White Papers and Case Studies For The Power Generation Industry

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. OPUS Achieves Zero Wastewater Discharge
    10/26/2016

    The client revived, expanded and modernized its operations in order to produce rare earth materials in high volumes and in an environmentally responsible manner. As part of the expansion, the client contracted Veolia to design and build a new water treatment plant for their state-of-the-art rare earth facility.

  4. Membrane Technologies In Containerized Units Allow For Installation In A Small Footprint
    4/23/2018

    After an international tender process, the Israel Electric Company (IEC) chose Fluence to design, manufacture, and supply containerized ultrapure water production systems for use as makeup water for heat-recovery steam generators (HRSG) and for NOx emission reduction at recently upgraded power plants across Israel. More than 15 units of 20 m3/h production modules, each fitted in two 40-foot shipping containers, were provided to seven power plants. Their compact design allowed for ease of installation, operation, and maintenance while meeting the customer’s demanding engineering standards.

  5. 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. 

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Natural Gas-Fired Combined Cycle Power Plant Improves The Performance Of Water Treatment System
    7/19/2016

    A natural gas-fired combined cycle power generation facility located in Idaho contacted QUA to find a solution to improve the performance of a water treatment system used to recycle the plant’s cooling tower blow down water.

  10. 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.
