  • 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 ...

  • A Regulatory Perspective on Maintenance of Disinfection Systems

    ABSTRACTThe Clean Water Act contains requirements to set water quality standards for all contaminants, including bacterial contaminants, in surface waters. Wastewater treatment cannot be expected to remove all of the bacterial contaminants, and as a result, many organisms remain in the waste stream. Therefore, disinfection of treated wastewaters is designed to reduce bacterial numbers to a safe ...

  • UV Light Treatment for HVAC Systems

    Ultraviolet (UV) light can be applied to support numerous applications in a broad range of industries. In commercial paint spray booths and label manufacturing plants, UV lamps are used to streamline paint jobs and the printing of logos. Outside of such practices, the light source may also be utilized to eradicate harmful, disease-causing bacteria. Systems that rely on the light’s ability ...

  • High purify water systems for utility use

    Companies in the utility business have a need for high purity water for their operations such as in diesel generator cooling systems and in turbine generator makeup water. Often, utilities can not depend on the city water as the quality is not pure enough and purchasing local water may be expensive. To gain operational and economic advantages, water purification equipment can be added. These ...

  • Crossflow Membrane Filtration High-Purity Water Systems

    INTRODUCTION As the electronics industry continues to provide us with such products as high resolution television, notebook size portable computers and cars with automatic navigation systems, it becomes necessary to produce semiconductors with finer device geometries to allow for efficient placement of more circuits per a given area. This requires increased control of a semiconductor's material ...

  • Do You Need a Microfiltration or Ultrafiltration Membrane System for Your Plant?

    Determining whether or not an industrial plant needs a microfiltration (MF) and/or ultrafiltration (UF) membrane system isn’t always as straightforward as it seems. While these systems are not essential for every industrial process, when thoughtfully implemented within an intake, process, or waste stream, they can go a long way in improving a facility’s efficiency and/or cutting ...

  • Design and management of rainwater harvesting systems to control water quality for potable purposes in Cu Khe, Vietnam

    There are debates about whether rainwater is suitable as drinking water. A serious shortcoming of the debate is that there are differences in the design and management of rainwater harvesting (RWH) systems. This study is based on the performance of two RWH systems that are used for drinking purposes at a kindergarten and a primary school in Cu Khe, Vietnam. Each system comprised a painted ...
