Noise and vibration monitoring for nuclear power industry

by ACOEM     based in Limonest, FRANCE

The nuclear industry must increase the availability and reliability of its power stations whilst ensuring that a high level of safety is maintained. The principal weak points in achieving this objective are the industry`s systems and components.

Radionuclide Monitoring for Nuclear Power Plants

by Ecotech Pty Ltd     based in Knoxfield, AUSTRALIA

The continuing establishment of nuclear power stations around the world pose unique environmental challenges for their operators. Ecotech provides air samplers to nuclear power plants for sampling of radionuclides. A nuclear power plant`s radionuclide monitoring network enables continuous sampling of airborne particles onto sample filters contained within High Volume Air Samplers. These filters are then analysed in a laboratory in order to screen for any radiation releases. The challenge has always been to obtain a sufficiently large volume through the filter in order to exceed the laboratory methods minimum detection limits. Ecotech`s MegaVol Sampler, samples at a flow rate of between 120-150 m3/hr providing a high flow rate in order to collect a sufficient sample mass for laboratory analysis. The MegaVol will maintain volumetric flow rate at a preset volume until the filter is either changed or overloaded. The MegaVol can be equipped with a 3G modem in order to remotely monitor flow rate and other diagnostic parameters such as temperature, pressure and wind speed and direction.

Odor Control for Refining

by OMI Industries (OMI)     based in Long Grove, ILLINOIS (USA)

You Refine The Fuel, We’ll Remove The Odors

Oil refineries and petrochemical plants may generate large volumes of odor from the processing and refining of different fuels. Sulfides, mercaptans, and hydrocarbon compounds are all closely related to the oil industry. The odors generated from these industrial compounds are of a high nuisance value and generally create concern among local air boards and the public.

Waste recovery for nuclear wastes

by Tetronics (International) Limited     based in Swindon, UNITED KINGDOM

Nuclear waste is divided into low, medium, and high‐level waste by the amount of radiological character it contains. Low and Intermediate Level Nuclear waste is the radioactive waste resulting from nuclear facility consumables, clothing, laboratory equipment etc. This waste can adversely affect human health and the environment and therefore must be handled appropriately. Typically, the waste is kept underwater for 3-5 years until the radiation decays to levels that can be shielded by concrete in large storage casks, where it can be held for thousands of years. A challenge for the nuclear industry is the cost associated with conditioning, packaging and storage of these heterogeneous wastes. Therefore, a solution that can decrease the volume of nuclear waste, and reduce the amount of storage required, is considered a commercially advantageous option.

Waste Sorting - Refuse Derived Fuel

by TOMRA Sorting (TITECH)     based in Mülheim-Kärlich, GERMANY

One way in which values within waste can be utilized is by using it as fuel. RDF (Refuse Derived Fuel) is a term that applies to materials with a high calorific value (typically around 18 Megajoule per kilogramm) that are removed from waste streams. Beneficiaries of this material cement kilns to power plants. TOMRA Sorting technology has long been utilized in many plants across Europe to produce an RDF material from different waste streams according to the specific needs of the end users. The main purpose of this area of work is to ensure that the RDF has very low chlorine content, typically below 0.7% in weight. TOMRA Sortingis able to achieve this by either selecting the ‘good’ material (‘positive sorting’) or by ejecting the ‘bad’ material from the stream, such as small PVC parts (‘negative sorting’).

Solutions for the textiles industry

by Oxford Instruments plc     based in Abingdon, UNITED KINGDOM

For most of the last decade, Oxford Instruments have been the industry standard throughout the world for finish on fibre determination by benchtop Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR). Synthetic fibres such as polyamide, polyester and nylon are sprayed with an oil-based coating (spin finish or OPU) to reduce static electricity and friction as well as enhance other physical characteristics.

Water removal filtration

by Technical Absorbents     based in Grimsby, UNITED KINGDOM

SAF is the key component for a wide range of enhanced nonwoven filter media fabrics that are designed for the removal of water and particulates from aviation fuel, automotive diesel and a wide range of oils. Such fabrics help reduce problems associated with water contamination in such situations. Its versatility gives rise to cost savings over traditional cellulosic-based absorption media, while offering full compliance potential to stringent international filtration standards – particularly in the aviation fuel and hydraulic oil markets. Applications: A significant reason for the majority of oil and fuel system failures is the presence of high water levels in dissolved, dispersed and free water. SAF-based filter media fabrics can remove both dispersed and free water to very low ppm levels at industry leading rates. This leads to reduced fuel and oil degradation and provides the required filter quality for efficient machine operation.

Energy and Fuels from Auto Shredder Residue (ASR)

by Advanced Plasma Power (APP)     based in Swindon, UNITED KINGDOM

End of life vehicle processing recovers valuable recyclates and removes for recovery all pollutants from automobiles. After this process, the remaining vehicle is shredded for further treatment into smaller parts called Auto Shredder Residue (ASR) sometimes referred to as Auto Shredder Fluff or Car Fluff. ASR contains a mixture of all the different materials that make up the automobile, including metals, plastics, rubbers and textiles. This mixture of materials makes ASR a difficult waste to handle and potentially harmful to the environment. The Gasplasma® energy from waste process breaks down the ASR: Organic materials are transformed into a hydrogen-rich synthesis gas which is used to generate power / Inorganic materials are vitrified to become Plasmarok® /Any remaining ferrous and non-ferrous metals are recovered
