  • Read about Confined Space in Construction and Atmospheric Testing Right Here!

    In 1993, 29 CFR 1910.146 went into effect as the first federal legislation governing entry into permit-required confined spaces in general industry. Because some industries, such as the construction industry, were covered by specific Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) safety regulations, they were exempt from the confined space entry requirements of the general industry rule. ...

  • U.S. EPA volatile organics method 524.2 using PURGE and TRAP GC/MS

    Clean drinking water is of worldwide interest. Contaminants can compromise the quality of a water supply and cause short- and long-term health effects. Stringent water quality criteria help to ensure safe drinking water by requiring the detection and quantification of a wide variety of contaminants at extremely low levels. U.S. EPA Method 524.2 (1) provides the guidance necessary for identifying ...

  • Smart LDAR — more cost-effective?

    On December 19, 2008, EPA issued a final rule establishing a voluntary Alternative Work Practice (AWP) to detect leaks of volatile organic compounds (VOC) and hazardous air pollutants (HAP) from process equipment (FR Vol. 73, Number 246), thereby providing the regulated community additional flexibility in complying with leak detection and repair (LDAR) requirements. The AWP allows owners or ...

  • Sample System Best Practices for Water and Hydrocarbon DP Applications

    Abstract Sampling techniques for BTU and moisture measurements are well understood but applications beyond the routine requires additional attention to detail. Two such applications are the subject of this paper. The first is the measurement of low level moisture (1 – 1,000 ppbv) for cryogenic processes. Measuring moisture below 1 ppm is an entirely different world from the traditional ...

  • Preliminary assessment of trace metals and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in the sediments

    Total concentrations of Cd, Cr, Co, Fe, Pb, Ni, Mn and Zn were determined by atomic absorption spectrophotometry in the surface sediments of Taylor Creek, Southern Nigeria. The most concentrated trace metals, ranging from 113.2 to 5160.7 mg/g-dry weights were Fe, Pb, Mn, Ni and Zn. There was no significant variation in sediment-associated metal levels (P>0.05). The Metal Pollution Index (MPI) was ...

  • University Environmental Health & Safety Departments: Handling Compressed Nitrogen and Cryogenics

    An explosion at a university research lab in Hawaii last year highlights the dangers of working with compressed gas and the need for safety equipment on campus.

  • How Accurate is Your Monitor?

    When you consider the many regulations and guidelines that health and safety officers and first responders are faced with, it is amazing they maintain the ability to detect such a wide variety of hazardous pollutants and toxic agents.  There is no lack of regulations governing how to monitor chemical compounds, and the list grows longer all the time.  New standards for portable gas ...

  • PID in industrial hygiene

    Industrial (or occupational) hygiene places the emphasis on prevention of ill health from work, through recognising, evaluating and controlling the risks. For anyone working with hazardous compounds, these chemicals represent a significant potential source of risk. Modern PID instruments provide reliable detection of over 200 of the most dangerous chemicals, helping to ensure effective industrial ...

  • AGIP KCO - H2S elimination

    CETCO was approached by AGIP KCO and asked to propose a treatment package capable of Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S) removal from aqueous fluid returns from well flow back and stimulation activities. These activities were planned for new well perforation flow backs and acid stimulations in the Caspian Sea off the coast of Kazakhstan. Here, production wells typically produce gas with extremely high ...
