Air/gas flow meter

Air/gas flow meter

The ST51 Air/Gas Flow Meter supports the US EPA’s BACT (Best Available Control Technology) practices, which require technologies that achieve the maximum degree of emissions control that can be achieved by a particular facility and is based on a case-by-case decision that takes into account technical feasibility, cost and other energy, environmental and economic impacts. FCI designed the ST51 Flow Meter to measure and monitor GHG per the EPA’s requirements.  It features a thermal mass, insertion-style flow element with flow accuracy to ±1% of reading over a broad flow range from 0.3 to 400 SFPS  (0.08 to 122 MPS), and repeatability of ±0.5 percent of reading.  The flow element is available for use in line sizes from 2 to 24 inches (51 to 610 mm).  It operates over a wide turndown range of 100:1 and at temperatures from 0 to 250°F (-18 to 121°C). It withstands pressures up to 500 psig [34 bar (g)].

Efficient odour removal

Efficient odour removal

Parkson Corporation offers the OHxyPhogg, an odour removal technology with a patented air atomizing three-fluid nozzle. The OHxyPhogg combines ozone, water and air creating 5-micron-sized oxidant-enriched water particles that efficiently disperse and fill partially or fully enclosed spaces such as lift stations, wet wells, holding tanks and headworks. The oxidant fog rapidly and efficiently reacts with H2S and other reduced sulfur compounds removing the unpleasant odours. The OHxyPhogg technology also aggressively and effectively breaks down fats, oils and greases, virtually eliminating not only the buildup but the costly pumping and discharging of FOGs.

Dust control for the jobsite

Dust control for the jobsite

Dust at work sites can decrease visibility, shorten the life of equipment and most importantly expose workers to numerous health risks. The Dust Destroyer uses a Yanmar, 4TNV98T-ZNSA, EPA Tier III compliant, four cylinder, 80HP continuous duty diesel engine at 2200RPM.  It projects tiny droplets of water into the air removing dust which helps with safety, health, and environmental problems on construction, demolition and scrap sites. The dust suppression machine projects 20-250 feet of water with 27,000 sq. ft. of coverage, ranging from 0-75 feet high and 0-60 degrees of oscillation with additional options, including booster pump and chemical odour control.  The range, power, and safety (diesel engine, no electrical issues) of The Dust Destroyer makes it a leading dust control system.
