A clean and safe environment is a pre-requisite for health and quality of life. BUCHI contributes to this by providing market-leading solutions for sample preparation and analysis to a wide range of industrial companies, environmental testing labs, consultants, and government authorities.
Biogas is a natural gas also known as biofuel or biomass and is produced by breaking down organic material such as household waste, manure and crops grown specifically for biofuel with temperature-sensitive microbes and capturing the by-products.
Maintaining the health of your water treatment facility requires instrumentation you can rely on. Sierra offers turnkey solutions for a variety of gas, liquid, and steam applications. From tracking and allocating natural gas, to measuring compressed air, to aeration basins and digester gas measurements, our thermal mass flow meters are ideal: high turndown, direct mass flow and the highest accuracy in the market—+/- 0.75% of reading.
Voltammetric determination of many heavy metals is also possible in municipal or industrial wastewater. On account of the usually high organic load the sample is usually mineralized by means of UV digestion.
WesTech thickeners are an excellent choice prior to digestion. Although gravity thickening has long been successful, Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) thickening has several process and sizing advantages, especially for BNR applications.
Recover valuable energy with WesTech`s anaerobic digestion process equipment. We offer complete digestion systems to store solids, provide mixing, capture methane gas, and convert it into usable energy.
With its high turndown and direct mass flow, our immersible thermal meters are the instrument of choice for measuring aeration basin air flow and monitoring digester gas. Our multivariable vortex meters are used to measure steam in the cogeneration processes, while our ultrasonic flowmetersare used for influent and effluent measurement.
Companies and municipalities have to remove nutrients from their effluents - such as nitrogen and phosphate - before they can reuse the water. There are also strict discharge limits on the nutrients levels that must be met. Paques has a number of technologies that can deal with these requirements.
Measurement of mercury content in hair is a convenient technique to estimate dietary exposure without having to handle tissues or bodily fluids. As the mercury present in hair is comprised of different mercury species, full speciation of the compounds is needed for complete understanding. Environment Canada published a technique where treating a basic digestion with Cd2+ in the presence of cysteine allowed analysis of inorganic mercury and total mercury using a Tekran 2600 System. Methyl mercury was then calculated...
Application: Anaerobic Digestion plants produce various gas components from a source material (or feedstock) that can be composed either solely or as a mixture of slurries, purpose-grown crops, food and organic waste material. The composition of the gas produced varies depending upon the feedstock and the Anaerobic digestion process itself. As a consequence, it is normal to measure various components of the resultant gas produced to evaluate the efficiency of the Anaerobic Digestion process. Furthermore, due to...
Komline-Sanderson`s pumping, thickening, dewatering, and drying technologies are used to help both municipal and industrial wastewater (sewage) treatment plants reduce their sludge and biosolids disposal cost. Thickening greatly reduces the sludge volume for land application or improved digester performance. Belt press dewatering meets landfill disposal requirements for cake solids.
Indirect drying allows for disposal cost reduction and for the beneficial use of biosolids as soil amendments (fertilizers), sludge...

The Applied Catalyst Activated Carbon Monolith (ACM) can be used for CO2 capture, H2S adsorption, and hydrocarbon adsorption. The porosity and high surface area of activated carbon is sufficient to allow for long-term capture and subsequent de-adsorption of various gases.
