Our Sea Clean Industrial Oil Remover was tested at the Fiat Lancia factory in Torino, Italy. Years of oil spillages and leaks had left this site unsafe for workers. Comparing the area prior to and following application, the results are quite astonishing.
Counting the Drops: Leak Detection and Auditing Methods for Property Managers
Leaks are never good, whether it’s a leaky boat or a leaky pipe system. Even advanced water utility systems can experience water loses ranging from 10 – 40%, with these losses being proportional to the population of the urban area serviced by the water distribution system. Large cities like New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles are vulnerable to staggering amounts of water loss in absolute terms. It represents both a significant loss of resources and loss of revenues with matching increases in operational...
Nanobite remediates boyne river oil spill - Case study
On the 6 September 2007, an oil spill from a fuel dump leaks into the beautiful Boyne River, County Louth, Ireland. Local wild fowl and their nesting areas are endangered, as is the local water supply. The coastguards deploy conventional booms to contain the spill but decide against the use of conventional chemical detergents because of the obvious damage to flora and fauna. Drogheda Borough Council require a treatment that is 100% environmentally safe. They chooseNanobite Liquid, an inert, non-toxic and...
99% of Oil from Leaking tanks remediated - Case study
Spills and leaks from domestic and commercial oil tanks are a very common occurrence, caused either by the refilling of tanks or as the result of leaks. Very often old metal tanks corrode and start leaking oil onto the ground around the tank. Also the tanks themselves become covered in dried hydrocarbons and become significantly discoloured, even black. Spilled oil can seep into the ground, damaging the concrete or contaminating the soilaround the tank., killing grass and plant life. If this leak is not dealt...
On-site Oil Analysis to extend oil drain intervals
Fleets demonstrate ROI on do it yourself oil analysis “If the oil is good, why would you change it?” Gary Lentsch, CAFM, fleet manager for Eugene Water & Electric Board (EWEB), asked himself. And more importantly, how much was it costing him to change oil when it wasn’t needed? Lentsch began asking himself this after he saw an oil analysis machine at a fleet conference. He had been sending out oil for analysis periodically, but an in-house unit would speed up the process and allow him to...
QuadOa and OGI: how EPA regulations are changing the way we look at gas leaks
Earlier this year, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published Regulation 40 CFR, Part 60, Sub-part OOOOa, commonly known as Quad Oa, and finally brought optical gas imaging (OGI) firmly into the mainstream. This presents a major shift in the way fugitive emissions are regulated, and the technology that can be used. Detecting and acting on gas leaks is naturally a major concern for oil and gas operators, and a challenging problem to address. OGI technology started to play a role about ten years ago, when...
