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,...
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.
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...
All lines can be blocked over in time by bacteria in the water that is used for heat exchange during liquefaction and gasification processes, in LNG Terminals. And this can lead to an increase in costs due to the inefficient heat exchange.
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.
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.
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.
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’...
Limpet Technology is embarking on the development of a new access solution that focuses on allowing technicians and loads to transfer between vessels and offshore wind turbines more safely and in higher sea states. The overarching technical objective is to deliver a solution that can be proven to deliver safe and reliable access to and from offshore wind turbines in sea states up to and beyond 2.5 metres Significant Height (Hs).
Combustion efficiency is of major importance on small boiler plants and the best way to monitor this is by monitoring CO2 emissions. CODEL offer the Model 1010 Cross-Duct CO monitor. Using Infra-red Gas Filter Correlation technology to filter out interferences such as dust and other gases. The Model 1010 has low maintenance requirements and meets the needs of most boiler applications. In addition to small boilers the Model 1010 is also used on Animal carcass incinerators and Crematoriums.
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.
AppliTek`s solutions in this field concentrate on the process efficiency of anaerobic digesters. Many existing digesters give unnecessary problems, which arise due to inadequacies in the process or process control system. AppliTek has developed a unique instrument to measure and control the key processes in the anaerobic fermentation. Compact gas analyzers with proprietary technology can be implemented to check the biogas yield.
Parameters: Volatile Fatty Acids - Alkalinity - pH - Bicarbonate
Gas parameters: CH4...
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.
Wind Energy has brought new life to the wind measurement industry, including SoDAR. With wind turbine hub heights reaching over 100m and blade spans of up to 80m, measurements across the entire blade swept area are becoming critical. SoDAR provides that information and ASC`s SoDARs offer more.
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.
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...
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.
R&D tests using HNG in a fuel injection mixture is showing how effective HNG can be in making diesel and other fuels burns cleaner and more efficiently. Developments for a full scale implementation of the HNG Fuel Activator are in process with an initial focus on diesel fuels.
