Cracking in a refinery is a process where the long organic chains in oil are broken to produce shorter chain organics that are more valuable than the oil. Fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) has generally replaced thermal cracking of petroleum hydrocarbon feed stocks. FCC produces more gasoline with a higher octane rating. FCC’s byproduct gases are more olefinic and valuable than those produced by thermal cracking.
Mine backfill is defined as the material used to fill the cavities (i.e., stopes) created by underground mining. Backfilling can be a means to dispose of sludge and/or tailings which may contain hazardous materials and to reduce surface environmental impacts by storing tailings underground. Alternately, backfilling with nonhazardous materials can allow for mining productivity improvements. To these materials are added a variety of fillers such as fly ash, course sand, or gravels along with a binder, such as...
Accidents involving chemicals and other hazardous materials require fast and accurate gas measurements as part of the first response. The Gasmet™ DX4040 portable FTIR Gas Analyzer provides reliable identification and concentration measurements of hazardous gases in 60 seconds or less.
The first response encounters hazardous gases that need to be identified quickly. Gasmet manufactures portable and powerful gas analyzers for these crucial measurements. Measure a vast variety of gases simultaneously, on-site. Read about our solutions for First Response!
The TunnelTech 101 Visibility Monitor (VIS), is an essential part of any road or rail tunnel safety system. It monitors the Visibility within the tunnel and ensures that the tunnel ventilation system provides sufficient clean air for drivers to clearly see the road ahead. The TunnelTech 102 Cold smoke monitor (CSM detects smoke from a fire to rapidly warn the operator of the hazard. Secondly, used in combination with other TunnelTech 101 VIS monitors, the operator can quickly detect the locus of the fire if it is...
Microorganism and bacteria control is increasingly an important topic of discussion in the oil and gas industry. Inadequate disinfection and treatment of well injection water and stimulation fluids, used in the recovery of oil and gas has been proven to lead to a host of negative consequences, including: - Souring the well with hydrogen sulphide gas H2S, Microbiological induced corrosion, Loss of fluid stability during injection., Plugging of the well, Damage of equipment and components (e.g. RO membranes,...
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.
The pharmaceutical industry poses many chemical hazards which can be detected using our PID technology. Our range of personal, portable of fixed VOC detectors will give an unrivalled solution when you want to detect a mixture of uncommon hydrocarbons. Use our tried and tested VOC detectors if you want to measure VOC concentration in a production facility or storage room.
Hospital waste varies from site to site and the biggest challenge is to dispose of this wide range of waste streams using one solution. Incineration is still the preferred way to process Type I to Type IV waste without endangering the health of patients, staff or anyone else coming into contact with them.
For treatment of Iron & Manganese removal, AdEdge Technologies uses our AD26 or ADGS+ media coagulation filtration with ferric chloride as the coagulation agent. This process allows significantly higher flow rates per square feet of media, less backwash water than other conventional approaches, and smaller footprint systems which means lower capital and operating costs. There are no hazardous chemicals or waste involved and the systems may be automated which decreases operator involvement and expense.
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. We at Mercodor will be happy to advise you on the subject of crushing of hazardous waste.
Before natural gas or oil is transported through new pipelines, the entire length of the pipeline assembly is pressure tested using either fresh water or seawater, and is the final construction ‘quality assurance’ test before the pipeline is put into operation. The pressure test is held for a specific amount of time, from between 1 day and 100 days, to ensure structural integrity before the pipeline is placed into operation.
Increased mobility and the soaring worldwide demand for cars have opened up questions regarding sustainability and environmental protection. Hazardous exhaust gases are emitted not only when driving vehicles, but also during their production. The waste gas volumes in the automotive industry reach up to 200,000 Nm³/h.
The Oil and Gas industry pose many potential risks to workforce, workplace and the environment. Hazardous gas emissions are prevalent during production and processing operations with exposure to benzene being a significant concern.
Glove boxes are commonly transparent, sealed containers that have gloves built into the side. They allow users to create the appropriate atmosphere in which to manipulate objects or hazardous materials. Industries such as pharmaceutical, research, metal treatment and manufacturing employ gloveboxes to carry out processes such as welding or the handling of biological substances or chemicals. Gases such as nitrogen, argon or helium are used to blanket the atmosphere within the glovebox, which prevents reactions...
