White Papers and Case Studies For The Power Generation Industry

  1. Monitor Your Pump For Process Efficiency
    12/3/2017

    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. 

  2. 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Degassing Modules Improve Ice Production At The Ice Palace In Moscow
    8/10/2017

    An innovative approach to high quality ice production has been adopted by the new Ice Palace in Moscow.

  3. 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.

  4. Combined-Cycle Water Treatment System
    7/17/2017

    The client was in need of both a raw water and wastewater treatment system for its new 1,100-megawatt (MW) natural gasfired combined cycle power station that was being built to replace an existing 400-MW coal-fired plant that had been decommissioned previously. Veolia Water Technologies was contacted to engineer, procure and supply a 6,000 gallons per minute (GPM) raw water treatment system and a 1,200-GPM wastewater treatment system.

  5. Power Plant In Puerto Rico Selects FEDI Solution For Water Treatment
    5/19/2016

    The South Coast Steam Power Plant, Puerto Rico, decided to replace an old, antiquated ion exchange-based demineralization plant with a membrane-based demineralization system.

  6. MIOX’s On-Demand Generated Chemistry Boosts Production Of One Of The Major Puerto Rico Power Plants
    2/26/2014

    In 2010, one of the Power Plants of Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority (PREPA) faced a crisis due to biological growth in their power plant’s cooling tower. The plant was using straight hypochlorite, which was not effective at controlling biological growth.

  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. 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.

  9. 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. 

  10. IMEC UPW System Utilizes 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors For Oxygen Removal
    5/4/2017

    IMEC (Interuniversity Micro- Electronics Center) in Belgium is Europe's largest independent research center. It focuses on microelectronics, nanotechnology, and enabling design methods and technologies for ICT (Integrated Circuit Technology) systems. IMEC's research runs 3 to 10 years ahead of industrial needs.
