  • Downflow filtration technology keeps contaminants at bay

    Just south of present day Lumpkin, GA, you can visit a reconstructed community from the 1850s and experience a taste of everyday life from that time period. In dramatic contrast, you will also find one of the water and wastewater industry’s most advanced filtration technologies in this same area. This technology was installed specifically to protect the Lumpkin area from the damaging effects of ...


  • Advances in gas control technology in the brewery

    The use of nitrogen as a process gas, foam enhancer and flavour modifier has come to the fore over the last 10 years, with dissolved gas specifications becoming more stringent. Increasingly, marketing and consumer requirements for a targeted product identity or image have to be met, not only for taste but, perhaps equally as importantly for the consumer, ...

  • Keeping Water Soft -- Next Generation Filtration for the Oil & Gas Industry

    There is a need in many segments of the oil and gas production industry for an improvement in water filtration over traditional methods. This is especially true since the trend in oil and gas production is toward tighter, less permeable reservoirs and greater use of Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) techniques, many of which involve injecting water into oil reservoirs. In order to protect ...

  • Water treatment technology for produced water

    Large amounts of produced water are generated during oil and gas production. Produced water, as it is known in the oil industry, is briny fluid trapped in the rock of oil reservoirs. The objective of this study was to test produced waters from a Montana USA oilfield using a mobile station to design a plant to cost efficiently treat the produced water for agricultural irrigation. We used combined ...

  • The Next-Generation Water Filter for the Oil and Gas Industry

    Many segments of the oil and gas production industry need improvements in water filtration over traditional methods. This is true because of the trend toward oil and gas production in tighter, less permeable reservoirs and the greater use of enhanced oil recovery (EOR) techniques, many of which involve injecting water into the oil reservoir. To protect the integrity of such reservoirs, the amount ...

  • Lucent Technologies low level oxygen removal

    The increasing complexity and level of intergration in ULSI devices is requiring higher levels of water purity.  A typical wafer uses between 20 to 200 separate rinsing steps.  Impurities in the rinse water such as particles, high dissolved oxygen content, organic contaminants and gas bubbles can cause defects.  Controlling oxide formation on the wafer surface is one of the reasons for reducing ...

  • Wet electrostatic precipitators: A preferred technology for emission control

    The basic science behind electrostatic precipitators is as familiar and as simple as static cling. But today, this elemental force has been harnessed to a technology that is helping to remove millions of tons of toxic chemicals from our atmosphere; saving billions of dollars annually in pollution-related physical damage; and averting costly impacts on health and mortality rates for millions of ...

  • Assessing decentralised wastewater treatment technologies: correlating technology selection to system robustness, energy consumption and GHG emission

    In this study, we compared two different types of decentralised systems in South East Queensland (SEQ) designed to produce Class A+ recycled water, and assessed their system robustness to shock loads, energy consumption and fugitive greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. We found that through BioWin® modelling, the membrane reactor (MBR) system was relatively robust to hydraulic ...

  • Deareation: degasification of water using novel membrane technology

    Dissolved oxygen, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide are naturally present in water. Dissolved gases should be carefully monitored and controlled, as they can affect the products and processes in which the water is used. For example, dissolved oxygen can react with metais, forming an oxide Iayer on the surface of finished productsorpipingmaterial. AIso,asthe water ...

  • Indoor Air Quality and Hazardous Gas Detection

    Indoor air contaminants come in a variety of forms and originate from multiple sources. Interactions between building materials and furnishings, activities and equipment inside the building, internal temperature and relative humidity, filtration and ventilation system operations, climate and building occupants all contribute to the indoor air quality (IAQ) in commercial, industrial, residential ...
