  • Ozone in the Laundry Industry - Practical Experiences in the United Kingdom

    Abstract Since the early 1990s, the use of ozone in many commercial and industrial laundering applications has been evolving rapidly. Ozone allows washing to be conducted using cold water, thereby saving considerable heat energy and water consumption. Additionally, ozone enhances the wash process, resulting in a significant reduction in detergent dosage and number of rinses, thus saving ...

  • Productivity at the Commercial (or pay per test) Laboratory - White Paper

    Commercial environmental laboratories practice “applied analytical chemistry” by analyzing samples using a list of potential contaminants to determine how much, if any, of the pollutants are there. The data collected may be used by the laboratory’s client to, among other reasons, satisfy a regulatory permit, or for routine monitoring as required by a regulatory agency, such as ...

  • Experimental comparison of canal models for control purposes using simulation and laboratory experiments

    Considerable amounts of water can be saved by automating irrigation canals. The design of most of the practical automatic controllers rely on a simplified model of the irrigation canal. This model can be obtained from measured data (identification) or can be formulated (white box models) assuming simplifications in the physical concepts and using the canal geometry. Several models of this kind ...
