  • Japanese Organics Recycling Association Formed

    Another backyard composting adage states that compost should have the feel of a wrung-out sponge — damp but not dripping wet. Actually, a wrung-out sponge may be on the dry side for composting, but the analogy does provide a great image for understanding the reasons for balancing moisture. Like a compost pile (or windrow or material in a vessel), a sponge is a solid mass containing an enormous ...

  • Process analytics in gas-to-liquid (GTL) plants – Case Study

    NG, FT and GTL Natural Gas (NG) is a vital component of the world's supply of energy. It is one of the cleanest, safest, and most useful of all energy sources. NG is colorless, shapeless, and odorless in its pure form. It is combustible, and when burned it emits lower levels of potentially harmful byproducts into the air than other fuels. NG is a mixture of hydrocarbon gases. While it ...

  • Instrumented drop weight impact test set-up design and assessment

    Instrumented impact tests are useful to characterise the dynamic behaviour of materials as they provide continuous load, strain and deflection histories of an impact test. When these tests are used for low strength-to-weight ratio materials like concrete, considerable parasitic effects of inertial loads are manifested in the test records. With proper choice of the test parameters these parasitic ...

  • Analytical Devices for the Measurement of Water Vapor and Hydrocarbon Dew-Point in Natural Gas

    Introduction The determination of water vapor (water dew point) is crucial in the processing, custody transfer and transport of natural gas. High levels of water vapor in a natural gas stream can lead to a number of problems which include the formation of hydrates and the contribution to corrosion of plant and equipment. Furthermore, water vapor present in natural gas streams affects the ...

  • Method X: Determination of metal concentrations in emissions from stationary sources (instrumental analyzer procedure) case study

    Method X is an instrumental analyzer procedure for the determination of multiple metals using x-ray fluorescence as an analytical technique. Method X specifies the criteria for accuracy stability and precision that must be met by an x-ray fluorescence based instrument analyzer. Method X also describes the emission test procedures associated with an x-ray fluorescence based metals measurement ...

  • Antifouling System Reduces Algal and Biological Growth on the In-Situ TROLL 9500 Water Quality Instrument

    Abstract New regulations regarding clean water have increased the need for long-term environmental monitoring. As water quality sensor technology improves and becomes more stable, the limiting factor in these projects becomes biological and non-biological fouling of instrumentation. Biofouling of environmental equipment increases site visits and maintenance, which elevate monitoring costs. ...

  • New Process Gas Analyzer for the Measurement of Water Vapor

    KEYWORDS TDLAS, WMS, Laser Spectroscopy, Water Vapor Measurement, Gas Analyzer ABSTRACT A new analyzer for the measurement of water vapor concentration based on Tunable Diode Laser Absorption Spectroscopy (TDLAS) was developed. The water-vapor line at 1854-nm was selected for the measurement, and the performance of the system was evaluated on different ...

  • A novel spectrometer design for process and handheld infrared spectral measurements

    Introduction Infrared spectroscopy offers many unique advantages for measurements within an industrial environment. Historically, the technique has been used for a broad range of applications from the composition of gas and liquid mixtures to the analysis of trace components for gas purity analysis. In cases where a well-defined method of analysis is involved, such as the measurement of ...

  • Pilot projects and their diffusion: a case study of integrated coastal management in South Africa

    Pilot projects are policy instruments mainly applied to introduce or test new practices, concepts or technologies. Pilot projects can lead to a broader policy transition. However, the diffusion process associated with the pilot projects is not well understood. In this paper, we investigate the diffusion of pilot projects, focusing on the nature of the diffusion (the innovation itself, ...

  • Time resolved liquid scintillation counting: (TR-LSC™) for environmental 3h analysis

    Environmental analysis of many naturally occurring and man-made, beta emitting radionuclides, including 3H, 14C, 90Sr/90Y, 241Pu, and 234Th is a significant analytical challenge due to the extremely low activity levels encountered. Under these circumstances, reducing instrument background is essential for improving analytical sensitivity. Time-Resolved Liquid Scintillation Counting (TR-LSC), a ...

  • Accuracy and precision analysis of chamber-based nitrous oxide gas flux estimates

    Chamber-based estimates of soil-to-atmosphere nitrous oxide (N2O) gas flux tend to underestimate actual emission rates due to inherently nonlinear time series data. In theory, this limitation can be minimized by adjusting measurement conditions to reduce nonlinearity and/or by using flux-calculation (FC) schemes that account for the so-called 'chamber effect.' The current study utilizes gas ...
