  • 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 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 ...

  • A real-time operation of the Three Gorges Reservoir with flood risk analysis

    Risk analysis is essential to reservoir operation. In this study, a new analysis for reservoir operation is proposed to enhance the utilization rate of the flood water from the Three Gorges Reservoir (TGR) during the flood season. Based on five scenarios of hydrology forecasting with the adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system (ANFIS), a multi-objective optimum operation was implemented ...

  • 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 ...


  • Real-time Total Microbial Measurement For Water Distribution Systems

    A well-managed water distribution system is essential for maintaining a healthy water supply. The World Health Organization, the directing and coordinating authority on health (World Health Organization, 2008), has compiled the Water Safety Plan which reflects this. With over 2.3 million deaths per year caused by water born diseases (Davidson, et al., 2005), safeguarding water systems is of ...

  • Reuse of California brine olive oil processing wastewater to meet zero discharge goal

    Abstract Reuse of low strength municipal wastewater is becoming quite common and many technologies are available for that purpose. However, treatment and reuse/recycling of high strength industrial wastewater is still a challenge. In this paper we present some case studies with implemented integrated systems to achieve zero discharge goal. We will concentrate on the description ...

  • The climb to the top

    Back in the late 1980’s when market drivers created the cost-effective option of using above-ground circular tanks for industrial activated sludge processes, there were some early valuable lessons for both aeration equipment manufacturers and plant operators. As production plants got away from in-ground basins, one of the more simple innate operational checks became more challenging; ...

  • Oil Sampling Best Practices

    Obtaining a representative oil sample from a closed loop lubrication system is essential to any good oil analysis program. As oil analysis programs become more standardized for routine monitoring, especially within equipment warranty support programs, equipment makers provide more sampling points on new equipment. These ...

  • 10 Reasons why you should continuously monitor low temperature and liquid chemical sterilants for worker safety

    1. Sterilant chemicals are highly toxic Low temperature and liquid chemical sterilants are designed to kill all microorganisms including resistant spores and if they were not toxic, they would not be effective in sufficiently high concentration to destroy all microbial life including the chemically resistant sporicidal forms of certain ...

  • Rapid and specific detection of Salmonella in water samples using real-time PCR and High Resolution Melt (HRM) curve analysis

    A real-time PCR assay combined with a pre-enrichment step for the specific and rapid detection of Salmonella in water samples is described. Following amplification of the invA gene target, High Resolution Melt (HRM) curve analysis was used to discriminate between products formed and to positively identify invA amplification. The real-time PCR assay was evaluated ...

  • 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 ...

  • Water analysis

    A complete tap water analysis includes the determination of the pH value, the alkalinity and the total water hardness. Both the pH measurement and the pH titration by means of a standard pH electrode suffer from several drawbacks. First, the response time of several minutes is too long and, above all, the stirring rate significantly influences the measured pH value. Unlike these standard pH ...
