PFOS is an extremely stable compound with strong carbon - fluorine bonds, and reports of its accumulation in wildlife and the environment have attracted international attention and concern, leading to the designation of PFOS as a persistent organic pollutant (POP).The persistent nature of PFOS prevents oxidative decomposition using wet chemical oxidation TOC analyzers; however, the Shimadzu high-temperature catalytic combustion TOC analyzer quantitatively recovers PFOS with high sensitivity and accuracy. Here, we demonstrate measurement of PFOS using the TOC-LCPH high-temperature catalytic combustion and the TOC-VWS wet chemical oxidation total organic carbon analyzers.

Stop the hit and miss in coagulation-flocculation: AppliTek’s charge density analyzer to reduce ...
Specialist manufacturer AppliTek NV has the pleasure to announce its latest analytical solution, called EZ-Charge®, for reducing the potentially skyrocketing costs that come with controlling the amount of suspended solids in waste water treatment. The novel water analyzer has been developed in cooperation with AQRatio (Germany), a company specialized in sewage sludge analysis and control. “As far as we know, our EZ-Charge on-line analyzer is the only system commercially available on the market and...
Introducing a New ASTM Method for the Determination of Total Nitrogen, and TKN by Calculation, in ...
The USEPA Clean Water Act (CWA) requires national approval for all methods used for CWA compliance. There are approved methods for the determination of inorganic nitrogen (NO3-N, NO2-N, and NH3-N), and for organic nitrogen (TKN – NH3-N)2. There are no EPA approved methods for the determination of total nitrogen although it is a required parameter in many USEPA permits, including monitoring of nutrient pollution for ambient water criteria. Because Part 136.3 Table 1b methods are required, laboratories have...
Ammonium, nitrate, and total nitrogen determination in fly ash
Fly ash is a by-product of the combustion of pulverized coal and is composed of small particles. The composition of the fly ash may vary considerably, however, all fly ashes contain substantial amounts of silicon dioxide (SiO2), aluminum oxide (Al2O3) and calcium oxide (CaO). Nowadays, air pollution control standards require a separation of flue gas before being released to the atmosphere. Fly ash, incurred in the flue gas can be re-used e.g. as fill material or raw material for cement . The fly ash sample...
Toxic gas analysis - new video, white paper and case study
Dangerous levels of toxic gases in freight containers represent a major threat to port and transport workers, customs officials, warehousemen, store employees and consumers. However, the risks posed by these gases can be effectively assessed with Gasmet FTIR multigas analysers. Gasmet has therefore published a video, a white paper and a case study; providing comprehensive help and advice for any employers that need to assess such risks in order to protect the health and welfare of staff and customers. The air...
Monitoring hydrocarbons in Bilge water - Case study
The Situation Various processes onboard ships, such as machinery wash-down, maintenance, and leakage, generate oily wastewater. This contaminated water flow collects in the bilge of the ship. Marine diesel, lubricating oils, grease, as well as other contaminants may be present in bilge water. The bilge water is discharged overboard, with oil and grease concentrations in the discharged water limited by national and international regulations.In the United States territorial waters, the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG)...
