  • Fluid waste management and disposal practices

    Prior to the early 80s and the introduction of AIDS into our society, infection control practices were designed almost exclusively to protect the patient from developing a nosocomial infection an infection acquired after admission to the hospital. Protocols were focused on protecting the patient, with little or no emphasis on the health care workers potential to become infected. Hepatitis B has ...

  • Water mixing in waste lagoons

    Man-made lagoons have been used worldwide for the treatment of domestic and industrial wastewater, it seems, forever. All waste lagoons were first designed and thoughtfully planned considering their locations, soil makeup, and waste reduction processes prior to being implemented. The biological process of organic waste reduction is always a consideration of waste lagoon designs. There are three ...

  • Airport De-Icing Operations and Waste Water - Case Study

    De-icing of aircrafts and airfield pavement is important to ensure the safety of passengers and cargo operators. These operations can have negative environmental impacts, due to the presence of ethylene glycol and propylene glycol, which contribute to high levels of BOD in surface water.  Regulations are in place to ensure that waste from de-icing operations are properly collected and ...

  • Hydraulic conductivity of compacted clay liners permeated with inorganic salt solutions

    Due to their low permeability, geosynthetic clay liners (GCLs) and compacted clay liners (CCLs) are the main materials used in waste disposal landfills. The hydraulic conductivity of GCLs and CCLs is closely related to the chemistry of the permeant fluid. In this study, the effect on the hydraulic conductivity of clays of five different inorganic salt solutions as permeant fluid was ...

  • Application notes - viscosity measurement

    Most laboratory viscometers employ the well-known principle of rotational viscometers to measure viscosity by sensing the torque required to rotate a spindle at a constant speed while it is immersed in the sample fluid. This is because the torque, generally measured using the reaction torque on the motor, is proportional to the viscous drag on the immersed spindle and thus the viscosity of the ...

  • Soil Flushing

    Introduction In situ soil flushing is the extraction of contaminants from the soil with water or other suitable aqueous solutions. Soil flushing is accomplished by passing the extraction fluid through in-place soils using an injection or infiltration process. Extraction fluids must be recovered from the underlying aquifer and, when possible, they are recycled. Cosolvent Enhancement Cosolvent ...

  • Hydrocarbon in Water Monitors using Fluorescence

    Hydrocarbon in Water Monitors using Fluorescence are capable of detecting hydrocarbons as low as 5 Parts per Billion and as high as 10,000 Parts per Million depending on the application.  Because only the target hydrocarbons will fluoresce, these monitors have no significant affect due to water turbidity (rust, dirt, gas bubbles, soot, etc.).  Fluorescence monitors provide a measurement ...

  • REX Evaluation Guide

    REXTM (Real-timeElementalX-ray Fluorescence System) is the only instrument capable of unattended real-time elemental analysis of dissolved metallic contents in fluids using X-ray fluorescence with low parts-per-billion (ppb) sensitivity. Important applications exist for the following industries, among others: Municipal drinking water supply Chemical processing industry Mining ...

  • Portable oil analysis solutions empower ship maintainers to act fast in preventing failure - Case study

    Marine operators have known why oil analysis is a critical part of a good maintenance program for quite some time, and they practice it with combinations of onboard test kits and shoreside analysis laboratories commonly provided by the lubricant supplier. Slow steaming, long component lead times, constant switchovers from HFO to lowsulfur fuel, and high and low BN lubricants means having an ...

  • Amino acid analysis matrix independent analysis of free amino acids

    Pickering Laboratories specializes in manufacturing of cationexchange columns and eluants for amino acid analysis. No other techniques have been shown to match the reproducibility and sensitivity of this post-column methodology. Advantages of this method, such as absence of matrix interferences, are especially important in analysis of native samples. Pickering provides several options for the ...

  • Open Burn/Open Detonation

    Introduction: Open burn (OB) and open detonation (OD) operations are conducted to destroy excess, obsolete, or unserviceable (EOU) munitions and energetic materials. In OB operations, energetics or munitions are destroyed by self-sustained combustion, which is ignited by an external source, such as flame, heat, or a detonation wave. In this case, an auxilliary fuel may be added to initiate and ...

  • Closed vessel or open channel UV disinfection systems

    Ultra violet disinfection is now a standard feature in most waste water disinfection systems. UV has also been adopted by the drinking water community, as a barrier against the chlorine tolerant species such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia. The technology is widely favored due to its non- chemical nature, the fact that no subsequent de-chlorination process is required, and its ability to be ...

  • Tapping the potential of codigestion

    Codigestion refers to processing multiple biodegradable substrates (feedstocks) in an anaerobic digestion (AD) system. A more contemporary definition refers to the digestion of a combination of select biodegradable feedstocks with a base substrate that an AD system was designed to handle. The intent is to maximize the production of biogas (i.e., renewable energy) by adding substrates that produce ...

  • Chlorine removal with KDF 55 - Case Study

    KDF 55 Process Medium Helps with Removing Chlorine in a Municipal Water Treatment Facility A Los Angeles-based maker of fashion jeans uses KDF media instead of chemicals for removing chlorine when treating municipal water in their stone-washing process. High-purity copper-zinc redox water filter media consistently provides 99% of free chlorine removal from water by ...

  • Health alert over fracking’s chemical cocktails

    Fracking is once again in trouble. Scientists have found that what gets pumped into hydrocarbon-rich rock as part of the hydraulic fracture technique to release gas and oil trapped in underground reservoirs may not be entirely healthy. Environmental engineer William Stringfellow and colleagues at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the University of the Pacific told ...
