5 Mistakes companies make when adopting EQMS
When a person has been in industry for a while, they tend to see the same patterns repeat themselves.How businesses deploy Enterprise Quality Management Software (EQMS) is one example; companies tend to experience a common pathway, and take a similar approach. Often, it takes a lot of time and effort to get the budget for an EQMS deployment, and the budget award is greeted with excitement! All too often this initial euphoria is replaced by disillusionment or disappointment over the course of the project. As...
MBBR Wastewater Treatment - 5 Top Advantages
Modular wastewater treatment solutions have become very important to treat waste water. Water scarcity has become an important issue worldwide, requiring strategies for both water conservation and effective water and wastewater treatment. Several technologies have been in practice for generations including the conventional activated sludge process.MBBR wastewater treatmentis a relatively new water treatment process being used for filtering waste water in both industrial and domestic sectors with excellent performan...
A Faster and Better FluidScan with Version 5
Measure water contamination in turbine oils down to 300 ppm The latest version of FluidScan software can detect total water presence as low as 300 ppm in turbine oils. The method provides an alternative to laboratory tests such as Karl Fischer titration when fast, simple, and reagent-free analysis is needed.In addition to measuring water contamination, the FluidScan analyzer provides immediate, reagentless measurement of acid number (AN), base number (BN), oxidation, glycol, and other parameters. Water contaminat...
Patterns of plant species richness along the drawdown zone of the Three Gorges Reservoir 5 years ...
This study was conducted to understand the patterns of plant species richness in the Three Gorges Reservoir after 5 years after 175 m submergence. We hypothesized that hygrophyte and xerophyte species would show different species richness patterns, which was tested by collecting species composition and environmental variable data in 50 m long and 5 m wide transects in the drawdown zone from 145 m to 180 m. Xerophyte species richness (XSR) was highest in the middle of the drawdown zone, whereas hygrophyte species...
5 Essential tips about snowmobile safety
Extreme conditions and fast speeds are what make riding so much fun, but they come with risks. When you ride with your family and friends, you need to be aware of potential risks. A modern snowmobile can weigh over 600 pounds and travel up to 90 mph. Due to poor judgment, excess speed, and alcohol — approximately 200 deaths and 14,000 injuries occur every year. But this does not mean riding is dangerous. You can ensure that you have a safe and enjoyable trip while protecting yourself from the potential...
