    Monitoring solutions for the opacity and dust monitoring

    There is a requirement for many small boiler operators to monitor Opacity to determine the smoke density emitted from the boiler. On small boilers we recommend the DCEM 1001 Opacity monitor; this simple, low cost monitor   has high efficiency air purges use compressed air to ensure that optical surfaces are virtually free of dust or debris contamination. This ensures minimal maintenance is required on the sensors.

    Monitoring of hydrocarbons in bilge water

    The Situation

    Various processes onboard ships, such as machinery wash-down, maintenance, and leakage, generate oily wastewater. This contaminated water flow collects in the bilge of the ship. Marine diesel, lubricating oils, grease, as well as other contaminants may be present in bilge water. The bilge water is discharged overboard, with oil and grease concentrations in the discharged water limited by national and international regulations.

    Monitoring of leaks in heat exchangers

    The Situation

    A California refinery produces xylene for use as commercial product and a precursor for petrochemical manufacturing. A primary component to the production of xylene is the isolation and purification of the chemical from a complex mixture of petroleum hydrocarbons. Steam based heat exchangers are used to process the xylene. Inherent to the design and rough duty heat exchangers face during their operation, leaks can and do develop. When a heat exchanger leaks, xylene contaminates the steam and produces a number of problems ranging from loss of final product, contamination and fouling of steam transfer piping, and ultimately bio-fouling of cooling towers. Consistent and reliable monitoring for xylene or other petroleum hydrocarbons in cooling water or steam condensate can alleviate product loss and process equipment down time.

  • Distributed Temperature Sensing Technology for Stream Monitoring

    Temperature is an important factor in streams ecosystems. Heat tracers have been used to characterize contaminant transport, infiltration rates and energy exchange with groundwater, the atmosphere and radiation. The dynamics of these complicated water bodies is also affected by seasonal and diurnal patterns making characterization particularly challenging. Utilizing temperature measurements that capture spatial and temporal variations at stream ecosystem interfaces provides a mechanism for detailed characterization.

  • Microbial testing for metalworking fluids industry

    Microbial Contamination Results in Less than 5 minutes! Microbial growth in metalworking fluids presents a major problem. Storage tanks, recirculation lines, filters, and other equipment can become fouled through microbial proliferation and metabolic activity, which results in a myriad of problems. These problems include compromised product quality from microbially influenced corrosion (MIC), equipment and filter plugging, and health risks from bioaerosols. The best solution to these problems is early detection and treatment. Rapid detection is now possible through LuminUltra’s Quench-Gone Organic Modified (QGO-M) ATP test kit. This advanced test kit provides the user with an accurate measure of total microbial content in any metalworking fluid in less than 5 minutes.

  • Measurement solution for breathing gas analysis

    The quality of compressed breathing gases for aircraft, diving and marine has very tight limits imposed by bodies such as NATO and national bodies such as MOD. The test requirements are for contaminants such as CO, CO2, Total VOC, CFCs and halogenated hydrocarbons, as well as H2O and O2 content.

  • Environmental Monitoring

    Environmental monitoring is becoming more important every day in local, national and international policies, showing the environmental awareness demanded by society.

    This fact gives rise to an increase in the amount of legislation that obliges companies to law enforcement. Thus, the necessity of making more pollutants controls means high analysis expenses to the companies, which need to subcontract this service.

    Although applications in this area advance, there is still a clear demand to get new portable and versatile analysis systems for many different application fields such as pollution in environmental or waste waters, monitoring nutrients in agricultural or horticultural water as well as general process control in chemistry industry. Because of the number of enviromental analysis required, there is a need for screening and monitoring measurements of these compounds at contaminated areas.

    Traditional monitoring techniques are typically based on laboratory analysis of field-collected samples that require considerable effort and expense, and the sample may change before analysis. Moreover, the equipment currently available is too large and expensive and it cannot be made portable.Alternatively, microfluidic and electrochemical sensor technologies can contribute to the development of new portable monitoring systems, complementing standard analytical methods for different environmental monitoring applications.In this way, the decentralization and integration of all those typical analyses is the paramount importance in order to reduce cost, simplify the analytical process and make more accessible these technologies to end-users. The development of portable, robust, and accurate Lab-on-a-Chip systems to monitor priority compounds such as contaminants, explosives, chemical warfare agents, inorganic and organic ions is a demand of modern society. Portability allows analyses to be carried out outside of the laboratory, minimizing the risk of contaminating the sample and leading to a faster response time at a lower cost.

    Thus, MicruX solutions and technologies open the gate to develop portable and esay-handly Lab-on-a-Chip devices in order to improve pollutants in-situ analysis in a very economic and efficient way.

  • Real-time In-situ Effluent Monitoring

    The UviLux BOD Indicator enables in-situ, real-time, reporting of BOD within both natural water systems and water processing plants. The monitor detects fluorescent proteins that are inherent within sewage and slurry and provides an output in BOD equivalent units. The principle behind the measurement is the excitation of Tryptophan-like fluorescence within UV wavelength band, which has been shown to correlate with both BOD and bacterial contamination. With complete flexibility of deployment methodology, the UviLux BOD Indicator can be applied to both water supply and water recovery processing plants. For water supply processing, the UviLux BOD Indicator can be applied at the front end to the water intake to provide alarm of any contaminated water entering the plant. Applications within Waste Water Treatment Works can include monitoring of effluent levels at the final outflow point (into rivers and coastal areas) as well as the primary, secondary & tertiary stages, the data potentially feeding into energy saving systems to optimise process performances. The CTG UviLux BOD Indicator in-situ fluorometer can also be used within pipe and channel networks to test for incidences of black water and grey water cross-over.

  • Radiation Worker Training

    Safe Training Systems (STS) are specialists in the provision of high quality, highly realistic simulated radiation monitors. STS have sold instruments for training to over 12 different countries across the world the majority of which have been used for Nuclear Worker training. The simulation system uses completely safe methods to recreate radiation fields and contaminated surfaces, this means that novice users can be taught basic principles without any exposure. There are of course also benefits to the trainer who again does not accumulate any dose and can therefore carry out more sessions. Instruments for workers vary widely from the Thermo Electra, RO2/20 and FH40G through to Ludlum model 3s and Automess 6150AD. With a wide range of instruments and sources there is always a solution to fit both budget and purpose - please contact sales@safetrainingsystems.com for more information.
