  • Inactivation of rotavirus in water by copper pot

    The objective of this study was to evaluate the use of copper pots for inactivation of rotavirus present in water. Distilled water was inoculated with rotavirus (2.2 × 107 plaque-forming units (PFU)/mL) and stored overnight (16 hours) at room temperature in copper pots (test) and in glass bottles (controls). The viable count of infectious virus was tested using a plaque assay on MA 104 monkey ...

  • Distillation of oil field produced water for reuse on irrigation water: evaluation of pollutants removal and ecotoxicity

    Desalination is one of the earliest forms of saline water treatment and it is still used throughout the world. In this work, a single-effect mechanical vapor compression (MVC) process was investigated to produce water for irrigation of non-edible cultures from oil-field produced water. Distillation was able to produce a condensate presenting very low amounts of 84 analyzed pollutants. ...

  • Cogen plant produces distilled water

    The Facility Tenaska IV Texas Partners cogeneration facility in Cleburne, Texas is a producer of electricity at a combined cycle plant. The Problem Tenaska wanted their Cleburne plant to be a Qualified Facility (QF). To achieve this, they elected to produce distilled water using the steam from the power generating equipment. A distilling plant using ...

  • Methods of Purification

    Water Innovations Water Systems Carbon Filtration is used for several reasons. Its primary purpose is the reduction of chlorine to less than 0.1 ppm. Chorine can damage softener resins, reverse osmosis membranes, and mixed bed deionization resins. Activated carbon will also help control tastes and odors, provide organic and hazardous organic chemical ...

  • Effect of fuel additives on performance and exhaust emissions of direct injection diesel engine operating on B20 waste fish oil

    The ever increasing diesel consumption, rapid depletion of fossil fuels and environmental concern has prompted an intensive use of biodiesel produced from various sources. In this study, biodiesel (ethyl ester of fish oil) was prepared from fish oil and different blends of biodiesel–diesel (B20, B40, B60, B80 and B100) were examined in a single cylinder, constant speed, and direct injection ...

  • Enhanced degradation of micropollutants by zero-valent aluminum activated persulfate: assessment of toxicity and genotoxic activity

    Advanced oxidation of the aqueous Triton™ X-45 (TX-45), iopamidol (IOPA), ciprofloxacin (CIP) and bisphenol A (BPA) solutions via activation of persulfate (PS) with zero-valent aluminum (ZVA) was investigated. The study aimed at assessing the effectiveness of the PS/ZVA process in terms of target micropollutants (MPs) and toxicity abatements in raw surface water (RSW) and distilled water (DW). ...

  • Cogen plant produces distilled water for resale

    The Facility Panda Energy’s power plant located in Brandywine, Maryland is a cogeneration facility that produces electricity by using gas and steam turbines. The Problem The objective of Panda Energy was to achieve Qualified Facilities (QF) status at their Maryland location. To achieve this, they had to produce distilled water using the steam from ...

  • What’s the difference between distilled and deionised water?

    “Pure” water is used in all types of laboratories for a range of uses – from making up calibration standards to cleaning and even in the rinse cycle in some laboratory glasswashers for a pure clean. There are different types of purified water available – but what is the difference? Distilled water Distilled water is simply made by heating water to ...

  • Types of Water Treatment Systems

    There are different types of water treatment systems, and knowing the difference between them can help you make an informed decision on just what type of treatment you’ll need for your water. There is no best water treatment system that will meet everyone’s needs—each system has its benefits and deficiencies. Here are a few ...

  • Characteristics and kinetics simulation of controlled-release KMnO4 for phenol remediation

    Controlled-release KMnO4 (CRP) technology has been recently developed as an improved, highly efficient technique in wastewater treatment. In this study, batch-style experiments were conducted to evaluate this technology. The release characteristics of CRP in distilled water and the reaction between CRP and phenol were studied and fitted using MATLAB software. Results indicated that in ...

  • What is the best way to do trace metal sampling?

    All samplers contaminate or distort in some way. • Plastics may leach metals from ultraviolet inhibitors, metal-organic plasticizers, (rarely) metal catalysts. • Teflon has a rough porous surface into which ions, fine charged particles, and very fine particles may become attached. Errors may occur in your first sample due to these trapped trace elements. • ...

  • Effect of storage of shelled Moringa oleifera seeds from reaping time on turbidity removal
