  • CPSC lead in products testing

    Recent changes to the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s (CPSC) program on allowable levels of lead in products have prompted new rounds of testing. As a Manufacturer (or if you are anywhere in the Supply Chain for any product sold in the United States), you are responsible for monitoring and reporting the lead content in your product. There are threshold values of allowable lead in products as ...

  • LEAD-BASED PAINT TESTING

    Abatement Project Management  ACC controls all factors of lead-based colour abatement tasks on our customer's part. The ACC venture manger screens the contractor’s actions to make sure conformity with OSHA rules.

  • City Of North Bay Uses Condition Assessment On Critical Force Main To Implement Asset Management Plan

    On one hand, it may seem like a waste of capital dollars if you perform a pipeline condition assessment and the final analysis turns up no leaks. Alternatively, you can also look at the no-leak report as a good news validation story, especially when using the information to help establish an asset management ...

  • New Field Test for Lead (Pb2+) in Soil

    Field tests for the detection of lead in soil are not frequently accepted, since the tests are rather cumbersome or not reliable for screening determinations. Recently, we developed the LEADQuick field test kit for the detection of lead in water with 3 #22;g/L sensitivity. This test is further modifiedto detect lead in soil with a sensitivity 0.03 #22;g. We developed an extraction protocol using ...

  • Comparison of Self-Primers: A customer lead field test

    I call on numerous accounts weekly. A question that often arises is “Which pump is best?” While this certainly varies from application to application, I tend to like to see performance to make that determination. My experience in college football and 15 years of professional wrestling taught me that ‘talk is cheap’ and that true winners will shine in a competition. Last ...

  • Bioaccessibility tests accurately estimate bioavailability of lead to quail

    Hazards of soil‐borne Pb to wild birds may be more accurately quantified if the bioavailability of that Pb is known. To better understand the bioavailability of Pb to birds, we measured blood Pb concentrations in Japanese quail (Coturnix japonica) fed diets containing Pb‐contaminated soils. Relative bioavailabilities were expressed by comparison with blood Pb concentrations in quail fed a Pb ...

  • Minneapolis Offers Free Soil Testing to Raise Public Awareness of Lead Hazards

    In 1998, the City of Minneapolis designed and implemented an innovative public outreach program to provide free access to soil testing for lead content to all Minneapolis residents. Soil testing kits were made available through local hardware stores, gardening centers and community groups. Citizens could either bring in samples to local merchants where city employees performed on-the-spot ...

  • Getting the lead out — at the faucet

    You might be surprised at where you’ll find a customer’s lead. Lead is making headlines. First, we should note that the current attention is not due to water, air or soil contamination, but from lead contamination recently found in toys and children’s jewelry made in China. This is very frightening for any parent because of the harm lead can to cause in children. How could this happen? How ...

  • Lead in Christmas Lights

    A recent California proposition led to awareness that lead is a stabilizer in the Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) jacketing that covers conductors in Christmas lights. The objective of this study is to examine the level of accessible lead in Christmas lights. Following U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) Lead Inspectors’ procedures, researchers at Cornell University and in Nebraska conducted ...

  • Removal of Lead from Gasoline

    On 12th March 1997, the European Commission adopted a proposal from the Environment Commissioner Ritt Bjerregaard on a European Union strategy to combat acidification. The strategy will, by 2010, reduce significantly the extent of the areas in the European Union where the tolerance of sensitive ecosystems to acidity is exceeded. Main elements of the strategy include establishment of national ...

  • Lead in the environment and in drinking water

    Everywhere you look metal lead is in the headlines. The majority of the recent press attention however, has not focused in lead in contaminated water, air, or soil but rather on high concentrations of lead found in toys and children?s jewelry that have been produced in developing countries where lax standards apply. Regardless of the particular source of lead contamination, the fact is lead can ...

  • An assessment of lead leachability from lead-glazed ceramic cooking vessels

    Since the early 1990s, numerous studies in Mexico have demonstrated an association between the use of lead-glazed ceramic cooking ware (LGC) and elevated blood lead levels. We sought to determine whether ceramic ware collected from the Hispanic community in Oklahoma City contained lead and to quantify the amount of lead that leached into foods cooked in those vessels. Lab results were combined ...

  • Engine Testing

    Engine testing involves measurement of rotating speed and torque of the engine by applying load controlled by a dynamometer connected to its output shaft. HORIBA has developed various types of dynamometer for the purpose of engine testing. They are mainly classified into two types; one is absorbing only dynamometer such as hydraulic dynamometers and eddy-current dynamometers, the other is ...

  • Lead Paint: The EPA’s New Rule

    The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Lead: Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule, issued in 2008, was to take formal (enforceable) effect on April 22, 2010. However, due to difficulties with compliance, the EPA has extended this deadline to December 30, 2010. This rule mandates a number of specific practices for contractors to mitigate the health hazards associated with disturbance ...


  • Toxicity of sediments from lead‐zinc mining areas to juvenile freshwater mussels (Lampsilis siliquoidea), compared to standard test organisms

    Sediment toxicity tests compared chronic effects on survival, growth, and biomass of juvenile freshwater mussels (28‐d exposures with Lampsilis siliquoidea) to responses of standard test organisms, amphipods (28‐d exposures with Hyalella azteca) and midges (10‐d exposures with Chironomus dilutus), in sediments from two lead‐zinc mining areas: Tri‐State mining district and Southeast Missouri ...
