  • Determining flammability of SpillFix Universal Organic Absorbent

    SpillFix Universal Organic Absorbent is an industrial absorbent product made from natural coir (coconut husk). Flammability tests (as detailed below) have determined that the product is a Not Readily Combustible Solid, and is unlikely to catch fire even after absorbing flammable spills. Determining Flammability The tests for determining ...

  • Sea For Life developing wave energy absorber

    Sea For Life in Obidos, Portugal, is developing a Wave Energy Gravitational Absorber (WEGA) to extract energy from ocean waves.   Since its origin, Sea For Life has been dedicated to wave energy converters model conception, calculations and project design for construction and laboratory testing of prototypes, having been tested over 15 different models under an electricity production ...

  • Seaswarm to Clear out Oil

    When an oil spill occurs, the challenge is clearing out of the oil fast and secure. Seaswarm is a possible solution to this dilemma. Robotic cleaning instruments absorb the oil and move independently and autonomously. They can communicate between them and coordinate their actions. The supplier claims the job will be done efefctively. ...

  • Does Your Absorbent Product Help Address Fire Safety - “Stop, drop and roll!”

    Adults everywhere recognize this mantra from fire safety lessons they attended as children. When it comes to fire safety, people usually learn how to address a potential fire from a young age, including how to identify a ...

  • Monitoring Oil in Cooling Water

    The Situation A municipal power plant in the southern United States operates more than 10 stationary power plant engines capable of producing 52 megawatts of electric power. The plant is part of a larger statewide power grid system. Within the grid, the municipality brokers the purchase or sale of power hourly, based on the needs of municipality and the market rate for power on the grid ...

  • Hydraulic Oil Spill on Roadway

    Fuel Oil Soaked Wood. Contact was made to our office in May/2007 regarding the wood base underneath an oil/kerosene furnace system which, upon removal, it was discovered that kerosene had leaked and was somewhat permeated, leaving an odor. With over-time saturation of the wood, we recommended multiple treatments. After use of our Terracap 3000/4000 kit, we received the following in a letter: "I ...


  • On-site regeneration of transformer oil

    Regeneration of transformer oil at the transformer’s location is an important preventive measure of transformer servicing.   Transformer life time is, in essence, the life time of its insulation system. The most widely used insulation is liquid insulation (transformer oils) and solid insulation (paper, i.e. cellulose insulation). The oil provides for at ...

  • Comparing Oil in Water Analysis Methods

    Wilks Enterprise has published a new White Paper that discusses various oil in water methods and their correlation with regulatory methods. While the amount of oil in water is highly regulated -- it can also be a challenging measurement.  It is complicated by the fact that oil comes in many forms and the measurement is defined by the particular regulatory method.  When EPA 1664 is ...

  • Solvent-free oil-in-water analysis

    Non-ionic surfactants can homogenize oily, produced water samples, creating optically clear microemulsions that are ideal for fluorescence measurements [1]. The use of surfactants to reduce fouling and improve the performance of on-line, fluorescence-based, oil-in-water monitors has been reported previously [2,3]. This paper describes the use of surfactants to prepare discrete water samples ...

  • Oil Spill Technologies Heat Up

    The highly successful, widespread deployment of PyroBoom® fireboom for controlled burning in the Gulf represented a crowning achievement in a development journey spanning more than 30 years. The concept of burning spilled or leaked oil on the sea’s surface has been known for many years, offering an extremely effective way of reducing the spill by as much as 90 percent with minimal ...

  • Moisture in Oils: The Three-Headed Beast

    Abstract Moisture contamination in in-service lube oils is perhaps one of the most destructive forms of engine corrosion second only to particle contamination.  Water contamination in oil can be categorized into three forms of water; Free, emulsified, and dissolved.  All forms of water have direct consequences to the oil and gears of the engine, but indirect consequences as ...

  • Oil Spill Eater, Solution Oil Spillage in Niger Delta

    Oil Spill Eater II is the name of a non-toxic product which provides the means for moving oil spill response out of its 19th Century methodology into the realm of advanced technological 21st Century breakthroughs for addressing and remediating 100% of any spill in any environment.  In comparison, current response methods employed by three major oil companies - BP, Exxon and Shell - are ...

  • Low natural terrestrial radioactivity in oil–derived lubricants

    Oil and gas production processing operations have been known to involve naturally occurring radioactive materials that lead to internal and external radiation hazards and thus a significant radiation dose to the workers. In this work, samples of nine oil lubricants used on a daily basis were collected from local suppliers in Egypt and analysed to determine their natural radioactivity. The ...

  • Matching oil in water analyses with regulatory methods

    While the amount of oil in water is highly regulated, it can also be a challenging measurement. It is complicated by the fact that oil conies in many forms and the measurement is defined by the particular regulatory method. When EPA 1664 is the regulatory method, the "oil" is anything that is extracted into hexane and remains after the hcxanc has been evaporated and appears as weight. In regions ...

  • Rapid on-site analysis of fats, oil and grease (FOG)

    It is estimated that 23-28% of Sanitary Sewer Overflows (SSOs) are due to Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG) or as much as 19 million gallons from 1998 to 2001 (State of North Carolina, 2004). Our increasingly mobile society has led to a decrease of cooking at home and a significant growth in the commercial food sector. This, on top of other industries such as metal processors, meat packers, cosmetic ...

  • Solvent choices for infrared testing of oil and grease in water

    Water is a very strong absorber in the mi d infrared (I R) regio n where o il is measured. We see the effect of infrared absorbance when a cold bucket of water left in the sun is quite warm by afternoon due to the absorption of infrared energy as heat. When measuring part per million (ppm) oil levels with mid IR, the water absorbs so much of the infrared energy that the signal becomes saturated ...
