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...
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.
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’...
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,...
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.
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.
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.
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...
Gasification and synthetic gas production from various waste products are becoming increasingly important energy recovery technologies. Often, the synthetic gas contains various hazardous contaminants including H2S, HCl and other acids, heavy metals, and tars. The gas requires cleaning before it is introduced in the engine or boiler. Most of these processes generate significant concentration of tars. The tars can vary from very low molecular weight to large and complex chains.
Processes that create a synthetic gas (syn gas) in a gasification process for waste reduction, electricity generation, or steam production (CHP – combined heat and power processes) – commonly benefit from custom heat recovery systems.
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.
Wind power is now the world`s fastest growing alternative energy source and has also become one of the most rapidly expanding industries. For over 40 years, Climatronics has been a leading developer and manufacturer of wind measurement sensor technology to the growing wind power generation market. We offer precision weather sensors for wind energy applications such as wind resource assessment, wind turbine generator control, and wind farm performance management.
Particle board production requires huge amounts of hot gas at high temperatures for wood chips dryers. Besides generating heat for the main press, the thermal oil heater can generating hot water, steam or electricity (ORC application). VYNCKE offers a customized energy solution, burning a wide variety of process fuels and external fuels (all types of biomass).
Carbon fibre is a unique material and is found in many high-tech industries such as sports car manufacture, wind turbine blade construction and sports equipment. The production of carbon fibre from acrylic fibre involves the baking of the fibre in ovens, which gives emissions of gas species including Hydrogen Cyanide (HCN). Protea’s range of gas analysers can provide a solution for the periodic or continuous measurement of gases from carbon fibre production in order to give reportable emissions values as...
Providers and operators of engine power plants and mobile electrical supply systems can use our container solutions to efficiently turn engine exhaust gases and/or cooling water into clean electricity. Our containers work perfectly with diesel and gas engines, increasing electricity generation by up to 100 kilowatts per 1,400 kilowatts of generator power.
Collect valuable biogas from anaerobic digestion systems with a GTI gas collection cover. In waste-to-energy projects, the collected biogas can be used as a renewable fuel to generate process heat or electricity, helping to offset energy costs.
