White Papers and Case Studies For The Power Generation Industry

  1. Bubble Removal From Aqueous Streams Using 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ SP Series Membrane Contactors
    7/18/2017

    Many manufacturing processes, analytical measurements, and other industrial processes that involve aqueous solutions are adversely affected by bubbles in the fluid stream. 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ SP Series Membrane Contactors provide a very simple, cost effective solution to help eliminate bubbles from such processes.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Power Plant Water: Wanted Dead And Alive
    7/17/2017

    Water is the lifeblood of electrical power plants, whether they are water-cooled steam plants or turbine-spinning hydroelectric installations. Regardless of how the facility generates electricity, there is a growing awareness that each power plant is part of its own, unique industrial watershed — drawing water from the environment, altering its contents and temperature, releasing some to the atmosphere as steam, and returning the rest to receiving waters.

  5. Cooling Water Intake Decisions Are Heating Up
    7/7/2014

    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.

  6. Building An Invisible And Soundless Power Plant
    6/23/2017

    The Villoresi Channel, located north of Milan, was designed with the main purpose of agricultural irrigation while providing water to the city of Milan. The paths running along the canal were also used for recreational purposes and cross through some of the most beautiful natural parks in Lombardy.

  7. Kirin Beer Uses 3M Liqui-Cel Membrane Contactors For CO2 and O2 Removal to Prevent Pipe Corrosion at Three of Their Japanese Breweries
    6/28/2017

    In the food and beverage industry, there is a growing awareness of environmental considerations wherever chemicals are used. In response, companies are trending towards alternative systems that operate with less chemical usage.

  8. 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.

  9. Selecting An Envirnomentally Friendly Zero Liquid Discharge System
    7/17/2013

    Mississippi Power Company had a wide range of environmental considerations when they set out to choose a builder for a Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD) system, integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) power plant. Aquatech was selected due to the company’s proven success in providing cost-effective, environmentally-focused water treatment solutions for the power industry. This case study provides details and technical specifications on the system selected.

  10. Fractional Electrodeionization (FEDI) Technology For RO Permeate Polishing And Demineralization
    5/5/2016

    Sabine Pass, a large LNG refinery in the U.S., required a membrane desalination solution to cater to its extensive process water needs in order to produce a large amount of liquefied natural gas for export.
