  • How to Use Eddy Current for Hardness Testing

    Many industries depend on hardness testing to ensure that products can stand up to wear and tear. As such, it’s critical for technicians to use equipment that can measure an asset’s ability to resist deformation. One of the best non-destructive testing (NDT) techniques for this application is eddy current testing (ECT).  In addition to using eddy current, technicians also need ...

  • Is Consistency Really the Answer to Better Process Safety Management?

    In the 30 years that have passed since Process Safety Management legislation started to appear in various parts of the world, the lowly risk assessment has come a long way. In the early days, it was a scramble to simply get something down on paper to meet regulatory requirements. Over time, as the methodologies and their limitations became better understood, studies have become sources of raw ...

  • Removing Inorganic Contaminants with Arsenic Water Treatment

    Inorganic contaminants in drinking water are more than just an annoyance. Arsenic is a naturally occurring carcinogen, which is known to lead to both cancer and heart failure. Arsenic is also a difficult contaminant to detect. Since arsenic is both odorless and colorless, testing has to be conducted in order to reliably identify it. Arsenic often appears in conjunction with iron and manganese. ...

  • Reliability of Quary Walls Using Finite Element Analysis

    During the last years the Finite Element Method (FEM) is increasingly applied in the design of quay walls. Especially in case of quay walls with relieving floors and bulk-storage as surcharge load, sub-grade reaction models are limited in their accuracy of modelling the situation. The Finite Element Method often is the only option to more detailed design calculations of quay walls. In the recent ...
