corrosion control service Articles

  • Corrosion Inspection

    Everything made of metal is susceptible to corrosion and can effect every non-service industry to one degree or another by the direct or indirect costs of corrosion prevention, mitigation or repair. The VJ-Advance (VJ-ADV) video borescope was used to take images above. The VJ-ADV is the ideal choice for any technician involved in corrosion control. No other borescope offers this level of ...

  • Controlling corrosion in the back end of fuel cycle using nitric acid grade stainless steels

    The materials for use in nitric acid service have to be resistant to intergranular corrosion and have low general corrosion rates. End grain corrosion resulting from inclusions and segregation along dislocation bands needs to be minimised. The Nitric Acid Grade of stainless steel resistant to these corrosion problems has been indigenously produced. It is emphasised that proper fabrication ...

  • Bird control for commercial applications

    Building owners and businesses spend millions of dollars annually to deal with infestations and the problems associated with pest birds. The risks associated with these pests increase year after year as bird populations continue to grow in both inner city and urban environments. The fact is, these pests are out of their natural element and without proper bird control measures, they can wreak ...

  • Wind turbine controlling of the future

    Higher, more robust, more reliable: Parallel to the growing requirements for wind turbines, the requirements for monitoring sensors grow as well. But how can wind sensor manufacturers fulfil these wishes? And how should a future wind sensors look like? After analysing the current conditions and trends on the wind energy market, our CEO Klaus Hirzel compiled a wish list for future wind sensors. ...

  • Data Center Contamination Control: A Case Study

    In order to continue to deliver relevant and timely information, we polled a number of those receiving this newsletter as to what topics they would most like to see. The overwhelming majority came back with requests for more case studies and applications. Therefore, this month’s newsletter will be the first of several cases studies we will present over the coming months. And as always, we ...

  • Fluid control saves $1 million at automotive supplier

    The Problem: A Michigan wheel manufacturer was facing numerous problems associated with the quality and maintenance of their coolant and cleaners. These problems included downtime quality control rejections due to corrosion of parts, pumps clogging with biological matter, and operator complaints of coolant odors. Concurrently, the plant needed to reduce fluid-related costs and improve data ...

  • Wastewater-Solids Dewatering Odor Control - Case Study

    Background The Milan Wastewater Treatment Plant, located just south of Moline, Illinois, is a 1.7 MGD (6,434 m3/day) activated sludge facility with an average wastewater flow of 700,000 gpd to 800,000 gpd. This facility dewaters primary sludge using a belt filter press (Figure 1). The press operates an average of three times per month, 8 hours per day at a pump rate of 100 gpm. The ...

  • Wet electrostatic precipitators: A preferred technology for emission control

    The basic science behind electrostatic precipitators is as familiar and as simple as static cling. But today, this elemental force has been harnessed to a technology that is helping to remove millions of tons of toxic chemicals from our atmosphere; saving billions of dollars annually in pollution-related physical damage; and averting costly impacts on health and mortality rates for millions of ...

  • Controlling Stack Emissions in the Wood Products Industry

    Electrostatic precipitation has been a reliable technology since the early 1900's. Originally developed to abate serious smoke nuisances, the manufacturers of zinc, copper, and lead quickly found electric gas cleaning a cost efficient way to recover valuable product carried out of the stacks from furnace operations. Today electrostatic precipitators are found mainly on large power plants, cement ...


  • Real-time TOC tightens effluent control at Greencore

    A food manufacturing facility in Selby has installed a new continuous TOC (Total Organic Carbon) monitor, ‘the BioTector’ which has dramatically improved the site’s capability to refine and improve the plant’s wastewater treatment process. As a result the plant is better able to quickly respond to changes in the influent. Greencore Foods is a leading player in the food ...


  • The Control of pH and Oxidation Reduction Potential (ORP) in Cooling Tower Applications

    The importance of keeping cooling tower water in proper chemical balance is becoming clearer. Cooling tower treatment control systems can limit scale formation to improve efficiency, limit corrosion to increase the service life of the cooling water system, and maintain a residual halogen level to reduce liability associated with biological growth, particularly Legionellae.   The use of ...
