|Air / Gas Mass Flow Meter Improves Wastewater Treatment Processing Efficiency
In this segment from Virtual Water Expo, Adam Schleyhahn from Fluid Components International presents on reliable gas flow measurement in water and wastewater.
In this excerpt from Virtual Water Expo, FCI will examine air/gas flow measurement challenges that are commonly found in WTP and WWTP processes.
No matter whether consumers choose a pilsner, an ale, or another popular type of beer, there is a critical focus at nearly all breweries today on their production process energy (natural gas) costs and plant environmental compliance (waste gas emissions). Failing to pay attention to the efficiency of these processes at breweries or any other type of food and beverage processing plant can lead to cost competitiveness issues and hefty regulatory fines.
In all electric power generation plants (gas, solar, coal or nuclear), the fuel source of choice heats a large boiler, which creates steam that drives turbine blades to rotate. The turbine shaft in turn spins magnets inside the generator, which induces an electrical current in a coil of wires. It’s a high-temperature process both in terms of the boilers and steam, but also at the back end of the process where the electric current generates a large amount of heat that must be managed in order to keep the generator’s wire coils cool enough to avoid degradation or failure. Depending on the MVA size of the generator, hydrogen (H2), air or water is typically used to provide cooling.
Refinery Improves Boiler Air-To-Fuel Mixture Performance With Help From Multipoint Thermal Flow Meter
A major oil refinery’s plant team ran into challenging issues when they attempted to optimize their large primary boiler system, which initially perplexed the plant’s process engineers. After extensive study, it was determined there was a problem controlling the boiler’s burner air-to-fuel mixture ratio.
The Wet Gas MASSter sensor is for use in applications that have a high level of moisture or condensation present in the gas flow stream that cannot otherwise be removed.
Busy municipal water engineers will find that the new Water and Wastewater Treatment Guide from Fluid Components International explains how to optimize flow measurement in 20 different municipal applications.
