Water Treatment Methods There exist several mechanisms for water disinfection, including chlorination and chloramination, ozonation, and UV irradiation. Ordinarily, only one disinfection technique is used in a treatment train. However, there are potential benefits to combining water treatment methods in sequence, including energy and cost savings and a safer product water. Potential Benefits of Combination [...]
Origins of Blue Jeans and the Denim Manufacturing Process Two things made denim blue jeans revolutionary when they were invented by Jacob Davis and Levi Strauss in 1873. First, they were made from a sturdy material, denim, which Davis bought from Strauss. Second, Davis used a metal rivet at the points where pants most often [...]
Teaching pH in Schools and Colleges Chemistry is an important subject taught at schools, colleges and universities all around the world. One component of chemistry that is vitally important is pH — one of the key properties of any substance, which has widespread implications in industrial, pharmaceutical, and other commercial applications, such as food [...]
Environmental Impact of Stormwater Monitoring Stormwater runoff from industrial facilities can pose a threat to the environment, as precipitation may pick up pollutants and wash them into local water systems. The results can be devastating: habitat degradation, siltation of rivers and depletion of fish populations can all occur. Because of these risks, stormwater runoff [...]

The Importance of Aquarium Water Quality Like all organisms, the fish and aquatic plants in your aquarium rely on highly specific environments in order to survive. These essential conditions vary from species to species and depend on the environment in which they evolved. Aquarium Water pH pH measures the acidity or alkalinity of water. [...]
What's up with the green pool at the Rio 2016 Olympics? The Olympic diving pool was closed Friday morning, after the water turned green. According to a Rio 2016 spokesperson, diving training was cancelled in order to accommodate cleaning efforts to return the pool to its normal blue color. The pool water first turned [...]
Summary In all kinds of water steam cycles, the correct pH measurement in power plants play a key factor in corrosion risk surveillance. A measurement with a glass pH electrode is possible but requires a pH probe designed for low conductivity, high temperatures and pressure. An accurate pH value can also be obtained by measuring the [...]
This 15 minute webinar recording explains how produce wash water is monitored to ensure that fruits and vegetables are kept safe and clean.
All hydroponics gardens or operations are heavily dependent on nutrient solution to ensure proper plant growth. The plants in any system grow in a medium that provides no nutritional value, so having proper nutrient solution is vital to plant life. It is crucial that the nutrient solution is monitored and properly fed to the plants.
