  • What`s the Best Air Pollution Control Technology for My Process?

    Air pollution control equipment is not something that business owners address by saying, “Let’s do the right thing for the environment and install an oxidizer!” In fact, the scenario is more likely to be “We need to increase productivity (always a good thing!), but that will put us over our annual emissions limits. Do we know what we will need? Where do we start? Who can ...

  • Secondary Oil Containment at US Army Corps of Engineers - Big Bend Dam - Case Study

    Big Bend Dam takes its name from the unique bend in the Missouri River seven miles upstream from the dam. Construction of the dam began in 1959 and the embankment was completed in July 1963. Big Bend dam is 95 feet (29 m) high and 10,570 feet (3,220 m) in length. Power generation began at the facility in 1964 and the entire complex was completed by 1966. The hydroelectric plant generates ...

  • LED Applications for Oil and Gas Refining and Processing

    Oil and gas processing facilities are unsafe due to the existence of hazardous compounds during operations. When addressing such issues, companies in the sector may deploy explosion proof lighting systems to prevent the ignition of sparks created from the electrical equipment. The adoption of LED technology in oil and gas refineries has helped reinforce key safety measures associated with ...

  • Mechanistic Analysis of the Fire Performance of a Fire Retardant System

    The behavior of a fire retardant in polypropylene is studied in order to improve the understanding of its activity in terms of its chemical behavior. The effect of a N-alkoxy hindered amine light stabilizer upon the fire performance of this system is also considered. The authors relate fire performance (UL 94, OI, NOI) and thermal analyses (TGA and thin film FTIR) results to cone calorimeter fire ...

  • Use of analytic hierarchy process and fire dynamics simulator to assess the fire protection systems in a tunnel on fire

    The road and rail tunnels are increasing in number. Corresponding to this higher number of tunnels, a higher number of accidents related to safety problems occur. The safety of road and rail tunnels is mostly related to fire safety. Our purpose in this paper is to present a new integrated approach to the analysis of fire safety in tunnels. Using different techniques from the decision support ...

  • Co-Fire Naturally

    PRM Energy System’s Naturally Gas Cofiring Machine Your PRME Naturally produced biogas will come from biomass – not fossil fuels. Technically speaking, you will be “co-firing” gas produced by the thermal gasification of biomass. PRME’s Naturally Gas Co-firing process design is not experimental or “under development”, but has been commercially firing ...

  • Fire access lane test

    The GEOBLOCK porous pavement system is a series of interlocking blocks designed to offer turf protection and load support in areas used by heavy vehicles. The blocks create a flexible structure bridge system within the topsoil layer to support and distribute concentrated loads. The system is used successfully for a wide range of applications, including emergency vehicle access lanes, auxiliary ...

  • Biomass-fired fuel cells

    The results are presented of a techno-economic analysis of systems integrating biomass gasification plant with phosphoric acid and molten carbonate fuel cells. The cases studied relate to the generation of electricity at a scale of 500 kWe. At this level, the plant would be suitable for small-scale commercial or industrial application and would allow for the export of surplus electricity. The ...

  • The wildland fire threat

    The threat of wildfire is a major concern to more and more homeowners as construction of homes moves into the Wildland Urban Interface. Periods of drought are frightening times for residents of suburban and rural areas across the country, including the Northwest, the West, and the Rocky Mountain states as well as the Southeast. For those of us who live near natural areas of brush or forest, the ...


  • J566 fire suppression unit

    Client: Sporting Edge Area: Norway & Dubai We were approached by Sporting Edge to build a Fire Suppression unit that would be incorporated in a large data centre in Oslo and also another unit for Dubai. These units replaced the ‘argon dump’ systems currently installed, thus making the data centres safer. The Fire Suppression system takes the oxygen ...

  • Residential building electrical fires

    Electricity is a basic part of residential life in the United States. It provides the energy for most powered items in a contemporary home, from lights to heating systems to televisions. Today it is hard to imagine a residence without electricity. It is a part of our homes and our activities that most of us take for granted. We rarely think how powerful electricity is. Yet, using electricity can ...

  • FTSE4 Good Under Fire

    The choice of constituents for the FTSE4Good family of equity indexes has puzzled many managers of socially responsible investment funds. But an early review of the list and a commitment to refine the selection process may placate some of the critics, says Graham Cooper. The composition of the FTSE4Good family of equity indexes – revealed on 10 July – has run into criticism from many fund ...


  • Forest Fires in Europe 2005

    The European Union is supporting since the Eighties the efforts implemented by Member States to fight forest fires in all their stages: prevention, suppression and restoration. That’s because forest fires can severely affect all the functions developed by the forests of the Community from the economic, ecologic and social point of view; they can also better and more effectively be counteracted ...


  • A system dynamics model of the fire department EMS in Taiwan

    Allocation of pre-hospital EMS (Emergency Medical Service) resources and effectiveness of emergency medical training are critical to patients. The demands for EMS are expected to increase in the future. By analysing the relationship between emergency response and the survival rates, the effectiveness of EMS resources and competence of personnel were evaluated. In other words, the current EMS ...

  • If the fire doesn’t kill you, the CO2 might – carbon dioxide and fire suppression

    Carbon dioxide (CO2) has been used in fire extinguishers and fire suppression systems for more than a hundred years. In high concentrations it dilutes oxygen, thus removing one of the three elements of the combustion triangle (the other two being heat and fuel). It is also cheap, widely available, odourless, colourless, electrically non-conductive, chemically inert and it leaves no residue. It is ...

  • Fire and Gas Protection Systems as Part of Safety Instrumented Systems and Risk Management

    Garth Watkins, Director Europe, Middle East, Africa, Detector Electronics Corporation, Presented at HazardEx International Conference 2008 Process-systems operators today face increasing demands for lower costs and higher safety standards in an increasingly regulated environment. In addition, companies desire to provide a working environment that is as safe as possible. As a result, plant owners ...

  • Importance of Dry Risers for Fire Safety

    Fighting fires in high rise buildings is challenging. It would not be possible for firemen to just aim their hoses from the ground floor and hope to reach those floors that are higher up. It would also not be feasible for them to run up flights of stairs trailing a hose behind them. Many high rise buildings can have twenty floors or more and a fire can happen anywhere. The ability to get water to ...
