  • Measuring CO2 to Optimise the Bulk Storage of Food

    Meeting the food requirements of a growing global population is becoming increasingly difficult. Despite the need for additional food, it is estimated that 50-60% of grain is lost after harvesting, at a cost of about $1 trillion per year.1 One of the major reasons for lost grain is spoilage due to mould or insect infestation during storage.2 To provide a ...

  • Measurement of the amount of DissolvedOxygen

    Dissolved Oxygen (DO) is the term used for the measurement of the amount of oxygen dissolved in a unit volume of water. In water quality applications, such as aquaculture (including fish farming) and waste water treatment, the level of DO must be kept high. For aquaculture if the DO level falls too low the fish will suffocate. In sewage treatment, bacteria decompose the solids. If the DO ...

  • Olive Processing

    Problem: The aerated ponds were producing a foul odor & the chloride content of the aquifer was increasing to a level endangering the water quality. Solution: A Hydrocal CAF system is installed to treat the pit water only. This stream, which aligns the olives to be pitted, is highly contaminated with oil, grease, and ruptured olive tissue. The separate ...

  • Boost grain preservation before production

    Better grain storage would save money and feed over a billion, says Digvir S. Jayas. It deserves more attention. Annually over 2.6 billion tonnes of grains — cereals, oilseeds and pulses — are grown and then stored along the chain from producers to consumers. Most countries do not systematically report how much grain becomes unfit for human consumption during storage, but ...
