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.
In The News
The public knows much more about Great Lakes coastal wetlands than it did ten years ago.
In those ten years, the information gathered through the Great Lakes Coastal Wetlands Monitoring Program has led to and supported dozens of advances in Great Lakes science while helping nail down the shifting nature of ecosystem health for a vital part of the Great Lakes system.
“I probably get one or two requests for information a week,” Don Uzarski, director of the program, told Environmental Monitor.
The program’s most recent semi-annual report lists 40 scientific publications using the collected data. In addition, the data has been used in even more restoration projects, graduate theses and presentations.Read More
You might be surprised to hear good news about the world’s oceans. The dominant narrative for years has been that the oceans’ sea life populations are on the brink of collapse.
But, according to research Ray Hilborn published in January in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the ocean’s fisheries are bouncing back, provided that they’re well managed.
“The bottom line is that if fisheries are managed they are sustainable,” Hilborn, a professor at the University of Washington’s school of aquatic and fisheries sciences, told Environmental Monitor.
New evidence of recovery
After two decades of recovering fish populations, many of the world’s fisheries are stable or recovering, Hilborn’s research shows.Read More
Thousands of lakes in the northeastern United States are at risk of chloride contamination.
In a 17-state area from Minnesota to Missouri to Maine, elevated chloride levels in some of the region’s nearly 50,000 lakes are driven largely by landscape features that are cleared of snow and ice by road salt in the winter.
“The biggest driver of increasing chloride concentrations in these lakes was road density and development. The more developed a watershed, the more likely you are to have roads and parking lots,” said Hilary Dugan, an assistant professor in the Center for Limnology at University of Wisconsin—Madison.
Dugan is the lead author on a study examining the issue recently published in Environmental Science and Technology .Read More
