  • Magnetic driven pumps in Molten sulphur service case study

    MD51EFDKR-3U88/06C with NORD SK12XZ-140TC and Reliance 2 HP, TEFC-XE motor Pumping Molten Sulphur is most challenging. Sulphur temperatures must be controlled within a 120-155o C range. Outside this temperature sulphur solidifies. Sulphur has a distinct odour and is highly corrosive in the presence of moisture. Where leakage from common packed style pumps was unacceptable, a ROTAN ...

  • Wastewater Treatment & Recycle

    Fresh water is a scarce commodity; this fact is well acknowledged by one and all. People at all levels be it general public, governmental bodies, and industries understand the implications of good quality water availability in terms of quantity, cost and wastage. As a consequence, there is a growing consensus on wastewater treatment for recycle/reuse. This paper briefly describes the treatment ...

  • The Many Uses of Activated Carbon

    Activated carbon is processed to have small, low-volume pores that increase the surface area available for adsorption. It has applications in the medical, environmental and energy realms, among others. Since 1962, ASTM Committee D28 on Activated Carbon has developed standards that play a pre-eminent role in how activated carbon is used. A D28 ...

  • Mercury Control Demonstrations

    C1.1 | Halogens and Sulfur in Coals and their Influence on Co-benefit Mercury Capture Bernhard Vosteen | President, Vosteen Consulting Gmbh Not only the range of the coal mercury content itself, but also the range of the native halogen and sulfur contents in coal are of great influence on co-benefit mercury capture, wet and dry. The ...

  • Like a phoenix from the ashes

    Thanks to growing environmental awareness, waste is increasingly being separated and recycled. However, residual waste always remains that can't easily be recycled. This ends up in waste incineration plants (referred to as KVAs in Swiss German) for disposal and reclaiming, such as the KVA Linthgebiet in Niederurnen in the Swiss canton of Glarus. Due to the strict environmental specifications ...

  • Global solution: Gas and particulate analysis in Cement industry

    Cement plants are increasingly required to install continuous emission monitoring systems (CEMS). While these represent a significant financial outlay, a range of other factors also need to be considered when selecting a suitable CEMS. To the inexperienced, selecting a suitable CEM can mistakenly be considered as simply ensuring that the applicable national regulations (eg MACT in the USA, ...

  • Fact sheet: EPA mercury rules and power reliability

    New rules from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to reduce mercury and other toxic air emissions will affect dozens of antiquated power plants currently operating without pollution controls. These rules have stirred debate in some circles as to whether retrofitting or retiring outdated plants will cause shortfalls in electricity capacity. How will EPA mercury rules influence the ...

  • How much will a zero liquid discharge system cost your facility?

    With increasing stewardship of environmental protection, both nationally and internationally, many industrial facilities and effluent regulators are strengthening strategies to reduce industrial process waste by implementing zero liquid discharge (ZLD), a process that limits liquid waste at the end of your industrial process to—as the term suggests—zero. A ...
