  • Portable oil analysis tools reduce routine maintenance costs

    What do a power plant, a hospital, a police station, and a remote mine have in common? They all have essential assets requiring uninterruptible power, commonly powered by an engine generator as primary or backup power. Engine generators, often termed "gensets," combine an electrical generator and an engine. They supply electrical power where normal utility power is not readily available or is ...

  • Four Membrane Cleaning Profiles with Micro-90® Alkaline Cleaning Solution, Micro® Green Clean Biodegradable Cleaner and Micro® A07 Citric Acid Cleaner

    SUMMARY Fouling and cleaning profiles of four types of filter membranes were obtained using MICRO-90®, MICRO® GREEN CLEAN and/or MICRO® A07. Simulated fouling processes were performed by using either a synthetic oil emulsion or a combination of the synthetic oil emulsion and a calcium acetate salt bridge mixture. Excellent recovery of permeate flux was obtained with the lowest to ...

  • Lab Gas Price Bulletin November 2018

    A major gas company has increased the gas price for hydrogen and nitrogen gases in North America. This will have a knock-on effect for laboratories who buy nitrogen to supply their instruments. Labs can avoid the gas price increases by replacing their bulk supply with a nitrogen generator. On the 1st of October Air Products increased gas prices for liquid nitrogen, as well as increasing ...

  • University of North Carolina - Case Study

    The University of North Carolina uses a Peak Scientific Genius 1053 to provide a consistent flow of nitrogen for their photolithography and microtechnology applications as opposed to liquid dewars, their previous nitrogen source. Name: Bob Geil Job Title: Laboratory ...

  • Lab Gas Price Bulletin September 2018

    Costs are going to rise significantly throughout the global helium supply chain. Laboratories which use helium as part of their operations are already aware that the helium supply chain is volatile, with occasional supply interruptions and regular price increases. Prudent laboratories should now expect another round of price increases imminently (previous increases are detailed ...

  • Sodium hypochlorite dosage for household and emergency water treatment: updated recommendations

    Household water treatment with chlorine can improve the microbiological quality of household water and reduce diarrheal disease. We conducted laboratory and field studies to inform chlorine dosage recommendations. In the laboratory, reactors of varying turbidity (10–300 NTU) and total organic carbon (0–25 mg/L addition) were created, spiked with Escherichia coli, and dosed with 3.75 mg/L ...

  • Brackish water desalination using electrodialysis: predictive mass transfer and concentration distribution model along the electrodialyzer

    This study employs theory and experimental data from a laboratory-scale electrodialyzer to predict sodium chloride (NaCl) mass transport and concentration distribution along the electrodialyzer as a function of feed concentration, feed flow rate, applied voltage, and pressure. Moreover, a model was developed to predict the ion removal as a function of driving forces through solving the ...
