Polyurethane Foam requires toxic gases in it’s manufacturing process. The most common gases fall into the Diisocyanate family of gases. Toluene Diisocyanate (TDI) and Methylenediphenyl diisocyanate (MDI) have exposure limits set by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to ensure employee protection in polyurethane facilities.
All buildings need air conditioning in order to obtained a good indoor environmental quality (IEQ) essential for the proper execution of the tasks and to assure a healthy environment of the occupants. Generally speaking, in the case of smaller buildings this can be provided by A/C units of each room, but once the building reaches a certain size it becomes cost-effective and more energy efficient to use a centralized system. This configuration normally uses “chillers” which are basically giant A/C...
Sustainable Technologies for Treating Produced Water for Reuse or Deep Well Injection. Oil and gas exploration and production are highly complex and capital-intensive processes. Producers face many challenges, including the constraints of climate, environment, and geography. As companies extract oil and gas in areas that at one time were considered unpromising, water plays an ever more essential role.
Ventilation Air Methane (VAM) is a Greenhouse Gas (GHG) released by coal or mineral mining operations, it is also commonly known as Coal Mine Methane (CMM). The air pollutants from this process have a global warming potential 21 times greater than carbon dioxide, which is another well known GHG. As alternative energy technologies have developed, methane is increasingly used to generate electricity and heat. Landfills and mines represent two of the most abundant sources, however reports indicate that more than...
Manufacturing of powdered and liquid flavorings and fragrances involves production phases where flavoring chemicals may be released into the ambient air breathed by workers. Exposure control by gas analyzers in the production rooms and laboratories is necessary to ensure that the Time-Weighted Average (TWA) concentrations do not exceed the maximum Permissible Emission Limit (PEL) values.
Detecting CO2 impurities: Ammonia, Acetaldehyde, Benzene, Total Sulfur Content, Total Hydrocarbons, SO2, COS. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a commonly used additive in food and beverage industry (e.g. for soft drink, brewery, and champagne carbonation). Its fabrication process can lead to the presence of impurities such as aromatics, BTEX, ammonia, acetaldehyde, Total Hydrocarbons and sulfur compounds (Total Sulfur Content, SO2, COS, mercaptans...).
Kurita specifically developed product ranges for drinking water treatment, in order to avoid any kind of problem that might occur with the preparation, transport or use of drinking water. Our technologies can be used for all kinds of conditions, from municipal water suppliers to private buildings (e.g. hotels, universities, hospitals and private homes).
PeCOD® is the only Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) analysis technology to use the powerful UV-activated nanoparticle TiO2 (titanium dioxide) photocatalyst which is at the core of the system. The high electrochemical potential of the TiO2 gives it a substantial advantage over the modest chemical potential generated by the dichromate method. The UV light creates a photohole in the TiO2 sensor with a very high oxidizing power and organics in the cell are oxidized. PeCOD® is extremely accurate across a broader...
MANTECH’s game-changing water quality analysis technology is revolutionizing wastewater treatment at industrial and municipal facilities worldwide. The PeCOD Analyzer provides accurate chemical oxygen demand (COD) results and biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) estimates within minutes rather than the hours or days required for standard COD and BOD testing — without the use of dichromate, mercury, acids and other harmful chemicals.
Indoor air quality is a key part of industrial hygiene. Measuring a vast variety of compounds simultaneously helps to ensure that the air quality doesn’t threaten the health of people. Portable Gasmet gas analyzers are the ideal solution for industrial hygiene measurements.
