A specialty chemical manufacturer of pure resins collects & sends the discharge from the manufacturing process to a wastewater collection pit.
They continuously monitored the atmosphere of the collection pit with LFL infrared sensors for parts per million levels, confirming safe release of the wastewater. However, they found the IR sensor's scale was too high to detect the low ppm levels they needed.
A developer and producer of generic drugs uses a pharmaceutical process that involves coating products with a mixture of solvents and then heating them in batch ovens. The solvents evaporate off, are collected and fed into a main duct, that feeds into the thermal oxidizer for destruction.
“What if today, we were just grateful for everything?” - Charlie Brown
In a year where the holidays will look very different than in years past, it's important to focus on what we have to be grateful for..and at Control Instruments we are grateful for your patronage, loyalty, & support.
This month's Safety E-Book topic highlight is: Process Monitoring.
Enclosed spaces require an active sample drawing system. Active sampling systems are superior to diffusion-sampling systems because they confirm that a sample is flowing across the sensing element, but since a sample is being transported, they are also more complicated.
