  • Ballast water treatment on Alaskan coastline - Case Study

    An Alaskan oil terminal had to deal with contaminated ballast water that needed to be collected and treated before discharge. They had a biological treatment process on site, but it was difficult to operate in the temperature and contaminant loading extremes the site experiences and they struggled to get it to work consistently. The plant is also required to treat spring snowmelt and rain that ...

  • Guide To Coolant In Oil Test Methods

    Liquid cooled engines and rotating equipment use glycol based coolants because of their excellent heat transfer abilities. However, glycol based coolants are not desirable at all in lubrication oil itself – Coolant ingression to the lubricant is a particularly nasty contaminant for the variety of damage it can cause. Glycol coolants break down in the high temperature engine environment, ...

  • How to treat radioactive NORM sludge with VacuDry

    NORM doesn’t sound like a big thing. But Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material might let the alarm bells ring. Everyone has heard of “radioactive material” and that sounds dangerous. However, most of this material is trapped deep in the ground beneath our feet. From there it reaches the surface, for example via the water cycle. Another possible pathway for NORM to reach the ...

  • E-guide for Measuring TAN and TBN in Oil

    Monitoring TAN and TBN is an important test for measuring lubricant condition. There are several methods available ranging from expensive laboratory methods to quick field tests. In a laboratory setting, methods are chosen based on the highest accuracy and repeatability that can be achieved with a decent throughput. Out in the field, it is most important to get a trustworthy result quickly enough ...

  • Oil Water Separator Maintenance

    Oil water separators (OWS) can be co$tly to maintain, $20,000 or more on average per cleaning and if not properly managed, can be very expensive conduits of pollution. Have you taken steps to minimize the effects and consequences on your operating co$t? When was your facility’s last OWS maintenance ...

  • Extremely fast increase in the organic loading rate during the co-digestion of rapeseed oil and sewage sludge in a CSTR – characterization of granules formed due to CaO addition to maintain process stability

    In a co-digestion system running with rapeseed oil and sewage sludge, an extremely fast increase in the organic loading rate was studied to develop a procedure to allow for flexible and demand-driven energy production. The over-acidification of the digestate was successfully prevented by calcium oxide dosage, which resulted in granule formation. Mineralogical analyses revealed that the ...

  • Respirometry study about the olive oil effects in the activated sludge process case study

    The problem of Oils in the Activated Sludge Process In many activated sludge plants excessive oils discharges can give rise to Nocardia foaming which causes major operational problems. While the bulk of the oils are removed in Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF) units or grease interceptors the remainder must be treated in the wastewater treatment system. But however, in case of high ...
