  • A Case for Point-of-Use RO Ultrapure Water Systems

    ULTRAPURE WATER CRITERIA - AN OVERVIEW 'Pure water' is a relative term. Practically speaking, no water, naturally occurring or treated by man, consists solely of H2O molecules. Forever in pursuit of achieving equilibrium with its surroundings, water has unique characteristics that result in its ability to dissolve most matter. This property of water to dissolve and transport materials is ...

  • Aeration and Mixing Bring Hussain Sagar Lake`s Ecosystem Back to Life

    Overview Hussain Sagar Lake in India faced an inflow of untreated waste and pollution causing decreasing DO levels and foul odors in the nearby community. An even more critical threat was eutrophication, or an excessive number of nutrients in the body of water, choking out the natural aquatic life. Given the lake is stagnate, circulation and the distribution of efficient aeration ...

  • Moderator shares how upcoming conference will foster development of new technologies in fractured rock

  • Why evaluate hydraulic fluid compatibility?

    When introducing a new control fluid to hydraulic systems, it is important to ensure that the new liquid or mixture is of equal or superior quality to the previous fluid. If the new mixture is incompatible, precipitate may form and result in an overall inferior fluid. This can speed up clogging or damage the system. When a manufacturer of construction machinery releases a new line of bulldozers ...
