  • Is your Plant as tight as you think? Leak Detector for extremely toxic Gases, a Field Test Report

    Leak detection of commodity gases in chemical plants is a day-to-day practice. The sensor technology available for this application is field proven and reliable. No question about it, existing sensors will do the job. However, in plants manufacturing or handling extremely toxic substances, the picture is different. For example, take phosgene. The existing sensor technology for leak detection ...

  • Use of In-Line Inaflatable Dams for CSO Control

    ABSTRACTThe Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) recently installed thirteen (13) in-line insystem storage devices (ISDs) in large combined sewers in Dearborn, Detroit, Hamtramck and Highland Park, Michigan. The ISDs are designed to store combined sewage in the sewers during wet weather, especially during smaller storms that do not utilize the full transport capacity of the sewers. The ...

  • Case study - Printed circuit board emissions

    Overview One of the world's largest printed circuit board (PCB) manufacturers was required to install air pollution abatement equipment to control the VOCs emitted during their soldering and coating process. Three main considerations were important to the customer: The need for a system with a competitive capital cost and the lowest possible operating cost ...

  • UV disinfection for enhanced oil recovery and other oilfield applications

    One of the biggest challenges facing oil companies today is how to extract more oil from the discoveries made in the last 40 years. Estimates vary, but approximately 66% of the discovered oil gets left in the ground. The International Energy Agency has estimated that if, in the next 20 years, this figure could be reduced to 50%, then this would increase the world's recoverable oil by 1.2 trillion ...

  • Gas Safety in Confined Spaces

    Introduction An offshore worker ensures a vessel is safe to enter; a plant manager enters a small plant room; a contractor inspects the lining of a sewage pipe.  All these personnel face common dangers, despite working in widely different industries.  Gas-related injury poses a serious threat in any confined space where the free movement of air is limited. A confined space ...

  • Safety Systems Depend on Reliable Field Sensors (Emphasis on Fire and Gas Detectors)

    Abstract Because not all hazards are the same, identifying and quantifying the hazard is the starting point in choosing sensing technology. Not all detectors are the same, and they should be selected according to their ability to detect the hazard. This paper gives a broad summary of technologies that provide users reliable responses to hazardous conditions, that minimise false ...
