  • Mercury spill control procedures - industrial hygiene news

    Mercury is a known neurotoxin that is extremely toxic even in small amounts. It directly affects the central nervous and renal systems, causing developmental delays, motor and brain problems like those associated with autism. Mercury’s hidden danger also lies in when at room temperature, when exposed it vaporizes readily. Once it has become an aerosol, it is absorbed into the lungs and ...

  • Mercury Spill Control Procedures

    Mercury is a dangerous neurotoxin that can have damaging affects on both the central nervous system and renal system of humans. Exposure to mercury can cause serious developmental delays in children, and high level exposure is life threatening. When exposed to air, mercury vaporizes, readily becoming a dangerous aerosol that can be absorbed into the lungs and spread throughout the body. This is ...

  • Putting infection control into practice in the workplace

    Healthcare workers are, like patients, subject to illness from a variety of airborne pathogens common to hospital settings. This risk increases during construction and renovation, as these endeavors release dust as well as disease-inducing microbes into the surrounding environment. Since more than one in five workplace illnesses in private industry occur in a hospital setting , hospitals ...

  • Controlling Bacteria In a Clean Room Environment

    Maintaining the integrity of a cleanroom is a constant battle. The first step to deciding which method, or combination of methods, to employ is to identify the prime sources of contamination. There are three prime sources of contamination through which the integrity of a cleanroom might be breached. First, there is the human element. While many processes might be automated, many situations remain ...

  • Intellisenc Building Air Quality Controllers control CO2, CO, VOC, O3, Humidity and temerpature.

    The quality of the air we breathe indoor (Indoor Air Quality, IAQ) is typically defined by the air chemical or gas composition and particulates. The sensors available today for sensing the gas composition of IAQ have many features and options. There is a wide application base for IAQ sensing with the most common being the regulation of HVAC ventilation systems for lower energy cost. Using an IAQ ...


  • The QUADRANT SR Series Thermal Oxidizer and the textiles industry

    A synthetic leather manufacturer worked with Catalytic Products International, Inc. to design a unique Thermal (recuperative) Oxidizer. A recuperative thermal oxidizer was chosen because of high solvent LEL (+25%) exhausted from the process and a desire to integrate a hot oil recovery system to work with the oil heated production coating/curing line. After careful examination of the process ...
