  • Area Monitoring: Diffusion Sampling

    Indoor and outdoor gas hazards that exist in open areas are usually monitored using diffusion-type sensors. A diffusion sensor has no active sample-drawing system; diffusion sensors rely on the ambient air movement and pressure to deliver the sample to the sensing element. Diffusion-type sensors are a reliable and cost-effective way to monitor open area gas hazards. When installing diffusion ...

  • Air Sparging - Technology Overview

    Air sparging involves injecting a gas (usually air/oxygen) under pressure into the saturated zone to volatilize groundwater contaminants and to promote biodegradation in saturated and unsaturated soils by increasing subsurface oxygen concentrations. Vola tilized vapors migrate into the vadose zone where they are extracted via vacuum, generally by a soil vapor extraction system. The term ...

  • Combining surface aeration and diffused aeration improves chemical effluent quality - Case Study

    “The greatest advantage we see with the Aire-O2 Tritons, is the aeration tank does not need to be emptied in order to maintain the equipment; saving us both time and resources and with no interruption to production.” Overview Daurala Organics Limited, a chemical producer in Daurala, India, manages 1600 m3/d flow in their activated sludge process plant. Daurala has ...

  • Reverse flexing as a physical/mechanical treatment to mitigate fouling of fine bubble diffusers

    Achieving energy neutrality has shifted focus towards aeration system optimization, due to the high energy consumption of aeration processes in modern advanced wastewater treatment plants. A study on fine bubble diffuser fouling and mitigation, quantified by dynamic wet pressure (DWP), oxygen transfer efficiency and alpha was carried out in Blue Plains, Washington, DC. Four polyurethane fine ...

  • Second law analysis of compressible flow through a diffuser subjected to constant wall temperature

    This study presents the investigation of entropy generation in compressible turbulent flow of air through a diffuser. Constant temperature boundary condition is applied at the wall. Two-dimensional solution of velocity and temperature fields are obtained using the CFD code FLUENT. Regions of high entropy generation in the diffuser have been predicted. The desired inlet expansion angle ...

  • Operational short-range analytical air pollution modelling

    Operational models that use solutions of the advection-diffusion equation based on more realistic assumptions than that of homogeneous wind and eddy diffusivity coefficients are presented. In particular, these solutions accept that wind and eddy diffusivity profiles are power functions of the height. Moreover, a practical short-range model evaluating ground-level concentrations from elevated ...

  • On efficient numerical solution of one-dimensional convection?diffusion equations in modelling atmospheric processes

    A new approach is proposed to the numerical solution of one-dimensional convection?diffusion equations that arise in modelling atmospheric processes and air pollution modelling. The technique is based on upstream-type difference approximations for first-order derivatives and non-standard difference approximations for second-order derivatives of convection?diffusion equations. This approach leads ...
