Waste water respirometry solutions for toxicity reduction tests

by Strathkelvin Instruments Ltd.     based in Motherwell, UNITED KINGDOM

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

by DiversiTech     based in Montreal, QUEBEC (CANADA)

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.?

Industrial dedusting

Bio-Hazard and Crime Scene Cleanup

by Omnitec Design, Inc.     based in Mukilteo, WASHINGTON (USA)

OmniAire HEPA air filtration machines can remove odors and toxic VOCs released into the air during the cleaning and removal process. OmniAire portable air filtration and purification equipment offers the most efficient and economical solution to reduce toxicity and improve safely for your Bio-Hazard projects. Typically, the standard 99.97% HEPA filter is sufficient, however, if you need the next level of airborne pollutant removal for more toxic applications, such as filtering out VOCs, viruses, smoke and gas molecules, add an OdorGuard Activated Carbon filter.

Water Treatment Solutions for Nitrate Removal

by Adedge Water Technologies, LLC     based in Buford, GEORGIA (US) (USA)

Most nitrogenous materials in natural waters tend to be converted to nitrate, so all sources of combined nitrogen, particularly organic nitrogen and ammonia, should be considered as potential nitrate sources. Primary sources of organic nitrates include human sewage and livestock manure, especially from feedlots. The primary inorganic nitrates which may contaminate drinking water are potassium nitrate and ammonium nitrate both of which are widely used as fertilizers. According to the Toxics Release Inventory, releases to water and land totaled over 112 million pounds from 1991 through 1993.

Integrated real-time gas analysis solution for emissions industry

by CIC Photonics, Inc.     based in Albuquerque, NEW MEXICO (USA)

Pollutant emissions from industrial smoke stacks are a major national concern due to both health concerns and climate change. As a consequence, there are at least tens of gas analyzer manufacturers in the U.S. alone that compete in that market and have done so for years. What CIC Photonics brings to that competitive field is its expertise derived from its Combustion Efficiency Solution and its high performance IRGAS Systems. The IRGAS-CEM provides real-time and simultaneous measurements of the multitude of toxic combustion products, including CO, CO2, NOx, SOx, CH4, CxHy, H2S, etc. The EP-IRGAS-SPA is also applicable for fast time responses.

Perimeter Monitoring and Area Monitoring

by Boreal Laser Inc.     based in Edmonton, ALBERTA (CANADA)

GasFinder2 can be permanently installed to monitor chemical and petroleum plants for both combustible and toxic gases. GasFinder2 can be used to replace arrays of point sensors for perimeter monitoring. A single light path will replace many point sensors. With GasFinder2 perimeter monitoring, all gas dispersed from a facility is detected and logged.

Automation of molecular pathology

by Aurora Biomed Inc.     based in Vancouver, BRITISH COLUMBIA (CANADA)

Tumor markers found in blood, urine and body tissues can be used in diagnosing and treating cancer. Each tumor marker is indicative of a particular disease and thus can be used for the screening, monitoring and diagnosis of specific tumor types. In addition to being used in prognosis, these molecular markers help to predict the response, resistance and toxicity to therapy. For example, BCR-ABL gene sequence detection is used to diagnose chronic myelogenous leukemia and acute lymphatic leukemia.

ph determination for soil testing

by Metrohm AG     based in Herisau, SWITZERLAND

Determination of the pH value provides information about the acid or base action of the soil solution. This in turn is enormously important for the nutrient supply and microbial activity of the soil. For example, many metals (trace elements) are considerably more mobile in acidic soils. If the soil pH values are very low, toxic levels can soon be reached and these can damage the roots of plants. On the other hand, excessively high pH values quickly lead to a shortage of trace elements because of immobilization.

Gas Detection Solutions for Gold Refining

by Boreal Laser Inc.     based in Edmonton, ALBERTA (CANADA)

Hydrogen Cyanide (HCN) is a highly toxic compound that is a byproduct of many industrial processes. Existing HCN point sensors are maintenance intensive, slow to respond and provide limited coverage. Many HCN sensors do not work reliably in hot or cold weather, or in humid environments. Our technology can be used for fixed monitoring applications or for temporary protection of workers during construction projects.
