  • Monitoring of Hydrogen Sulfide in Industrial Processes

    Hydrogen sulfide, H2S, is a very poisonous, corrosive, and flammable gas. As such, it needs to be carefully monitored and controlled in industrial processes where it is generated or used. At relatively low concentrations, it has an odour of rotten eggs which effectively works as a warning, but at higher concentrations where it becomes acutely toxic and even lethal, it can no longer be smelled ...

  • Monitoring Air Makes Sense

    Did you know that air filters were originally put in air handling systems to protect the life of the equipment, not human life? And that it is not uncommon for air filters to get changed less frequently to save on maintenance costs? Monitoring input from sensors can tell operators when filters and media need changing. We have required food labels that list all ingredients. Why not electronic ...

  • Introduction to Fluorescence for Oil in Water Monitoring

    Fluorescence can be found in many applications throughout our day-to-day routines. Commercially, one of the most obvious uses is in fluorescent lighting. For this, fluorescence is used to emit light from a tube without the use of heat, unlike standard incandescent light bulbs that require a heated element. In this example, fluorescence also contributes to energy conservation efforts. At an ...

  • Decision making and technology selection in water (reuse) applications

    In recent years, a large number of developed countries have considered water reuse schemes as a mandated alternative water resource to tackle water scarcity. With increasing knowledge on and understanding of the merits of water reuse in developing communities, a number of planned water reuse schemes have also been established (Chen et al., 2012; Fatta-Kassinos et al., 2011a). The range of water ...

  • Water quality monitoring with hydrolab MS5

    Background The Škocjan caves are a unique natural phenomenon located in south western Slovenia and are preserved as the Škocjan Caves Park under UNESCO protection. One of the most famous network of underground caves in the world, they were formed by the flow of the Reka River as it bored tunnels through the region’s limestone geology. The river first disappears underground just outside the ...

  • Monitoring Water Resources Beyond Irrigation

    Over the past year, California’s governor has taken unprecedented action, requiring Californians to drastically cut potable urban water use. While the restrictions may seem harsh to some, it actually provides an opportunity for building managers and community association boards to implement an effective long-term water conservation program. And the result can be significant dollar savings. ...

  • Surfactant-assisted oil-in-water monitoring

    A variety of common surfactants have been used to reduce fouling and enhance the performance of fluorescence-based oil-in-water monitors. Among the most effective are the alcohol ethoxylates with HLB values close to 12. Examples are SurfonicTM L24-9 (Hunstman, USA, HLB 13) and TergitolTM 15-S-7 (HLB 12.1). These surfactants readily convert heterogeneous oil/water mixtures into homogeneous, ...

  • Scottish Water Flow Monitoring Contracts

    Scottish Water commissioned HL in 2007 to deliver two separate flow monitoring contracts to help improve the water companies understanding of the yield and low flow conditions at several water supply catchments across Scotland. One project involved the installation of reservoir level, inflow flow gauges and recording raingauge devices in nine reservoir catchments in South West Scotland. Although ...

  • Water quality for a laboratory monitored by AQUAVISTA™

  • Water Quality Monitoring for the “Big Four Parameters”

    Many different parameters can be measured in natural and artificial waters with sensors or via lab analysis. Each parameter effects water quality and the organisms that depend on the water for survival. Different states, monitoring agencies, and companies also place an emphasis on different water quality parameters to be monitored, depending on local conditions and mandates. For most water ...

  • Making adaptation count: Concepts and options for monitoring and evaluation of climate change adaptation

    Adaptation, Development, and Monitoring and Evaluation The impacts of climate change increasingly threaten the achievement of poverty reduction and other development objectives, including the 2015 Millennium Development Goals (MDG). Research suggests that impacts over the course of the 21st century, if unaddressed, could cause a 5–10 percent loss in global gross domestic product (GDP), with ...

  • Anglian Water selects Proam ammonia monitor

    Anglian Water (AWS) has selected the Proam ammonia monitor to provide continuous ammonia measurement on final effluent discharge where accurate and reliable measurement is required.

  • Water monitoring as a safety feature for nuclear desalination

    It is widely accepted that the general safety approach for nuclear facilities is valid for a Nuclear Desalination Plant (NDP), thus IAEA standards and guides are applicable. The coupling of a NDP should be designed with the safety objective of ensuring that it results in no adverse effect on the Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) safety. The first objective (provisions of barriers) is complied with by the ...
