Case Study: Monitoring Fuel Treatment with On-Site Fuel Analysis
Version 8 of our industry leading SpectrOil Optical Emission Spectrometers offers significantperformance improvements and enhanced productivity. In particular the sensitivity of the instrument has been improved markedly to allow detection of trace metals down to the part per billion (ppb) level. This capability is particularly important to power generators using liquid fuel, as high levels of alkali metals in the fuel can corrode expensive turbines resulting in costly damage and downtime.The significant performance...
How Water Treatment Plants Protect Fish from Disruptive Synthetic Hormones
Scottish Water provides 1.34 billion liters of drinking water every day and takes away 847 million liters of waste water daily. Answerable to both the Scottish Parliament and the people of Scotland, Scottish Water recognizes that innovation is a key enabler for them to deliver sustainable, high-quality water treatment services. One of the many compounds they monitor for is the drug class of estrogens. Estrogens are routinely used either as contraceptive medicines or in hormone replacement therapy and can enter...
Control Algae and Improve the Water Quality in Waste Stabilization Ponds
Due to population growth, accelerated urbanisation and economic development, the quantity of waste water generated is increasing globally. Mainly in low-income areas, a large proportion of the waste water is discharged directly in the environment. When the waste water is treated, the treatment plants may not remove certain pollutants that can have a negative impact on the people and ecosystem. Treated wastewater usually contains high levels of nutrients that can cause algae blooms on the water surface of storage...
The Benefits of Biological Treatment for Drinking Water
The biological treatment of drinking water is undertaken using both organic and inorganic contaminants, and can be used to treat groundwater and surface water. These contaminants, contrary to what the name implies, are applied to strip away the factors that make the water unsafe for drinking until it is potable—meaning drinkable. If you would like to learn more about the benefits of biological water treatment, then read on to discover more about why it is a good treatment option and what obstacles are...
Waste Water Batch Treatment System
Industrial Wastewater Treatment Batch Treatment Systems (BTS) are intended for lower daily volumes of wastewater typically less than 10,000 gallons per day and designed to “batch” treat wastewater from start to finish at one time. In a batch treatment system, a volume of wastewater is gathered, treated by chemical / physical / biological means, and discharged. Storage Tanks accumulate waste often segregated as acid, alkaline, cyanide and hexavalent chrome-bearing which is transferred to a single...
