QED Highlights E-Z Tray® Air Stripper for Removing VOCs from Contaminated Groundwater and Waste Streams

QED Environmental Systems, a leading manufacturer of innovative environmental products, announces the E-Z Tray® Air Stripper, a sliding tray, stainless steel air stripper ideal for removing volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from contaminated groundwater and waste streams. E-Z Tray's exclusive design results in very high removal efficiencies in an easier-to-maintain process unit.

QED Environmental Systems, a leading manufacturer of innovative environmental products, announces the E-Z Tray® Air Stripper, a sliding tray, stainless steel air stripper ideal for removing volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from contaminated groundwater and waste streams. E-Z Tray's exclusive design results in very high removal efficiencies in an easier-to-maintain process unit.

Offering numerous advantages over other air stripping methods, E-Z Tray provides easy access for process monitoring and inspection, even while in operation. It is less prone to fouling and can be cleaned by one person with a simple pressure wash. It is also less intrusive at a site and offers a wide turn-down range. Typical treatment costs range from $0.10 - $0.20 per 1,000 gallons of drinking water.
Air stripping with E-Z Tray is an effective way of removing trihalomethanes (THMs), which can form in drinking water when disinfectants like chlorine breaks down precursor organic compounds, normally organic solids. As contaminated groundwater enters through the top of the E-Z Tray air stripper, millions of air bubbles are forced by blower pressure up through the perforated trays. This creates a turbulent froth zone with an extremely high air-to-liquid surface area for mass transfer of VOCs from liquid to air. Using the froth instead of a conventional tower packing delivers high VOC removal efficiencies, even under fouling conditions. The EZ-Tray method is also easier to inspect and maintain than other alternatives.

Bitflow is the leader in CoaXPress

With the introduction of its Cyton and Karbon CXP frame grabbers, BitFlow has established itself as the leader in CoaXPress (CXP), a simple, yet powerful, standard for moving high speed serial data from a camera to a frame grabber. With CXP, video is captured at speeds of up to 6.25 Gigabits/Second (Gb/S). Simultaneously, control commands and triggers can be sent to the camera 20 Mb/S (with a trigger accuracy of +/- 2 nanoseconds). Up to 13 W of power can also supplied to the camera. All this happens over a single piece of industry standard 75 Ohm coaxial cable. Multiple CXP links can be aggregated to support higher data rates (e.g. four links provide 25 Gb/S of data). BitFlow CXP frame grabbers open the door to applications where cable cost, routing requirements and long distances have prevented the move to high resolution, high speed digital cameras. In many cases, existing coaxial infrastructure can be repurposed for CXP with very low installation costs.
