Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is an extremely strong oxidizer widely used in bleaching applications in the paper industry. It has also been used in a variety of applications including disinfection, odor control, oxygenation, and cyanide oxidation. It is frequently used in wastewater collection systems to remove hydrogen sulfide that destroys concrete pipes and manhole structures. Peroxide applications in aqueous systems, like most chemical treatment processes, function most efficiently with accurate measurement and control.
ATI’s Model Q46/84 Hydrogen Peroxide Monitor is designed to continuously measure the concentration of H2O2 in aqueous systems. Using a direct peroxide sensor, the unit responds rapidly to changes in concentration, enabling operators to control chemical feed to maintain specific targets. With both digital and analog communications available, the Q46 is adaptable to a wide variety of peroxide monitoring applications.
Hydrogen Peroxide sensors are amperometric devices isolated from the water by a peroxide permeable membrane. As peroxide diffuses through this membrane, it comes in contact with an active electrode and is oxidized on the surface. The net effect is that the sensor generates a current proportional to H2O2 concentration. An integral RTD in the sensor provides for automatic temperature compensation, allowing the sensor to operate accurately over a range of 0-50°C.
Peroxide sensors are capable of operating over a fairly broad concentration range, from a low range of 0-2 PPM up to a high range of 0-200 PPM. Systems will operate with good sensitivity down to 0.05 PPM and respond to changes in concentration within about 60 seconds, making them useful for automatic control.
Hydrogen Peroxide sensors require a steady flow of sample across the membrane at the tip of the sensing assembly. ATI offers options for flowcells, including the standard constant-head overflow system, and a sealed flowcell for pressures up to 50 PSI. For simplicity of installation, complete flow control assemblies are available. Panel assemblies are available with or without a flow switch and can greatly reduce installation time.

Around the world, extreme wave heights and ocean winds are increasing. The greatest increase is happening in the Southern Ocean, according to recent research from the University of Melbourne , and Dr. Ian Young corresponded with EM about what inspired the work.
“Our main interest is ocean waves, and we are interested in wind because it generates waves,” explains Dr. Young. “Ocean waves are important for the design of coastal and offshore structures, the erosion of beaches and coastal flooding, and the safety of shipping.”
Waves also have a role in determining how much heat, energy and gas can be trapped in the ocean.
“The major reason why changes in wave height may be important is because of sea level rise,” details Dr. Young.Read More
All year long the US Geological Survey (USGS) in North Dakota and South Dakota monitors water levels, but during times of flooding, all eyes are on the team. EM spoke to USGS data chief Chris Laveau about the monitoring efforts.
“The US Geological Survey in North Dakota and South Dakota is one entity, so we monitor the flooding in both states,” explains Mr. Laveau. “The role is to provide continuous information on water level, we call that gauge height or stage, and we also provide continuous information at a lot of locations on stream flow, typically called discharge. We do that year round but, obviously, during a flood event it garners more attention.Read More
Say the word “tsunami” and images of tremendous waves engulfing homes or masses of debris might come to mind. Those tsunamis that are triggered by massive landslides and earthquakes are in fact at that scale.
But weather can trigger more localized “meteotsunamis” as well, and new research shows just how common these are along the East Coast of the United States. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) physical oceanographer Gregory Dusek of the National Ocean Service in Silver Spring, Maryland, spoke with us about the work.
“The public noticed the 2013 tsunami event, we did a report summarizing that event in our office, and we started wondering how frequently these actually occur,” explains Dr. Dusek.Read More
