Sludge by-products from the metalworking industry have a high potential for recycling. Prolonged grinding processes can generate large amounts of highly valuable, alloy-rich sludge; consisting of metal powder and cooling lubricants. Inside our VacuDry system, the thermal separation of the liquids (hydrocarbons, eventually water) and solids (metal powder) takes place in an oxygen free atmosphere. This absence of oxygen ultimately eliminates material degradation by oxidation, and self-ignition or explosion risks....
The economic advantage of continuous discharge could only be achieved at this location by meeting strict discharge limits for the level of hydrocarbons present in the discharged water. Local ordinances required continuous monitoring for continuous discharge of the company’s treated wastewater.
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.
The low-cost Rigaku NEX QC benchtop EDXRF delivers compliance with the ASTM D4294 sulfur method (also methods: ISO 20847, ISO 8754, IP 496, IP 336, and JIS K 2541-4) with an easy-to-learn software interface in a robust package specifically designed for the petroleum industry. Optimized for routine determination of sulfur in petroleum, including crudes, heavies, bunker fuel and for upgrading operations, the instrument features an intuitive and modern "icon-driven" touch screen, Smartphone-style interface for easy...
Manufacturers of food and beverages typically have a high volume of product passing through their facilities at all times. For this reason, any unexpected downtime can be very costly in terms of lost production. In addition, many food and beverage facilities have difficult challenges associated with lubricant contamination.
Grand Prix racing utilizes cutting-edge high performance engines operation at extreme RPMs and temperatures. To keep the very valuable engines operational and competitive requires a team of mechanics paying careful attention to the engine and lubricant condition. To support this, engine condition monitoring based on oil analysis has become a widely practiced technique by Formula One racing teams.
Not only do the racing teams themselves take Spectro Scientific instruments to races, but the companies that...
Many large oil companies are Spectro Scientific customers because they employ oil analysis not only to monitor their own equipment in refineries, tankers, and pipelines, but they monitor their own blended lubricant products and also frequently provide oil analysis services to customers who buy their lubricants. Many industrial and transportation companies receive oil analysis services from their lubricant supplier.
Plant and equipment used on ships and yachts are exposed to the harshest of climatic conditions, to rough environments and extremely high mechanical stress. BD|SENSORS pressure and fill level measuring instruments will remain reliable and durable for many years under such conditions of stress. The many certifications for shipping worldwide document that the functionality and design of our equipment is eminently suited for deployment on ships.
Machine condition monitoring based on oil analysis has become an important, if not mandatory, maintenance practice for pulp and paper companies. An effective oil analysis program will keep important manufacturing assets such as pumps, gears, bearings, compressors, engines, hydraulic systems and other oil-wetted machinery in operation by reducing unexpected failures and costly unscheduled downtime.
Machine condition monitoring using oil analysis is widely practiced by virtually every segment of modern industry that maintains large, expensive, oil-lubricated machines. In many cases, especially in smaller plants or enterprises, samples are sent to commercial oil analysis laboratories that can help monitor machinery health.
Engine manufacturers use Spectro Scientific oil analysis instruments to assist in engine testing during new product development, testing engines during manufacturing run-in, and for qualifying new lubricants. Engines include:
Gasoline and diesel automobile engines
Truck and other high speed diesel engines
Medium speed diesel engines such as those used for locomotives, marine and power generation
Extremely large low speed diesel engines for marine propulsion and power generation
Metals processing industries employ large, critical assets, the reliability of which is absolutely essential to their business model. An undetected failure of a piece of processing equipment such as a rolling mill gearbox, or a 1000 ton extruder press not only involves the cost of equipment repair and line downtime, but the product quality may be severely impacted. Today more than ever, there is also less redundancy. Oil analysis is a critical aspect of a reliability based maintenance program, and for...
Machine condition monitoring based on oil analysis has become an important, if not mandatory, maintenance practice by the marine industry. An effective oil analysis program will keep important assets such as engines, gearboxes, hydraulic systems, turbines, compressors, generators and any other oil-wetted machinery in operation by reducing unexpected failures and costly unscheduled down time.
In Situ Thermal Remediation (ISTR) Beneath and Around Existing Buildings and Infrastructure; In Situ Thermal Remediation (ISTR) technologies, including In Situ Thermal Desorption (ISTD), the Electro-Thermal Dynamic Stripping Process (ET-DSP™), which is an advanced form of electrical resistance heating, and Steam Enhanced Extraction (SEE) have been demonstrated effective in treating source zones with limited access and those adjacent to or beneath buildings and other infrastructure.
Searching for a solution to monitoring the water in your oil. Our on-line oil water content analyzer instantly shows changes in the lubrication oil water content. OILAN A4 detects water leaks in their early stages and helps to prevent expensive failures and down time of the lubricated machinery and Equipment. This Equipment measures the water content above the saturation point.
Manufacturing, metal fabrication and metal finishing require multiple washing processes to remove residue, oil, acids and other lubricants and contaminants before during and following various process steps. This generates large volumes of wastewater containing alkaline, acid solutions, heavy metal wastewaters, paint, plating residue wastewater, and other metal fabrication wastewaters. Wastewater and wash water from spills and floor cleaning must also be properly disposed. These manufacturing waste waters cannot...
P-80 Lubricants are used in the manufacturing and repair and maintenance of heavy-duty construction vehicles. Rubber assembly applications include bushings, leaf springs, chassis, and suspension components. P-80 Lubricants provide temporary lubrication to rubber or soft plastic parts.
