  • A novel acoustic imaging tool for monitoring the state of rapid sand filters

    A new technology based on acoustic waves is developed to monitor the state of sand filters used in drinking water treatment. Changes in the sand filter, due to the removal of suspended particles from the water and their accumulation in the pores, result in an increase of the bulk density and acoustic speed of the granular material. Consequently, the reflected acoustic response changes as the ...

  • Application of Mossbauer and positron annihilation spectroscopies for monitoring of WWER RPV steel degradation

    This paper describes the application of Mossbauer Spectroscopy (MS) and Positron Annihilation Spectroscopy (PAS) to evaluate the microstructure parameters of materials. These methods are used to collect additional characteristics for understanding of degradation processes in Reactor Pressure Vessel (RPV) steels. Samples from the Russian 15Kh2MFA and Sv10KhMFT steels, commercially used at WWER-440 ...

  • The Monitoring and Pre-treatment of Brewery Trade Waste Prior to Discharge: Carlton & United Brewery

    Carlton United Brewery installed a Trade Waste Monitoring System to analyse the temperature, flows, pH and chemical compounds in their trade wastewater. This cleaner production initiative was a licensing condition of the Northern Territory's Power and Water Authority (PAWA). As a result of the pretreatment, CUB is able to discharge their brewery wastewater to sewer. Background ...


  • In situ microscopy as a tool for the monitoring of filamentous bacteria: a case study in an industrial activated sludge system dominated by M. parvicella

    The present study demonstrates the application of in situ microscopy for monitoring the growth of filamentous bacteria which can induce disturbances in an industrial activated sludge process. An in situ microscope (ISM) is immersed directly into samples of activated sludge with Microthrix parvicella as dominating species. Without needing further preparatory ...

  • Analysis of monitoring results of the separation and greywater treatment system at Chester Woods Park, Olmsted County, Minn.

    Introduction In 1993, Olmsted County installed an advanced individual sewage treatment system (ISTS) at the caretaker's residence at a County-owned park to demonstrate waste load reduction and downsizing of drainfield area. The subject system has two components--1) a composting/vermiculture blackwater system and a 2) aerobic graywater treatment system. The separation of the high strength ...


  • Compliance Corner - Develop and implement

    On March 25, 2003, the US Department of Transportation (DOT) issued an emergency revision to the Hazardous Materials Regulations (HMR) relating to security training and security planning for transporters and offerors (shippers) of hazardous materials (hazmat). DOT recognised a need to address growing concerns over the significant threat that hazmat can pose when it is used for malicious or ...

  • Nitrogen Tank or Cryogenic Dewar? Not Sure Where they are Installed? Here`s the List!

    Liquid nitrogen is used in a broad range of industries, from steelmaking and pharmaceutical to health care and ceramics. The inert gas is also used in laboratories, breweries, fine cooking, and more. Wherever liquid nitrogen is used, it must be stored securely so as not to mingle with air. Learn why nitrogen must be so carefully contained and where and how N2 gas is ...

  • A comparative study between composting and vermicomposting for recycling food wastes

    The main objective of the present work was to evaluate the potential of the epigeic earthworms Eisenia fetida and Eudrilus eugenaie regarding the decomposition of food wastes. The effectiveness of composting and vermicomposting for the treatment of food wastes was judged by analysing a wide range of physic–chemical parameters. The results from the compost process monitoring showed porosity rise ...
