  • Is a Horizontal Remediation Well System Right for My Project?

    So your remediation project is moving towards a choice of remedy, whether it involves Dual Phase Extraction, Total Phase Extraction, Biosparging, Soil Vapor Extraction (SVE), Air Sparge (AS), or Chemox Delivery, or any combination of the above. Now, the concept of horizontal remediation wells (HRW’s) for your site seems intriguing. So what do you need to consider before proposing a ...

  • Blockchain Technology Can Boost Climate Action

    Experts meeting at the recent UN Climate Change Conference in Bonn in May have said that a new technology called “Blockchain” could play a major role in tackling climate change. A Blockchain is a distributed database that is continuously updated and verified by its users. Each added block of data is “chained” and becomes part of a growing list of records, under the ...

  • Enhanced Bio-Stimulation through Horizontal Wells

    Biosparging technology can be further enhanced when applied through Horizontal Remediation Wells. Since horizontal well systems typically have 4 to 10 times more screen footage in contact with the contaminated media than vertical systems, Horizontal Biosparge Wells can inject much greater volumes while maintaining the same low flow rates. This, in turn, leads to more rapid increases in dissolved ...

  • The 5 Benefits of Professional Arsenic Removal from Water

  • Building Box Culverts with Articulated Cable Concrete Block Systems

    When you need to manage the flow of water in an area with streams, heavy rainfall or otherwise consistently wet conditions, the box culvert stands the test of time. Box culverts have been around for many years for a good reason: they can be excellent tools for directing and controlling water so it doesn’t cause erosion and interfere with roads, trails or other manmade structures that need ...

  • Laboratory test report - the effect of scale formation on heat transfer coils

    Background EVAPCO, Inc. recently introduced new Evaporative Condensers and Closed Circuit Coolers which utilize extended surface coils. For decades extended “fin” surfaces have been used on heat transfer coils, often referred to as “finned coils” primarily in an effort to increase dry capacity. However, in the past the fin material was limited to carbon steel tubes ...

  • Low recirculation rate evaporators

    Abstract Fin coil evaporators with enhanced internal tube surfaces allow for optimum performance with a minimal overfeed rate. Reducing the overfeed rate requiresless pumping power and smaller line sizes to the evaporator. Additionally, less compressor power is required for the same refrigeration capacity because the wet suction line pressure drop is reduced. Lower compressor power results ...
