  • Boiler Dissolved Oxygen Control

    DISSOLVED OXYGEN CHEMISTRY Dissolved Oxygen (DO) is a measure of the amount of oxygen, usually thought of as a gas, that is dissolved in a liquid such as water. Oxygen is essential to life and is also the most common element found taking part in corrosion reactions. DO can be thought of as the fuel needed for the corrosion process to proceed. It is the corrosion reactions that necessitate ...

  • Measuring oxygen levels in offshore extracted natural gas - Case Study

    Teekay use the EC92DIS portable oxygen analyser on board the Voyageur to measure the oxygen levels in the gas. In March 2013, one of Teekay's largest projects, the Voyageur Spirit FPSO achieved the first oil extraction on the Huntington field in the United Kingdom. The production unit was installed for its new charter contract with E.ON Ruhrgas UK E&P (E.ON) and is expected to last for ...

  • PureAire Combines Oxygen and CO2 Sensors to provide a Dual Gas Monitor to the Marketplace

    As a recognized leader in O2 safety monitoring, PureAire recently explored the need for an O2 monitor where carbon dioxide is used. There are four key cryogenic gases; nitrogen, helium, argon, and carbon dioxide (CO2), which can create an oxygen deficient atmosphere. Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) covering cryogenic gases cite that a cryogenic leak can create an unsafe ...

  • Several waste gas streams: Highly contaminated oxygen-free waste gas, and medium waste gas stream - Case Study

    Example: Chemical industry Similar tasks: Petrochemical and pharmaceutical industries A producer of synthetic rubber creates a medium waste gas as well as a highly contaminated oxygen-free waste gas which contains primarily low hydrocarbons. The main waste gas stream is purified in a regenerative thermal oxidiser (RTO), while the oxygen-free waste gas passes through ...

  • Oxygen Monitor for FOUPs in Semiconductors and Cleanrooms

    Over time, the contamination control requirements in the semiconductor industry have become more stringent. Employees now must spend more time adhering to cleaning protocols to preserve the sanitary nature of the environment and comply with regulations. The front-end unified pod (or FOUP) began appearing in semiconductors in the 1990s, serving as a transportation box to safely and ...

  • Lucent Technologies low level oxygen removal

    The increasing complexity and level of intergration in ULSI devices is requiring higher levels of water purity.  A typical wafer uses between 20 to 200 separate rinsing steps.  Impurities in the rinse water such as particles, high dissolved oxygen content, organic contaminants and gas bubbles can cause defects.  Controlling oxide formation on the wafer surface is one of the reasons for reducing ...

  • Oxygen-separation membranes could aid in CO2 reduction
