PROJECT OVERVIEW: The re-lining of 12 seawater supply wells to a depth of 45 metres with Boode Select PVC screen and casing. The supply wells support an offshore oil drilling and production platform and were re-lined following the failure of existing stainless steel screen and casing due to sand ingress and corrosion.
Environmental monitoring is becoming more important every day in local, national and international policies, showing the environmental awareness demanded by society.
This fact gives rise to an increase in the amount of legislation that obliges companies to law enforcement. Thus, the necessity of making more pollutants controls means high analysis expenses to the companies, which need to subcontract this service.
Although applications in this area advance, there is still a clear demand to get new portable and versatile analysis systems for many different application fields such as pollution in environmental or waste waters, monitoring nutrients in agricultural or horticultural water as well as general process control in chemistry industry. Because of the number of enviromental analysis required, there is a need for screening and monitoring measurements of these compounds at contaminated areas.
Traditional monitoring techniques are typically based on laboratory analysis of field-collected samples that require considerable effort and expense, and the sample may change before analysis. Moreover, the equipment currently available is too large and expensive and it cannot be made portable.Alternatively, microfluidic and electrochemical sensor technologies can contribute to the development of new portable monitoring systems, complementing standard analytical methods for different environmental monitoring applications.In this way, the decentralization and integration of all those typical analyses is the paramount importance in order to reduce cost, simplify the analytical process and make more accessible these technologies to end-users. The development of portable, robust, and accurate Lab-on-a-Chip systems to monitor priority compounds such as contaminants, explosives, chemical warfare agents, inorganic and organic ions is a demand of modern society. Portability allows analyses to be carried out outside of the laboratory, minimizing the risk of contaminating the sample and leading to a faster response time at a lower cost.
Thus, MicruX solutions and technologies open the gate to develop portable and esay-handly Lab-on-a-Chip devices in order to improve pollutants in-situ analysis in a very economic and efficient way.
SolidWEAVE metal wire mesh has been used successfully for decades in systems for precoat filtration. High-tensile mesh constructions made of PZ-Microdur, KPZ-Microdur, YMAX® and Plain Dutch Weave form the basis for the long and trouble-free operation of precoat filter systems because they were specifically designed for the high mechanical demands of precoat filters.
PROJECT OVERVIEW: The iconic Markthal in Rotterdam. Supply of unique 0.4mm vertical slot PVC screen for the Aquifer Thermal Storage Energy system at Markthal, a 95,000m2 residential and commercial building with an indoor market hall.
