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.
MDF production requires large amounts of energy. Most of the demand of energy is thermal: steam for the cooking and refining process, hot gas for drying and thermal oil for the continuous press. VYNCKE offers customized energy solutions, burning a wide variety of process fuels and external fuels (all types of biomass). The energy plant can be designed to produce steam in a direct way (through an integrated steam boiler) or in an indirect way via a thermal oil-steam heat exchanger. The system can be adjusted to...
Discontinuous control is used mainly in smaller steam boilers with low output since the temperature fluctuations in the boiler are fairly great as a result of irregular refilling with water. Continuous control, on the other hand, permits still more economical steam generation with high quality.
Cocoa processing plants are often located in remote areas with little or no access to fossil fuels. The cocoa shells represent up to 10 % of the processing capacity of a typical plant, and often have no market value. VYNCKE offers combustion systems to convert the cocoa shells into a reliable supply of steam for the sterilization, roasting and grinding process. Our systems effectively address the challenges of cocoa shells as a boiler fuel, and even allow co-generation (combined heat and power supply).
For many years, sugar mills have burned bagasse, the fibrous byproduct of the processing of sugarcane, using special boilers that produce the steam needed to help break down the sugar cane.
As the cost of powering this equipment by burning fossil fuels has steadily risen, the use of biofuel cogeneration as a source of power production has become more prevalent. Many sugar mills have updated their bagasse-fired boilers and linked them to generators that produce electricity used to power the mill’s operations...
Thermal Energy International has helped several well-known pharmaceutical companies in North America and Europe reduce their energy costs and carbon dioxide emissions. Our FLU-ACE heat recovery system recycles the heat normally lost through the boiler flue gas exhaust – reducing energy consumption on most boilers by 10% to 20%.
Superior Boiler Works, Inc. led the way in Ethanol production in the USA with more installed firetube boilers in Ethanol plants than any other manufacturer. Ethanol requires the distillation of sugars into an alcohol fuel. Superior’s products are used to generate heat needed for the ethanol distillation processes, heating storage tanks as well as batch reactors. Additionally, Superior Boilers can be fitted with packaged burners which fire a variety of fuels from tallow to syngas to Hydrogen and most...
Körting condensers, steam jet and water jet vacuum ejectors are established components in steam power plants. There have been innovative developments over the past decades and continously upgraded aggregates to lower energy consumption by optimising heat revovery in power stations.
Reduction of perating costs: The increased energy costs over the last years have made investments towards heat recovery solutions not only cost effective but profitable. With the support and input of our employees and our technical know how, are improvements and solutions concerning heat recovery become feasible.
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.
Steam enhanced oil recovery burns fossil fuel to generate steam to inject in production wells to boost oil output. CSP can be used to generate steam for this use. Hyperlight uses the lowest cost materials, manufacturing method, and installation technique of any CSP technology yet deployed for industrial process heat and can be deployed at the smaller scale needed for commercial and industrial customers.
You`ll find Jeffrey Rader`s equipment employed in many stages of woody biomass processing. Woody Biomass is the residual waste wood that results from the lumber manufacturing process. It is burned in a boiler to generate steam that is used both in the lumber-drying process and to produce electricity. Jeffrey Rader is a leader in serving the electric utility industry with boiler feed systems (pneumatic and mechanical) for producing electric power from biomass materials.
Combining highly-experienced industry experts and a state-of-the-art research center, EVAPCO is constantly developing next generation technology for wet cooling tower systems, dry air-cooled steam condensing, and hybrid systems.
Procal supply analysers to monitor many different applications from small combustion plants to large power stations. Examples include University Boiler Plants, Carbon Black Plants, Thermal Oxidisers and Community Heating Projects.
Superior Boilers can be found burning digester methane gas, hydrogen, tallow (animal fats), biodiesel, sanderdust and recovering heat from biomass systems. In addition, Superior Boiler Works, Inc. has partnered with the biomass experts AESI located in Wichita, KS USA. AESI offers turnkey expertly designed biomass sytems and offers burn tests for a diverse array of materials
Depending on the regulations, a steam boiler must be equipped with one or more direct and/ or indirect level gauges. With direct level gauges, the liquid level can be seen directly through a glass or mica window. The use of a transparent level gauge with background illumination gives operating staff a clear separation between the water and steam zones even when viewed at a relatively long distance. Bicolour level gauges (black and white or green and red) are very suitable for camera transmission to the measuring...
We help hospitals save money by reducing their fuel bills while also lowering their greenhouse gas emissions. Our proven solutions can increase the efficiency of your heating and steam system to as much as 95% with typical project paybacks (for our combined technologies) within three to five years.
