soil-water potential Applications

  • Drinking water solutions for the DBP formation potential

    Problem: Drinking water plants that use chlorine for disinfection must ensure organic matter is removed before chlorination to limit the formation of harmful disinfection by-products (DBPs), most commonly Trihalomethanes (THMs) and Haloacetic acids (HAA5).

  • Soil Analysis for Agriculture and Soils

    Field portable spectrometers are widely used for geologic remote sensing and mineral analysis applications. Recently, geologists have recognized that these same methods of reflectance spectroscopy have far reaching applications beyond remote sensing. Increasingly more applications in the geological science disciplines are surfacing, such as determining the composition of clay-rich soils for swell potential, and assessment and monitoring quality in cement manufacturing throughout the entire process—from characterizing raw materials, to quantitative analysis of the ground cement product, on through quality control of the materials entering the `feeder` and molten clinker (the apparatus used in the final cement product).

    Fertilizers boosting soil productivity for agriculture sector

    The principle fertilisers used to boost soil productivity are phosphate based. Monoammonium Phosphate (MAP) and Diammonium phosphate (DAP) are used for their ability to deliver Nitrogen and Phosphorus (both macronutrients) to soil as solid fertilisers. Phosphate rock is the raw material for production and is extracted from large deposits across Florida, the Southern Mediterranean into the Middle East (namely Morocco and Saudi Arabia) and on into Russia and China. To this rock, sulfuric acid is added producing phosphoric acid. This acid is then reacted with ammonia and elemental sulfur producing a sulfur enhanced fertiliser. During this process, the dust produced can potentially reach explosive levels.

    Erosion control solutions for the hydraulic applications/seeding areas

    Hydraulic Erosion Control Products (HECPs) are engineered mulch applied to slopes to reduce soil erosion while assisting in the establishment and growth of vegetation. An alternative to temporary Erosion Control Blankets (ECBs), hydraulically applied products can be installed up to three times faster using one-third the manpower. North American Green`s HECPs are applied in a one-step application with seed and fertilizer, with the potential for quicker installation and project cost savings compared to products requiring a two-step application. With our selection of HydraMax Systems HECPs, we can help you comply with the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) effluent guidelines.
