Dow Microbial Control has launched a new website and a comprehensive educational campaign called "Genuine Glutaraldehyde" intended to help customers distinguish glutaraldehyde from counterfeit product options while simultaneously promoting the benefits of glutaraldehyde. Introduced more than 60 years ago, glutaraldehyde is one of Dow's flagship molecules. This versatile microbiocide offers a host of advantages in applications ranging from high-level disinfection of medical equipment employed in healthcare settings to controlling microbes found in industrial operations such as oilfields and cooling towers to disinfecting poultry and swine facilities.

Growing Blue has launched the Water Impact Index (WIIX) Calculator, a new web-based tool designed to measure and reduce the impact of human activity on local water resources. Available online at the group's website, the new calculator was designed by Growing Blue founding partner Veolia Water. The calculator expands upon current volume-based water calculators by also taking into account water resource stress factors and water quality. Paired with a traditional cost analysis to identify the ideal return on investment, the calculator represents a truer measurement of impact on a local water resource.

Bearing fault frequencies
Ludeca has created normalized bearing information that contains approximated bearing fault frequencies without the need to know the manufacturer and other difficult to obtain bearing information. The data is available for download at http://bit.ly/JnVqnu. This information allows the analyst to correlate vibration data to specific components in the equipment that may be in some stage of failure. Correctly addressing these failure conditions will increase equipment reliability resulting in greater uptime, increased capacity, improved product quality, better safety, lower costs, and reduced risks.
