RESOURCES FOR THE POWER GENERATION INDUSTRY
Coal Ash Pond Polishing Filter System
The power plant’s wastewater is contaminated by coal ash generated from power plant operations and removed in the scrubber system. The wastewater is sent to a settling pond after polymer injection to allow for sedimentation. The wastewater then travels to a second, third and fourth pond for additional settling. The water is pumped at a maximum flow rate of 10,000 GPM.
Filtration System For Thermoelectric Plant
AES Gener is the second generating company in Chile and the main thermoelectric generator, and provides 4.068 MW (including Guacolda S.A.), equivalent to a share of 22%, whereas 3.797 MW of thermoelectric capacity and 271 MW of hydroelectric capacity.
Ultrapure Water Treatment: A Market With Energy
A look at the market dynamics and drivers for ultrapure water treatment reveals multiple industries with growing demand, including one that stands above the rest.
Hydro-Electric Power Station Benefits From The Use Of Siemens Flow Meters
Pumped storage hydro-electric power is a method of producing electricity to supply high peak power demands by moving water between water reservoirs at different elevations. At times of low electrical demand, excess generation capacity is used to pump water back into the higher reservoir. When there is higher demand, water is released back into the lower reservoir through a turbine. Pumped-storage schemes currently provide the most commercially important means of large-scale grid energy storage. Such systems greatly improve the daily capacity factor of power generating systems though out the world.
Power-Gen Efficiency Boosted By Clamp-On Flow Meters
When an energy storage facility in New York, USA was looking for a way to improve the efficiency of their power generating turbines they did not have many options to choose from. Because of the sheer size, the space limitations and performance requirements of the application, the only option was to install a SITRANS FS230 clamp-on ultrasonic flow meter from Siemens.
Water And Power Generation Remain A Balancing Act Amid Tightening Regulations
A recent survey digs into the treatment aspects of water in the power industry, revealing how electric utilities are responding to concerns over regulations and volumes of use.
ABB Ability: Our Offering For Power Plants
ABB provides an extensive selection of proven measurement and analytical products and solutions for power generation industry applications.
Design And Care Of Reverse Osmosis Systems, Part 3: Operation And Monitoring
Reverse osmosis (RO) systems offer power plant owners and operators a reliable and well-proven water treatment solution. However, designing and caring for an RO system requires a thorough understanding of a plant’s water supply and the technology’s capabilities. The final article of this three-part series will address RO system operation and maintenance best practices.
Design And Care Of Reverse Osmosis Systems, Part 2: Upstream Equipment
The success of a new reverse osmosis (RO) membrane system is often directly related to its pretreatment. The previous section of this article discussed RO design issues and introduced how a pilot study should include a study of its probable pretreatment equipment since the pretreatment performance will directly affect the performance of the RO system. However, piloting the upstream processes can be challenging in sizing these components for the pilot RO unit’s low flow rate.
Design And Care Of Reverse Osmosis Systems, Part 1: Design
Reverse osmosis (RO) systems offer power plant owners and operators a reliable and well-proven water treatment solution. However, designing and caring for an RO system requires a thorough understanding of a plant’s water supply and the technology’s capabilities. Part one of this series will review the importance of water samples and pilot studies as plant engineers begin to design an RO system to match their needs.
