  • 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- ...

  • Development and Deployment of a Real-Time Remote Continuous Monitoring System for Manholes

    A new system for the detection of septic sewer overflows (SSOs) and unauthorized intrusions of manholes has been developed jointly with public water agencies in San Diego County, California. The goal of the project is to provide detection of SSOs early enough to deploy personnel to provide preventative action. The system has been in operation since May of 2005 and has detected and, with field ...

  • Why is there no effective real-time Continuous Radiation Monitoring System?

    Japan's disaster has raised many questions regarding safety of the public. It has served as a wakeup call to the agencies tasked with protecting the public. Not least of these questions, but certainly the most far-reaching is the question of the safety of nuclear power and radiation contamination of air and water. Way back when nuclear power was first established, in the 1960s public opinion was ...
