RESOURCES FOR THE POWER GENERATION INDUSTRY

  • A leading provider of water and wastewater treatment solution for industrial, municipal, and recreational customers faced a number of issues with the afe treatment and disposal of coal ash and residual ash in ponds. Frequent testing at multiple locations was needed to ensure water safety and compliance. 

  • Calcium hypochlorite is a low-cost, solid biocide option for treating cooling towers. This white paper reviews points of consideration when making a selection for a cooling tower water treatment program and highlights advantages to utilizing calcium hypochlorite as a biocide. 

  • 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.

  • Reverse osmosis (RO) pre-treatment is used in industrial water filtration to protect the RO membranes, high pressure pumps and other hardware. The performance of pre-filters matters and can impact your operation, in terms of efficiency and water quality.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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. 

  • 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 provides an extensive selection of proven measurement and analytical products and solutions for power generation industry applications.

SOLUTIONS FOR THE POWER GENERATION INDUSTRY

  • 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors

    Capable of both adding and removing dissolved gases, 3M™ Liqui-Cel™ Membrane Contactors are commonly used for carbon dioxide removal, deoxygenation, nitrogenation and carbonation. Highly compact and efficient, they use microporous membranes with nearly 10x the gas exchange surface area of conventional vacuum towers.

    The modular nature of Liqui-Cel membrane contactors makes it easy to incorporate them into skidded systems, helping to lower installation costs. Even after initial installation, Liqui-Cel membrane contactors can be readily expanded to meet growing capacity.

  • What Is Genclean Advanced Oxidation Disinfection Solution And What Is It Used For?

    A non-toxic, advanced oxidation (AOP) formula of minerals chelated with oxygen and stabilized in an aqueous water solution. It is a viable option in industries and applications requiring a solution to challenging situations where high level effective sanitization and oxidation is required. Read more to learn how the Genclean advanced oxidation treatment solutions can be used in different applications.

  • GENCLEAN Disinfect

    Genclean™ Disinfect is an NSF certified advanced oxidation water treatment solution.

  • Offshore Platform Fire Safety Sprinkler System Depends On Liquid Flow Assurance Switch

    Offshore platforms around the globe are essential to the production of oil/gas and the global energy supply chain, but they represent a daily hazardous operating environment to the employees that work there 24-x-7. The potential dangers range from a mix of toxic and combustible gases, including, but not limited to, deadly hydrogen sulfide (H2S) to explosive methane (CH4), and other mixed hydrocarbon gases that are easily flammable.

  • Thermal Flare Gas Flow Meter Solves Measurement Challenges On FPSO Vessels

    The accurate measurement and disposal of flare gases aboard floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels is essential to manage these potentially hazardous combustible, flammable and toxic gases. Accurate measurement of these waste gases allows them to be processed efficiently and effectively to protect people and equipment aboard the vessel. Measuring of flare gas is also most often a strict regulatory requirement, as it can form the basis for payment of environmental taxes, climate quotas, etc.
