    Hazardous waste treatment solutions for oil and gas industry

    There are a wide amount of applications for our VacuDry® process within the oil and gas industry. A large variety of wastes and by-products that are generated in the oil & gas production chain can be treated effectively and sustainably. In past decades, numerous thermal desorption processes have been implemented worldwide, using a variety of heating chamber designs to separate hydrocarbons from the mineral solids. Such standard TDUs work under atmospheric pressure which can lead to safety risks, high energy consumption, larger emissions and limited flexibility regarding altering feed materials. Due to its unique design, the complications outlined above are avoided throughout the VacuDry® process. When it comes to treating standard oily wastes, mercury-containing waste streams, NORM, and especially for the recovery of highly valuable drilling fluids from drill cuttings; our vacuum thermal desorption process (i.e. vacuum distillation) is economically unbeatable.

    Shredders and crushers for LCD monitor recycling

    According to initial estimates, in Germany about three million LCD monitors will be recycled in the year 2016. However, they often still have backlighting containing mercury and therefore have to be classified as “hazardous waste” in accordance with the German General Administrative Regulation (AVV) and registered in compliance with the German Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (Elektro G) under category 3. Whereby special conditions must ensure that no risk arises from the mercury for the environment or for humans. However, because of a lack of suitable automated procedures for the recycling of LCD monitors, it was to date only possible to dissemble the appliances laboriously by hand, with the ensuing health dangers for the workers.

    Mercury monitoring for isotopic abundance by the ICP-MS

    Studies of real-world ecosystems are very complex. Mercury species inter-conversion as well as mercury deposition and evasion are constantly occurring. One technique to help sort out the processes is to trace reactions using natural Hg isotopes. Either by enriching a system with a particular isotope or determination of isotopic ratios as a technique of source identification, isotopes are a powerful tool for investigation. The Tekran 2600 Total Mercury and Tekran 2700 Methyl Mercury systems are designed to couple to an ICP-MS for mercury quantification by CVAFS and isotopic abundance by the ICP-MS.

    Mercury monitoring for measuring mercury content in hair

    Measurement of mercury content in hair is a convenient technique to estimate dietary exposure without having to handle tissues or bodily fluids. As the mercury present in hair is comprised of different mercury species, full speciation of the compounds is needed for complete understanding. Environment Canada published a technique where treating a basic digestion with Cd2+ in the presence of cysteine allowed analysis of inorganic mercury and total mercury using a Tekran 2600 System. Methyl mercury was then calculated by difference. Tekran has over 18 application notes available for Tekran 2600 users.

    Mercury monitoring for measuring mercury speciation in air

    Tekran offers the only completely integrated, automated system for measuring mercury speciation in air. The Tekran 2537, when coupled to the Model 1130 and Model 1135 provides a continuous record of gaseous elemental mercury, gaseous oxidized mercury and particle-bound mercury. Over the past 12 years, the Tekran 2537-1130-1135 system has been the most significant tool used to advance the understanding of the fate and transport of atmospheric mercury. See the Expert’s Corner for details about international networks using the Tekran Atmospheric Mercury Speciation System.

  • Independent particle characterization services for medical devices industries

    Advances in biomedical implant and device technology continue to present new challenges in the area of physical testing. Particle Size Distribution, Surface Area and Porosity measurement data are invaluable to the biomedical researcher. PTL partners with each client to design projects that provide this needed information while controlling the costs of research. Applications have included particle size analysis of wear particles in fluid submitted from implant fatigue studies and pore size analysis of tricalcium phosphate granules compressed into bone grafting media. Evaluation by photomicroscopy and mercury porosimetry of artifical ligament materials have provided insight to researchers on their products.

  • XRF analysis for product testing & toy safety

    Each week brings a new report of problems with toy safety and consumer product safety. Ultimately, contract manufacturers, importers, distributors, retailers and brand owners all face potential liability when they fail to comply with laws which restrict the levels of toxic materials in their products. Handheld Niton analysers provide quick and easy screening of toys and other consumer goods for lead, cadmium, mercury and other toxic metals. Importers, brand owners and retailers can implement a standardised inspection protocol for incoming shipments to verify compliance, while simultaneously requiring supply chain documentation based on empirical testing.

    Mercury monitoring for mercury flux measurement

    The Tekran 2537 has been used in numerous published studies to measure the deposition or evasion of mercury from natural or contaminated surfaces (i.e. flux measurements). It is anticipated that many mercury flux measurements will be needed in the future to assess the impact of climate change on mercury cycling in the environment. There are two basic ways to do mercury flux measurements. First, the dynamic flux chamber method utilizes a custom enclosure, with controlled air flow, to measure the inlet and outlet concentration over a selected surface to determine the flux over time. Alternatively, the micrometeorological gradient method uses measured concentrations at two levels above a surface. The perfect tool for both flux measurement methods is the Tekran 1110 Two Port Sampler, so the Tekran 2537 can automatically switch between two distinct sampling points. Ask us how we can help you setup a mercury flux system.

    Mercury monitoring for on-site remediation

    Fugitive emissions can be a health concern during removal and disposal of mercury-contaminated material at remediation sites. Thus, remediation projects either indoors or outdoors often require on-site, real-time mercury air monitoring with a Tekran 2537. This assures permitted levels are not exceeded during waste processing and human exposure levels are below government regulated toxicity thresholds. Often multiple sites must be monitored continuously. The Tekran 1115 Multi-Port Sampler is the ideal tool for multiplexing the Tekran 2537 for real-time continuous on-site monitoring of mercury fugitive emissions. Please contact us for more information on mercury remediation monitoring.

    Mercury monitoring for ocean cruises

    Researchers at Battelle Pacific Northwest Laboratory used a Tekran 2600 on a 2009 ship cruise. Due to the low levels of mercury in water, Tekran provided them with a custom 2600 Event Table to pre-concentrate mercury from multiple samples to push the detection limit lower. When planning an ocean bound cruise, instrument dependability is a paramount concern. At sea, there is no possibility to return instrumentation to the manufacturer for quick repair. The Tekran 2600 has a well deserved reputation for dependability and performance. If any repairs are necessary, the instrument is highly user-serviceable and easy to maintain.
