White Papers and Case Studies For The Power Generation Industry

  1. Membrane Degasification -- Chemical Free Alternative For The pharmaceutical industry

    In treating water for the production of pharmaceuticals, the concentration of gases dissolved in the water plays an important role.

  2. Design-Build Using Actiflo Technology

    A state-of-the-art 695-MW power generation facility was recently installed in the Northeastern U.S. to serve the country’s highest demand market. Its innovative power generation technologies, emissions control systems and process efficiencies make it one of the cleanest, most efficient and technologically advanced supercritical pulverized coal (SPC) power plants in the U.S.

  3. Monitor Your Pump For Process Efficiency

    Pumps are all too frequently one of the most overlooked and abused pieces of equipment in process automation, yet nothing moves without them and a process becomes inefficient when they don’t operate properly or completely shutdown. 

  4. Cooling Water Intake Decisions Are Heating Up

    Now that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has issued its rule for cooling water intakes under Section 316(b) of the Clean Water Act, the race is on for more than 600 power plants and manufacturing facilities to comply.  Right now, there is probably no better example in the water industry of how carefully choosing among compliance options can lead to millions of dollars in cost savings.

  5. Wood-Fired Biomass Power Generation Facility Uses
    Q-SEP® UF Membranes For Pretreatment

    The Gainesville Renewable Energy Center is a nominal 100 MW wood-fired biomass power generation facility located in Gainesville, FL. The plant provides about 30% of Gainesville Regional Utilities’ power, reducing the area’s dependence on energy from fossil fuels and greenhouse gas emissions. The client contacted QUA to install their Q-SEP® UF membranes as pretreatment for the plant’s water treatment system.

  6. WirelessHART® Networks: 7 Myths That Cloud Their Consideration For Process Control Measurement Made Easy

    Misinformation about WirelessHART networks prevails among many instrument engineers in the process industries. This article attempts to set the record straight by debunking seven myths about these networks.

  7. 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

  8. Successful Ammonia Removal From Wastewater Using 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors At A European Manufacturing Facility

    Ammonia is used as a cleaning and bleaching agent in the production of fertilizers, plastics, explosives, and many other products.

  9. Thermal Mass Flow Meter Supports Feedback Control Loop In Boiler System For Thermal Electric Power Generation

    To meet China’s growing need for electric power generation, the Guohua Ninghai Power Plant has a total planned operating capacity of 4 x 600 MW [Phase 1]. The plant is located south of Shanghai in Ninghai township, Ningbo city, Zhejiang province and serves the electric power needs in the region.

  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

    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.
