  • Affinity–based biosensors for heavy metal detection

    In recent years, there has been a pressing need for fast and reliable methods for environmental monitoring. Among the various pollutants, the heavy metals are some of the most harmful because these substances are non–biodegradable and retained by the ecological system. Conventional analytical techniques for heavy metals imply high cost, trained personnel and the repute that they are mostly ...

  • Understanding Challenging Applications for Improved Metal Detection

    In the food industry, certain products can act like metal contaminants, a phenomenon known as ‘product effect.’ This is where the type of product being inspected can hinder the ability of inspection technology to correctly identify metal. At best this can lead to unacceptable false reject levels, at worst it can result in metal contaminated product leaving the production facility. ...

  • Fixed Versus Portable Gas Detection – Which Is Better?

    Did you know that workers are needlessly injured every year as a result of leaking toxic or combustible substances? Such incidents are known to involve a wide range of hazardous gases (including ammonia, carbon monoxide, chlorine, hydrogen sulfide, hydrocarbon vapors and so on). The sad reality is that most of these accidents are avoidable if only the workplace is adequately monitored. This leads ...

  • REDWAVE Metal Days 2015 - Review

    The REDWAVE Metal Days, at BT-Wolfgang Binder in Gleisdorf, pro­vided the context for international experts from various sectors of the metal and aluminium recycling in­dustry to exchange information on markets, technologies and practical experience. In addition, the new REDWAVE XRF-M sorting system, for recycling in the metals sector, was presented to the participants. ...

  • Developing Technologies to Detect Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) Gas

    Abstract Hydrogen sulfi de (H2S) gas can cause nausea, headaches, unconsciousness, and death. Industries struggle to detect this deadly substance before it harms workers or communities. Safety system manufacturers have developed detectors that sense the H2S quickly and accurately. This paper illustrates, in general terms, considerations in effective placement of H2S detectors: ...

  • Oligonucleotide-based fluorescence system for sensitive and selective detection of Ag(I) ions in aqueous solution

    In this letter, a new homogeneous assay with high sensitivity and selectivity was developed for the detection of silver ions in aqueous media at room temperature by using EvaGreen (EG), polycytosine oligonucleotide C20 and single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs). The fluorescence of EG is weak in the absence or presence of randomly coiled C20. After C20 interacted specifically with Ag+ ions ...

  • Ferrous Wear Metal Measurement Made Easy with the FerroCheck

    Historically, one of the most cost-effective indicators of machinery health has been the analysis of ferrous debris in oil. Such analysis utilizes the ferromagnetic properties of generated debris to perform the analysis. Since nearly all wear debris contains ferrous material (in particular iron), an abnormal increase in the amount of debris can be directly correlated to abnormal machinery ...

  • Metals Determination in Biodiesel (B100) by ICP-OES with Microwave Assisted Acid Digestion

    Elemental composition of biodiesel is required for product quality control, auto-engine life, emissions control, and researching appropriate additives. We studied the use of microwave assisted acid digestion reaction system to prepare neat biodiesel (B100) samples in an aqueous medium for ICP-OES analyses. Biodiesel produced by a transesterification reaction was subjected to the test method for ...


  • The use of some industrial by products for adsorptive removal of heavy metals from wastewater

    Most available technologies applied in the removal of metal contaminants in aqueous systems use the well established processes of adsorption. Adsorbents currently in use are either too expensive or not readily available for wastewater treatment. There is a need to develop new adsorbents which are readily available at low cost to remove metal contaminants in aqueous system. In this work, Okra ...
