  • Magnetic Ion Exchange Solves Problems

    In 2004, Big Elk Water Association, near Estes Park, Colo., earned the unenviable Environmental Working Group label of Colorado water system with the worst quality water. Despite multiprocess treatment, BEWA’s finished water had some of the highest concentrations of total trihalomethanes (TTHMs) and haloacetic acids (HAA5) in the state. BEWA delivers water to about ...

  • 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 ...

  • What’s New? Maximizing The Life Of Aging Metallic Pipelines With Modern In-Line Technology

    Maximizing the life of aging pipelines has long been a challenge in North America. Owners of large diameter water and wastewater infrastructure face particular condition assessment challenges, owing to factors such as financial constraints, environmental concerns and access restrictions, which compound the problem. While desktop studies can help identify pipes with a likelihood and consequence of ...

  • Portable PMI Instruments

    Positive material identification (PMI) is a powerful methodology for assuring that manufacturing companies operate with greater profit, more efficiency, and the highest possible leveis of safety. The requirement for PMI of alloy materials in refinery systems and petrochemical plant operations has grown dramatically from the late 1970s when it was a rarity, to nearly 100% PMI in today’s risk-based ...

  • Moisture in Oils: The Three-Headed Beast

    Abstract Moisture contamination in in-service lube oils is perhaps one of the most destructive forms of engine corrosion second only to particle contamination.  Water contamination in oil can be categorized into three forms of water; Free, emulsified, and dissolved.  All forms of water have direct consequences to the oil and gears of the engine, but indirect consequences as ...

  • Methodology for sampling drinking water discolouration loose deposits at low velocities

    The occurrence of discoloured water at the tap is one of the most frequent reasons for customers to complain. Water discolouration arises from the re-suspension of loose deposits (LD) that accumulate in drinking water pipes, due to velocity increase. Because of its typical brownish/reddish colour, discoloured water is traditionally perceived as a consequence of cast-iron pipe corrosion, even in ...

  • Quantitative pipe condition assessment with Pipe Penetrating Radar

    Abstract Pipe Penetrating Radar (PPR) is the underground in-pipe application of GPR, a non-destructive testing method that can detect defects and cavities within and outside mainline diameter (>18 in / 450mm) non-ferrous (reinforced concrete, vitrified clay, PVC, HDPE, etc.) pipes. The key advantage of PPR is the unique ability to map pipe wall thickness and deterioration including voids ...
