We expected great results from these units," said Electrocorp's sales, merchandising and design consultant, Henri Chero, "but a reduction of up to 90% of H2S levels is truly exciting.
In the first group, 24 rats were put into a controlled atmosphere of room air laced with 300 parts per million H2S while 13 served as controls.
Photo Caption: The NTMOS hydrogen sulfide gas sensor from Detector Electronics Corporation detects low concentrations of H2S in five seconds or less.
Patients with rheumatoid arthritis were found to have higher concentrations of H2S in their synovial fluid.
The new Picarro G1104 H2S analyzer is compact and rugged with no moving parts, making it ideal for use in a wide range of sensing applications, operating equally well as a remote unattended monitor or as a state-of-the-art laboratory instrument.
The research team investigated the role of H2S in endotoxic shock, which causes a fatal loss of blood pressure and extensive tissue inflammation.
But evidence suggests that H2S is not generated if the landfill is operated properly, and may never even make an appearance.
Two (2) each Gas 34L-413-18-34-L Quad Gas 18% 02, 50 PPM C0,50% LEL CH4 and 10PPM H2S
In 2011, it is estimated that approximately 40 per cent, or 2600 trillion cubic feet (tcf), of the world's natural gas reserves are in the form of sour gas, where H2S and CO2 compositions exceed 10 per cent in volume of the raw produced acid gas, says an Exova spokesman.
Using a patented, high efficiency gas-liquid contacting process, H2S is absorbed and the gas is purified for use in power generation facilities, and other heating applications such as heat for tomato greenhouses.
There seems little doubt that if not handled properly, H2S, which has a rotten egg smell even at low doses and can be harmful to human health at very high (but rare) concentrations, can occur with this type of ADC, or any waste stream where it is contained, including regular C&D debris.
Microbiologically-influenced corrosion (MIC) in this sector is usually linked to souring of oil fields due to production of toxic and corrosive H2S by sulfate-reducing bacteria (SRB).
