Groundwater Remediation Systems

Groundwater Remediation Water remediation is the process of cleaning, sanitizing, and restoring materials where the water damage has occurred. Water damage that is not treated can become hazardous. Mold growth, bacteria, and viruses can occur. Groundwater is water that sits below the ground and saturates the pore space in the subsurface. Around 40% of the world’s drinking water is drawn from groundwater in boreholes and dug wells. This groundwater provides farmers with the water needed to irrigate their crops. Companies use it to manufacture their products. Groundwater contamination can occur from spills during industrial operations, leaking from landfills, and applications

Precise Liquefied Gas Dosing

Our customers have many applications with chemical reactions that are conducted at high pressures. These applications frequently require precise gas dosing. You can replace organic solvents with more effective alternatives, like liquefied gases. What is Liquefied Gas Dosing? It is a gas at atmospheric pressure and room temperature turned into a liquid by cooling or compression. An example of this is liquefied carbon dioxide (CO2) which is an excellent extraction solvent for non-polar chemical compounds. There are obstacles when using liquefied gas, such as difficulty in handling these liquid/gas substances and lack of dosing precision. Bronkhorst has taken note of

How To Convert Analog Signals Into Engineering Units

Utilizing Scale Instructions to Convert Analog Signals into Engineering Units Relating 4-20mA Analog input signals to engineering units has proven to be difficult for users. At first glance, this seems like a simple task- apply a mathematical formula to an analog input value to convert the result into engineering units. The execution of this “simple task” rarely seems simple at all. Thankfully with Horner’s Cscape SCALE instruction, the need for algebra or any math is eliminated. Utilizing Scale Instructions Scale instruction is configured in ladder logic. The Scale instruction has the following parameters (see table 1 below): This will allow

Why Flow Control is Important in Catalyst Research

Catalyst Research In this article, I want to discuss one of our most common applications; Catalyst Research. Many of our customers are using catalysts to quicken a chemical reaction. One of the core benefits of using a catalyst is their efficiency. A small amount of catalyst is able to recover a large amount of reaction products What Are Catalysts? We know what Solid catalysts do, but what are they? They are small, highly porous media. These pore systems are formed by many irregularly shaped and interconnected pores inside the particles. This pore system leads to a large internal surface area
