  • LG Sonic to automatically predict algal blooms

    LG Sonic will make use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to further develop the software algorithm which will make it possible to predict algal blooms based on water quality data automatically. Furthermore, it will provide detailed information about the intensity and the impact of the algal bloom on the ecosystem of the water body. The updated algorithm will be implemented in LG Sonic’s ...

  • 3 Scientific Tools to Help You Better Understand Your Water Quality

    There are many ways of testing and understanding your water quality with online scientific tools and models. One such resource is the National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) project run by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). The project, which was founded in 1991 to develop reliable information about water sources to support decisions on water quality management ...

  • Why Interactive Ultrasonic Programs are Important to Effectively Control Algae

    Many different algal types can bloom in a water body. Some of these algae are plant cells, while others are bacteria. Algae may vary in size, shape and cell characteristics. Typically, the type of algae that blooms depends on water temperature and sun hours. As a result, algal types may change several times during a season. To effectively  ...

  • The future is condition monitoring

    It’s been a big month here at Hansford Sensors. We kicked off November by celebrating our 10thanniversary, during which time we were playfully predicting what our company may look like in another decade. While our thoughts on this are strictly hypothetical at this stage, thanks to the release of a new report we now have a better idea of the state of the condition monitoring ...

  • Wallem and AO Schiffahrt uses FluidScan for Shipboard Condition Monitoring - Case study

    With depressed freight rates and overcapacity of shipping on lucrative trade routes, most shipping companies across the world are now practicing "slow steaming" operations. Operating the main "two-stroke" engines at 40-60% of their nominal output results in dramatically lower fuel costs but at high risk of cylinder cold corrosion if lubrication is not carefully managed. Adding to the complexity ...

  • Efficiency of wastewater treatment in SBR and IFAS-MBSBBR systems in specified technological conditions

    The objective of this study is to compare wastewater treatment effectiveness in sequencing batch reactor (SBR) and integrated fixed-film activated sludge–moving-bed sequencing batch biofilm reactor (IFAS-MBSBBR) systems in specific technological conditions. The comparison of these two technologies was based on the following assumptions, shared by both series, I and II: the reactor's active ...

  • Current Bridge Conditions in the United States.

    Bridges have been used throughout history to solve problems related to crossing an obstacle or getting past difficult terrain. They are essential for moving goods, people and connecting the country. Currently, most of the nation’s bridges are in poor condition and continue to deteriorate as time passes. Roughly 66,000 bridges ...

  • Using UV Fluorescent Technology to monitor for organic pollutants

    For many years the water industry has relied on traditional sampling techniques to monitor water quality in a wide range of environments. Traditional tests such as BOD, PH, Dissolved Oxygen and Ammonia have formed the bedrock of monitoring parameters. There are however other ways to establish water quality and UV fluorescence offers an up to date solution for the investigation of ...

  • New monitoring technology helps reveal Arctic secrets

    A group of Arctic researchers has employed the latest monitoring technology to investigate the effects of climate change, by measuring temperature and salinity in the water column beneath surface ice. The results of the investigation, which utilised YSI’s new 'Castaway-CTD', could cast new light on our understanding of the ways in which shifting ocean currents impact upon the climate in ...

  • Integrated condition assessment for Navy system of systems

    Although the US Navy has made great strides in integrating technology to monitor and assess the condition of sub–systems, little is understood about how to fuse this data in order to construct a higher level awareness of the ship's overall readiness or current state. Drawing upon systems theory and systems–based approaches, we identify principles of hierarchy, control, suboptimisation, and ...

  • Biotreatment of Odors from the Zimpro Sludge Conditioning Process

    Management of odor emissions generated during thermal sludge conditioning is a well known disadvantage of the “Zimpro” process. Traditional methods of using chemical oxidation and high temperature destruction result in the formation of secondary products, such as chlorine gas, organic halocarbons or nitrogen oxides. In this study, biotrickling filter technology was evaluated at the Villa Hills ...

  • Ecological Conditioning and Optimisation of a Once-Through Cooling Water System

    For the coming decade, Dow Benelux will need antifouling treatment for its cooling water system. Hypochlorite dosing is still considered to be the best available technology (BAT). This is based on proven effectiveness, large experience, moderate costs, opportunities to further optimise the chlorination procedure, and by the fact that in earlier studies low-level ...

  • How conditions affect cookies and air pollution control solutions

    Chocolate chip cookies are one of my favorite treats. Butter, sugar, eggs, flour, vanilla, and, of course, chocolate chips. Combine the ingredients together and you get a delicious cookie. Somehow, using the same ingredients the cookies do not always turn out the same. Sometimes they are thinner and crispier. Other times, they are soft and chewy. After watching cooking shows, I have come to ...
