  • 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 ...

  • The benefits of monitoring compressed air

    Compressed air is used in many manufacturing processes for many different reasons, from the actuation and control of pneumatic valves and cylinders to the operation of process machinery and tooling. It can also be used as a transport medium for bulk materials or as a purge gas. For all its uses it is nonetheless expensive. This is why, through detailed monitoring, a business can enjoy the ...

  • Real time odour monitoring: odour abatement monitoring using electronic noses.

    The equipment implemented to reduce odour emissions is designed with effectiveness in mind. However, some operating conditions may reduce that effectiveness without an industrial site being able to detect this quickly. Processes that most of the time have low odour emissions may become, under certain weather conditions, a major nuisance source. An electronic nose system can detect odour before ...

  • Monitoring Gas Emissions from Volcanoes to Predict Volcanic Activity

    To understand and predict the behaviour of volcanoes an increasing number of scientists are combining geological monitoring and geochemical models. By measuring and monitoring the prevalence of gases like CO2, scientists hope to be able to better predict the likelihood of volcanic eruptions. In 2010 Iceland’s Eyjafjallajökull volcano erupted, releasing 250 million ...

  • Real-time monitoring and forecasting of odor after dewatering in wastewater treatment

    A real-time odor monitoring system was developed to evaluate and predict odors levels of dewatered solids generated by the District of Columbia Water and Sewer Authority’s (DCWASA) advanced 370 mgd wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) in Washington, DC. Each year, DCWASA generates over 400,000 wet tons of biosolids and recycles these biosolids by applying them to over 20,000 acres of agricultural ...

  • Develop a `real-time` air emissions monitoring strategy for your facility

    To improve air quality, states and localities are requiring more intense 24/7 monitoring of listed air pollutants from hydrocarbon processing facilities. Affected facilities must develop reliable and accurate environmental data management systems for reporting purposes. In this case history, the BP Texas City site (a refinery and chemicals plant) successfully implemented a real-time environmental ...

  • 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- ...
