  • Approaches to Chemical Control

    Hazardous material is anything that poses a threat to human health and the environment. Most hazardous materials are generated from chemicals. To provide the highest degree of protection for society and the environment from the dangers, stringent controls throughout the lifecycle of the material, starting with import or manufacture and ending with disposal, is necessary. Many governments consider ...

  • White paper - Chemical feed control

    The controls, alarms and external contacts are shown on the drawings. As the amount of chemical needed to neutralize the wastewater varies exponentially from neutral pH 7, special consideration must be given to control overshooting the pH. Chemicals, especially viscous caustic soda, must be fully mixed in the compartment before more is added. Rather than modulating the pump settings, the pump is ...

  • Chemical free, ultrasonic algae control

    Among the numerous applications of ultrasound, the approach is used in the field of water treatment. In this scenario, forces other than cavitation forces are being used to achieve a certain goal. An example of such ultrasound systems which can be found on the market are the LG Sonic systems,which are manufactured to suppress algal growth and biofilm formation. The ultrasounds produced by using ...

  • Chemical and ecological control methods for Epitrix spp.

    Very little information exists in regards to the control options available for potato flea beetles, Epitrix spp. This short review covers both chemical and ecological options currently available for control of Epitrix spp. Synthetic pyrethroids are the weapon of choice for the beetles. However, the impetus in integrated pest management is to do timely (early-season) applications with something ...

  • Modelling and simulation framework for pollution control of chemical processes

    During process design, it is possible to evaluate and control pollution that might occur during actual operation. This paper presents computer-aided design framework that enables the design team to define process design model elements and to measure possible pollution at each design step using performance indexes of pollution measures as mapped to process variables. Modelling methodology, called ...

  • Chemical Corner

    So, you’re well aware of all REACH and CLP regulations and you’ve gone to great lengths to ensure your operations and products are compliant with EU regulation. That’s great news. But in the case of Europe, that’s not where the regulations end. Beyond these requirements, you often have to comply with additional, country-specific rules to import, manufacture or sell ...

  • Watershed land use controls on chemical inputs to lake ontario embayments

    Received for publication August 20, 2007. There is considerable interest in understanding the role of land use in controlling surface water quality. This study was conducted to assess the role of land cover in regulating temporal and spatial patterns in nutrients and major solutes in rivers that drain into Lake Ontario. Water samples were collected monthly from 22 river sites in subwatersheds of ...

  • Automatic control of the effluent turbidity from a chemically enhanced primary treatment with microsieving

    For chemically enhanced primary treatment (CEPT) with microsieving, a feedback proportional integral controller combined with a feedforward compensator was used in large pilot scale to control effluent water turbidity to desired set points. The effluent water turbidity from the microsieve was maintained at various set points in the range 12–80 NTU basically independent for a number of studied ...

  • Emission Control Strategies and Technologies for the Chemical Processing Industry: An interview with Chris Anguil

    AC: Could you please provide our readers with a brief introduction to the industries that Anguil Environmental works within? CA: Our thermal and catalytic oxidizer systems are applied on any industrial process that is regulated for Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) or Nitrogen Oxides (NOX). Some of these industries include chemical ...

  • Chemical feed control using coagulation computer models and a streaming current detector

    This paper describes the use of both the streaming current detector (SCD) and coagulation computer models to provide real-time data for required coagulant feed rates. The method for computer modeling of coagulation and other water treatment processes/operations was originally developed for Lake Michigan Filtration Plant in Grand Rapids, Michigan (MI). Since the initial implementation, a number ...

  • Real time control for reduced aeration and chemical consumption: a full scale study

    The use of the activated sludge process (ASP) for the nitrification/denitrification of wastewaters is commonplace throughout the UK and many other parts of the industrial world. Associated with this process are significant costs arising from aeration requirements and for selected sites, the need to provide an external carbon source. These costs can constitute up to of 50% of the total running ...
