  • Air Separation Plants and the Use of Oxygen Monitors

    Air separation plants are critical for many different industries, from clean energy to manufacturing. Nowadays, cryogenic is the most common type of distillation used to separate air into its component gases - nitrogen, oxygen, and inert gases including helium and argon. If your industry relies on air separation for product development or manufacturing, then knowing how the process works is ...

  • Bioremediation of fuel oil spill at a coastal naval air station in the united kingdom

    Introduction Approximately 1000 gallons of fuel oil had seeped from broken storage tank lines into the soil matrix beneath a boiler house. Oil was subsequently forced from beneath the boiler building by periodic heavy rainfall. The fuel oil migrated down a slope into a farmer"s field causing extensive damage to the vegetation and grazing area inhabited by sheep. ...

  • X-ray fluorescence analysis of additives and wear metals in used lubricating oils

    The determination of metal concentrations in lubricating oils is a very important diagnostic development. Such analysis dates back over 50 years, when one of its earliest uses was to assess engine oil from trains. Today, the analysis of both new and used lubricating oils, as well as the monitoring of trends in the metal concentrations and additives they contain, has become an essential control. ...

  • Advances in flashpoint testing: economic impact

    Flashpoint testing is one of the oldest methods of the ASTM D02 Committee on Petroleum Products and Lubricants, which was formed in 1904. The most prevalent standards are ASTM D56 (Tag Method), D92 (Cleveland Method), and D93 (Pensky-Martens Method). These classical techniques, commonly referred to as open-cup and closedcup methods, share a common principle: A test flame is lowered into the ...
