  • NORMs contamination treatment using Ivey-sol technology

    NORMs (naturally occurring radioactive materials) are found almost everywhere, and many natural materials, such as the earth’s crust, contain such radioactive materials. So what happens when oil and gas activities such as petroleum refining and natural gas extraction, disturb such radioactive material? They can alter the natural background radiation — the radiation that we are ...

  • Advanced Condition Assessments: The benefits of using Pipe Penetrating Radar

    Abstract: Pipe Penetrating Radar (PPR) is the underground in-pipe application of GPR, a non-destructive testing method that can detect defects and cavities within and outside mainline diameter (>18 in/450 mm) nonmetallic (reinforced concrete, vitrified clay, PVC, HDPE, etc.) underground pipes. The key advantage of PPR is the unique ability to map pipe wall thickness and deterioration including ...

  • City of tarpon springs assesses critical ductile iron force main

    Across the United States, there are many thousands of water and wastewater utilities that serve populations less than 50,000. Although the majority of attention surrounding aging infrastructure focuses on the challenges of large utilities, these small utilities are often faced with greater challenges. Smaller utilities often have fewer resources – both financial and personnel – ...

  • ALBANISA Oil Spill Equipment Setup - Case Study

    As a part of the Bolivarian Alliance for the People of Our America (acronym in Spanish: ALBA), Nicaragua has received funds to build a new oil hub in the Caribbean.
