  • New polymer could enable oil recycling in the UK

    A groundbreaking new technology that could enable users to solidify and recycle oil is nearly ready for release in the UK. Already being put to use in the US to clean up the Deepwater oil disaster, CI Agent technology allows oils, petrols and other hydrocarbons to be recycled into asphalt. The chemical is an environmentally friendly blend of seven polymers, which bonds to hydrocarbons of ...

  • Heat exchanger monitoring and protection using UV fluorescence technology

    Fluorescence oil in water measurement technology uses ultraviolet and near ultraviolet light to cause the chemicals in various oils, fuels and heat transfer fluids to fluoresce. Fluorescence is the emission of light energy from molecules that are excited by the UV light. Fluorescence is a well known and understood measurement technology that is specific to oils and fuels or specific dyes and ...

  • Rhodococcus bacteria can help clean up fuel-contaminated sites

    Fuel spillages and leaks from petroleum storage facilities can lead to serious pollution of soils and underground water. In a recent study, two strains of Rhodococcus bacteria were found to be effective at degrading a number of petroleum hydrocarbons and thus helping clean up contaminated sites. Fuels can be significant pollutants of soils and groundwater, especially around fuel storage ...

  • Protect sea-water intakes from oil using turner oil in water monitors

    The protection of Desalination Plants, Open Loop Cooling Water Intakes, Seafood Processing Plants and other seawater users is a special problem during an oil spill or other marine accident. Potential pollution sources include crude oil drilling and production, ships and barges with oily bilge wastewater or cargo spills, and other industrial plants with oil leaks in cooling water discharges. Low ...

  • Gas hazards in the oil, gas and petrochemical industries

    Although flammable and toxic gas hazards are generally well understood by operators, technicians and safety personnel in the oil, gas and petrochemical industries, continuous training and refreshment of knowledge is essential to avoid potential incidents caused by complacency. New personnel are often assigned work activities in potentially hazardous areas with only very limited training about gas ...

  • Glass Lined Bolted Steel Tanks: I Can See Clearly Now…

    In recent years, glass lined bolted steel tanks have become more frequent despite the higher initial cost. The arguments for a glass lined tank are simple: glass coating is non-porous and very rigid. Therefore, the theory is that liquids cannot reach the steel and cause corrosion, which could destroy the tank. Unfortunately, there are a few details which impact performance of glass lined bolted ...
