Fouling Control Applications

  • Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) monitoring

    Hydrogen sulfide is the chemical compound with the formula H2S. H2S is colorless, toxic and flammable and is responsible for the foul odour of rotten eggs and flatulence. Hydrogen sulfide often results from sulfur reducing bacteria in nonorganic matter (in the absence of oxygen), such as in swamps and sewers (anaerobic digestion). H2S also occurs in volcanic gases, natural gas and some well waters.

  • Airport Environmental Monitoring

    Water pollution from airport run-off is increasingly coming under public and government scrutiny. As environmental regulations tighten, the ability to monitor for aviation fuel contamination from runway run-off has become essential.

    Monitoring sites at airports can be extremely challenging often with no power or telephone lines available and with limited access for maintenance. Chelsea’s robust UviLux Hydrocarbon Sensor with its low power consumption and high accuracy is ideally suited for this application. Installed at various locations around the airport, deployed with it’s own integrated anti-biofouling system, utilising the GSM network, the monitoring sites send data to a secure ftp site, where any internet enabled device can access the data. In this way the systems act as any early warning system allowing any hydrocarbon discharge to be detected in real-time.

    Optional environmental monitoring features include remote control to allow the user to turn equipment on and off, change the sample rate and detection range. There is also a facility to allow SMS text and email alarm notifications triggered by user-defined set-points together with customised web pages, data displays and automated data downloads via an ftp server.

    Airport runoff can contain high concentrations of various pollutants, in particular polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), the environmental levels of which have to be monitored. An understanding of the magnitude of contamination due to airport runoff water is important for the effective management of airport infrastructure. Chelsea’s robust UviLux Hydrocarbon Sensor with its low power consumption and high accuracy is ideally suited to the airport environment.

  • Microbial testing for metalworking fluids industry

    Microbial Contamination Results in Less than 5 minutes! Microbial growth in metalworking fluids presents a major problem. Storage tanks, recirculation lines, filters, and other equipment can become fouled through microbial proliferation and metabolic activity, which results in a myriad of problems. These problems include compromised product quality from microbially influenced corrosion (MIC), equipment and filter plugging, and health risks from bioaerosols. The best solution to these problems is early detection and treatment. Rapid detection is now possible through LuminUltra’s Quench-Gone Organic Modified (QGO-M) ATP test kit. This advanced test kit provides the user with an accurate measure of total microbial content in any metalworking fluid in less than 5 minutes.

  • Sludge monitoring for water and wastewater industry

    Improved monitoring and automation can deliver more efficient waste treatment and reduced energy consumption and improved effluent quality. The cost of treatment and the quality of effluent discharge can thus be significantly reduced.

  • RailScan

    Ground Penetrating Radar to Evaluate Rail Ballast, Sub-ballast and Sub-grade. Railroad maintenance and service providers have traditionally relied on visual inspection and excavation to assess ballast condition and measure sub-ballast and sub-grade. Ground penetrating radar is used to indicate ballast fouling and accurately measure the structural layers to a higher precision and in far less time than with traditional methods.

    Filtration solutions for pre-treatment for desalination industry

    In desalination plants it is of great importance for the operation of the entire plant that the pre-treatment of the water is good before the salt is to be removed. For reverse osmosis (RO) desalination plants a good pre-treatment is essential for avoiding membrane fouling, resulting in reduced water production and increased operational costs.

  • Microbial testing in upstream oil & gas industry

    On-the-spot measurement of total microorganisms! Microbial growth can be a significant nuisance in the upstream oil and gas sector. Well drilling, completion and stimulation activities can introduce microbes into a producing formation. Microbes found in the near well bore of producing wells can impede inflow, corrode tubulars and pumps and sour the formation. At the surface, production problems associated with microbial infection include corrosion and fouling of wellheads, pipelines, heater treaters, separators and storage tanks and bullets. The best solution to these problems is early detection and treatment.

    Cooling & Drinkingwater: ATP monitoring of biomass growth in waters

    Monitoring Biomass in (Cooling Tower) Waters through ATP monitoring

    The TOXcontrol can be used for ATP monitoring. Currently our company is doing research for further developments for this application on the TOXcontrol.

    Monitoring the microbial population of cooling towers is necessary in order to maintain the proper operation of the system. Conventional methods for monitoring microbial populations work by culturing microorganisms, a time-consuming procedure that requires days or even weeks of incubation before the results are known. Biofouling can be well-advanced before treatment begins. In addition, it is believed that this technique does not detect the full range of microbial life present in cooling systems.
