Nilex’s engineered erosion control and sediment control products reduce the damaging effects of rainfall, wind and wave action on soil structures while replacing or reducing the dependency on scarce natural resources.
Geosynthetic erosion control products are designed to reduce damaging effects of rainfall, run-off, and wave and wind action on soil structures by redirecting water flow or acting as a barrier between the soil surface and water.
Nilex Erosion Control systems include: Erosion...
Problem: Waterborne pathogens can cause serious disease outbreaks. Drinking water disinfection forms the final barrier between these pathogens and humans. For drinking water disinfection, ultraviolet (UV) light has proven to be the best method for inactivation of Cryptosporidium parvum and Giardia lamblia parasites found in natural waters. Organic matter and suspended particles in water absorb and scatter UV light, interfering with pathogen inactivation by UV irradiation.
The AQQA -bag is a personal device to make clean and safe water from water, that is contaminated with bacteria and virus, as for e.g. river or lake water. It covers the demand of one person for 6 months.
While the AQQA -bag provides drinking water in emergency situations, the AQQA-system is made for sustainable solutions, that are installed permanently and provide drinking water for a community for many years. E.g.: One AQQA80 filter can supply enough water for a small village of up to 1600 persons. It is simply submerged into a tank, that is build locally. The raw water runs through the filter just by gravity. In a second treatment step the water is treated with the AQQA-net using the photocatalytic effect.
The MRP Barrier System has been successfully deployed in a number of security applications, including border and vehicle checkpoints. The portable shield system can be used in law enforcement agencies for public safety applications like: barriers to explosives, traffic diversions, and airports and car parks. The MRP Barrier System provides the highest protection in checkpoint scenarios or whenever ballistic or radiation shielding is needed. In comparison to other protective barrier systems the water filled blocks...
The product produced by our firm helps to strengthen the paved surfaces by setting up a separation barrier between subsoil and base, permitting free water to drain quickly, but preventing soils from moving into the base.
The fabric adds tensile reinforcement to the pavement permitting heavier wheel loads while substantially reducing maintenance.
It also provides a long lasting, better quality surface while allowing a 25 per cent reduction in base course aggregate.
For packaging film barriers, the Systech Illinois range of water vapor permeation analyzers offer a wide measurement range with precision temperature, humidity and flow control. These analyzers utilise the Coulometric P2O5 sensor, which is more sensitive and stable than infra-red and does not require calibration. The P2O5 is the primary method for absolute moisture measurement.
Following the successful testing of the MRP Modular System as water barriers in ballistic conditions by the UK Ministry of Defence and the US Defence Department it has been employed at a number of military installations. For example, the Royal Navy is using them in torpedo loading operations to provide secure segregation of munitions and assets. The RAF has installed them in Kandahar, Afghanistan to separate and protect armed under wing munitions on aircraft and likewise, the USAF for identical use on their...
