Diseases related to contamination of drinking water constitute a major burden on human health. The manufacturing, processing and distribution of safe water throughout the water cycle will raise the need for efficient monitoring systems detecting in real-time contamination, be it chemical or biological. Infectious diseases caused by pathogenic bacteria and parasites are the most common and widespread health risk associated with drinking-water. A number of chemical contaminants have been shown to cause adverse...
The upstream oil and gas industry is increasingly becoming a water management industry. Globally, three barrels of water is extracted for every one barrel of oil produced. With effective management, this produced water can become a source of value, as disposal options become limited and environmental regulations tighten. New water treatment technologies will allow this water to be reused in waterflooding, enhanced oil recovery and hydraulic fracturing operations, in a market worth $5.2 billion in 2014. Managing...
Naturama G3 A-5 is an excellent surfactant, which separates oil from other surfaces. It also breaks some of the long oil molecule chains to smaller ones, such as diesel and benzene, which dissolve in the water.
IIT’s Public Safety Solution includes a comprehensive integrated Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD), GPS/AVL Tracking, and Mobile Data Computer. It has been implemented for Police & Fire Departments across the country. This solution is designed for mutual-aid requests. The largest deployment is state-wide across 23 cities and municipalities in CT.
akvoFloat™ is a separation technology based on a proprietary flotation-filtration process. It has been designed for the treatment of industrial process water and wastewater in the most challenging operating conditions. Within the metalworking industry it is the most cost-effective water treatment technology for the reuse and discharge of metalworking fluids.
The textile industry is a water intensive industry. Rising water costs due to increasing water scarcity and more stringent environmental regulations have lead to textile companies globally to seek advanced, innovative and efficient textile wastewater treatment solutions to assist them to reduce their water footprint, decrease operational cost and maintain regulatory compliance. Therefore, sustainable water quality management and conservation through water reuse strategies are increasingly becoming critical to the...
ULTRAAQUA UV systems are used for a tremendous number of different industrial applications. UV disinfection is typically preferred for internal processes such as fluid disinfection in food processing and cooling water disinfection. Externally for further cleaning of intake water (disinfection or degradation of organic pollutants) or for the waste typically as part of a wastewater treatment system in order to increase water reuse or to produce an environmentally safe fluid waste stream.
If toxicity is identified in a mixed sewage entering a treatment works, the problem for the plant manager is to track and identify the source of the toxicity. This can be done by sampling the effluent stream at various points in its length. By working in a logical sequence back up the sewer network the number of samples can be minimised. This type of testing should be rigorously enforced for new product introduction by a waste producer, as well as sampling the effluents directly at source. The samples would be...
Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) has been used to reduce the BOD and COD of industrial wastewaters for many years. While the cost of removing BOD / COD through chemical oxidation with hydrogen peroxide is typically greater than that through physical or biological means, there are nonetheless specific situations which justify the use of hydrogen peroxide. These include: Predigestion of wastewaters which contain moderate to high levels of compounds that are toxic, inhibitory, or recalcitrant to biological treatment (e.g.,...
In the marine market, ocean-going vessels and fresh water or inner coastal boats require water treatment technologies to meet drinking water, process water and wastewater requirements. Offshore oil and gas operations and ocean-going vessels generate sewage that can contain contaminants which have a detrimental effect on water quality and the overall marine environment. As a result, marine sewage treatment systems are required to lessen the environmental impact. The MEPC.227(64) effluent standards, adopted by the...
Problem: Industrial manufacturers face stringent regulations for discharging wastewater to the environment and municipal sewer systems. Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD) is a primary concern for many discharge limits, as wastewaters high in BOD can have adverse impacts on the aquatic environments by leading to oxygen depletion. In some cases, as a means to supplement BOD, it is also desirable to monitor chemical oxygen demand (COD) of industrial effluents. Both of these tests, are time and labour intensive reducing...
Air pollution, soils, grounds and wastewater
Xenemetrix Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence (ED-XRF) spectrometers bring expanded capabilities to environmental monitoring through the combination of proven detection methods with innovative technologies, including regulatory monitoring for compliance and research.
For industrial and municipal treatment plants; Chemical scrubbers, biological towers and adsorption systems to remove hydrogen sulfide, mercaptans, other organic sulfur compounds and ammonia from digesters, pump stations, ponds, grit and screening works, sludge filter presses and dryers. Special Wet Electrostatic Precipitator for sewage sludge incinerators. Stripping ammonia and other volatile compounds. Decarbonization removal of carbon dioxide from wastewater.
Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) is used as a measure of organic pollutants in water. In wastewater treatment, it indicates the efficacy of a treatment process and is expressed in milligrams per litre (mg/L) or parts per million (ppm). Removing certain fractions of COD in waste streams can be particularly challenging, especially to levels safe for discharge to the environment.
Organic Micro-pollutants are low and trace levels of synthetic organic substances released in water through human activity. They can be found in industrial, agricultural and domestic wastewater streams. Some of the most difficult-to-treat wastewater contains micro-pollutants such as persistent organic pollutants (POPs), herbicides and pesticides, personal care products (PCPs), toxic chemicals, carcinogenic and endocrine disruptive compounds (EDCs), and emerging contaminants.
The analysis of volatile organic compounds at low concentration levels is fundamental to pollution monitoring and control.
Hiden’s Hydramass spectrometer is a multi-stream gas analysis system for analysis of volatile organic compounds to the sub ppm level.
In sea water the analysis of volatile organic compounds is used for both pollution monitoring and ecological studies.
Hiden’s HPR 40 dissolved species analyser provides ppb sensitivity
