  • How do pressure swing adsorption nitrogen generators work?

    Adsorption is a gas separation process whereby the gas molecules adhere to a surface when under pressure. Adsorption allows for the ability to separate specific gasses, such as nitrogen, from compressed air by selecting an adsorbent material which unwanted gases more readily diffuse into. In the case of air-to-nitrogen separation, compressed air is passed through a cylinder containing a Carbon ...

  • Ozone systems for beginners

    This paper is intended for people who know a cooling tower when they see one but have little or no knowledge of their care or what part ozone plays. I have tried to make this as simple as possible and there is even a block diagram on the last page to help you out. Ready? Okay, here is what you need to know first: The sole function of ozone use in evaporative cooling towers is to disinfect water. ...

  • Every kilowatt utilised optimally

    Heat recovery with AERZEN blowers As a part of an extensive renovation project, the city of Filderstadt modernised the Bombach wastewater treatment plant, located in the district of Bonlanden. Now, Delta Hybrid rotary lobe compressors made by AERZEN provide optimal oxygen supply, and, thanks to heat recovery measures, the energy balance has improved further. Although ...

  • Biogas desulphurisation using the DMT multiple stage Sulfurex® process

    Global rising energy costs are focusing efforts by many industrial and municipal entities to find new sources of energy. Generating electricity from Biogas is of course nothing new however the cost of cleaning up certain Biogas streams with excessive levels of Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S) has previously proven to be financially unsustainable. Rising energy costs combined with improvements and cost ...

  • Hazardous chemicals and proper storage solutions

    Many acceptable categorical storage schemes have been proposed and used by laboratories in academic, industrial, government and medical institutions. The common features uniting all these plans is the separation of incompatible materials. The differences in these various storage schemes arises in the number of groups that should be established for segregation purposes. The ten most commonly cited ...

  • Gas detector communication technology for offshore oil and gas platforms

    In few applications is safety as important as on offshore oil and gas platforms. Explosive hazards from hydrocarbon gases and vapours are an ever-present risk, whilst toxic hydrogen sulphide gas and depleted oxygen environments can pose significant risks to personnel. Gas detectors are therefore essential to provide dependable early warning of gas hazards. Gas detectors are permanently installed ...

  • Efficient aeration system boosts energy savings

    A new efficient aeration system saves the Ontario, Ore., wastewater treatment facility $47,000 annually in energy costs. Besides giving this community a financial boost, the new system netted additional equipment cost savings by cutting aeration horsepower by more than half at the plant. The environmentally conscious city, located in the Oregon/Idaho border area, is meeting all of its effluent ...

  • Microturbines, Gas Engines Link Biogas to the Grid

    OPPORTUNITIES to produce electricity from methane are being improved continuously as manufacturers introduce new and upgraded equipment to address market needs and varying characteristics of raw biogas. In the renewable energy from organics recycling arena, the two primary types of electricity generation equipment are microturbines and reciprocating gas engines. This article provides a brief ...

  • Diesel economy is the benefit for the future

    Diesel fuel is a liquid product which is used as fuel in the diesel engine. It is received by oil distillation from kerosene and gas-oil fractions. It represents quite viscous and difficult evaporated combustible liquid. Generally it consists of carbons, some percentage of hydrogen, oxygen, sulfur and nitrogen. Such type of fuels is intended for high-speed diesel and gas-turbine engines of land ...

  • Combustible Dust: It Doesn’t Take Much

    A dust accumulation of 1/32 of an inch deep—about the thickness of a dime—covering just five percent of a room’s surface area doesn’t sound like much, but it’s enough to cause a catastrophic explosion, according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). Although good engineering and safety practices to prevent dust explosions have existed for decades, there ...

  • Detecting Gases: What You Can`t Smell Can Hurt You

    Walking through a drill-site area, a worker smells rotten eggs and stops tor a minute or two to assess where a gas leak might exist. Rubbing his itchv eves as he investigates further, he notices that he no longer smells the tell¬tale hydrogen sulphide odour. He does not realize that the gas has deadened his olfactory senses and unless he leaves the area within seconds, he could lose ...
