PSP® Acid Exhaust Duct Shines at Sandia National Labs

Posted by Mike Baranski on Mar 10, 2021 6:57:34 AM

Sandia National Laboratories Bldg. 858N SW Acid Exhaust

A recent acid exhaust project where we supplied our PSP® to JB Henderson for an installation at Sandia National Labs was recognized for "outstanding specialty work" in an occupied and operational facility.

The project called for more than 2,000 linear feet of PSP fluoropolymer coated stainless steel duct to replace the existing weathered and contaminated FRP duct system.

From Fab Safety to Lab Safety

Posted by Mike Baranski on Nov 4, 2020 2:27:32 PM

PSP® Coated Metal Fume Exhaust Duct Excels Across Industries

Operational demands and safety requirements have driven a clear need for more chemically resistant and fire resistant fume exhaust systems among advanced process facilities. Exhaust duct systems in these environments must be able to chemically withstand highly corrosive process fume exhaust, not contribute to smoke or flame-spread in the event of a fire, and still stand up to any external environmental conditions or aggressive cleaning agents to which they may be exposed over the course of their lifecycle.

Setting New Standards for WWTP Odor Control

Posted by Fab-Tech on Jun 26, 2020 9:17:00 AM

WhAT's Replacing FRP Duct on WWTP Odor Control Systems?

Traditionally, FRP duct has been the standard material for handling foul air exhaust in wastewater treatment plant odor control systems. Today however, as system longevity, overall fire safety, environmental footprint and ease of installation and maintenance play larger roles in system design specifications, WWTP's are increasingly turning to coated stainless steel for their odor control system needs.

Wastewater Odor Control: FRP Duct and the Circular Economy  Part 2

Posted by Fab-Tech on Dec 24, 2019 9:43:26 AM

An Assessment of Landfilled GFRP Composite Waste

As communities, municipalities and wastewater treatment facilities alike devote more and more resources toward mitigating hydrogen sulfide gas (H2S) as an industrial and environmental pollutant [1], the resultant foul-air systems and the materials from which they are constructed must be called into question.

Coated Stainless Steel versus FRP Duct On Sustainability

We are entering a new age, one where people are realizing that it’s possible to meet and exceed business financial goals and to still make progress in preserving our environment. This concept is taking hold in new and diverse ways across many commercial and industrial spheres. It's known as the circular economy.

You’ll be hearing this phrase more and more as its influence grows, but what exactly does it mean?

Odor Control in Wastewater Sludge Dewatering

Posted by Mike Baranski on Nov 18, 2019 12:26:00 PM

MULTIPLE METHODS FOR SLUDGE DEWATERING BUT ONLY ONE ODOR CONTROL SOLUTION

Sludge dewatering is the process of removing as much water as possible from wastewater and sewage sludge. The output of this process includes untreated water that will continue to be cleaned and purified (before being released and reused), and biosolids with drastically reduced liquid content, volume and mass.

The reduced mass and volume of the biosolid end-product makes it far easier to store or transport, being both lighter and with a far smaller footprint. It is then either land applied as agricultural fertilizer or sent to a landfill.

Importance of Ventilated Odor Control in Wastewater Biosolids Areas

Biosolids are a nutrient-rich organic material produced when sewage sludge is extracted from wastewater and treated with several processes, including one to reduce pathogens. It can have an organic matter content of up to 50% and is often used as an alternative to conventional fertilizer.

Wastewater Odor Control Technology & Methods

Posted by Mike Baranski on Sep 11, 2019 10:30:00 AM

4 Considerations for Wastewater Odor Control Technology

When odors from wastewater treatment facilities become problematic for surrounding communities, they have the potential to cause more headaches than simply an unpleasant smell. Depending on the severity of the foul air, locals may contact plant management to complain, or in more severe cases they may even reach out to local government or the media to make their complaints be known. If these odors begin to garner political or media attention it could hurt the reputation of the plant. Moreover, severe odors can impact job satisfaction and even the safety of on-site employees.

So, what can be done to control problem odors?
