  • Using the HydraProbe Soil Sensor for Determination of Flood Risk in the New York State Mesonet

    In January 2014, the Department of Homeland Security established the New York State Early Warning Weather Detection System. The centerpiece of the system is the New York State Mesonet, a network of 125 weather stations across the state, with at least one site in every county. Each site measures temperature, humidity, wind speed and direction, pressure, radiation, and soil information (provided by ...

  • Control water – control mold

    There is no single universal way to eliminate all mold growth. But the single most effective method of controlling mold is to eliminate their source of moisture. Moisture doesn’t just mean actual water; it can also be high humidity. Few molds grow when the humidity is under 70%. If they do, it is very slowly. It is safe to say that you cannot stop mold growth until you stop the moisture. ...

  • Biofilm Control for Industrial Waters

    Industrial operations can face a number of serious problems due to bacterial Biofilms growing in process water systems and cooling tower waters. Biofilm-induced corrosion, mechanical blockages and impedance of heat transfer processes result in huge monetary losses each year. In engineered systems, additional risks of biofilm-mediated contamination include negative public health consequences and ...

  • Control of disinfection by products formation potential by enhanced coagulation

    Abstract Jar-test experiments were conducted to study enhanced coagulation effectiveness in removal of disinfection by products (DBPs) from Zayandehrud River at Isfahan Province-the center part of Iran- in 2004. In this study, the removal of suspended and colloidal particles and natural organic matter (NOM) at various coagulant doses and coagulation pHs was assessed through raw and treated ...

  • Erosion control products: cost effective alternatives for revegetation

    Erosion is any horticulturist’s worst nightmare. From the process of replanting and restoration, to the loss of the most fertile soil, i.e. the topsoil, erosion can have damaging effects on any cultivation. Although erosion is mainly associated with water erosion, wind erosion and tillage are another two forms of erosion. So what are the signs that can help identify erosion early ...

  • Controlling Stack Emissions in the Wood Products Industry

    Electrostatic precipitation has been a reliable technology since the early 1900's. Originally developed to abate serious smoke nuisances, the manufacturers of zinc, copper, and lead quickly found electric gas cleaning a cost efficient way to recover valuable product carried out of the stacks from furnace operations. Today electrostatic precipitators are found mainly on large power plants, cement ...


  • Composted Woody Materials Become Erosion Control Product

    In Beaverton, Oregon, Lakeside Reclamation, Inc. grinds incoming yard trimmings and other feedstocks which are composted and bagged for use in erosion and runoff control. The facility recycles over 25,000 tons of wood each year for multiple product use. Owned by Howard Grabhorn, the site includes a limited purpose landfill, composting area, retail products building and comparative erosion control ...

  • Control of malodors using Ecosorb - A natural product

    Abstract Ecosorb removes many malodors, including sulfur dioxide, hydrogen sulfide and ammonia, from the environment. It is made up of a combination of essential oils consisting of an equilibrium of neutral organic compounds and organic buffers. Its pH ranges from 4.0 to 6.8. Acidic malodors such as hydrogen sulfide and sulfur dioxide are removed by at least four mechanisms ...

  • Phosphorus control protects surface waters

    Phosphorus is the decisive factor for excessive algae and plant growth in water bodies, that’s why quality standards require reductions in the amount of phosphorus released from wastewater treatment plants into rivers and lakes. In recent years, the outlet limit values have not only been reduced on national levels. Depending on the vulnerability of ecosystems, especially low target values ...

  • N-nitrosamines, emerging disinfection by-products of health concern: an overview of occurrence, mechanisms of formation, control and analysis in water

    The presence of N-nitrosamines in water bodies used for drinking water purposes may present a more serious risk for humans than regulated disinfection by-products (DBPs) species. Hence, understanding and controlling the incidence of N-nitrosamines represents a contemporary challenge to the water industry. Although many of these molecules potentially formed as DBPs are detected in chlorinated ...

  • Electrical control valve actuators on oil and gas production separators

    Overview Wherever there are oil and gas production facilities there is one specific piece of equipment that is almost always present, the separator. Depending on the nature of the reservoir, oil, gas and water are present in varying proportions. The first stage of any hydrocarbon production process once the product has started to flow from the well is to separate the gas from the liquids and ...

  • Security Aspects of the Free Chlorine Vs Monochloramine Debate for Disinfection by Product Control

     Introduction: In recent years, there has been a move away from the utilization of free chlorine to maintain a residual level of disinfectant in the distribution system towards the use of monochloramine. The reason behind this change is to decrease the formation of disinfection byproducts (DBPs), which are created when the free chlorine reacts with organic material in the water. The use ...

  • Damage control - handling major hurricane damage to production platform

    A major operating company in the Gulf of Mexico had some unique challenges when their existing systems were damaged during a major hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico.

  • Cost-Effective Control of Interdependent Water Pollutants

    Abstract  Excess nutrient loads to coastal waters lead to increased production of algae, which when decaying cause oxygen depletion in bottom sediments, which in turn leads to major changes in marine ecosystems. A cost-minimization model was investigated in which nitrogen and phosphorus were assumed to interact with respect to algae production. It was investigated under what conditions only ...


  • Case study - Neutralization basin odor control for agricultural chemical production

    Challenge: An agricultural plant located in the Midwest manufactures herbicides, pesticides, fungicides, and insecticides. Strict environmental regulations require the company to capture and neutralize all surface runoff and grey water produced at the plant before disposing into the municipal system. In addition, air permits prohibit any odors to cross their fence lines. As ...
