  • The determination of total mercury in fish and agricultural plant materials using thermal decomposition and amalgamation coupled with atomic absorption

    Mercury has long been recognized as a serious global pollutant that has a significant impact upon our ecosystem. Unlike most other pollutants, it is highly mobile, non-biodegradable, and bio-accumulative and as a result has to be closely monitored to ensure its harmful effects on local populations are minimized. Approximately 50 tons of mercury particulates are emitted into the atmosphere every ...

  • Mercury Spill Control Procedures

    Mercury is a dangerous neurotoxin that can have damaging affects on both the central nervous system and renal system of humans. Exposure to mercury can cause serious developmental delays in children, and high level exposure is life threatening. When exposed to air, mercury vaporizes, readily becoming a dangerous aerosol that can be absorbed into the lungs and spread throughout the body. This is ...


  • Mercury spill control procedures - industrial hygiene news

    Mercury is a known neurotoxin that is extremely toxic even in small amounts. It directly affects the central nervous and renal systems, causing developmental delays, motor and brain problems like those associated with autism. Mercury’s hidden danger also lies in when at room temperature, when exposed it vaporizes readily. Once it has become an aerosol, it is absorbed into the lungs and ...


  • Determination of Ultra-Trace Mercury Vapor Levels from Industrial & Military Metal Components

    For many years, scrap metal reclaimers did not separate the materials containing mercury from other metals. Such things as mercury switches, dental amalgam, thermometers, and refining wastes from copper, gold and silver were processed along with the typical industrial metals. The result is that a significant portion of the Ferrous and non-Ferrous metals and alloys used today contain some metallic ...
