  • October Tech Tip: Metals Sorption and pH

    At the ambient pH of most aquifers many dissolved metals (Ag, Ba, Cd, Cr, Cu, Fe, Li, Mn, Ni, Pb, Zn) are present as positively charged ions (cations). Transport of these dissolved cations is often controlled by sorption to negatively charged surfaces including sediment iron oxides (e.g., goethite, ferrihydrite, and hematite). At low pH, iron oxides take on a positive charge and sorption of metal ...

  • Long term reductions in airborne heavy metals

    Since many heavy metals, including lead and iron, can be harmful to human health at high concentrations, their atmospheric levels are monitored. The UK Heavy Metals Monitoring Network has been monitoring ambient metals for 25 years, and during that time there has been a steady reduction in the levels of most metals in the air - with a few important exceptions. Airborne metals are produced by the ...

  • ASTM F1160 - 05(2011)e1 Standard Test Method for Shear and Bending Fatigue Testing of Calcium Phosphate and Metallic Medical and Composite Calcium Phosphate/Metallic Coatings

    The shear and bending fatigue tests are used to determine the effect of variations in material, geometry, surface condition, stress, and so forth, on the fatigue resistance of coated metallic materials subjected to direct stress for up to 107 cycles. These tests may be used as a relative guide to the selection of coated materials for service under condition of repeated stress. In order ...

  • ASTM D4185 - 06(2011) standard practice for measurement of metals in workplace atmospheres by flame atomic absorption spectrophotometry

    The health of workers in many industries is at risk through exposure by inhalation to toxic metals. Industrial hygienists and other public health professionals need to determine the effectiveness of measures taken to control workers' exposures, and this is generally achieved by making workplace air measurements. Exposure to some metal-containing particles has been demonstrated to cause ...

  • ASTM F1147 - 05(2011) standard test method for tension testing of calcium phosphate and metallic coatings

    The tensile test method is recommended for tension testing of calcium phosphate/substrate or porous metal coating/substrate combinations and can provide information on the adhesive or cohesive strength of coatings under (uniaxial) tensile stress. The test method may be useful for comparative evaluation of adhesive or cohesive strengths of a variety of types of coatings. Coatings may be ...

  • PILS-IC-VA: semi-continuous determination of anions, cations & heavy metals in aerosols

    Metrohm presents PILS-IC-VA, a new instrumental approach coupling a Particle-Into-Liquid-Sampler (PILS) to a dual-channel ion chromatograph (IC) for measuring aerosol anions and cations and a voltammetric measuring stand (VA) to determine the heavy metals. PILS-IC-VA is a powerful tool to capture the short-term impacts of air pollution as it allows the near real-time determination of the aerosol ...

  • Chromium pollution publication marks 10 years of NPL`s Heavy Metals Network

    Scientists at the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) have detailed the changing levels of chromium pollution across the UK Heavy Metals Monitoring Network, which celebrates 10 years of NPL operation this month. Chromium, a toxic metal, is being increasingly recognised as an important environmental pollutant, and its emission from industrial facilities is controlled by European legislation. ...

  • Fingerprinting emissions from waste incinerators

    The use of MWIs to dispose of materials such as plastic, glass and food waste is increasing in the UK due to EU restrictions on the use of landfill. The European Industrial Emissions Directive, which aims to protect the environment and human health, imposes strict limits on emissions of heavy metals and other pollutants from MWIs. However, the impact of MWI emissions on ambient air pollution is ...

  • Quantitech instruments measure nothing

    Whilst many of Quantitech’s customers need to measure gas concentrations for reporting or process management purposes, some customers simply have to demonstrate that nothing is there. The Quantitech stand at AQE 2013 (40 & 41) will therefore feature instruments that are able to meet both needs. Reflecting the new theme of AQE 2013, the Quantitech stand will feature the latest ...

  • US EPA to conduct air monitoring in Kansas

    The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will place air monitors in Treece, Kan., in September to test for lead and other metals. This action is a direct response to citizen concerns about air quality shared during a recent tour and listening session held at Treece City Hall. The monitors will be used to sample for lead and other heavy metals. The samples from each monitor will be evaluated and, ...

  • Water treatment on a wharf

    The construction of ships' hulls requires large amounts of water and results in large volumes of waste water contaminated with heavy metals such as TBT, PCB, oils, and other toxic substances. In particular, TBT-based varnishes were still in widespread use until very recently and work on older boats inevitably releases TBT. It is now well-established that TBT is harmful to marine organisms and can ...
