  • Waste water respirometry solutions for toxicity reduction tests

    In industrial manufacturing companies, before a new process comes on-line, it is important to measure the toxicity of the effluent stream. This is especially the case for companies who treat their own waste. From the toxicity value (EC50) obtained, it may be a cost-effective solution to simply discharge the effluent to the treatment works at a slow and defined rate to minimise damage to the activated sludge. Following a period of acclimatisation it is often possible to increase feed rates to the plant and this can again be managed using the Strathtox Respirometer. An alternative approach is to undertake toxicity reduction procedures, such as neutralisation or acid hydrolysis, in pilot-scale laboratory studies. The Respiration or the Nitrification Inhibition Test may be used for this. In the future, toxicity reduction may be stipulated by local authority, water company or publicly-owned treatment works prior to giving discharge consents. Toxicity reduction may be evaluated using toxicity tests on activated sludge provided by the treatment works.

  • Soldering Fume Extraction

    Soldering fumes are Unbreathable. Soldering enables the joining of metal parts by melting a filler metal to attach wires and other metallic components. The fumes generated from melting solder especially solder containing Lead or Tin present are dangerous and require local ventilation to remove harmful smoke from the work area. Soldering application need to be properly ventilated to prevent toxic fumes from reaching the worker`s breathing zone. There are a number of different industries such as the electronics assembly industry and electronics repair comapnies who must deal with the hazards of solder smoke. Fumes created by automated PCB soldering including wave soldering machines, handheld soldering irons, torch brazing and furnance brazing are often ignored because of the small volume of smoke generated. However, these applications still require careful consideration as dangerous fumes can impair employee’s respiratory tracts depending on the filler metals used. Because manual soldering applications require working with tiny components, workers end up positioning their heads right above toxic rosin or lead solder fumes with a direct exposure into their throat, nasal passages and lungs, and as a result, they can experience respiratory complications. Rosin irritation can cause various side effects and the inhalation of lead fumes is carcinogenic. As lead oxide smoke collects in your lungs, it can be transferred into your bloodstream. Diversitech recommends installing soldering fume extraction equipment to prevent the inhalation of dangerous fumes. These ventilation units will not only protect each person working at a soldering station when installed and positioned correctly, but they will also prevent fumes from contaminating other worker’s lungs.?

  • Ozone monitoring

    Ozone found in ambient air can have a direct affect on human health and also has the potential to create photochemical smog. It is for this reason that the U.S. EPA has set a one hour limit of 120 ppb and an 8 hour limit of 80 ppb. Ozone has been found to affect human health by harming the respiratory and immune system. People with pre-existing respiratory damage or diseases are more likely to suffer from the affects of ozone.

  • Oil Mist and VOC Collection

    Oil Mist is Unbreathable. Oil based cutting fluids are often used in CNC milling, machining and metalworking. During production, these processes can produce a mist that can threaten sensitive electronic circuitry and presents serious physical risks to employees (accidents from slipping, breathing hazards).? What are the risks in a workshop with oil mist? Exposure to oil mist for a prolonged period of time can cause a number of health issues. Dermatitis Eye, nose and throat irritation Damage to the respiratory system Bronchitis Bronchial asthma Chronic cough Slip hazards (falling, dropping of tools/materials)? How can you protect yourself?? Mist collectors are effective at capturing and filtering harmful oil mist pollution. They can either be installed on individual machines or to a central location. Having the correct oil mist filtration equipment installed will protect your employees from unnecessary health risks. In addition to this, it will also help to protect your business from long term liability and healthcare costs related to workplace air contamination.?

  • LifeFilta R20 Container & LifeFilta TapFilta for disaster relief

    In any disaster relief operation, the biggest problem faced by aid agencies is the logistics and cost involved to deliver safe drinking water to the victims. We have seen plane loads of bottled water being transported to the site of the disaster, hundreds of people are hauled up to unload the cargo and finally each family gets a carton of bottled water, which may last a maximum of 3 days. Compare this with our LifeFilta straw or bottle which can last for a few years. With our LifeFilta R20 container, a family can have clean water for up to 5 - 10 years. The money and time saved by aid agencies can be diverted to other forms of aid such as food and medical supplies.

  • Posi-Shell Coatings

    Posi-Shell erosion control coatings are the perfect low-cost solution to protect and stabilize slopes. Our long-term coatings are spray-applied and allow engineers or operators to protect acres (hectares) of slope in a single day. The finished coating is durable and textured, reducing water energy across large areas. The final product eliminates erosion, siltation, and (as a result) expensive rework. The product can be designed to last for years and is easily tracked into slopes when intermediate protection is no longer necessary. Indeed, when integrated, Posi-Shell actually improves soil quality by conditioning it for future seeding. Posi-Shell’s simplicity and durability make it tremendously effective at controlling windblown dust, infiltration, or runoff associated with clean or contaminated stockpiles. Unlike cumbersome tarps or geo-membranes, Posi-Shell erosion control coatings are spray applied and do not require any ballast. Posi-Shell conforms and adheres to any topography and delivers 100% clean runoff. Stockpile loading or removal is accomplished by breaking into the coating where desired. Active areas may be left open or quickly resealed if required. Posi-Shell erosion control coatings are ideal for protecting expensive piles of salt, coal, or cement clinker; and are used extensively for containing hazardous or radioactive soils.

  • Headworks Odor and Corrosion Control Using Hydrogen Peroxide

    Hydrogen Peroxide typically controls odors and corrosion at treatment plant headworks by direct oxidation of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) within the wastewater. In the direct oxidation mode, H2O2 is applied to the wastewater 5-30 minutes prior to the point where the odors are being released, generally as the wastewater line enters the plant boundary. The efficiency of hydrogen peroxide treatment depends upon the available reaction time, the level of iron in the wastewater (reaction catalyst), wastewater pH and temperature, and the initial and target levels of H2S odor. Under optimal conditions, effective dose ratios are 1.2 - 1.5 parts H2O2 per part dissolved sulfide, and can be reliably estimated through beaker tests. H2O2 + H2S → S0 + 2H2O Frequently, control of odors through the primary clarifiers is wanted. In such case, the mechanism of control is both direct oxidation of H2S (as it rises from the solids blanket), and prevention of odor generation (by supplying dissolved oxygen). Control is typically achieved with a booster dose of 1-2 mg/L H2O2 added to the clarifier influent. Higher doses or alternate modes of addition may be required in cases where: 1) hydraulic retention times are > 2-3 hours; 2) solids blanket depths are > 1-2 feet; 3) soluble BOD levels are > 200-300 mg/L; or 4) waste activated sludge is co-settled with the primary solids. 2H2O2 → O2 + 2H2O

  • Carbon Monoxide (CO) monitoring

    Carbon monoxide poisoning is the most common type of fatal poisoning in many industrialized countries. Carbon monoxide is a colourless, odorless and tasteless gas caused by the incomplete combustion of hydrocarbon fuels. Carbon monoxide is a toxic gas to the human body, when inhaled it binds to hemoglobin, myoglobin, and mitochondrial cytochrome oxidase reducing oxygen storage, transport and respiration in these organelles.
