Water and Wastewater Solutions For The Power Generation Industry

  1. Saving Texas’ Water Through Smart Energy Choices In 2016
    1/19/2016

    2015 proved to be another weird weather year around the country, especially for Texas. 80 degrees and dry in Austin on Christmas Day, spring wildflowers in bloom, and kids playing outside in shorts — a surprise ending to a wild ride of drought followed by devastating floods followed by drought and then more floods.

  2. How To Fix High pH And Comply With The Clean Water Act
    2/19/2014

    When the Clean Water Act was enacted, one of the intentions of this legislation was to reduce the untreated industrial waste water burden on publically owned waste water treatment plants (POTW) so that industrial wastewater would only load the treatment plant to the same extent as ordinary household sanitary waste. Industrial facilities that generated process wastewater had to begin pre-treatment of the water before it could be returned to the local POTW.

  3. Oxygen Removal From Feedwater Of A Central District Heating System Using 3M Liqui-Cel
    2/18/2017

    A Netherlands power station installed 3M Liqui-Cel membrane contractors for O2 removal. This case study explains how the membrane system exceeded expectations, achieving oxygen removal down to 5 ppb.

  4. Selenium Removal Technologies: A Review
    1/15/2016

    Selenium, a contaminant of concern in industries such as mining, oil refining, and power generation, is removed from wastewater principally through either biological or chemical/physical processes. This article will describe those technologies, several technology providers, and other sources of information.

  5. Compressor Installation Lowers Energy Needs By 18%
    8/7/2014

    RWE uses three-low pressure centrifugal compressors from Atlas Copco in the Ibbenbüren power plant to generate oxidation air for the flue gas desulphurization installation.

  6. Changxing Power Plant Debuts The World’s First Forward Osmosis-Based Zero Liquid Discharge Application

    Desalination Technology Transforms 650 m3/day of Abused Industrial Wastewater

  7. SIPART PS2 Digital Positioner Used On Feedwater Valve
    6/2/2016

    A large power producer in the Northeast U.S. has a four unit power generation plant that operates on demand, based upon bid price to the area ISO. Plant efficiency and speed of response is crucial.

  8. Waste Heat Recovery For Desalination From Steam Power Plants
    4/17/2014

    Currently, in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia about 1.5 million barrels of oil are consumed daily to generate electricity to drive reverse osmosis desalination plants.  This represents about 15 percent of KSA’s daily oil production. 

  9. Increase Ink Jet Print Speeds By 15% With 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ SP Series Membrane Contactors
    6/30/2017

    Many high-speed, wide-format ink jet printer manufacturers are now using 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ SP Series Membrane Contactors to remove air bubbles and excess gases from ink to reduce downtime and improve yields. Entrained bubbles and excess gases are often the cause of printing surface defects and ink flow interruptions that can cause printer shut-downs.
