  • Reduced Emissions for Landfill Gas Installations

    The use of landfill gas as a source of renewable energy is increasing. For environmental and safety reasons, the owners of the waste storage sites have to strictly monitor and control the construction, operations, and emissions generated. Sulzer offers solutions to control these emissions within the limits given by the government. Landfill gas is similar to natural gas, but it is created by ...

  • Gas Safety in Confined Spaces

    Introduction An offshore worker ensures a vessel is safe to enter; a plant manager enters a small plant room; a contractor inspects the lining of a sewage pipe.  All these personnel face common dangers, despite working in widely different industries.  Gas-related injury poses a serious threat in any confined space where the free movement of air is limited. A confined space ...

  • Compressed Gas Safety Guide

    Use and storage of any compressed gas under high pressure can be extremely dangerous if proper gas handling procedures are not observed. Moreover, chemical characteristics of specialty gases themselves can pose serious health hazards if containment is not tightly controlled. Paying close attention to a compressed gas product’s technical and safety information is invaluable for maintaining a safe, ...

  • Gas safety in confined spaces

    A confined space is any space large enough for someone to enter and perform assigned work, which has limited means of entry or exit, and which is not designed for continuous worker occupancy. This covers just about every industry, including utilities, construction, hydrocarbon exploration and processing, petrochemicals, marine, agriculture, food processing and ...

  • Gas Detection Best Practices at Work

    Most work place accidents could be prevented with proper working gas detection equipment. Gas detection is a critical component for safety programs for any environment; it should be given the highest priority and attention to detail to avoid any accidents and unnecessary work place injuries or deaths. Here are some suggestions on how to keep your work environment safe: 1.   Read the gas ...

  • Case study - Pure oxygen injection pilot test

    Introduction: The Moccasin Bend WWTP uses pure oxygen produced by a cryogenic oxygen plant for activated sludge treatment of the influent waste stream, which consists of municipal and industrial wastes. The waste stream contains a high proportion of high strength industrial waste, which results in a typical COD loading of about 2000 mg/L, which is approximately four times the strength ...

  • Gas-Fired Electric Generating Station

    Critical Issue ERMC worked with an electric power generating utility – in this case, with a gas fired electric generating station. The facility employs approximately 150 individuals. This site required an update and audit of their Emergency Response Plan (ERP) and additional practical training to test the ERP. Solution As part of our work, ERMC audited ...

  • Importance of Air & Water Testing in Indoor Pools

    Have you ever wondered why your eyes hurt or why you have a cough after swimming at an indoor pool? We all assume that it’s from too much chlorine in the pool but that is false! If the pool staff doesn’t regularly test and monitor both the air and water indoors, the environment becomes very toxic and unsafe to everyone in the building. Water is an essential ingredient for all life as ...

  • An Overview of the F-Gas Regulation Proposals

    By now you should have an appreciation of F-Gas regulations and what it means to you. But in case you don’t, here’s a quick overview in relation to leak detection. Why have the F-Gas regulations come into force? Fluorinated greenhouse gases (F-Gases) are potent greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming and are sometimes referred to as High ...

  • Follow toxic gas standards for a smoother project

    Toxic gases, such as Hydrogen Sulfide and Sulfur Dioxide, can injure and kill quickly. Therefore, mitigation of these hazards must be fast and sure. The United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and other authorities take detection of these gases very seriously. The American National Standards Institute/ American Petroleum Institute (ANSI/API) and ISA industry standards ...

  • EPA mandates proper refrigerant gas recovery processes

    New EPA regulations require facilities that use air conditioning and refrigeration equipment to have a refrigerant recovery plan in place. The plan is needed to make sure that any harmful gases that might leak are captured. Refrigerant gases contain hydrochlorofluorocarbons, known to cause severe damage to the ozone layer and to promote global warming. A comprehensive plan is now in place to ...
