White Papers and Case Studies For The Power Generation Industry

  1. 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors Provide An Easy, Flexible Solution For Managing Dissolved Oxygen In Hard Cider
    7/11/2017

    Controlling dissolved oxygen (DO) levels during beverage production is vital for ensuring consistent product quality and shelf life. This is particularly true for canning, where high DO levels can cause breakdown of the can lining, corrosion and even leaking – which in turn can result in product waste and customer dissatisfaction. In some cases, can supplier warranties have exclusions for high DO levels.

  2. Eliminate CIP And Cut Wastewater Disposal In Half With CCD
    7/31/2014

    A high water recovery rate is essential for this well-known soy protein manufacturer.

  3. Keeping The Operator In Focus: The Four Pillars Of Operator Effectiveness
    8/2/2018

    This paper shows how the four pillars of operator effectiveness lead operators to greater awareness, faster response and better decisions.

  4. 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.

  5. Keeping A Lid On It: Identifying And Intercepting Potential Cooling Water System Upsets
    3/10/2019

    A wide range of industrial operations rely on cooling systems to function. And, in turn, these systems require cooling water to function. So, it stands to reason that a wide range of water treatment issues need to be considered and addressed so that cooling water system upsets are avoided and everything continues to run as it should. Oftentimes, an efficient industrial operation depends on efficient monitoring and treatment of cooling water.

  6. West Deptford Energy Station Becomes Model Of Highly Efficient And Sustainable Energy Generation
    7/11/2018

    Veolia furnished West Deptford Energy with a BIOSTYR® Biological Aerated Filter (BAF) and Hydrotech Discfilter system, allowing effluent from a municipal wastewater plant to be reused, with a treatment capacity of 7.35 MGD, in the operation of their new “green” energy station. 

  7. 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.

  8. Cooling Tower Water Treatment: Substitution Of Conventional Biocide Treatment With Mixed Oxidant Solution
    1/2/2014

    The substitution of conventional biocide treatments with MIOX Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS) has resulted in a biocidal cooling tower water treatment process that costs less and is more effective than isothiazoline and bromine biocides.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.
