  • Eliminate Degassing When Measuring Viscosity of Compressor Oils

    Compressor oils can create unique challenges when trying to measure viscosity. Dissolved gases from refrigerants, in particular, tend to bubble out when these oils are measured using traditional viscometers. This can create errors in the measurement, typically causing readings to be much lower than they should be. One way to get around this problem is to allow the oil ...

  • Degassing Refrigerators - Drill-head and Piercing-plier

    1. For what purpose do we have to degas a refrigerator? A refrigerator has to be disposed as hazardous waste. The refrigerants inside a hazardous refrigerator are harmful for the environment (ozone depleting and greenhouse effect). Most common refrigerants are; R12, R134a and R600a. The uncommon is the removal of NH3. Refrigerants are developed to dissolve very easily into ...

  • The Elimination of Ethylene in Domestic Refrigerators

    Ethylene is a plant hormone produced naturally by fruit and other plant tissues. It is known as the ripening hormone because it regulates the series of processes associated with the ripening and senescence of fruit. Eliminating ethylene from the environment, both in storage chambers and transport containers, where it is stored in the form of gas, is a widespread practice designed to provide a ...

  • Concentration and solvent recovery of environmental samples in dichloromethane

    Environmental samples are usually extracted with an organic solvent which is then concentrated prior to final analysis. In this short note, initial conditions and evaporation settings for the parallel concentration of samples dissolved in dichloromethane (DCM) having different starting volumes are presented. These settings have been optimized for high analyte and high solvent recoveries. ...

  • Fast start-up of expanded granular sludge bed (EGSB) reactor using stored Anammox sludge

    Stored Anammox sludge (SAS) was used in an expanded granular sludge bed (EGSB) reactor treating synthetic wastewater with the aim of evaluating its possible use as seed sludge. The SAS had been kept in a refrigerator (4 °C) without any feed. After 2 years, only 1–2% Anammox bacteria could survive in the SAS. However, it soon prevailed in the EGSB reactor after loading. ...
