RESOURCES FOR THE POWER GENERATION INDUSTRY

  • More than 2,000 years ago, Greek and Roman engineers harnessed the power of water to drive grain mills, and the technology soon spread as far as China, where it was used to forge iron. By the 4th century, the Romans had scaled up water wheel technology to build a massive flour plant in Arles, France, powered by 16 overshot water wheels. During the Renaissance, Leonardo da Vinci sketched out visions of water-driven sawmills, forges, factories, and spinning works.

  • Brine is everywhere: desalination plants, gas and oil drillings, energy generation plants, mines, cooling towers, food manufacturing plants, chip fabrication, and many other industries that require high volumes of water. They all generate brine as a byproduct of their processes.

  • Unlike backwash systems, scraper strainers reliably resist clogging and fouling when faced with micron-sized particles, oversized solids, and high solids concentration.

  • A leading provider of water and wastewater treatment solution for industrial, municipal, and recreational customers faced a number of issues with the safe 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. 

  • A power plant's wastewater was being contaminated by coal ash generated from power plant operations. The plant was searching for a treatment/polishing system to maintain a TSS of less than 25 PPM. 

  • 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.

  • 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.
