  • Case Study PHE Solving fouling test results

    Industry, hotels, commercial buildings even private homes in "Hard" water areas are at a disadvantage due to "Scale" formation on devices, particularly those attached to "Hot" water circuits. A PHE (Plate Heat Exchanger) with a known “Scaling” problem is selected for testing. The attached case study demonstrates how with an “open mind”, even those sceptical of our products ...

  • "Real World" test results of Sialex device in industrial boiler

    Laboratory is a useful step, but many times operations managers / maintenance engineers ask "Can it work in my operation?" A Sialex Ring appears a simple uncomplicated device yet it is designed to remove already existing as well as combat further "Scale" build-up in water bearing pipes and devices attached to these pipes. This includes boilers. "Hard" water (containing high concentrations of Ca / ...

  • Developing a Culture of “Revulsion”: Singapore Tackles Water Wastage

    Singapore is an interesting place. As a city-state it occupies a very small amount of land area, about 700 square kilometers. Packed into this space are 5.6 million people working in one of the world’s strongest economies. A big part of the economy is based on manufacturing and oil refining. Both of these sectors are intensive water users. Because of this, water availability is a big issue. ...

  • Water Security – A Growing Issue with No Easy Fixes

    The issue of water security – access to enough quality water to make it possible to live safely – is a growing concern for many, just ask the communities of Flint and Corpus Christie. The problem is exacerbated when communities and companies come face-to-face over access to water supplies. Wouldn’t the nice idea be to share?  That’s met with disagreements as ...

  • Analysis of Trace Elements in Water by EPA Method 200.8 using ICP Mass Spectrometry

    This application note describes the methodology and use of the Shimadzu ICPMS-2030 ICP mass spectrometer for the analysis of trace elements in drinking and fresh waters following the EPA 200.8 method. This method is also used for analysis of wastewater. In-line addition of internal standards to calibration and unknown samples was accomplished using the Shimadzu Internal Standard Addition ...

  • Case study - Pure oxygen injection pilot test

    Introduction: The Moccasin Bend WWTP uses pure oxygen produced by a cryogenic oxygen plant for activated sludge treatment of the influent waste stream, which consists of municipal and industrial wastes. The waste stream contains a high proportion of high strength industrial waste, which results in a typical COD loading of about 2000 mg/L, which is approximately four times the strength ...

  • Fast, Sensitive, and Cost-effective ICPE Spectrometry Analysis of Trace Metals in Water by EPA Method 200.7

    Introduction The Shimadzu ICPE-9820 multi-type ICP atomic emission spectrometer is the ideal instrument for running EPA Method 200.7. The ICPE-9820 permits simultaneous analysis of all elements, at all wavelengths, allowing high-throughput analysis with little need for dilution. The large 1-inch CCD detector with over 1 million pixels measures 110,000 wavelengths. Overflow channels ...

  • Accuracy, precision, usability, and cost of portable silver test methods for ceramic filter factories

    Locally manufactured ceramic water filters are one effective household drinking water treatment technology. During manufacturing, silver nanoparticles or silver nitrate are applied to prevent microbiological growth within the filter and increase bacterial removal efficacy. Currently, there is no recommendation for manufacturers to test silver concentrations of application solutions or filtered ...

  • Study of hydraulics and mixing in roof tanks used in intermittent water supply

    Roof tanks are common in low and middle income countries, due to the intermittent water supply. Their hydraulic and water mixing behaviour has not been studied. This paper presents the results of a study on mixing and water demand in roof tanks, based on physical and numerical models. Tracer tests were carried out on a real scale transparent wall laboratory model of a roof tank, and a ...

  • Implementing tactical plans to improve water-energy loss management

    Water utilities are aware of the water-energy loss relevance in supply systems. However, they still mainly focus on daily water loss control (real and apparent losses), without considering the impact on embedded energy. Moreover, they are mostly concerned with the economic dimension and, in most cases, tend to disregard the impact that water-energy loss may have on the quality of service, ...
