With its advanced point infrared combustible gas sensing element, the new IR400 Combustible Gas Detector from General Monitors protects against explosive hydrocarbon gases with a low power design that installs in minutes. It features heated optics to eliminate condensation and includes a dirty optics indicator for fail safe operation. The detector continuously monitors combustible gases in the lower explosive limit (LEL) range and provides a 4-20 mA analog signal proportional to the 0 to 100% LEL concentration.

RTO packing

Click here to enlarge image

Koch Knight’s Flexeramic® ceramic structured packing is engineered to resist siloxane clogging and maximize RTO uptime. Coupled with biosolids driers, regenerative thermal oxidizers can be used to abate volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and odor. The structured packing is composed of corrugated ceramic sheets that are vertically aligned in the RTO bed, eliminating any horizontal surfaces that may create resistance to vapor flow. This geometric construction dramatically reduces the channeling of vapor and provides for more efficient contact of hot gases with the ceramic surface.

Pure Technologies recently expanded its services to the wastewater industry with the launch of its SmartBall technology for use in sewer force mains. The technology consists of an instrumented foam ball released into the water stream and allowed to traverse the pipeline with the flow. Instruments inside the ball record acoustic activity, which is then evaluated to determine the location and magnitude of leaks and air pockets. Within the past six months, three wastewater force mains have been surveyed using the SmartBall technology and five additional projects are slated to commence over the next several months.
