  • Case study - Automotive parts coater exceeds local air quality requirements

    Today many companies are faced with unique air pollution control problems arising from their coating operations. Not only are vented emissions required to be controlled, but now a more pressing issue is how to treat fugitive emissions. Fugitive emissions are the VOC and HAP releases that occur at the coating process or in a mixing area. Fugitive emissions are sometimes difficult to capture when ...

  • Effective control of fugitive emissions

    Are you Building a brand new process and want to get through the permit process quickly? Looking for ways to further reduce emissions? Under an order from U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to further reduce emissions? With EPA continually pressuring industry to reduce emissions, control of fugitives is increasingly important to your overall emissions ...

  • Evaluation of CFD Modeling Methods for Fire-induced Airflow in a Room

    Methods for exploiting the technique of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to model fires and the associated fundamental processes of combustion and radiation are appraised by applying the CFD model JASMINE to simulate the fire-induced airflow in a room-sized compartment. For a systematic evaluation of these methods describing the fundamental processes and the associated mathematical formulation, ...

  • Controoling chlorine costs

    The most widespread disinfectant used in the treatment of drinking water is chlorine, which can be applied in a variety of ways. History has taught us that, in bacteriological terms, chlorinating water is a proven way of disinfecting drinking water. After all, more than 75 years have passed since chlorine was used to disinfect drinking water for the first time. Many years of experience have shown ...


  • Technical brief - fire prevention takes hold

    Supporting contributors to the Code include The Association of British Insurers, The Chief Fire Officers Association and the London Fire Brigade. The Code is being incorporated in many site insurance contracts.
