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.
The HITEMA chillers are designed to freezing and cooling foods and beverage to avoid bacterial load issues and to maintain the correct temperature during the processing and the storage to avoid risks for human health. Beer breweries, pasteurization plants, bottling lines, distilleries and others, for hygienic needs, we are able to supply our units with covering and hydraulic circuits in stainless steel.
HITEMA can offer a wide range of cooling solutions to the agriculture and farming industry taking care of specific needs and requirements considering that agricultural producers use a variety of refrigeration systems to extend the shelf life of perishable materials. Cooling not only reduces the potential for spoiling due to bacterial growth but also reduces humidity levels for some products. Our products may also be used during sorting, processing, packaging, and storage.
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.
Industrial companies produce during there manufacturing process toxic compounds such as Benzene or H2S. CHROMATOTEC analysers are able to monitor such compounds. For this kind of applications we generally find ranges of 0.1 to 10 ppm. The corresponding analysers for these applications are the chromaFID and the chromaPID, according to technical specifications (gas to be analysed, environment of the analysis, concentration range,…).
During car manufacturing, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) associated with the paints are emitted to the atmosphere. These are carcinogen, toxic and lead to tropospheric ozone formation. Therefore, VOC emissions must be reduced. With this aim, Chromatotec® airmoVOC C6-C12 (GC-FID analyzer) has been used to monitor VOC emissions from a car painting line. Indeed, it can measure concentrations ranging from very low (ppt) to high (ppm) level, so it is suitable for emission measurements. When coupled to MS...
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.
