A nuclear reactor produces and controls the release of energy from splitting the atoms of certain elements. The energy released from continuous fission of the atoms of the fuel is utilized as heat in either a gas or water to produce steam. The steam is used to drive the turbines that drive electricity generators. Both boiling water reactors (BWR) and pressurized water reactors (PWR) require secondary separation or “steam drying” as the final stage of water separation within the reactors. In addition,...
Our activities are closely interconnected with the energy industry. The precision casting foundry casts rotor and stator blades for gas turbines followed by precision grinding by the Industry Division. Furthermore, we also perform machining of shafts, complete blade attachment as well as subsequent assembly of steam and gas expansion turbines.
A gas turbine, also called a combustion turbine, is a type of internal combustion engine. It has an upstream rotating compressor coupled to a downstream turbine, and a combustion chamber in-between. The basic operation of the gas turbine is similar to that of the steam power plant except that air is used instead of water. The turbine shaft energy is used to drive the compressor and other devices such as an electric generator that may be coupled to the shaft. The energy that is not used for...
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’...
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.
Turboden ORC can produce electricity by recovering heat from industrial processes, reciprocating engines and gas turbines. The power of Turboden units generally ranges between 200 kW and 15 MW electric.
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.
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...
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.
The power generation sector is an essential service industry that uses technologies ranging from the mature steam turbine to pioneering marine current turbines. Since privatisation in the UK in 1990, the main objective of the sector has been profitability for shareholders, although issues such as health, safety, sustainability and fuel poverty have also become increasingly important on the corporate agenda.
Geothermal power plants use heat from production wells to drive turbines to make power. CSP augments the heat from the wells to boost power production. Hyperlight uses the lowest cost materials, manufacturing method, and installation technique of any CSP technology yet deployed for this purpose.
Sauereisen is the most widely known international company to supply corrosion-resistant coatings, mortars and gunitable refractory linings for flue gas applications in the power industry. For more than half a century, our cost-effective corrosion-resistant materials have provided solutions for power plants and their various components where the infrastructure would otherwise be threatened by corrosion. Our diverse product line includes potassium silicate, novolac epoxy, vinyl ester and urethane formulations...
The construction of coal and natural gas power stations is continuing at a steady rate along with older power stations being retrofitted with more effective flue gas cleaning systems. Both the community and environmental protection authorities are paying closer attention to both emission and ambient concentrations around power stations.
The perfect solution of special industry of Yanan supports the safe and stable operation of the oil-gas field and others. The brand-new tandem and parallel operation function of the unit completely accords with the characteristics of power supply of oil-gas field, and in the rated power factor, it meets the stable and normal operation in the rated power range of 20%-100%. The normal operation of oil-gas field is strongly guaranteed by virtue of ultrastrong adaptability of complicated environment.
Our Power Pallet biomass gasifier genset, when used with the grid-tie module, can be integrated with an existing 3-phase AC microgrid that includes intermittent electrical sources such as solar panels or small wind turbines.
Predictable and reliable, hydrokinetic energy is a promising lever for the energy transition. HydroQuest has studied opportunities for hydrokinetic turbine development since 2010. Our ambition is to become a global reference in the development of innovative technology to harness hydrokinetic resources. This is a new alternative energy supply as promoted by the Energy Transition law to encourage renewable growth.
