Growing populations – about 80 million every year – and industrializing countries create huge needs for electrical energy. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA) the global energy demand will increase by about 65% by 2035. A major fraction of the required energy will continue to be provided by thermal – mainly fossil fuel-fired and nuclear – power plants. "Renewable" energy sources such as photovoltaics (PV) will be another backbone of our energy supply. Putting renewable...
Heating Elements | Coils / Cartridge Heaters / Sheath; Thermally conductive cement. Enables transmission or dissipation of heat. Secures element and maintains assembly. High temperature resistance and electrical insulation.
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.
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.
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’...
Whether you’re generating power for a single job site or hundreds of thousands people, power generation is a mission critical application. Thermal Structures products offer the extreme performance, durability and ease of installation that power generation requires.
PROJECT OVERVIEW: Large residential and commercial project in London, overlooking the Thames. A 2.9MW cooling and heating aquifer thermal energy storage system for five mixed-use buildings including over 200 luxury apartments.
In a recent project and the subject of this paper, Kurz engineers conducted a study that lead to a unique, new design that allows thermal flow meters to perform accurately within a wet digester gas environment. The testing environment applies to landfill and digester applications.
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).
SolarReserve’s industry-leading solar thermal technology features an integrated molten salt energy storage system that provides a stable and predictable electricity dispatch similar to that of conventional utility power facilities—without any associated harmful environmental emissions or volatile fuel costs. Additionally, our solar thermal power plants with integrated energy storage are cost-competitive with most new build fossil fuel or nuclear technology.
The construction building wall makes the most significant contribution to the reduction of building energy consumption. The total thermal losses of building constructions strongly depends on the environmental conditions (Location) and building construction (Material). On site measurements are possible with EKO thin film heat flow sensors which can be integrated with building walls. Evaluation of heat flow and thermal losses is inevitable during building design and engineering of energy-efficient floor heating...
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.
