Rising fuel and electric costs, along with global warming concerns have changed the way industrial facilities view energy consumption. Process equipment and air pollution control systems that were installed several years ago may not reflect the energy conscious designs available today, analyzing these systems to determine energy reduction opportunities can be a very valuable practice. Recovering waste heat is one of the easiest and most utilized means of reducing energy demands at industrial facilities.
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...
The most important measurement parameter is irradiation. Since PV systems are becoming ever larger, the accuracy of the irradiation measurement is increasingly important for the efficiency of the system. Wind cools the temperature of the module and must therefore be included in the efficiency calculation. Precipitation leads to contamination or covering (snow). With increasing temperature, the performance of the solar module decreases. Therefore, it is important to measure the temperature of the solar module in...
Dürr MEGTEC’s industry-leading experience in air handling, drying, heating, cooling, process and combustion control can help improve the operating efficiency of your facility and maximize the performance of your equipment. By analyzing current process energy usage, we can offer solutions to reduce your energy consumption.
Fundamental changes are evident in the power industry. From a highly regulated and monopolistic industry, it is evolving rapidly into a marketplace defined by increasing competition and deregulation. Technology providers should be in the game allowing power companies to focus on their core business, producing electricity at maximum efficiency.
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,...
AppliTek has already developed the necessary tools to measure and control on-line the production, in case the futur is in favour of biofuels. For biodiesel, the following quality indices should be monitored, on order to comply with international legislation on biofuel QC:
Free fatty acids - Calcium & Magnesium - Total Phosphorus - Potassium - Moisture (water content)
WesTech engineers water and wastewater process solutions for the power industry including water pretreatment, cooling tower makeup water treatment, and ultrafiltration pretreatment to reverse osmosis, guaranteeing SDIs less than 3. ISO 9001:2008 certified and turnkey experienced, WesTech stands ready to meet deadlines and assure minimal downtime with focused service.
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.
Site surveys for tidal, wave and wind based renewable energy projects will require instruments to measure standard physical parameters before, during and post installation.Fine tuning of the generating method is also reliant on data from sensor packages to maximise the source energy required for profitable installations.
Supervision and maintenance on those locations without internet wired connection requires high personnel cost and also means a slow reaction in case of malfunction events and alarms. For companies with a big amount of remote location centers (such as repeaters of operators and telephone companies, production and distribution centers for energy manufacturers or photovoltaic/eolic plants), maintenance and supervision labors involve disproportionately high costs.
