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...
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...
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.
As the owner-operator of power generation facilities, your plants and supporting infrastructure are critical to your success. Our solutions span the entire asset lifecycle from design through construction and into operations. Coordinate capital projects and revamps, whether managed directly or through contractors, with solutions for multi-discipline design and analysis and project collaboration. You will bring new plants into production more quickly and manage revamps with confidence.
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.
Energy comprises many types of modes by using complex processes to explore, extract, refine, produce and transport these products. The energy industry comprises: Fossil fuels: coal, petroleum and natural gas (conventional as well as hydraulic fracturing), including liquid propane gas and liquid natural gas. Non fossil fuels such as: hydroelectric, battery technology, hydrogen fuel cells, nuclear power. Renewable fuels such as: biofuels, hydrogen fuel cells, geothermal, solar (photovoltaic). Nuclear power.

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.
Thermal power generation involves the combustion of a fuel to raise steam and drive a turbine to produce electricity. AMETEK Land provides the high-performance temperature measurements, emissions monitoring and safety systems demanded by this industry. High-accuracy measurements of temperature and flue gas composition are essential in optimising the combustion process, regardless of fuel used. Our instruments also help control pollution, and provide essential safety monitoring. With more than 60 years’...
In order to assure well-founded decisions in designing profitable solar power plants, the solar irradiance should be measured in the assessment phase. Irradiation is a crucial parameter for site selection and plant design and economics of plant. There are many different ways and technologies to measure the irradiance phenomena that influences the power generation of a future solar power plant. Ammonit’s solutions are designed to meet the latest standards with regard to accuracy and affordability of the measurement.
Frequency inverter reconstruction of Power Plant promoted heightening of economy benefit. Frequency inverter won acceptance of user as its high reliability, flexible adjustment and simple operation. A Power Plant was set up in June, 2000. Its predecessor was one of key plants of state. The plant put into service in 1957. Now it has 4×50MW, 2×142MW, total ten boilers and six generators. Total capacity is 484MW. The plant supplies power to big enterprise near to it.
