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

Ultraviolet Linear LED Light for Sterilization

Our health is the most important thing to us! Right?… The quality of the air we breathe, and the cleanliness of the surfaces we touch have a profound impact on our health. We are surrounded daily by the risk of contracting and spreading viruses/bacteria. We have been made more aware of this recently with the present state of the COVID-19 pandemic. It is vital that we keep our workspaces such as instruments, electronic shops, laboratories, and high traffic areas sanitized and safe. Today, we will be discussing a highly effective method to accomplish this common goal using Horner Automation’s Ultra-Violet

A Low Temperature, Safe, and Effective Way to Sterilize Reusable Medical Devices and Equipment

Steam is by far the most common method of medical sterilization used in the U.S today. High temperatures produced by steam are not compatible with all materials and it has other disadvantages. The most prominent low temperature sterilization method currently used is ethylene oxide. EO is a relatively dangerous and toxic material. Vaporized Hydrogen Peroxide: H2O2 has many advantages including low toxicity, low temperature, and relatively good material compatibility. There are several methods in use today this article discusses HPV or hydrogen peroxide vaporization. Using A Controlled Evaporation Mixer To Deliver The Vaporized Hydrogen Peroxide A Controlled Evaporative Mixer or

Application about leak detection with our Kayden switch

The Problem: Pumps require a form of mechanical seal, these seals will eventually break down and leak. Determining the point of failure is achieved by routine monitoring of the seal. Seal leak can be tolerated by directing the fluid into a recovery system by use of a drain line that directs the fluid into a storage container. How is it determined when the leak is occurring and to what degree? The Kayden CLASSIC 800 Series Flow, Level, Interface and Temperature Switch/Transmitter will help you determine whether or not to shut down the pump or send out a maintenance crew to

Catalytic treatment of volatile organic compounds

Jean-Francois Lamonier, a lecturer/researcher at the University of Lille, is an expert in the the catalytic treatment of volatile organic compounds (VOCs).  He leads the ‘Remediation and Catalytic Materials’ (REMCAT) research team in the Laboratory of Catalysis and Solid State Chemistry (UCCS), which specializes in the catalytic removal of atmospheric pollutants emitted by both fixed and mobile  sources (such as factories and vehicles, respectively). In this blog post, he tells us about his research and explains how his team uses measuring instruments and flow controllers. Focus areas for the REMCAT research team REMCAT (Remediation and Catalytic Materials) research team of

Controlled CO2 supply for algae cultivation

Our guest blogger is Dr Jornt Spit. He’s a researcher at the Radius research group at Thomas More University of Applied Sciences in Belgium, and has a background in biochemistry and biotechnology. The Radius researchers are working on renewable biomass, involving the cultivation of algae and insects that are then processed into valuable raw materials for a bio-based economy. As part of their research activities, they use Bronkhorst mass flow controllers to enable precision flow of carbon dioxide. CO2: a valuable alternative carbon source In recent years, carbon dioxide (CO2) has been steadily attracting attention as a valuable source of

What Role Do Flow Meters Play in Processing Sugar Beets

We seem to really love sugary snacks, like candy, soda, cookies, and cake. There is common denominator here, sugar. All these products contain sugar which make them taste delicious. But the question is where does this sugar come from? Plants make sugar through the process of photosynthesis. Of all the plants, sugar beets and sugar cane contain the greatest quantities of sugar; that’s why these two plants are chosen to extract sugar. In this article we want to focus on the process of sugar extraction in sugar beets and how the role that Bronkhorst flow meters have in this process.

Aeration in fish farming

Fish consumption is rising. With the increase of the world population and the need for nutritious food, health-conscious are looking for alternatives to “a nice slice of meat”. And they end up eating more fish or vegetarian food. Specific species of wild fish are getting more and more scarce in open water due to the huge impact of industrialized fishing fleets and over-fishing. The sea can not provide the increasing demand. Fortunately, in a trend towards sustainable food production, fish farming is gaining increasingly in interest. Fish Farming Fish farming is the aquatic peer of farming cows, sheep, or chicken.
