    Hydroponics

    `A technique of growing plants in nutrient solution”. Hydroponics literally means water-working or water-activation. It is a cultivation technique for growing plants in highly oxygenated, nutrient enriched water, rather than soil. The nutrient solution and its management are the cornerstone for a successful hydroponics system. The function of a hydroponics nutrient solution is to supply the plant roots with water, oxygen and essential mineral elements in soluble form. In soil, biological decomposition breaks down organic matter into basic nutrients that plants feed on. Water dissolves these nutrients which allows uptake by the roots. For a plant to receive a well balanced diet, everything in the soil must be in perfect balance.

  • Rapid Determination of Pesticides in Spinach

    Highly pigmented foods, such as spinach, require cleanup prior to analysis for pesticide residues. A dual-layer SPE tube containing graphitized carbon and aminopropyl on silica (NH2) is often used because; Carbon removes pigments and sterols and NH2 removes fatty acids, polar pigments, organic acids, and sugars. Removing these matrix materials reduces interferences that can lead to ion suppression in LC-MS, inlet contamination in GC-MS, and column contamination for both techniques. Our Supel Sphere Carbon/NH2 SPE tube uses spherical materials for both the carbon and NH2 layers, providing fast, more consistent flows compared to tubes containing granular material. This allows gravity elution (instead of vacuum elution) to be applied to Supel Sphere tubes, resulting in more contact time between extracts and sorbents.

  • Improved Recovery of the Fungicide Carbendazim

    Fungicide carbendazim can some times be used to combat mold on citrus fruits including oranges. Recently, low residue levels of the fungicide were reported to be present in the bulk orange juice import shipments to the USA. Because this compound can persist through processing steps and may be found in the final consumer product, many government agencies have established maximum residue limits (MRLs) to ensure the safety of their population. Presented here is a single method, involving fast and effective QuEChERS cleanup, suitable for various orange juice matrices. The choice of PSA/C18 sorbents reduced interferences, resulting in greater recoveries and less ion-suppression. Because the QuEChERS method is fast, it only adds a few minutes to the sample preparation procedure. Sample processing using QuEChERS with PSA/C18 allows analysts to accurately process various matrices in a single workflow, with very little additional sample preparation time.

  • Geomembranes for Shrimp Farming Ponds

    Intensive commercial shrimp farming began in the late 1960s led in part by technological advances and growing market demand. Today, shrimp farming is so intensive (in some cases close to 300 000 shrimps per hectare) that it requires industrially prepared shrimp feeds, fertilizing the ponds to stimulate the growth of organisms, aeration to prevent oxygen depletion and regular tidal water exchange.  Solmax geomembranes have been used in some of the largest shrimp pond projects in the world. There are several key benefits of lining shrimp ponds with geomembranes. Durable and robust, the HDPE surface prevents weeds, grasses, mud and other obstructive contaminants from entering the pond.  The HDPE substrate is known to reduce the suitability of the environment for bacteria thereby reducing the need for antibiotics. Geomembranes can also protect the slopes and banks from erosion and allow for easy detection and rapid removal of sediment and waste products.

    Here are several factors to consider when deciding which type of geomembrane to use in a Shrimp Pond application:

    • Stress crack resistance
    • Tensile and elongation properties
    • Tear and puncture resistance
    • Duration of the project
    • U.V exposure

  • CONDOMINIUM REPLACES WATER SOFTENER WITH GREEN SCALEWATCHER WATER CONDITIONER

    Angel*Haus Condominium, a condo community in Purgatory’s Durango Mountain Resort, Colorado, has replaced its water softener with the computerized, electronic, water-conditioner Scalewatcher from Scalewatcher North America. By installing Scalewatcher, the condominum has improved the water quality, removed the need to buy and store salt and substantially reduced its water costs. Angelhaus Condominium is a modernised 40 unit building containing individually owned one, two and three bedroom units. Located at the base of the Durango Mountain Resort and less than 200 yards from the base lifts, the units are primarily rented out by their owners for skiing and walking vacations. The managing agents were spending around $100 a month on salt for the condominium’s water softener in addition to a further $200 to $700 for regular maintenance to calibrate the unit. Despite this expenditure, owners regularly complained about the poor water quality. “I would also have to spend time and effort hauling the salt downstairs to where the softener was located and I was also conscious we were flushing water down the drain”, said Sarelyn Saint, Managing Agent at Angel*Haus Condominium. Looking for an alternative solution for Angel*Haus Condominiums’ hard water problem, Sarelyn Saint decided to investigate the Scalewatcher system. After presenting the information to his board it was decided to install a Scalewatcher unit onto the main water line. “We had a board meeting just two months after the system was installed and our board members mentioned that they could tell the difference with the water, particularly the dishes and taste of the water”, concluded Sarelyn Saint. “We no longer have to budget for water treatment but best of all I don’t even have to think about it anymore and neither do the owners”. Condos are often on a shared water or loop system, with the pipes running from one unit to the next or are all fed off of a main valve. In hard water areas, scale quickly builds up in pipes and water fed applicances meaning that the water supply has to be regularly turning off for maintenance. Shutting off the service to one unit often means shutting off the service to all the units for work to be carried out. To alleviate the problems, many condominiums purchase water softeners. However, water softeners use copious amounts of both water and salt, which are expensive to buy and salt is also bulky to store. In addition, in many States now, including Southern California, municipalities and water departments are severely limiting, and in some cases prohibiting, the use of salt-regenerating water softeners due to concern regarding the increased levels of salt in ground water. The award-winning Scalewatcher system not only helps building managers meet these regulations by minimizing salt usage but also saves money on salt purchase and has the additional benefit of removing scale from water-fed equipment. The environmentally friendly Scalewatcher provides a permanent solution to hard water problems without the need of chemicals, salt or maintenance. It works by producing a varying electronically applied force field, induced by a coil wrapped around the outside of the pipework, which keeps the minerals in suspension and thus prevents limescale forming. The water’s increased solubility enables it to dissolve existing scale, which is gradually washed away. Scalewatcher models are based on continuous research and over 20 years experience and expertise as market leaders in electronic scale control with countless units sold worldwide. The patented Scalewatcher systems start at $248.00 USD and are capable of treating pipe sizes from one to 120 inches. All Scalewatcher systems come with a full performance guarantee and include free shipping throughout North America
