Recycling of Paper / Recycling of Cardboard

by eFACTOR3 LLC     based in Pineville, NORTH CAROLINA (USA)

The recycling of paper and cardboard often requires a shredding process to improve the pulping process or to put more weight into the bale. The M&J Shredder line is very effective for reducing the amount of fines in the shredded product. For small volume applications we also offer the WEIMA Single shaft shredder. In many cases these units are used in smaller paper recycling applications were the material is baled. The benefit of shredding before baling is an increased bale weight, and we also offer separation technology to separate contaminates from the paper stream.

Water quality monitoring for semiconductor industry

by Real Tech Inc.     based in Whitby, ONTARIO (CANADA)

Water is fundamental to the manufacturing process in a semiconductor facility. Electronic components are rinsed or washed several times during the producing process with ultrapure water (UPW) to remove residue. Continuous monitoring of organic constituents (TOC) on the influent city water assist with UPW production. Good quality waste streams for the manufacturing process can also be monitored for reuse potential.

Water quality monitoring for dairy industry

by Real Tech Inc.     based in Whitby, ONTARIO (CANADA)

Continuous monitoring of process streams and waste streams in a dairy industry setting can provide various benefits to the operators. One major benefit is that it is possible to minimize product lost to the waste stream by means of reliable online monitoring of organics (TOC) at various points in the plant. In addition, due to the nitrogen deficient nature of milk wastes it is possible to optimize ammonia dosing by accurately and continuously monitoring the organic loads entering the waste stream.

Classification and identification of recyclable material

by Bruker Corporation     based in Billerica, MASSACHUSETTS (USA)

This level is expected to reach over 4 million tons by 2010. Companies that specialize in recycling carpet require a fast, reliable and accurate means of identifying the carpet face fiber type entering recycling streams. Collection of plastics for recycling is increasing rapidly. Plastic recycling faces one huge problem, plastic types must not be mixed for recycling. Even a small amount of the wrong type of plastic can ruin the melt. Whether it is a carpet or plastic, classification and identification of recyclable material can be achieved using Bruker Optics` state of the art spectrometer systems. Bruker Optics has applied the FT-NIR technology and experience to this demanding requirement, and offers the Carpet Analyzer as a dedicated solution for the recycling industry.

Dye penetrant wastewater treatment

by ENCON Evaporators     based in Hooksett, NEW HAMPSHIRE (USA)

Dye penetrant wastewater includes the presence of a fluorescent dye at about 2-3% in the wastewater. Dye penetrants are used as a method of testing weld integrity to confirm there are no leaks. Dye Penetrant wastewater cannot be simply flushed down the drain. Many companies choose to avoid the headaches of labor-intensive wastewater treatment technologies such as chemical treatment or filtration and simply pay to haul the wastewater. This however, can become quite expensive.

Parts cleaning wastewater solution

by ENCON Evaporators     based in Hooksett, NEW HAMPSHIRE (USA)

Parts cleaning wastewater is a common application for ENCON Wastewater Evaporators. Parts cleaning is almost entirely water-based since the Montreal Protocol forced companies to abandon chlorinated fluorocarbons (CFC’s) and solvent degreasers. The wastewater is generally brownish gray and translucent with a soapy appearance. It may have trace settled solids and floating oil.

Air scrubber wastewater solution

by ENCON Evaporators     based in Hooksett, NEW HAMPSHIRE (USA)

Air Scrubbers strip out contaminants from exhaust stacks typically by trickling a stream of salt solution through a bed of media to extract contaminants by putting them into solution. The salts found in these solutions are typically sulfates, chlorides, and carbonates. Air Scrubber wastewater tends to have high total dissolved solids (TDS) or salts. Air Scrubber Wastewater cannot be simply flushed down the drain. Many companies choose to avoid the headaches of labor-intensive wastewater treatment technologies such as chemical treatment or filtration and simply pay to haul the wastewater. This however, can become quite expensive.

Waste water respirometry solutions for toxicity tracking

by Strathkelvin Instruments Ltd.     based in Motherwell, UNITED KINGDOM

If toxicity is identified in a mixed sewage entering a treatment works, the problem for the plant manager is to track and identify the source of the toxicity. This can be done by sampling the effluent stream at various points in its length. By working in a logical sequence back up the sewer network the number of samples can be minimised. This type of testing should be rigorously enforced for new product introduction by a waste producer, as well as sampling the effluents directly at source. The samples would be tested against the activated sludge of the receiving works, using the Respiration Inhibition Test or the Nitrification Inhibition Test.

Landfill Piping Solutions

by ISCO Industries, LLC     based in Louisville, KENTUCKY (USA)

Landfills are active environments. Through natural processes of rainfall, condensation, and decomposition, landfills themselves produce a liquid waste stream, called leachate. Often the leachate contains hazardous materials, so properly managing a landfill requires handling the waste. ISCO offers products and services to help manage leachate including HDPE landfill pipe, perforated and slotted pipe as well as custom fabricated fittings.

Pumping solutions for offshore liquid ring pump systems

by Samson Pumps A/S     based in Viborg, DENMARK

In offshore drilling, the safety of both people and the environment is dependent on the constant management of risk. With great public concern and media attention, the safety of offshore drilling for both people and environment, has been widely discussed for many years. Offshore drilling can potentially cause oil spills or disposal of other waste into the ocean, impacting human life and marine life.

Waste Sorting - Single Stream Recycling

by TOMRA Sorting (TITECH)     based in Mülheim-Kärlich, GERMANY

Single stream, otherwise known as dry commingled waste, comprises mostly of paper & card, plastic packaging waste, textiles and cans. Given that some collection schemes include glass whilst others exclude glass from commingled collection, we have provided figures for both waste types.

Mixed Municipal Solid Waste Sorting

by TOMRA Sorting (TITECH)     based in Mülheim-Kärlich, GERMANY

Traditional (manual) or semi-automated techniques, however, are only able to recover low levels of separate materials from mixed municipal waste streams and mean considerable content going to landfill. In contrast, TOMRA Sorting’s fully automated, state-of-the-art, sensor-based municipal sorting systems convert complex and varied - even dirty - municipal solid waste streams into high quality, separated, marketable output. The systems also make manual sorting unnecessary, thus reducing labor costs and material loss, while increasing efficiency. Operationally, through using detection techniques such as near infrared (NIR), x-ray transmission (XRT), color line cameras and metal sensors in combination.

Water Testing for Environmental Applications

by Myron L Company     based in Carlsbad, CALIFORNIA (USA)

Keeping the water in our lakes, rivers, and streams clean requires monitoring of water quality at many points as it gradually makes its way from its source to our oceans. Over the years ever increasing environmental concerns and regulations have heightened the need for increased diligence and tighter restrictions on wastewater quality. Control of water pollution was once concerned mainly with treating wastewater before it was discharged from a manufacturing facility into the nation`s waterways. Today, in many cases, there are restrictions on wastewater that is discharged to city sewer systems or to other publicly owned treatment facilities. Many jurisdictions even restrict or regulate the runoff of stormwater — affecting not only industrial and commercial land, but also residential properties as well.

Water quality monitoring for brewery industry

by Real Tech Inc.     based in Whitby, ONTARIO (CANADA)

Monitoring process streams and waste streams continuously in a brew house can provide many benefits to operations. Monitoring product in process for color or concentration provides consistency and quality measures. Product loss can be quantified by monitoring waste streams. Processes can be improved to increase efficiency and minimize effluent waste. Effluent waste streams can also be monitored for organic loading with BOD and COD correlations to ensure compliance for discharge.
