Rising fuel and electric costs, along with global warming concerns have changed the way industrial facilities view energy consumption. Process equipment and air pollution control systems that were installed several years ago may not reflect the energy conscious designs available today, analyzing these systems to determine energy reduction opportunities can be a very valuable practice. Recovering waste heat is one of the easiest and most utilized means of reducing energy demands at industrial facilities.
Dürr MEGTEC’s industry-leading experience in air handling, drying, heating, cooling, process and combustion control can help improve the operating efficiency of your facility and maximize the performance of your equipment. By analyzing current process energy usage, we can offer solutions to reduce your energy consumption.
For particulate matter (PM) emission control in high temperature exhaust streams, such as those from biomass or coal boilers and heaters, common dedusters such as cyclones and multicyclones are not able to comply with current emission limits. This is mainly due to their low efficiency, particularly for small particles (less than 10µm). In order to meet emission limits this usually requires an additional investment in a final stage deduster. Bag filters (BF) are very efficient dedusters. They can also be...
The PetroAlert® Series 9100 combines the selectivity of gas chromatography with the sensitivity, broad dynamic range, and hydrocarbon selectivity of a flame ionization detector (FID) providing a 30 second analysis of C1-C5 hydrocarbons required in Mud Logging for
Oil & Gas exploration, while maintaining C1-C2 separation at 200:1 concentration ratios.
Optical instruments called fluorometers can very easily detect and measure dissolved petroleum hydrocarbons in water, and at very low concentrations. As shown in the study below, TD-4100 series monitors are able to measure xylene continuously over four consecutive weeks with a direct correlation coefficient of 0.9967 compared to GC grab sample analysis.
Energy storage in batteries or chemical fuels such as hydrogen or synthetic natural gas (produced through water electrolysis) will be crucial to the worldwide large scale deployment of fluctuating renewable energies.
Crude oil is a highly complex mixture of hydrocarbons. Through desalting, distillation, and conversion, it is transformed into fractions of higher-quality hydrocarbons such as paraffins, aromatics, naphthenes, and olefins. Different ratios of these so-called PIANO compounds are blended to yield different fuel and lubricant types. Increasingly, fossil fuels are blended with biofuels. Both blending and refining processes are demanding and require precise and reliable analysis. Regardless whether you deal with...
Numerous technologies and products were evaluated for this application. A monitor with no moving parts, no significant effect from turbidity, and the ability to detect the lube oil at less than 1 ppm was determined to be the best solution. Fast, reliable, and accurate detection of lubricating oil in the water was needed.
Growing populations – about 80 million every year – and industrializing countries create huge needs for electrical energy. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA) the global energy demand will increase by about 65% by 2035. A major fraction of the required energy will continue to be provided by thermal – mainly fossil fuel-fired and nuclear – power plants. "Renewable" energy sources such as photovoltaics (PV) will be another backbone of our energy supply. Putting renewable...
Combustion efficiency is of major importance on small boiler plants and the best way to monitor this is by monitoring CO2 emissions. CODEL offer the Model 1010 Cross-Duct CO monitor. Using Infra-red Gas Filter Correlation technology to filter out interferences such as dust and other gases. The Model 1010 has low maintenance requirements and meets the needs of most boiler applications. In addition to small boilers the Model 1010 is also used on Animal carcass incinerators and Crematoriums.
A major pipeline company has large storage tank farms throughout the Western States. The pipeline company transports, stores, blends additives, and distributes gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel to retail service stations and airports. Due to the quantity and movement of fuel at these facilities, there is always the potential for fuel spills.
Customers benefit from the extensive know-how that AERZEN has gained from decades of experience in the chemical and petrochemical industry. The use of biogas as an energy source will considerably help achieve the environmental objectives set nationally and internationally; be that reducing reliance on nuclear energy or the reduction of CO2 emissions.
