  • Using Electromagnetic induction to characterize soils - Case Study

    Electrical conductivity measurements have been used for years to determine salinity and moisture in soils. Probes were inserted directly into the soil to determine how well the soil conducted an applied current. This process was slow and labor-intensive and was usually reserved for scientific studies. A more recent technique for measuring conductivity is electromagnetic induction (EM), a ...

  • What is a Spectrometer?

    The characteristics of a white LED light differs greatly, when compared to a yellow CFL. Without any special tools, one can see that the LED emits a clear white color, while the CFL generates yellow light. Going one step further, using a spectrometer, one will be able to “dissect” the light sources and see that they are composed of other colors in the visible light spectrum, such as ...

  • Locate abandoned production abandoned well case study

    Clearwater, Florida Historical records discovered during construction of a commerical building indicated that a deep well with steel casing was likely present within a portion of the project site. Regulatory officials halted construction and insisted that the presence (or absence) of the well be confirmed. If the well was present, it was required that the well be exposed so that it could ...

  • Heat treatment of steels and other metals case study

    Application Moisture is measured in the blanketing gases that are used in the treatment of steel. Problem Inert blanketing gases are required during the heat treatment of steels to prevent oxidation of the metal product. At heat-treating temperatures, moisture and oxygen will readily react with the metal to form an undesirable metal-oxide coating on the ...

  • Metal finishing - Columbia manufacturing company - case study

    Application Columbia Manufacturing Company of Westfield, Massachusetts began producing bicycles in 1877. The company, while still producing bicycles, transitioned its core product line to institutional furniture with chrome plated bases made from tubular steel. Large amounts of potable water were required for the old plating system. The company was using 180,000 gallons of potable water a ...


  • Waste Gas in Metal Recycling: Hydrocarbons and carbon monoxide - Case Study

    Example: Aluminium recycling Similar tasks: Recycling of copper, lead, cink The waste gas in metal recycling usually contains particles (abraded metal, mineral dust), inorganic, acid substances (HF, HCI, SOx) and dioxins (PCDD/F) as well as a whole range of organic substances (unburned hydrocarbons) and carbon monoxide. Particularly, in the group of unburned ...

  • Heavy Metal Compliance per RoHS Directive - Case Study

    Background Compliance with RoHS (or the Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive) is an important issue in manufacturing today. RoHS has been constantly evolving since its original adoption in the EU as RoHS 2002/95/EC in 2003. Its full name is “Directive on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment.” As the ...

  • Platinum group metal recovery from spent catalysts - Case Study

    The Challenge Catalyst wastes, including automotive catalytic converters and industrial catalysts, contain Precious Metals and specifically Platinum Group Metals (PGMs), which are valuable as a result of their low natural abundance, unique properties as well as the complex and costly processes that are required for their extraction and refining from primary sources. Furuya Metal Co. Ltd., ...

  • Metals: Scrubber System Removes HCL from Exhaust Case Study

    Although Indiana’s environmental protection agency has not yet added hydrochloric acid (HCl) standards to its Title 5 regulation of emissions sources, Allomatic Products Co., Sullivan, IN, was determined to erase HCI vapors from its plant discharge. In the mixed industrial/ residential neighborhood where its manufacturing plant is located, Allomatic wanted to be known as a good neighbor. ...

  • Titanium Scrap Metal Processing

    Background A world-class processor of titanium scrap had a wash system whose cleaning solution was becoming contaminated with both free floating unemulsified tramp oil and emulsified water soluble oil that was being washed off of titanium turnings. As the level of oil contamination increased over time in the wash solution, cleaning effectiveness diminished. The processor uses a metric, ...

  • Field demonstration of a near-real-time multi-metals ambient fence line monitor case study

    National emissions standards for hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) are required under Section 112 of the Clean Air Act to limit the release of specified HAPs. Permitting, monitoring and enforcement of these emission limits are an integral part of managing air quality to protect human health and the environment. However, this is difficult and highly uncertain in the case of fugitive emissions ...
