Toxicity Monitoring Applications

  • Premium

    Waste water

    Physico-chemical parameters alone are not sufficient in obtaining reliable information on treated wastewater. Online toxicity monitoring must be performed in combination with routine chemical analysis. The assessment of biological effects of wastewater discharges in the ecosystems is today considered relevant and ecotoxicological tests identifying the ecological hazard are useful tools for the identification of environmental impacts.

    Waste water treatment plants Personnel Safety & H2S filter management

    Context & Challenges Globally, the wastewater treatment is the first public health issue. Urban development leads to urbanization near waste water treatment plant and extension of sewerage network. These aspects induce to an augmentation of sulfur compounds (H2S, mercaptans and sulfides) which are very corrosive, odorant and toxic. To monitor this compounds online CHROMATOTEC® offers high meteorological solutions. As a result of the confinement of the waste water stations, toxic components such as H2S and Methylmercaptan increased. Safety of employees on such working sites has therefore become of major problem. To fight this hazardous pollution, air filtering systems have been installed. For the station managers, personal safety coupled with the need for constant air quality control and filter change has been a heavy task.

    Waste water treatment plants Screening area: stripping

    Context & Challenges Globally, the wastewater treatment is the first public health issue. Urban development leads to urbanization near waste water treatment plant and extension of sewerage network. These aspects induce to an augmentation of sulfur compounds (H2S, mercaptans and sulfides) which are very corrosive, odorant and toxic. To monitor this compounds online CHROMATOTEC® offers high meteorological solutions. To ensure the safety of operatives in the screening building/area of waste water treatment works an H2S analyzer has been installed in the main building to complement the protection provided by individual monitors. Chromatographic measurements show that other sulfurous compounds including Methylmercaptans are present in the air in addition to H2S.

    Oxygen monitoring from aerobic and anaerobic for toxicity test

    Toxicity of pure chemicals is assessed using respirometers by adding increasing concentrations to an active culture. The concentration at which oxygen uptake or gas production begins to decrease is known as the “threshold toxicant concentration.”

    Seawater Biotoxicity monitoring to protect the coastal waters of Italy

    The recorded death of fish in the river that flows out of the industrial zone of Scarlino has created the need of the installation of a biological alarm system. The decision was made to work with an automatic system, iTOXcontrol created by microLAN-The Netherlands represented in Italy by Ecotox Lds, which uses marine bacteria. The system compares the values of the light emission from these organisms at the entrance and exit of the canal, generating alarms in the presence of toxic substances.

    Online Monitoring for the Drinking Water Industry

    AppliTek manufactures wet-chemical analyzers specifically designed for measuring on a continuous base the quality indices of drinking water, from raw water intake up to distribution level. Our systems have a small footprint, reduced reagent consumption and show excellent levels of detection in compliance with modern standards.

    On top of that, the delivery of safe water throughout the water cycle will raise the need for efficient monitoring systems detecting in real-time contaminations. `Broadband toxicity`, a non-specific parameter defined by AppliTek, is a prodigiously new and clean technology for safeguarding drinking water.

    Waste Water

    Waste water, especially industrial waste water, is the most challenging water for instrumentation. Mostly, this water is characterized by highly fluctuating loads, very high salt concentrations as well as a high particle density. Hence, the accurancy and speed of measurements depends on the measurement system itself and the oxidation technique used. Obviously, application-specific analyzers provide huge advantages against standard analyzers that are used for all applications.

    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.

    Precision moisture analysis instruments for rapid solids testing for pulp and paper

    Durable, reliable analysis for black liquor. Black liquor is a difficult substance to work with. It’s caustic, it’s toxic, and it emits poisonous gases such as hydrogen sulfide. But the efficient use of black liquor is critical to the profitable operation of any pulp and paper mill. In order to use black liquor efficiently, you need to test it for solids. Make sure your solids analyzer is up to the task.

  • Integrated real-time gas analysis solution for chemical weapon agents

    The nation has stockpiled thousands of cylinders and canisters of toxic and deadly chemical weapon agents, including mustard gas (HD), sarin (GB), tabun (GA), and V-agents. Most of these CWAs are stored at DOD facilities around the country and many have been in storage for years and years. As a consequence, DOD requirements specify that the stockpiles have to be monitored regularly for leakages to prevent release to the environment and exposure to personnel.

  • Waste water respirometry solutions for toxicity reduction tests

    In industrial manufacturing companies, before a new process comes on-line, it is important to measure the toxicity of the effluent stream. This is especially the case for companies who treat their own waste. From the toxicity value (EC50) obtained, it may be a cost-effective solution to simply discharge the effluent to the treatment works at a slow and defined rate to minimise damage to the activated sludge. Following a period of acclimatisation it is often possible to increase feed rates to the plant and this can again be managed using the Strathtox Respirometer. An alternative approach is to undertake toxicity reduction procedures, such as neutralisation or acid hydrolysis, in pilot-scale laboratory studies. The Respiration or the Nitrification Inhibition Test may be used for this. In the future, toxicity reduction may be stipulated by local authority, water company or publicly-owned treatment works prior to giving discharge consents. Toxicity reduction may be evaluated using toxicity tests on activated sludge provided by the treatment works.

  • Industrial dedusting

    The industrial dedusting field is very varied and branches out in numerous specialized branches. For a preliminary examination of the problem it is necessary to dispose of two series of data: characteristics of the system which emits the pollutants; nature of pollutants and their characteristics.
