An Analyzer Immune to Poisons and Corrosives in Wastewater Treatment

We've been talking about the 3 Key Challenges of Monitoring in Wastewater Treatment. Last week we addressed the first one, this week let's focus on the second:

Manufacturing Day 2017

Happy MFG DAY 2017!!

Manufacturing Day is an annual celebration of modern manufacturing during which manufacturers invite their communities — including students, educators, businesspeople, media, and politicians — to their facilities in a collective effort to educate visitors about manufacturing career opportunities and improve public perceptions of manufacturing. Started in 2012, MFG DAY has seen participation grow dramatically over the years. 


Rugged Durable Construction in Wastewater Treatment

Last week we talked about the 3 Key Challenges of Monitoring in Wastewater Treatment. Let's address the first one:

  1. High moisture and humidity can promote corrosion, contamination and clogging that can lead to unreliable readings.

How can the right monitoring system combat these issues? Heat & a simple flow system.

Key Challenges of Monitoring in Wastewater Treatment

Publicly owned treatment works (POTWs) collect wastewater from municipal, commercial and industrial facilities, transport it through a series of contributor pipes, known as a collection system, and deliver it to the treatment plant.

Regulations prohibit these facilities from discharging flammable or explosive wastes from their processes into the liquid collection system. In addition to fire and explosion hazards, these wastes can affect the efficient and effective operation of the treatment facility. 

New Application Note: Using a Calorimeter to Measure Heating Value in Flare Stacks

In the industrial environment proper flare stack design is essential to handle multiple waste streams for maximum destruction performance with minimum emissions. Since destruction efficiency and emissions are important criteria to consider when designing a flare, when the design is done correctly, dramatic operating savings will also be realized.

Summer Safely: Food Safety

Food-borne illnesses are most common in summer, when high temperatures speed bacteria growth and outdoor cooking (without refrigeration or indoor plumbing) reigns supreme. So for our summer safely series this week let's discuss the recipe for staying healthy and safe during warmer months.

When bringing food to a picnic or cookout:

Summer Safely: UV Safety Month

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has declared July UV Safety Month. The goal is to spread the word about how important it is to protect your skin from the harmful effects of the sun’s UV rays. So for this week's summer safely series, let's talk about how to stay safe in the sun.

Summer Safely: Happy 4th

The start of summer is the perfect time to gather with family and friends for good food and fun times. This year, celebrate the adoption of the Declaration of Independence safely! For our summer safely series this week let's go over everyone's favorite July 4th pastime, fireworks.

The safest way to enjoy fireworks is to attend a public fireworks show put on by professionals (stay at least 500 feet away from the show). 

Summer Safely: Keeping Workers Safe

Summer officially began this week, which means lots of fun & excitment but also gives rise to special safety concerns unique to the elements of the season. For the next few weeks we'd like to discuss the different ways we can all summer safely, both at home and in the workplace.

Solvent Based Printing 101

The key hazard in solvent based printing applications is an explosion from the buildup of solvent vapors in the oven or dryer atmosphere. 

This buildup could occur by a malfunction in the production process such as: a sudden or improper amount of coating, a change in ventilation controls or excessive speed. In any of these cases, the concentration of flammable vapor has an opportunity to rise above safe levels, creating a potentially explosive mixture of vapor in air.
