White Papers and Case Studies For The Power Generation Industry

  1. Nanofiltration And Membrane Degassing Successfully Reduce Water Hardness And Excess CO₂ From Drinking Water
    8/10/2017

    Municipal water services continually utilize improved technologies so that they can offer their customers higher water quality. Water can be improved by partially softening the water, which results in lower detergent consumption and lower scaling on kitchen utensils and water fittings.

  2. Using ‘TransMembraneChemiSorption’ (TMCS) For Ammonia Removal From Industrial Waste Waters
    7/4/2017

    Dissolved gases like NH3, H2S or NOx in waste water lead to contamination in the sewage system and high treatment costs for municipal waste water treatment plants. 

  3. Power Plant Converts To Combined Cycle Operation With The Help Of Thermal Mass Air / Gas Flow Meter
    6/18/2018

    During an upgrade project to install combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) technology, the process engineers at an electric power plant in Western Europe also wanted to maximize the efficiency of their existing gas fuel turbines while maintaining the highest safety levels. By optimizing the performance of both the existing gas fuel turbines and adding the new steam turbines, they hoped to add significantly more generating capacity.

  4. SuperDisc™ Filtration System Case Study
    12/28/2014

    Glendale Heights Wastewater Treatment Plant discharges treated water to the East Branch of the DuPage River in Illinois.

  5. CleanFlo™ Monoscreen® Case Study
    12/22/2014

    When the polar bears at the Brookfield Zoo were introduced to their new habitats at the Great Bear Wilderness, they had no idea how much more fulfilling their life would become.

  6. Hydro Schemes Have An Impact In Scotland
    6/17/2016

    At the end of 2011, the total hydroelectric installed capacity in the United Kingdom accounted for approximately 1.67 Gigawatts (GW) of installed electrical generating capacity, being 1.9% of the current total UK generating capacity, and 14% of the UK's renewable energy generating capacity.

  7. Desalinated Water Supply Helps Plant Meet Strict Environmental Regulations
    4/23/2018

    STX Heavy Industries, a Korean EPC, recently implemented a flue-gas desulfurization (FGD) system at a coal-fired power plant in Chile in order to comply with the country's strict environmental regulations. The FGD process requires large amounts of high-quality water. STX.

  8. Boiler Feed Water Pump Local Instrumentation — Necessity Or Nuisance?
    2/28/2017

    Anyone remember the old cars of the 1950s and 1960s? They all pretty much came equipped with an ammeter, an oil pressure gauge, a water temperature gauge, as well as a speedometer and a fuel level gauge. Then came the ’70s, ’80s, even the ’90s and turn of the century cars, where “idiot lights” replaced the ammeter, oil pressure and water temperature gauges. Now the latest up-to-date vehicles have again returned to certain analog gauges, and digital read-outs, as well as computerized “information centers” that tell the operator more than they possibly ever wanted to know about their vehicle.

  9. Maximum Water Reuse, Zero Liquid Discharge — A Power Plant Case Study
    3/1/2015

    ELCOGAS, established in 1992 with the aim of building and operating a 335 MW Integrated Gasification Combined Cycle (IGCC) power plant as well as the commercialization of its technology.

  10. Rokeby Generating Station Saves 50% In Capital Expense By Using 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ EXF-14x28 Series Membrane Contactors To Remove CO₂ To Extend Mixed Bed Resin Life
    8/10/2017

    Lincoln Electric Systems (LES) recently commissioned a membrane decarbonation system using  3M™ Liqui-Cel™ EXF-14x28 Series Membrane Contactors to remove CO2 prior to their mixed bed deionizers.
