferrous metals. The rest comes from natural gas processing, electric power generation, and spent acid regeneration. These industries are usually heavy emitters of ...

  • 3 Water Utilities that Lowered their Arsenic Levels with AdEdge

    Finding an appropriate solution to address arsenic in raw water can be challenging for utilities. Studies have shown that when ingested in high concentrations, it is linked to cancer in the skin, lungs, bladder and kidney, and can cause significant skin changes, such as thickening and pigmentation, as well as other health issues. For this reason, the ...

  • 5 Common questions about fluoride in water

    Fluoride in water can be both naturally occurring, or artificially added. In the latter case, this is usually with the objective of aiding oral hygiene in populated areas.
