  • Explosion Proof vs Intrinsically Safe Gas Detectors

    It only takes a spark to start a fire or cause an explosion, especially when flammable gases or vapours are present under the right conditions. There are industries that operate in these types of hazardous environments where the potential for explosions is extremely high, such as chemical plants, oil refineries, paint shops, cleaning facilities, tanks and loading facilities for flammable gases, ...

  • Explosion proof high vacuum dual-phase extraction

    This an integrated explosion proof system for the simultaneous extraction of soil vapour and groundwater at potentially explosive concentrations. With a pH of 1 to 2, the groundwater was extremely aggresive and required neutralisation.The system included a double header system (high vacuum and low vacuum) enabling simultaneous extraction from small diameter dual-phase extraction lances and larger ...


  • Multi-phase extraction system (explosion proof) with LNAPL skimming

    This project has entailed the installation of 29 recovery wells within a large building connected to the remediation system via 1 km of pipework suspended from the ceiling. Recovery wells are installed within subsurface well chambers and short trenches provide ducting for the pipeworks.The remediation system includes Xitech ADJ 1000 smart skimmers for the recovery of floating white spirits (where ...

  • Flammable Hazards

    Flammable Hazards The difference between a gas and a vapor is that vapors arise from liquids, whereas gases are normally in a gaseous state. Flammable vapors present additional sampling concerns (for example, we must prevent vapors from returning to the liquid state during sampling). The 3 Elements of Fire Three elements must be present for a flammable ...

  • Improving Safety by Conforming to Industry Standards and Certifications

    Abstract Globally, safety standards play a key role in designing and executing gas and flameame detection projects. How can these standards, which might seem cumbersome at times, help users make informed decisions? What information can be used to assist in conforming to standards and maximizing safety? This paper will analyze standards from an end-user view, will consider ...

  • Piston Diaphragm Pump

    Piston Diaphragm Pump Emmerich’s competitors technologically speaking are Abel, Feluwa, and Geho. Each manufacturer have slight differences which we taunt, but in reality they are all excellent pumps. After working with my first Feluwa pump in 1976 feeding a filter press at Sperry Univac in Salt Lake City, I realized that piston ...

  • Pumping water to decontaminate a karstic spring

    After being struck by lightning, an underground military fuel tank lost all its contents. After a few hours, petrol mixed with foam began to flow out of the nearby Forame spring, situated about 400 m away and at a height of 7.0 m lower than the bottom of the tank. The spring feeds the Giavera stream which, after about 1000 m enters the upper Veneto plain, flowing into the irrigation network. ...
