  • Electrical Leak Location Arc Tester to Revolutionize Liner Quality

    New equipment has been developed that behaves like a spark tester, but doesn’t have to be performed on conductive-backed geomembrane.  It has the same requirements as the water puddle and water lance methods in terms of a conductive layer underlying the geomembrane, including soil.  It is not a spark tester, which is used exclusively on conductive-backed geomembrane; yet, it ...

  • GE Leakwise Application Notes: Oil Detection in Hydro-Electric Power Plants

    Leakwise* Oil Detection in Water Collection Sump Under Turbines Water carries oil leakage from turbine bearings and other leaking sources into a large sump, which is built under the turbines. In most plants, pumps installed at the bottom of the sump discharge the water directly to the river.  A Leakwise lD-221 Floating Oil Detector is installed in a perforated 6” stilling well. The ...

  • Monitoring flammable gas in boiler houses

    The most common fuels in use for space and water heating are Oil, Natural Gas and Liquid Petroleum Gas (LPG). By far the most popular, clean and cost effective solutions are utilising Natural Gas or LPG. The traditional safety measure derived from the time of oil fired boiler houses is the use of a fusible link placed above the each boiler. The fusible link is intended to melt if it becomes ...

  • Radioactive release from VVER-1000 reactors after a terror attack

    One of the terror scenarios for nuclear power plants is a severe damage of the reactor containment caused by a plane crash or a missile. Owing to the loss of electric power the cooling of the core would not be maintained, leading to a core melt accident. Normally in the course of severe accidents an intact containment has the ability to retain a large part of the radioactive inventory. The goal ...

  • Nuclear power reactor Unterweser in Lower Saxony, DE - Case Study

    On 29th of September 1978 the pressurised water reactor Unterweser went on stream and was the most powerful reactor in the world. The Nuclear power reactor Unterweser (KKU - Kernkraftwerk] had an electrical output of 1410 MW. In the course of the energy turnaround, the reactor was turned off on the 18th of March 2011 and completely shut down by the operator E.ON Kernkraft GmbH in June 2011. ...

  • Greenstars portable monitoring for CHP and flares

    Greenstar’s award-winning KTK landfill site in Kilcullen, Co. Kildare, is unusual in Ireland in that it has three gas engines feeding electricity to the grid and two flares. In Ireland, while flaring is common, engines are not. The flares are run in tandem with engines so that if an engine is ramped down for repair or service, the flare ramps up automatically. All are supplied by 122 ...

  • Monitoring Hydroelectric Dam Sumps - Case study

    The Situation Hydroelectric dams produce electric power by harnessing the force of the water flowing through the dam. There are numerous sources for oil spillage: The hydroelectric turbines are lubricated by lubrication oils. The very large water control valves are normally hydraulic powered and are lubricated with various greases and oils. Vehicles ...

  • What the heck is a smart grid anyway?

    You know the old adage, ‘Never talk about politics or religion in polite company’? I’m beginning to think we need to add a third restraint, one against debate over the meaning of smart grid.Okay, it’s not exactly a dinnertime topic. But I’ve discovered in gatherings of energy nerds (I’m one), discussion can become fairly heated over what constitutes “smart grid.”On the one side are the ...

  • U.S. Nuclear Power in Decline

    Nuclear power generation in the United States is falling. After increasing rapidly since the 1970s, electricity generation at U.S. nuclear plants began to grow more slowly in the early 2000s. It then plateaued between 2007 and 2010—before falling more than 4 percent over the last two years. Projections for 2013 show a further 1 percent drop. With reactors retiring early and proposed ...

  • Biogas in Asia

    The development of biogas production and monitoring has had many twists and turns, from its early days in Germany to the heady days of support through the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM).   The fall in the price of carbon credits, which rewarded reduction in emissions of methane (CH4) - a potent greenhouse gas - and use of methane from waste as renewable energy, has hit Asia ...
