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.
ANDRITZ Feed & Biofuel Technologies is a global leading supplier of technologies, production plants, systems and services for the animal feed, aqua feed, and pet food industries and for the biomass pelleting industry.
Sustainable use of biofuels requires reliable and precise analytical methods throughout – from the choice of raw materials through to process optimization and on to the compliant final product. As a leading manufacturer of instruments for chemical analysis, we are quite aware of these challenges.
The "dirty" steam produced from geothermal ground steam has always been a difficult measurement. Our unique mass vortex meters are designed for this tough application allowing steam readings in pipes up to 72" (2M).
Without controls, the combustion of solid fuel (coal) to generate power results in the emission of carbon dioxide (CO2), sulfur dioxides (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx), particulate matter, mercury, lead, cadmium, carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and arsenic. This is why it is critically important for solid fuel power plants to comply with stringent environmental standards by utilizing the optimal technologies for emissions management, environmental air pollution control, and fluid handling and...

We are committed to providing mixed metal oxide (MMO)-coated anodes and electrochemical technologies for the electronics industry. Listening to the industrial needs and main drivers, we have developed a high quality and reliable MMO-coated titanium anode for the electrodeposition of copper, gold and other metals on printed circuit boards (PCB) in replacement of soluble anodes.
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. These facilities prevent out of compliance discharge by capturing all stormwater in storm drains, which is then sent to treatment systems prior to discharge. At some sites,...
The solar panel manufacturing industry includes owners and operators of solar-power-generating facilities in the form of either photovoltaic panels or solar thermal power stations that make use of mirrors or lenses to concentrate the sun`s energy. Operators then sell the energy to downstream customers. These businesses require systems and solutions to meet their photovoltaic panel manufacturing process emissions and pollution control challenges, including volatile organic compound (VOC) abatement; and acid gas...
Cleaner burning than other fossil fuels, the combustion of natural gas produces negligible amounts of sulfur, mercury, and particulates. However, natural gas does produce nitrogen oxides (NOx), which contributes to smog.
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.
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.
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.
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...
