New Compact TOC Analyzer Protects Pure And Ultrapure Water Quality

Swiss instrument manufacturer, Swan Analytical, has announced the launch of a new compact version of its AMI LineTOC monitor for pure and ultrapure water applications. The AMI LineTOC Compact Version provides reagent-free measurement of total organic carbon (TOC) by UV oxidation and differential conductivity detection. With a fast response time of under two minutes, the device offers a wide measurement range from 0 to 1000 ppb with a resolution of 0.01 ppb in its lowest range. Organic contaminants in pure and ultrapure water represent a significant threat to product quality and process efficiency in a wide variety of industries. If undetected, organic contaminants can also encourage the growth of microorganisms. In the semiconductor industry, organic contamination causes defects in

Cool Gauge Takes HTF Monitoring To New Heights

The control and monitoring of heat transfer fluid (HTF) levels is ensuring the reliability of a critical adiabatic process cooling system at a major aerospace engineering company. A Cool Gauge RT-100 in-line monitoring system from Climalife (UK) was installed in 2021 in an adiabatic cooling system that was originally installed in 2018. It supplies cooled heat transfer fluid to critical manufacturing and process machinery (some of which are over 50 years old) and is approximately 32,000 litres in volume. The current system replaced a previous adiabatic system that had suffered extensive and irreparable damage – mostly in the form of leaks due to corrosion. There is no back up for this critical cooling system, so concise system control and protection was considered vital if production was to

Solar Desalination Via Photovoltaic-Thermal Energy

UK researchers have proposed the use of photovoltaic-thermal energy for desalination purposes, via an approach based on synergistic electro-thermal coupling mechanisms. They have found that some system configurations could offer a lower levelized cost of desalinated water, in addition to higher efficiencies. A research team in the United Kingdom has looked at how the combination of photovoltaics and solar thermal (ST) energy could improve the efficiency and viability of different solar desalination processes. The scientists said their work builds on past research showing the advantage of combining PV and solar thermal energy for desalination purposes. “However, most previous PVT-desalination studies to-date have focused on the development of system integration solutions between
