  • Real Time TOC Analysis in Steam and Condensate

    Executive Summary Steam in petro/chemical plants could be contaminated with hydrocarbons (TOC = Total Organic Carbons) from various sources. In any case this is a sign for defects in the process, whether it they occur in the heat exchanger, the blow down vessel, the condensate recovery or other parts of the system. Conventional solutions to monitor such contaminations use TOC- ...

  • Online Process Analyzer Installed at F.J. Horgan WTP to Monitor Chloramination

    Construction was completed on the City of Toronto's F.J. Hor-gan Water Treatment Plant in 1979, more than 60 years after chloramine had first been used to disinfect drinking water in an Ottawa plant. By then there was little debate about the benefits of chloramination and it was incorporated into the new plant's design as part of the disinfection process. Chloramine is more stable than free ...

  • Application of combustion analyzers in safety instrumented systems

    The combustion process has always been considered having the potential for a hazardous event which could lead to personnel injury or loss of production. To mitigate this risk, the process industry is now implementing Safety Instrumented Systems which can identify hazardous operating conditions and correctly respond in such a way to bring the combustion process back to a safe operating condition ...

  • Analyzing Risk in Wastewater Process Design: Using Monte Carlo Simulation to Move Beyond Conventional Design Methods

    Because there are many variables and uncertainties that can affect the performance of wastewater processes, conventional design methods, which analyze uncertainties in relative isolation, do not always provide an adequate analysis of the risks in a design, including their probability and sensitivity to other variables. A more robust risk analysis method for complex systems is modeling using a ...

  • Assessing performance of on-line nitrate analyzers

    Traditionally, activated sludge processes were designed to remove organics and suspended solids from wastewater. The justification for including nitrogen control in wastewater treatment facilities began with the need to protect receiving waters from the increasing problem of eutrophication and hypoxia (low levels of dissolved oxygen in bottom waters, generally less than 2 mg/l). One of the ...

  • Effects of mixing on chloramination process

    According to a recent study more than 90 percent of water treatment plants utilizing chloramination for distribution system residuals indicate a certain level of dissatisfaction toward the process performance. One factor that may lead to such dissatisfaction is the inadequacy of mixing when ammonia is added to chlorinated water. If mixing is not instantaneous and uniform, the actual chlorine to ...

  • Analyzing sulfur in soil and sediment with handheld XRF

    Background Sulfur creates more than nasty odors. Exposure to low levels (0-10ppm) of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) causes irritation of eyes, nose, and throat; higher levels can cause headaches, dizziness, nausea and vomiting, coughing, and breathing difficulty. H2S and numerous other odor-causing compounds are generated as a result of organic material decomposition. In the case of the Muddy River in ...
