  • Cryogenic Treatment Unit (TU-51) for Recovery of VOCs for Soil Remediation

    A Cryogenic Treatment Unit or TU-51 was developed to apply a cryogenic air treatment process to recover persistent vapor phase volatile organic compounds (VPVOC) having extremely low boiling points. These would include explosive compounds present in the vapor stream. The portable TU-51VPVOC (OEM) operates the following process: vapors are recovered from geologic units via SVE, often from a ...

  • A Comparison Between EPA Compendium TO-15 and EPA MEthod 8260B for VOC Determination of Soil Gas

    ABSTRACT Evaluations of vapor intrusion pathways of chemical contaminants often include soil gas measurements to assess the potential for indoor inhalation. No longer just a screening tool, soil gas measurements are requiring a level of quality and defensibility which should be incorporated in soil gas analytical protocols. While both EPA Compendium Method TO-15 and EPA SW-S46 Method 8260B ...

  • Solvent Recovery System Keeps Presses Rolling at World`s Largest Gravure Printing Plant

    When QUAD/GRAPHICS Inc. entered the publication gravure printing market, it followed the axiom of Daniel Burnham, the 19th century architect and urban planner, to 'make no small plans.' In 1985, the Pewaukee, Wis.-based printing company purchased two 96-inch web, eight-color, high-speed presses and installed them at its new printing plant in Lomira, Wis., near Milwaukee. Conventional wisdom at ...

  • Methods for the control of oil vapour emissions

    There are many oil vapours to discharge from oil containers into the atmosphere in oil operations (such as storage and loading). Two basic concepts are discussed regarding the control of oil vapour emission (OVE). The first is to invent active methods to restrain the OVE. The second is to develop passive tail–end remediation technologies to control the released vapour. Oil vapour recovery ...
