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.
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.
Numerous technologies and products were evaluated for this application. A monitor with no moving parts, no significant effect from turbidity, and the ability to detect the lube oil at less than 1 ppm was determined to be the best solution. Fast, reliable, and accurate detection of lubricating oil in the water was needed.
Optical instruments called fluorometers can very easily detect and measure dissolved petroleum hydrocarbons in water, and at very low concentrations. As shown in the study below, TD-4100 series monitors are able to measure xylene continuously over four consecutive weeks with a direct correlation coefficient of 0.9967 compared to GC grab sample analysis.
All lines can be blocked over in time by bacteria in the water that is used for heat exchange during liquefaction and gasification processes, in LNG Terminals. And this can lead to an increase in costs due to the inefficient heat exchange.
The Biotechnology market is ever changing and on the leading edge of technology changes. New products are continuously under development and agitation and mixing is used throughout the process. A process may require any or a combination of the following: blending, solids handling including incorporation/dissolving/suspension, mass transfer, and solids and heat transfer. The scale for Biotechnology reactors and support units range from a few liters to several cubic meters and from small laboratory units to...
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%.
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.
Since 1988, Delta Hydronics has designed and installed numerous water heating and chilling solutions for life support systems using small equipment skid packages as well as large centralized mechanical systems for grow-out operations with mutiple heat exchangers and temperature requirements.

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.
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...
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.
