  • 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 ...

  • Pioneer 3D simulation of volcanic eruption

    On 30 September 2007, between 11:30 and 12:00 UTC (14:30 and 15:00 local time), Jebel al-Tair, a small volcanic island in the Red Sea erupted for the first time since 1883. The western part of the island suffered a collapse following the eruption and lava flows and fire fountains were observed. 3 military personnel lost their lives. Satellite imagery showed just a small plume of ash, indicating ...

  • Triaxial permeability testing and microstructure study of hard–to–drain coal from Sydney Basin, Australia

    Several mines operating in the Bulli seam of the Sydney Basin, Australia have coal seam zones that are difficult to drain. Metropolitan Colliery being one of such mines, has experienced difficulties in reducing gas content within the available drainage lead time; as the coal seam would not drain even with additional drainage boreholes. A research study using coal permeability testing and ...

  • The Elimination of Ethylene in Domestic Refrigerators

    Ethylene is a plant hormone produced naturally by fruit and other plant tissues. It is known as the ripening hormone because it regulates the series of processes associated with the ripening and senescence of fruit. Eliminating ethylene from the environment, both in storage chambers and transport containers, where it is stored in the form of gas, is a widespread practice designed to provide a ...

  • The Power of the Moon

    The influence the moon has on life on earth is disputed. However, during an assignment in Southeast Asia, vibration experts from Sulzer were able to clearly confirm that the moon can even affect pumps. With its broad expertise, the Sulzer team was able to solve an unusual case of vibration. Southeast Asia is a key exporter of LNG (liquefied natural gas) to global markets, and it is ...
