Overview

MSE is a leader in the field of plasma technology for military waste treatment including ordnance waste. Our group develops and deploys technologies to resolve Department of Energy, Department of Defense, and commercial waste problems. We provide complete plasma services and testing facilities including mobile units.

Plasma technology uses the intense heat of an electric arc to treat the most difficult waste such as nuclear waste, military waste, and chemical waste. The intense heat of the plasma arc destroys all organic constituents and immobilizes all inorganic constituents into an extremely stable glassy slag.

Involved in developing plasma technology since 1989, we offer equipment and experience that few other companies can. We have deployed two plasma waste treatment systems for the U.S. Army -- one in Nevada and the other in West Virginia. We designed, built, and tested these systems at our test facility, the MSE Mike Mansfield Advanced Technology Center. At our plasma test facility, we have successfully tested U.S. pyrotechnic devices, hazardous waste, and simulated nuclear waste. We have also performed offgas emissions testing following EPA protocols.

Master System

Our MC3000 SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) Master is a multi-user, real-time HMI/SCADA solution for hydro and substation automation, communications monitoring, and plant control. It collects valuable data from a wide variety of devices, including substation computers, Remote Terminal Units (RTUs), Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), and Intelligent Electronic Devices (IEDs). The program is ideally suited for small to large sized monitoring and control projects that require reliability, performance, and scalability. The MC3000 SCADA Master is reliable, fast, secure, easy to use, and expandable for future needs.

Protocol Translator

The PT3000 receives information from the IEDs at your sites, translates it to a common protocol, and then transmits the data to a master. It translates a variety of protocols, and you can connect it to one or more masters. A single PT3000 can translate as many as 18 different protocols, and you can multidrop units to add more protocols.

WinTetraVision Interface

WTV-32 is a Graphical User Interface, (GUI) or Human Machine Interface (HMI) software solution that turns a PC into a user-friendly interface for a SCADA system. GUI is a type of user interface that allows people to interact with a computer and computer-controlled devices. Whether you call it a GUI or HMI, with our WTV you can view, operate, and control functions and features for the MSE-Tetragenics systems - MC3000 SCADA Master, Hydro or Plant Control Systems, or Remote Terminal Units (RTUs) - either locally or remotely.

Remote Terminal Units

Remote Terminal Units (RTUs) provide a direct interface between field sensors, actuators, devices, and the central processing station or control center master. An RTU includes the required signal processing, communication software, and web-based technologies to enable effective control and monitoring of various systems. We offer a variety of Remote Units to suit your industry and requirements.

A Class Leader

MSE is intimately familiar with industrial waste areas and cleanup - our headquarters are located near a superfund site and from 1991 to 2007 we managed the Mine Waste Technology Program for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to advance cleanup technologies.

Successful projects include soil and groundwater projects involving Mercury, treatments for the deep vadose zone, Zero Valent Iron (ZVI) barrier repair, Technetium (99Tc) Ion Exchange Skids, and waste processing projects involving sorbent testing.

  • Laboratory scale to intermediate scale to field implementation
  • Test designs, plans, and reporting

  • Commissioning and test activity
  • Project planning and project management (project managers certified by Project Management Institute)

Mercury Soil Treatment

At Oak Ridge Building 81-10, MSE combined DOE developed ceramic cement formulations with a mercury treatment reagent incorporated for a jet grouting process to use as a soil grouting and chemical stabilization technology for deployment in the subsurface at Building 81-10 at the Y-12 Plant. Numerous combinations of the material components were tested at the bench scale to determine the most effective combination of components for both injection and stabilization. This combination was tested at intermediate-scale by the use of jet grouting in the subsurface at the MSE Test Facility. The jet grouted volume was excavated to analyze the emplacement of the grout mixture.

F-Canyon PUREX

Three commercially available sorbent materials were identified by the Savannah River Site (SRS) for MSE to test for the solidification of F-Canyon PUREX waste. In all, 10,000 gallons were successfully solidified and shipped to the Nevada Test Site for disposal.

Technetium (99Tc) Ion Exchange

MSE performed bench-scale ion-exchange resin testing to determine which resin would provide superior 99Tc removal. MSE then designed, fabricated, and installed two temporary 99Tc ion-exchange skids that were effective at removing the 99Tc from groundwater.

Zero Valent Iron (ZVI) Barrier Repair

MSE performed bench-scale testing to characterize several different ZVIs. The most effective of these materials were further tested at intermediate scale in both a radial flow apparatus and long columns to determine the effects of several injection parameters. This knowledge was applied during the field-scale application of the technology for repair of the In Situ Redox Manipulation Barrier at the 100-D Area of the Hanford Site (post-injection testing (geophysics and groundwater analysis) was performed after installation of the barrier). Additional geochemical and column injection testing is ongoing for different ZVI products.
