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,...
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...
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.
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.
10HP Solar Thermal Steam Generator produces 300#s of 15PSI Steam per hour at 250F. Integrates into any main steam line. Cost effective and perfect for significant reductions in GHG. ROI can be less than 5-years
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’...
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.
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.
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.
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...
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.
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.
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.
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).
A comprehensive range of power generation technologies with environmental benefits. ANDRITZ technologies and processes for power generation utilize renewable fuels as well as traditional fossil fuels in efficient and environmentally appealing ways. In addition, there are purely environmental technologies in this category to meet the most stringent standards for emissions and effluent quality. From steam generators and hydropower plants, to air pollution control systems and wastewater treatment equipment, ANDRITZ...
Innovas Technologies provides condenser tube cleaning systems for on-load cleaning of surface condensers in steam or combined cycle plants. You’ll get continuously clean, efficient surface condensers and increased power generation capacity. Better yet, your organization will also save on energy and maintenance costs.
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).
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.
