  • Selecting and Placing Gas Detectors for Maximum Application Protection

    Many industrial processes involve dangerous gases and vapors: flammable, toxic, or both. With the different sensing technologies available, and the wide range of industrial applications that exist, selecting the best sensor and locating them properly for the job at hand can be a challenge. To ensure a high level of safety, know the latest sensing technologies, which technology is best for the ...

  • The Pitfalls of Process TOC analysis and how to avoid them case study

    Since the introduction of Total Organic Carbon (TOC) Analyzers by Dow, Union Carbide and Automated Environmental Systems in thel960,s,l-5\ they have proven to be an invaluable tool in the environmental and process monitoring fields. While technologies have advanced since then, certain performance characteristics required for true process control have been notably absent. The purpose of this paper ...

  • Support to Aviation Control Service (SACS): an online service for near-real-time satellite monitoring of volcanic plumes

    Volcanic eruptions emit plumes of ash and gases into the atmosphere, potentially at very high altitudes. Ash-rich plumes are hazardous for airplanes as ash is very abrasive and easily melts inside their engines. With more than 50 active volcanoes per year and the ever-increasing number of commercial flights, the safety of airplanes is a real concern. Satellite measurements are ideal for ...

  • Bioaccumulation and toxicity of single walled carbon nanotubles (SWNT) to benthic organisms at the base of the marine food chain

    As the use of single‐walled carbon nanotubes (SWNT) increases over time, so does the potential for environmental release. Our research aimed to determine the toxicity, bioavailability and bioaccumulation of SWNT in marine benthic organisms at the base of the food chain. The toxicity of SWNT was tested in a whole sediment exposure with the amphipod Ampelisca abdita and the mysid Americamysis ...

  • Preparation of cationic starch microspheres and study on their absorption to anionic-type substance

    Cationic starch microspheres (CSMs) were prepared from lab-made neutral starch-based microspheres using a cationic adsorbent, namely 3-chloro-2-hydroxypropyltrimethyl ammonium chloride, as the cationic etherifying agent. Detection by scanning electron microscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), and laser diffraction techniques revealed that CSMs had coarse surfaces with good ...

  • Characterisation of RO fouling in an integrated MBR/RO system for wastewater reuse

    Membrane filtration has gradually gained acceptance as the preferred pre-treatment for reverse osmosis (RO). In this paper, an integrated membrane bioreactor (MBR)/RO system for wastewater reuse treating real sewage water has been evaluated and the RO fouling has been characterised. The MBR achieved low values of organic matter, total nitrogen, PO43−, total organic carbon, ...

  • Gas Monitoring for Ventilation Control and Energy Management

    The growing demand for underground and enclosed parking and maintenance garages (resulting from limitations on land availability) has increased the awareness and need for proper ventilation and control systems. In addition, increased health and safety programs have only added to the concerns of toxic and combustible gases in confined or enclosed spaces. Historically, ventilation and make-up air ...
