Paint shop cleaning

by NLB Corp.     based in Wixom, MICHIGAN (USA)

Problem: Build-up on grates, skids, hooks, and carriers reduces paint shop efficiency and often leads to a below-quality finish. Chemical stripping and incineration are effective, but are hard on operating personnel and expose them to hazards.

Ozone generators for swimming pools & spas application

We offer innovative technology to support site assessment needs.

Dustless Lead Paint Removal & Nuclear Decon Tools for Marine Industry

by Pentek Inc.     based in Coraopolis, PENNSYLVANIA (USA)

When ships, submarines and port facilities exposed to the corrosive marine environment need to be repainted, get to clean steel quickly and safely without any messy cleanup using our shrouded power tools! Old paint is removed and packaged in one step using our powerful VAC-PAC HEPA vacuum and deposited directly into 55-gallon drums, safely sealed and ready for transport and disposal when full. No costly containment is required for hazardous jobs, because dust is captured at the surface, before it’s emitted.

Fire Weather Networks , Wildfire Supression

by FTS     based in Victoria, BRITISH COLUMBIA (CANADA)

Every year, 35 million hectares —or about 1% of the world’s forests— are lost to wildfire. Recently in North America the area burnt by wildfires has increased sharply, while regions like Southeast Asia and South America have seen a rise in the number of land-clearing fires and other escaped wildfires in equatorial forests. The extraordinary costs of fire suppression activities are matched only by the damages to property and ecosystems these fire wreak—in South America, this loss is estimated at $1.6 billion annually. In the US, damages from major fires were found to account for as much as 95% of total costs from fire. Advances have been made through the use of basic weather data from meteorological stations. In years past, fire agencies used this data to develop fire danger rating systems that helped them predict, prevent and suppress fires. How can fire management agencies improve their ability to predict, prevent and fight wildfires? By installing dedicated fire weather network.

Crushing of hazardous waste with Mercodor crushing systems

by MERCODOR GmbH Sondermaschinenbau KG     based in Frankfurt am Main, GERMANY

The crushing of hazardous waste such as, for example, sensors, refrigerators, toner cartridges and asbestos is a real challenge for every crushing machine from environmental protection point of view. The Mercodor crushers are best suitable for the crushing of hazardous waste such as asbestos, toner cartridges, refrigerators and sensors.

Analytical and measuring instruments of chemical and petrochemical

by Shimadzu Scientific Instruments Inc     based in Columbia, MARYLAND (USA)

In the chemical field, ICP-AES is used for a broad range of analysis in order to manage trace amounts of hazardous metals in the manufacturing process, manage additive elements essential to the functionality of a product, and manage the environment of the entire factory. Therefore, it is desirable to have a robust, highly stable system able to reliably accept the injection of a broad variety of samples, regardless of the type of solvent (aqueous/organic) or the presence of matrices. It is also important to simplify processes and reduce costs, which enhances the productivity of daily quality control work.

Storage and Loading Areas

by EmiControls     based in Bolzano, ITALY

The amount of dust generated when storing and moving various materials, such as wood, coal and ore, is very high and poses a severe health hazard. EmiControls offers customized solutions for dust control, thereby creating a pleasant, healthy and safe environment for workers and nearby residents. Fixed dust control installations on funnels, conveyor belts and at discharge points are just as suitable for use as mobile units – the right solution to any given problem is identified during the planning and consultation phase.

Incineration Industry Emissions Monitoring & Analysis

by Procal - Parker Hannifin Corp     based in Peterborough, UNITED KINGDOM

Monitoring of emissions from incinerators is a demanding application for Continuous Emission Monitoring Systems. The emissions produced are highly corrosive, some of the gases are soluble and, because the waste being burnt is constantly changing, the resulting stack gas temperature varies widely.

Safety incident tracking

by Perillon Software Inc.     based in Acton, MASSACHUSETTS (USA)

So you have a job that requires you to be involved in hazardous areas? Does your company promote high standards of safety culture? Are you regulated by the EPA, OSHA, and other federal, state, and local agencies? Documenting non-conformances and incidents in disparate static spreadsheets and home-grown solutions is not enough to meet most requirements. You need a centralized safety solution that also allows for detailed evaluations of root cause, corrective action tracking and trending performance so you can mitigate future risk and address systemic issues in the workplace. Perillon Workspace provides a comprehensive and powerful tool to quickly and efficiently identify trends, issues, and problems related to safety.

Gas detection for the winery and brewery Industry

by Crowcon Detection Instruments Ltd - a Halma company     based in Milton Park, UNITED KINGDOM

Once an archetypal example of manual production, the winery and brewery industries now incorporate sophisticated processes to ensure high quality levels and efficient output. In some cases traditional approaches have simply been scaled up or put under more stringent monitoring, whilst in others innovations such as nitrogen-pressurised canning have been introduced. However, whichever approach has been followed there is also a growing realisation of the gas hazards that are associated with both new and old processes, and the need to protect workers from toxic gas exposure and asphyxiation risks.

Medical and Bio-hazard Waste Treatment Technology with zero emissions

by OZONATOR Industries Limited     based in Regina, SASKATCHEWAN (CANADA)

The OZONATOR technology is the new NG-3000 model capable of processing up to 400 kg (880 lbs.) of waste every twenty minutes (1200 kg per hour) and can operate on a continuous basis 24 hours per day – 7 days per week with about one hour per week for service and cleaning. The waste is shredded with up to 90% reduction in volume and treated with a high concentration of ozone (sterilized) and then compacted into a stainless steel transport bin for disposal at landfill as general waste (daily cover) or the treated waste can be used as fuel in a WTE (waste-to-energy) facility. (CV 36.4 MJ/kg)
