Primary Wastewater Treatment: Influent Monitoring
The raw sewage entering a wastewater treatment plant comes from a variety of sources. In addition to effluent from domestic users, effluent from industrial users and storm water run off can be present.
The Importance Of Measuring Total Organic Carbon
Organic carbon compounds vary greatly. In fact, one of the first lessons in most introductory Organic Chemistry courses explains that the number of possible carbon compounds is virtually infinite due to carbon’s ability to form long, chain-like molecules. While chromatographic methods like gas chromatography (GC) or high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) are able to make quantitative determinations for specific compounds, the user must first know which specific compounds to look for.
Application Note: Preliminary Performance Study On An On-Line TOC Analyzer In Pharmaceutical Applications
Total Organic Carbon (TOC) analysis is an effective technique for detecting and measuring the presence of organic contaminants in waters used throughout industrial processes, municipal water uses, and for determining residual concentrations of organic material on the surfaces of equipment used in the manufacture of active pharmaceutical ingredients.

Improving Compliance Through Real-Time Phosphorus Control
Levels of phosphorus, a chemical element that promotes organic growth, must be controlled in wastewater coming from beverage, food and dairy processing plants. Failure to control phosphorus accurately has a negative impact on water quality and can lead to large fines.
Degassing Sea Water Has Never Been This Compact, Efficient, And Adaptable
3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors offer a modular skid option for off-shore oil platforms that is significantly smaller and lighter than traditional vacuum towers.
Application Note: Small Team Saves Big Hassles With The Professional Plus Multiparameter Instrument
In the past, Shinkle and her colleagues carried separate YSI meters
for pH and DO, she notes. Now they use the YSI Professional Plus
handheld multiparameter instrument, which allows them to measure
pH, DO and temperature with one quick, reliable instrument. By YSI
Improved Efficiencies In TOC Wastewater Analysis For Standard Method 5310B And EPA Method 415
Total organic carbon (TOC) measurement is of vital importance to the operation of water treatment due to organic compounds comprising a large group of water pollutants. TOC has been around for many years, and although it is a relatively simple analysis in theory, operational efficiency is paramount.
Air / Gas Mass Flow Meter Improves Wastewater Treatment Processing Efficiency
One of the most common processes in wastewater treatment is the activated sludge method, which biologically treats the wastewater through the use of large aeration basins. This process requires the pumping of compressed air into the aeration basins where a diffuser system ensures the air is distributed evenly for optimum treatment. The energy needed to provide compressed air is a significant cost in the operation of a wastewater treatment plant.
A Comparative Study Of On-Line And Laboratory TOC Analyzers For Analysis Of Municipal Wastewater
This application note presents comparative data obtained on influent and effluent wastewater samples using laboratory and on-line TOC analyzers employing the heated sodium persulfate oxidation technique in USEPA-approved methods 415.3 and SM 5310C.
