  • 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 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 ...

  • 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 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 ...

  • Radio Solution brings real-time monitoring benefits for water supplier

    Introduction of wireless data collection and analysis improves leak detection and water supply efficiency Companies whose business is the delivery of water to consumers, do not only have a responsibility to provide high quality drinking water to both domestic and industrial users, but also to ensure that it is done so economically and reliably. The WLV association ...

  • 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- ...

  • Real-time TOC tightens effluent control at Greencore

    A food manufacturing facility in Selby has installed a new continuous TOC (Total Organic Carbon) monitor, ‘the BioTector’ which has dramatically improved the site’s capability to refine and improve the plant’s wastewater treatment process. As a result the plant is better able to quickly respond to changes in the influent. Greencore Foods is a leading player in the food ...


  • Stop the hit and miss in coagulation-flocculation: AppliTek’s charge density analyzer to reduce polymer dosing

    Specialist manufacturer AppliTek NV has the pleasure to announce its latest analytical solution, called EZ-Charge®, for reducing the potentially skyrocketing costs that come with controlling the amount of suspended solids in waste water treatment. The novel water analyzer has been developed in cooperation with AQRatio (Germany), a company specialized in sewage sludge analysis and control. ...

  • What`s Hiding in Your Waste Piles?

    In over 25 years in the grinding and recycling industry, we’ve learned that there’s always more than meets the eye in a pile of waste materials. Whether it’s a pile of pallets or household garbage, there’s some good and some bad hiding under the surface. It's there if you know how to find it. You can find it with the right industry knowledge, the right equipment, ...

  • 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 ...

  • Improved real-time data anomaly detection using context classification

    The number of automated measuring and reporting systems used in water distribution and sewer systems is dramatically increasing and, as a consequence, so is the volume of data acquired. Since real-time data is likely to contain a certain amount of anomalous values and data acquisition equipment is not perfect, it is essential to equip the SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system ...

  • Field demonstration of a near-real-time multi-metals ambient fence line monitor case study

    National emissions standards for hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) are required under Section 112 of the Clean Air Act to limit the release of specified HAPs. Permitting, monitoring and enforcement of these emission limits are an integral part of managing air quality to protect human health and the environment. However, this is difficult and highly uncertain in the case of fugitive emissions ...
