World Water Day 2018 - How clean is your water?
Globally, over 80% of the wastewater generated by society flows back into the environment without being treated or reused.1Clean water is an essential part of daily life, from catchment all the way through to wastewater treatment, therefore analysis throughout the whole cycle is crucial. Whether in lakes, pipes, or bottles, we can accompany you with our range of instruments, test kits and applications for your water and wastewater needs. 1) Water Catchment—Surface & groundwater testing Fast testing...
Silver Membranes in Monitoring Respirable Crystalline Silica
Crystalline silica, most commonly found in the form of quartz, is a basic component of the earth; it’s found in soil, sand granite, and other minerals. During many industrial processes, crystalline silica is released as particles that are 100 times smaller than beach sand.1 Due to their size, these mineral particles cannot easily be cleared by human lungs. Instead, they persist in the respiratory system and form scar tissue, contributing to serious health problems for those experiencing prolonged exposure....
What does Vienna’s water supply have to do with the snow depth of the Alps?
The water supply of the city of Vienna stems from high-source water pipelines of the Lower Austrian-Styrian Alps. Here, snow depth measurements play a major role. In the following, we explain, why this is so relevant and how it is monitored… The snow depth is not only important in ski resorts. Experts estimate that up to 50 percent of annual precipitation falls as snow in the Austrian Alps. Apart from individual mountain stations, many measuring devices are located in the valley floor and record precipitati...
4 Benefits of using a centralized solution for water management
Water and wastewater management are closely tied with energy use, environmental impact and employee safety, as each of these impacts—and is impacted by—water management processes in your organization. Just like with all of your other EHS processes, how you manage and organize water and wastewater management can make a big difference in its success. Here are some benefits of managing all water and wastewater permits, analytical results and reports in one central platform. 1. You’ll Stay on...
Gas Chromatography and Breathe Safely While Using Nitrogen
Gas Chromatography and Breathe Safely While Using Nitrogen Gas chromatography is a process used to separate chemical compounds for analysis. The analytical chemistry process is used with gases that won't decompose when vaporized. Gas chromatography are used in a wide range of industries -- everything from forensic science to medical marijuana. While the procedure is highly useful, there are risks when working with nitrogen gas. Learn how gas chromatography works, the role nitrogen plays, and how an oxygen sensor...
