pH Probe Maintenance

February 10th, 2020|

Customer Type: All types Wastewater: All types requiring pH neutralization Equipment: Pan America Environmental EpH neutralization systems Pan America Environmental, Inc. provides pH neutralization systems and pH sensor maintenance is frequently required. pH Electrode Calibration Since glass pH electrodes measure H+ concentration relative to their reference half-cells, they must be calibrated periodically to ensure accurate, repeatable measurements. Commercial pH calibration buffer solutions are standardized against NIST certified pH references for calibrating meters with resolution up to 0.001 pH. Although calibration against one pH reference buffer (one-point calibration) typically ensures accurate pH measurement, frequent two-point or even [...]

ZeoMaxx PFAS Treatment

February 10th, 2020|

Customer Type: PFAS wastewater filter systems Wastewater: All types Equipment: Pan America Environmental ZeoMaxx Filtration Pan America Environmental, Inc. provides PFAS treatment. PFAS is a class of fluoronated chemicals. There are about 4700 chemicals in this class. About 600 are common. They are all man-made and contain linked chains of carbon and fluorine. These chemicals don't degrade easily in the environment as the atomic bond is the strongest in nature and are stable in water but are also fully soluble. Typical chemicals are perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS). Filtration Method The filtration [...]
