Contamination of circuit boards can bring about severe degradation of insulation resistance and dielectric strength. Cleanliness of completed circuit boards is, therefore, of vital interest. For those companies who have established circuit board cleaning procedures, the MIL Spec P-28809 has been used as a guideline for control. Now a simple `on line` test for the relative measurement of ionic contamination has been developed. This fast and economical method for testing circuit board cleanliness uses a Myron L...
The suitability of the new cleanup sorbent, Supel QuE Z-Sep+, has been successfully demonstrated for cleanup of beef kidney matrix. It was found to effectively reduce background without significantly reducing recovery of lipophilic pesticides such as organochlorines and some pyrethroids. GC-MS full-scan data indicated Z-Sep+ was found to provide better cleanup in the form of reduced background than PSA/C18, and less interference in the GC-MS/SIM analysis of the target pesticides themselves.
Anyone and everyone who is responsible for operating and maintaining a swimming pool or spa has to test, monitor, and control complex, interdependent chemical factors that affect the quality of water bathers are immersed in. Additionally, aquatic facilities operators must be familiar with all laws, regulations, and guidelines governing what these parameters should be.
The remediation division of Anguil Environmental Systems (formerly known as Global Technologies) is focused on treating emissions and water contaminants extracted from below the earths` surface. Formed shortly after the 1990 Clean Air Act targeted emissions associated with the extraction of polluted compounds from contaminated sites, Global subsurface remediation equipment has been successfully applied on contaminated sites in North and South America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
Pulp and paper production with none of the odor. Pulp and paper manufacturing is a notorious source of nuisance odors, often stemming from hydrogen sulfide, mercaptans and sulfur dioxide. Fortunately, Ecosorb products offer a natural and effective solution to neutralize these odors and all others associated with the paper and pulp industry. Ecosorb odor eliminators have been used repeatedly by large paper and pulp manufacturers to control odors around on-site black liquor lagoons, primary clarification ponds and...
The natural gas industry has seen a significant increase in activity with the discovery of new shales located throughout the world. The development of advance drilling technologies allow for extraction of gases deeper in the earth, revolutionizing the industry while creating a new demand for air and water pollution control technologies.
Evaporative gas cooling and conditioning systems use specially engineered atomizing nozzles that introduce a controlled amount of finely atomized water into the hot gas stream to reduce and/or maintain gas temperature. The water evaporates completely while absorbing heat from the gases, which results in free-flowing dust, zero liquid discharge, and minimal or no problems with scale buildup on the walls.
Multi-pollutant abatement systems. Different Categories of Waste Incineration: From a regulatory standpoint, the industry is divided into a number of categories: commercial/industrial solid waste incinerators (CISWI), municipal waste combustors (MWC), hospital/medical/infectious waste incinerators (HMIWI), hazardous waste combustors (HWC), sewage sludge incinerators (SSI), and other solid waste incinerators (OSWI). While each sub-category is subject to differing environmental regulations, all can benefit from...
Anguil`s engineering expertise has led to numerous successful air pollution control and emission control installations in the automotive manufacturing industry. From painting vehicles to engine test stations and tire manufacturing, we have supplied oxidizers and heat recovery systems to both tier 1 and tier 2 automotive plants.
As is the case for many industrial manufacturing processes, emissions are best destroyed through the use of thermal and catalytic oxidation technologies. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and Hazardous Air Pollutants (HAPs) are destroyed through the use of high temperature combustion with direct heat recovery. The harmful air pollutants are converted to heat, water vapor and carbon dioxide, creating a destruction efficiency greater than 99%.
Grinding-swarf from the metal processing industry may contain metal alloys, stainless-steel and high-alloyed steel, all of which are ideal input-materials VacuDry unit. The absence of oxygen in the VacuDry process prevents any changes in the chemical structure of the oil, emulsions or metals during the treatment. The output material can later be sold at high prices.
Applying the right emission control equipment for the chemical and pharmaceutical industry requires a thorough knowledge and understanding of the process and system requirements, combined with the ability to provide custom solutions.
Reliability and uptime are essential. Uninterrupted production - all are essential requirements in painting and finishing applications. Just-in-time manufacturing demands uninterrupted production and smooth pressure control that eliminates pressure fluctuations in the painting and finishing process. Dürr Megtec has supplied many systems to tier 1 and tier 2 automotive plants where high volume, low concentration exhaust streams are treated economically and effectively, yet adaptable to changing finishing...
A Single Solution To Manage Composite Odors: Many resins used in the composite industry emit styrene vapors which are considered hazardous in high concentrations and whose odor is an unpleasant nuisance. This gas is categorized as a volatile organic compound (VOC) and listed by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) as a Hazardous Air Pollutant (HAP). Styrene is considered highly reactive in the atmosphere and may contribute to smog formation and the production of secondary air pollutants.
Drying and Curing Solutions: In the industrial sector, drying and curing technologies from Dürr Megtec have been deployed in roll-to-roll processing applications for advanced battery materials, coatings of various types, composites, solar films, membranes, flexible packaging, coil coating, converting, printing, electronics, nonwovens, and other industries.
Mercury-contaminated wastes are a major challenge for many industries including the chlorine industry, oil & gas drilling, oil & gas refineries (catalysts) and fluorescent lamps recycling. Due to strict legal restrictions and HSE requirements, mercury-contaminated waste is required to be handled with special care. We at econ industries have the best solution for each specific mercury waste stream, with plants that are recognised as being state of the art from approval authorities worldwide.
Drug discovery and development for pharmaceutical industries require safe, efficient and compliant sample processing and analytics. BUCHI offers a variety of reliable solutions throughout the whole workflow leading to the production of a new drug, from lead generation to the final registration for introduction on the market.
Andreas Breidbach  and Wolfgang Brodacz [2,3,4] developed a new GC-MS method using fully 13C isotopelabelled analogues of T-2 toxin and HT-2 toxin that allows for the detection of these toxins at concentrations as low as 2–5 ppb.
