  • Carbon dioxide gas case study

    Application Moisture] is measured in carbon dioxide gas pipelines and processing plants. Problem The presence of moisture in carbon dioxide gas promotes corrosion. Perhaps more significant is the fact that moisture will readily form ice when pressure is reduced. The ice can readily freeze up pressure regulators, valves, and orifice plates causing a loss of flow and even ice ...

  • Carbon Monoxide, Carbon Dioxide and Indoor Air Quality

    Chances are that unless you are hot or cold – or if you smell something funny – you probably never think about indoor air quality. However, scientists know that gases in the air that you cannot see or smell can still affect your health. Carbon Monoxide The most dangerous gas most of us will ever face is carbon monoxide (CO). Not normally occurring in nature, this ...

  • Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Safety

    Know the Gases, Know the Dangers and Protect Yourself Do you know the differences between carbon monoxide (CO) and carbon dioxide (CO2)? If you don’t then there are no guarantees your safety measures will be adequate. These two different gases are often mixed up with people becoming confused over which they need to protect against, when and how. ...

  • Carbon Monoxide (CO) Versus Carbon Dioxide (CO2)

    Carbon monoxide (CO) and carbon dioxide (CO2) are often mistaken for one another. Both gases are odourless and colorless and target the cardiovascular system. Both gases can enter the body through inhalation, skin and / or eye. Similar symptoms that both gases have in common are headaches, dizziness, seizures, and hallucination. Most people have a hard time determining the difference and do not ...

  • Why is a carbon dioxide monitor a good investment?

    The easiest way to check if your house is encapsulating gases is to monitor the carbon dioxide (CO2) levels. This one gas is used as a marker for air quality, is the easiest to monitor, and provides a more accurate air quality reading. It is a good trend indicator because it changes in measurable amounts as the air quality gets worse. All other gasses in the house follow the same trend as the ...

  • Feasibility Study of Using Brine for Carbon Dioxide Capture

    ABSTRACT A laboratory-scale reactor was developed to evaluate the capture of carbon dioxide (CO2) from a gas into a liquid as an approach to control greenhouse gases emitted from fixed sources. CO2 at 5–50% concentrations was passed through a gas-exchange membrane and transferred ...

  • Capture of carbon dioxide by solid amine sorbents

    The reaction of tetraethylorthrosilcate (TEOS) with y-aminopropyltriethoxysilane (APTS) has produced stable solid amine sorbents for the capture of carbon dioxide. The resulting amine-enriched silicon sorbent (SBA-15) has been proven to be competitive with existing environmental CO2 controlled life sorbents based on the immobilised amine technology. XPS analysis has indicated that the amine ...

  • Functionalised mesoporous silica membrane for the separation of carbon dioxide

    Defect-free mesoporous silica membranes (MCM-41 and MCM-48) were obtained by spin-coating and the solution growth method; 3-aminopropylsilyl groups were attached to the surface of these silica membranes. The pore size control in these novel silica membranes was achieved by direct synthesis employing cationic surfactants and post-synthesis silylation procedure using silane coupling agents. The SEM ...

  • Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Leak in Soda Machines

    Carbon dioxide, also known as CO2, is a very well known gas type but not everyone knows how deadly it is. Most people know it as a gas that humans exhale but commercially, it is manufactured and shipped as a liquefied compressed gas or is used as dry ice in its solid form. A common use of CO2 gas is in soda fountain machines to carbonate soft drinks by pressurizing the CO2 ...

  • Reduced Emissions for Landfill Gas Installations

    The use of landfill gas as a source of renewable energy is increasing. For environmental and safety reasons, the owners of the waste storage sites have to strictly monitor and control the construction, operations, and emissions generated. Sulzer offers solutions to control these emissions within the limits given by the government. Landfill gas is similar to natural gas, but it is created by ...

  • A Critical Evaluation of the South African Air Quality Offsets Guideline

    There is wide recognition in South Africa to the link between the quality of life and quality of the air we breathe. The Department of Environmental Affairs (DEA) attempts to improve air quality through two key regulatory tools; emission limits, which regulate the maximum concentration of certain pollutants permissible within certain, ‘listed’ industrial stacks or vents, and ambient ...

  • Seven Ways Your Facility Isn’t Meeting Effluent Regulations and How to Solve Them

    Whether you own, operate, or help manage a municipal or industrial facility that deals with wastewater, it’s important to understand how wastewater treatment can play a significant role in the overall health of your business, especially when it comes to meeting effluent regulations. This is an important part of the wastewater treatment process to consider, as ignoring it could earn your ...

  • Monitoring Ethylene (C2H4) and Carbon Dioxide (CO2) in Ripening Rooms

    As fruit and vegetables ripen, they release ethylene, a naturally occurring growth hormone. To be profitable and meet demands, commercial fresh produce companies need to speed up the ripening process in a uniform and predictable way, which is achieved by adding more ethylene in a controlled environment. Typically the fresh produce is placed in air-tight ripening rooms and ethylene is introduced ...

  • Diurnal and seasonal variations of carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide in Delhi city

    Motor vehicle exhaust emissions are one of the major causes of air quality deterioration in most of the cities of the developing world. Carbon monoxide (CO) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) are significant contributors to this adverse effect on the environment. This study analyses air quality data for three years from 1997 to 1999, at two air quality control regions in Delhi city. The regions are ...

  • Interactive effects of carbon dioxide and water stress on potato canopy growth and development

    Reductions in potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) canopy growth are observed with mild water stress. Potato growth is enhanced by elevated atmospheric carbon dioxide ([CO2]), but interactions of [CO2] and water stress on canopy formation and dry matter partitioning have not been studied. Two soil-plant-atmosphere research (SPAR) experiments were conducted at 370 or 740 µmol mol–1 [CO2] and six ...

  • Greene King Brewery gas leak – carbon dioxide in breweries

    On Thursday 15 October 2015, a carbon dioxide leak occurred at the Greene King Brewery on an estate in Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk. Emergency services were sent to the incident and nearby residents were evacuated as a precaution. Twenty people were rescued from the building, and the incident was quickly taken control of. ...
