  • The Light at the End of the Tunnel - How to Successfully Operate a UV Disinfection System

    ABSTRACTOver the past ten years, ultraviolet (UV) technology has become a commonly applied method of disinfecting of wastewater effluent. UV disinfection involves passing wastewater effluent through a confined chamber with rows of underwater lamps emitting UV energy. Viruses and bacteria become inactivated upon exposure to dosages of UV energy, thereby disinfecting the wastewater. The UV system ...

  • Effective Removal of Zebra Mussels with Amiad Screen Technology

    Introduction The zebra mussel, native to the Black and Caspian Seas, has spread in the past few decades to waterways throughout the world mostly via ballast water. Zebra mussels, when non-indigenous to the environment, pose a serious threat to intakes of facilities that rely on fresh and brackish surface water. The mussel colonies obstruct the flow of water through the pipelines eventually ...

  • The design of static mixer heat transfer equipment for adhesives, sealants, resins and polymers.

    The fluids handled within the adhesives and sealant industries are amongst the most difficult to handle of any in the main process industries globally. The characteristics which make them particularly difficult to handle include: High viscosities (typically 1-2000 Pa.s, or 1000 to 2 million cP). Often non-Newtonian (viscosity is not constant and varies with shear rate). Some ...

  • Turning coolant contamination into a profitable oil-reclamation program

    What started out as an expensive problem of metalworking coolant contamination has been turned into a profitable oil-reclamation program. Van Huffel Tube of Warren, Ohio – a manufacturer of welded tubing – was spending about $3,000 per year in recharging a soluble-oil coolant tank that would become contaminated with tramp lubricating oil. The 1,000 gallon tank had to be recharged ...

  • Electronic water treatment reduces fouling in heat exchangers

    The deposition of material on heat transfer surfaces is called fouling which significantly impacts on the thermal and mechanical performance of heat exchangers. Fouling increases the overall thermal resistance and lowers the overall heat transfer coefficient of heat exchangers as well as impeding fluid flow, accelerating corrosion and increasing pressure drop across the heat ...

  • ELECTRONIC WATER TREATMENT REDUCES FOULING AND CORROSION IN PIPELINES

    Increasing pressure loss in the pipeline is often caused by scale corrosion or product fouling of the internal surfaces. This condition slows transmission and distribution capacity, and can require more than just routine maintenance if it remains unaddressed. Interior corrosion, fouling and leakage in pipeline systems will adversely impact bottom-line operations. ...

  • Asia Analysis: Battling climate impacts in low-lying Maldives
