  • Nitro Beer Tastes Better

    If you've ever remarked on the smooth creaminess of a pint of Guinness, you've picked up on the key difference in its carbonation: Nitrogen rather than carbon dioxide. Such "nitro" beers have become a trend in recent years, with major U.S. breweries and small startups alike offering nitro products. Nitrogen keeps bitterness in check and balances out the hops to make drinkable craft brews, but it ...

  • Field demonstration of a near-real-time multi-metals ambient fence line monitor case study

    National emissions standards for hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) are required under Section 112 of the Clean Air Act to limit the release of specified HAPs. Permitting, monitoring and enforcement of these emission limits are an integral part of managing air quality to protect human health and the environment. However, this is difficult and highly uncertain in the case of fugitive emissions ...

  • Guide for developing a multi-metals, Fence-line monitoring plan for fugitive emissions using x-ray based Monitorsa case study

    Airborne metals and metal compounds are of particular concern to human health. Not only are they included in the United States (U.S.) Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) list of 187 hazardous air pollutants (HAPs), they represent 8 of the 33 urban pollutants identified by the EPA as posing the greatest potential health threat in urban areas. This is particularly significant since 80% of ...

  • Pneumatic Focusing Gas Chromatography: A 3-in-1 Continuous, Automated, Ambient-Fence line-Fugitive Emissions Instrument

    This project involved design improvements in both software and hardware, and commercialization of our Pneumatic Focusing Gas Chromatography technology for continuous monitoring of VOCs and Air Toxics and demonstration of its performance in year-long monitoring programs at an EPA Superfund site in Fargo North Dakota and an Oregon Department of Environmental Quality Air Toxics site in Portland ...

  • Planning For Fenceline Monitoring

    The development of a general framework for fence-line monitoring can go a long way toward getting a plan quickly implemented, with less stress and potentially large cost-savings. Automation can greatly reduce operational costs of the fence-line monitoring as well as reducing data loss due to equipment problems. No facilty expects to do fence-line monitoring, therefore they seldom plan for it, but ...

    A New Approach to Fouling Control Neosens offers innovative, cost effective sensor solutions for monitoring the presence of biofilm and scale in cooling towers, heat exchangers and other industrial process applications. Fouling in cooling systems is a worldwide, multi-billion dollar problem, reducing energy efficiency, increasing maintenance costs and creating health risks due to ...


  • Measuring unburned carbon in flyash with an automated, on-line monitor

    Increasingly stringent NOx regulations have required plant operators to modify traditional combustion processes. SOx regulations and deregulation have forced plant operators to diversify their coal sources. And new mercury control requirements have been instituted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. These changes challenge plant operators who are trying to achieve the low carbon levels ...

  • On-line monitoring of enzymatic activities in water and water resources

    On-site detection of enzymatic activities has been suggested as a rapid surrogate for microbiological pollution monitoring of water resources (e.g. using glucuronidases, galactosidases, esterases). Due to the possible short measuring intervals enzymatic methods have high potential as near-real time water quality monitoring tools. This presentation describes the successful realization and ...

  • Continuous on-line monitoring of dissolved oxygen in the activated sludge of a sewage treatment plant

    Dissolved oxygen is traditionally measured using a Clark cell, which relies upon a gas-permeable membrane for its opera-tion. Such sensors are subject to fouling with subsequent loss of accuracy, making frequent maintenance and calibration necessary. The objective of this development was to take advantage of specific properties of microelectrode arrays, such as low flow-dependence, insensitivity ...

  • Monitoring Phenol in Water

    The Situation A plant located in the eastern United States manufactures phenolic resin for applications in plastics molding. This plant uses well water for cooling its reaction process and then discharges the water into a local creek. A leak in the reactor and associated cooling equipment would cause phenol and phenolic compounds to contaminate the cooling water. Such a leak could ...

  • Radiation Monitors and Meters

    Light Description and Applications The light meter is a portable unit designed to measure visible, UV, and near-UV light in the workplace. (The CTC has a UV light meter available through its loan program, ALEP.) The light meter is capable of reading any optical unit of energy or power level if the appropriate detector has been calibrated with the meter. The spectral range of the instrument is ...

  • Monitoring Environmental Quality

    ' In order to determine the effectiveness of actions to improve environmental quality it is necessary to be able to measure relevant environmental parameters at a level of detail which is accurate enough to distinguish the anticipated changes. However, the establishment and maintenance of monitoring systems is time-consuming and expensive and therefore the scale of such systems needs to be kept ...

  • Municipal sewer remote monitoring

    Sewers are critical heavy duty infrastructure components requiring costly maintenance. Many municipalities suffer from ageing pipelines that pose higher chances of failure. Sewer leak or overflow results in high cost as a result of civil reimbursement and due to inflected illness. Moreover Civilian frustration that results form the overflow is often targeted towards the municipality. Overflow can ...
