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...
In the power generation industry, petroleum-based products ranging from fuel oil and hydraulic fluid to lubricating greases and oils are found throughout every type of power generating plant or system. This includes coal-fired, gas-fired, hydroelectric, and nuclear.
Whether providing high-efficiency, low emissions auxiliary boilers to coal or otherwise fired power plants across the United States, or heat recovery steam generators to natural gas fired turbine plants you will find Superior Boilers serving the needs of power generation customers for years to come.
Power Generation Combustion Air Measurements: The need for accurate, repeatable & reliable combustion air measurements in power generation plants is critical to efficient operation and safety throughout the entire facility and processes. Coal-fired power plant applications pose a number of challenges to obtaining these critical flow measurements includ¬ing large ducts, limited metering runs, poor velocity and temperature profiles, high vibration, temperatures up to 750° F and dirty `Fly Ash` laden air.
Being driven by new legislation, the production of substitute fuel/alternative fuel will be gain momentum in the next few years, as well as the expected increase of recycling rate in municipalities. This means a lot of waste streams can be turned into alternative fuel for the coal fired power plant, cement and lime industry, biomass power plant, or other industrial boiler systems that still burning fossil fuels.
The use of coal for power generation is widely common. Temperature monitoring is essential for improving the safety and combustion process efficiency. Temperature monitoring in the boiler is important to oversee boiler performance and optimise the combustion process. Key temperature measurements help to prevent damages on the refractory and optimise the combustion process. VisionTIR provides different solutions for an early detection of fire and to optimize your boiler operation.
Regardless of whether a power plant runs on coal or natural gas, it has a very large environmental impact. Producing and transporting fuel also requires consuming resources and generating emissions. Stricter environmental requirements and increased energy costs are challenges for the industry. Solar energy can be used to preheat the water, the make-up water and the actual steam process. Solar collectors that concentrate the sunlight provide a lot of advantages for the purchaser. Read more about our products and...
Biomass Power Plants generates power from biomass fuels such as wood pellets, bagasse and hog fuel. This fuels are susceptible to spontaneous combustion since it can occur at any stage of storage, production or transport. Early detection of fire or combustion is important for safety control.
In tune with industry trends, public scrutiny, government regulation, water constraints, etc., coal power plants here and abroad are striving to eliminate their ash ponds and replace them with dry solutions. If you are considering a transition from wet to dry ash handling, Vulcan® Systems can help.
Vulcan® Fly Ash Drying Systems are custom-designed and manufactured to suit the customer's individual project needs.
Fly Ash can cause many problems. The Vac-Con & Vector Pneumatic Vacuum systems can assist and solve many of these problems. Our high-performance vacuum systems are manufactured in three basic configurations: Truck mounted, Trailer mounted, and Fixed/static installed. Any of these systems can be integrated into the existing power plant design. All of our vacuum systems can be utilized to solve your plant’s fly ash removal/clean-up needs and can assist in many other maintenance projects. All can be tailored to fit...
