  • Dry cleaner investigation

    A BEACON Passive Soil-Gas (PSG) Survey was performed at a dry cleaner site in the southeastern United States to determine if Tetrachloroethene (PCE) contamination identified beneath the dry cleaner in a prior BEACON PSG Survey was migrating off site and, if so, in which direction it was moving. This survey involved 30 field samples collected in a grid pattern. Analytical results were provided to ...

  • Cleaning biofouled membranes early improves plant operation. Comparison of autopsy and cleaning results on a small BWRO and large SWRO

    Abstract It is a fact that all new reverse osmosis membranes start to foul as soon as they start operation. The only variable is the rate at which they foul. Most RO plants operate at a differential pressure (ΔP) of 1.5 - 3 bar. Cleaning usually occurs when the ΔP is 10-15% above the design specification. This paper explores the benefits of early identification of foulants ...

  • RO membrane cleaning past, present, future - innovations for improving RO plant operating efficiency

    Abstract This paper reviews current thinking on reverse osmosis (RO) membrane cleaning. It challenges preconceptions and describes novel approaches for the removal of foulants and scale deposits from membrane surfaces. Applying membrane cleaning early in the fouling process before deposits can become compressed is advocated. Waiting until membranes are so fouled that they have a drop ...

  • Ducted or Ductless Fume Hoods? Is this the real issue?

    Most laboratories will need some form of fume cabinet at some point. The type of cabinet is usually the starting point of the process, and the choice of either ductless or ducted cabinet is made. With the ever increasing need to save money and to be environmentally responsible there are other considerations that need to be explored before a decision can be reached. ...

  • POE sediment filtration — your first line of defense

    Around the country, our aging water delivery infrastructure is coated with sediment and scale from a century or more of buildup. Those same tuberculated pipes are constantly challenged by daily tie-ins, repairs, flow tests and fire hydrant use in most cities and towns. The result is that drinking water that left the municipal treatment plant at top quality arrives in users’ glasses — or in their ...

  • Clean your test sieves to maintain accurate results

    A standard process in analytical laboratories is sieve analysis, the practice of accessing the particle size distribution of a granular material. The trouble is, sieves prove quite the challenge to clean thoroughly enough to get all the contaminants out of the mesh. Every last grain stuck in the sieve must be removed to gain accurate analysis. A solution has been found in the use ...

  • Dangers of Chlorine

    Most of us have grown up with the idea that whiter whites (and brighter colors) mean cleaner clothes. We continue to use chlorine products with abandon to whiten and to disinfect. We write on white paper and bathe in and drink chlorinated water. After all, who wants bacteria-infested water? In our society, chlorine is ubiquitous-and so are its side effects. In fact, the long-term residual effects ...

  • Qualitative analysis and classification of surface water in Bukit Merah Reservoir in Malaysia

    An attempt was made to analyze and classify water quality at the Bukit Merah Reservoir (BMR) in Malaysia to determine the degree of pollution and ascertain the required treatment level before usage. Parameters determined included; pH, dissolved oxygen (DO), biochemical oxygen demand (BOD), chemical oxygen demand (COD), ammoniacal nitrogen (NH3-N), suspended solids (SS), total nitrogen (TN) and ...

  • Smart Infrastructure is Key for QA/QC

    Paperless, or more accurately integrated, labs enjoy streamlined operations with better data, while minimizing costs, validation and maintenance. Laboratories responsible for QA/QC are a sum of many parts, but no part is more important than data. Data is THE product, and the integrity of that data is more than critical to today’s pharmaceutical laboratories. So what happens when processes ...
