  • Real-Time Membrane Fouling Monitoring

    The Port Hueneme Water Agency (PHWA) has been operating a municipal drinking water treatment plant designed to be a Brackish Water Reclamation Demonstration Facility. The facility consists of 3 separate side-by-side full scale systems or trains, each representing a major membrane separation process: nanofiltration (NF), reverse osmosis (RO) and electro dialysis reversal (EDR). Both the NF and RO ...

  • Real-time process dynamics monitoring in Anammox reactors

    Process dynamics in Anammox systems were evaluated through continuous monitoring of pH, oxidation reduction potential (ORP) and conductivity in two separate newly started-up sequencing batch reactors, one seeded with an enriched Anammox sludge and the other seeded with mixed activated sludge. The pH and ORP profiles exhibited characteristic patterns depending on the process dynamics during early ...

  • Real Time Measurments of Acetylene in Ethylene Manufacturing Process

    Keywords Tunable Diode Laser, Wavelength Modulation Spectroscopy, Analyzer, Acetylene, Ethylene, Acetylene Converter Abstract The analyzer, based on near infrared Tunable Diode Laser Absorption Spectroscopy (TDLAS), was developed for the measurement of acetylene in process streams. Measurements of acetylene were made as under laboratory conditions and in ...

  • Ferrous Wear Metal Measurement Made Easy with the FerroCheck

    Historically, one of the most cost-effective indicators of machinery health has been the analysis of ferrous debris in oil. Such analysis utilizes the ferromagnetic properties of generated debris to perform the analysis. Since nearly all wear debris contains ferrous material (in particular iron), an abnormal increase in the amount of debris can be directly correlated to abnormal machinery ...

  • AquaLab Analyzer provides real-time phosphorus measurement in Everglades

    When it comes to ecosystem sustainability, Florida is no backwater. The South Florida Water Management District, which includes the unique Everglades habitat, had a major challenge. The EPA and various governmental authorities have defined limits for many water quality parameters to support a water body’s designated use. Any physical, chemical or biological condition that threatens the designated ...

  • Innovative Technology Provides Real Time Flow Data Management in Indianapolis

    This paper presents the program developed by the City of Indianapolis for managing its sewer flow data and describes how it is making real-time information available to several groups that have a stake in the City’s environmental management programs. These groups include United Water, the contract operator for the City’s collection system and its two WWTPs, the Capitol Improvement Program ...

  • Field tracer experiments over nuclear sites for the validation of a Korean real-time atmospheric dispersion and dose assessment system (FADAS)

    A real-time atmospheric dispersion and dose assessment system (FADAS) has been developed. It has been used as a basic tool to monitor the atmospheric dispersion of released radioactive materials and radiological dose assessment to the national emergency preparedness system, CARE, since 1995. Tracer experiments have been conducted for the purpose of validating FADAS and analysing the environmental ...

  • Conducting The Phase I Assessment - Records Review

     This is the second in a series of five articles relating to conducting Phase I Environmental Site assessments. Each article attempts to give the reader a thorough understanding of a specific aspect of the Phase I process and Clayton’s commitment to meeting or exceeding the requirements of ASTM Standard E 1527 Standard Practice for Environmental Site Assessments: Phase I Environmental Site ...


  • Quality Assurance Guidance for Conducting Brownfields Site Assessments

    Executive Summary Many sites across the nation once used for industrial and commercial purposes are now abandoned or under-used. Some of these sites — often referred to as “Brownfields”— are contaminated; others are perceived or suspected to be contaminated. In 1993, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) created the Brownfields Economic Redevelopment Initiative to empower States, Tribes, ...

  • Underwater Bridge Inspections – Drones Conducting Remote Evaluations

    Deep Trekker Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV), or underwater drones, are establishing themselves as the ideal tool for underwater bridge inspections. It goes without saying that the structural integrity of a bridge is extremely important; after all, you’re only either walking, driving, or riding a train across it. With the public safety in mind and to continue the flow of traffic, these ...

  • 8 Steps for Conducting an EHS Culture Assessment

    Environment, health and safety (EHS) managers spend a significant amount of time developing, implementing, auditing and managing their EHS programs—all while training employees, monitoring and measuring performance, and reporting on progress. But despite their best efforts, many EHS managers still find their programs fail to drive best-in-class performance. Why? In our experience, the lack ...

  • Time Is Important To Help You Find the Best Provider of Geotechnical Monitoring Services

    If you visit any city in the world, you will find multiple tall buildings where people reside with their near and dear ones. In the good old days, building such tall structures often took several days to complete. However, with the advanced technologies being used in these modern times, constructing a new building hardly takes a few days. For a common man, it is not possible to understand the ...

  • Impact of the As Samra wastewater treatment plant upgrade on the water quality (COD, electrical conductivity, TP, TN) of the Zarqa River

    The impact of the As Samra wastewater treatment plant upgrade on the quality of the Zarqa River (ZR) water was investigated. Time series data that extend from October 2005 until December 2009 obtained by a state-of-the-art telemetric monitoring system were analyzed at two monitoring stations located 4 to 5 km downstream of the As Samra effluent confluence with the Zarqa River and about 25 km ...

  • Asbestos monitoring – what monitor should I be using?

    Asbestos is the name given to a group of minerals that occur naturally as masses of strong, flexible fibres that can be separated into thin threads and woven. These fibres are not affected by heat and do not conduct electricity. Asbestos is chemically, relatively stable. For these reasons, asbestos has been widely used in many industries.  These four types are classified as follows:  ...

  • Climate monitoring - meeting the challenge

    Average global temperatures are on the increase, ice and snow cover is disappearing fast and sea levels are rising. In addition, severe weather situations are becoming more frequent and more extreme. There is clear evidence that the Earth’s atmosphere and oceans are warming: 11 of the 12 years in the period 1995-2006 were among the 12 warmest since 1850. Climate change is a reality and it is ...

  • Monitoring pH and ORP in a SHARON reactor
