  • Follow toxic gas standards for a smoother project

    Toxic gases, such as Hydrogen Sulfide and Sulfur Dioxide, can injure and kill quickly. Therefore, mitigation of these hazards must be fast and sure. The United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and other authorities take detection of these gases very seriously. The American National Standards Institute/ American Petroleum Institute (ANSI/API) and ISA industry standards ...

  • Impact of Corrosion on Electronic Equipment

    Corrosion is the destruction of metals through reaction with compounds in their environment. It is a natural process because compounds such as oxides, sulphides and chlorides are formed and these are stabler than pure metals. Electronic circuits and components are omnipresent in our environment. Until recently, the thousands of soldered joints that an electronic circuit contains were ...

  • Sensitivity analysis of probits with respect to quantitative risk assessment of airborne toxic chemicals using IITD-QRA model

    This paper deals with the modification of a validated and operational heavy gas dispersion model, namely IIT Heavy Gas (IITHG) model-1, to propose a quantitative risk assessment tool named as IITD-QRA model. IITHG model-1 is modified based on the incorporation of appropriate probit equation and other necessary parameters (e.g., equipment failure rates, weather frequency, average population ...

  • Perfectly clean water without the use of toxic chemicals - The Poultry Industry - Case Study

    Improved water quality increases earnings significantly, in the poultry industry Bacterial contamination in drinking water can be heavily attributed to biofilm buildup inside the water pipes. Danish Clean Water manufactures a line of ECA generators that produce the disinfectant NEUTHOX, which is a highly effective terminator of biofilm. Improving the quality of animals’ ...

  • EPA mercury rules: Keeping the lights on while removing toxics from our air

    Next week the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is expected to finalize new rules to reduce mercury and other toxic air emissions that will affect dozens of antiquated power plants currently operating without pollution controls. These rules have stirred debate in some circles as to whether retrofitting or retiring outdated plants will cause shortfalls in electricity capacity. How will new EPA ...

  • Read about Confined Space in Construction and Atmospheric Testing Right Here!

    In 1993, 29 CFR 1910.146 went into effect as the first federal legislation governing entry into permit-required confined spaces in general industry. Because some industries, such as the construction industry, were covered by specific Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) safety regulations, they were exempt from the confined space entry requirements of the general industry rule. ...

  • Manufacturers face challenges with pharmaceutical impurities

    Pharmaceutical manufacturers may face various challenges when attempting to meet the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) requirements for residual solvents (volatile organic chemicals).Residual solvents in pharmaceuticals are trace level impurities of volatile organic compounds in final products or excipients. In general, residual solvents originate from manufacturing processes related to the ...


  • Forklift Emissions Analyzers

    Forklifts are commonly used in warehouses of various size and capacity for the movement and shipping of goods; however, the unoptimized engines can produce excess quantities of silent and deadly CO gas that can risk the health and safety of the workers. When forklifts are brought in for service usually the CO gas isn't measured. If the CO gas isn't measured and the engine properly optimized then ...
