UniSA scientists have discovered a simple way to remove bacteria and other contaminants from water using tiny particles of pure silica coated with an active nano-material.
The FloPro Series 3 uses ultrasonic technology to measure water flows practically anywhere. Insertion probes can be used to measure flow in full pipes or strap-mounted sensors do the job in partially full pipes or channels, making it suitable for wastewater plants.
The Dimension 4i from LDS Test and Measurement is a data acquisition system that combines high-speed, gap-free data recording with real-time FFT analysis. The time and frequency domain system brings together the technologies of Nicolet, Gould and Dactron.
A UK water-company project is using natural elements such as bark, wood chips, seaweed and seashells lining water-filled tanks to provide a solution to a smelly problem - the unpleasant odour that can come from wastewater treatment works
The ST series flowmeter is designed for rugged environments typically found in the oil/gas, chemical, electric power, pulp/paper and wastewater treatment industries and applications. Its no moving parts, non-clogging flow sensing element provides direct mass flow output and features built-in temperature compensation. It is suitable for use in a wide range of process and plant gas applications, including compressed air, hydrocarbon gases and inert gases. The ST98 flowmeter has a reliable thermal mass flow sensor in a smart electronics package. It operates over a wide flow range from 0.21 to 172 NMPS in air with a standard flow accuracy of ±1% of reading, ±0.5% of full scale. It is suitable for a wide range of air/gas flow measurement applications, including natural gas or methane monitoring, compressed air metering, industrial HVAC systems, nitrogen blanketing and combustion air.
The Isco 4700 refrigerated sampler for municipal and industrial wastewater applications features a powerful ½ hp compressor with software-controllable temperature settings. The controller displays the sample compartment temperature and logs a 24 h summary to confirm proper cooling and sample preservation.
A study conducted on the effluent stream at Department of Primary Industry's dairy, Ellibank in Victoria, has provided a better understanding on how to improve the potential for energy recovery, energy savings, water and nutrient recovery
Two Australian research centres are joining their forces in a radical approach to biofilm control.
A combination of biotechnologies has been used to design sensors that can detect the presence of pathogenic organisms or chemical contamination in water, food, industrial or point-of-care situations in less than six hours.
Australia’s Cooperative Research Centre for Contamination Assessment and Remediation of the Environment (CRC CARE) and the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur (IITK) have joined forces on research and training for contamination risk assessment and clean-up.
Sumitomo has released a range of PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) membranes designed for water microfiltration and sewage treatment. The MBR (membrane bioreactor) module is suitable for water purification applications such as recycling water for farming and gardening, recycled drinking water, sewage wastewater treatment and recycled industrial water.
Biolytix has been announced as the biggest mover on the â€˜Q400 Listâ€™ of Queenslandâ€™s leading private companies, surging past 95 other businesses.
