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.
Without controls, the combustion of solid fuel (coal) to generate power results in the emission of carbon dioxide (CO2), sulfur dioxides (SO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx), particulate matter, mercury, lead, cadmium, carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and arsenic. This is why it is critically important for solid fuel power plants to comply with stringent environmental standards by utilizing the optimal technologies for emissions management, environmental air pollution control, and fluid handling and...
The solar panel manufacturing industry includes owners and operators of solar-power-generating facilities in the form of either photovoltaic panels or solar thermal power stations that make use of mirrors or lenses to concentrate the sun`s energy. Operators then sell the energy to downstream customers. These businesses require systems and solutions to meet their photovoltaic panel manufacturing process emissions and pollution control challenges, including volatile organic compound (VOC) abatement; and acid gas...

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’...
Fundamental changes are evident in the power industry. From a highly regulated and monopolistic industry, it is evolving rapidly into a marketplace defined by increasing competition and deregulation. Technology providers should be in the game allowing power companies to focus on their core business, producing electricity at maximum efficiency.
Boilers and Combustion Research A fuel source burning with oxygen to produce carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and water is an equation from school science lessons but looking into the fuel temperature and oxides of nitrogen produced along with the CO, CO2 and O2 is work that is being carried out by boiler makers, power generators and all sorts of industrial applications every day.
Within the nuclear industry there are ongoing operational challenges and potential hazards associated with environmental emissions and the protection of the workforce, such as high temperatures, high radioactivity, high solids loads and chemically aggressive environments. Therefore the industry demands exceptional levels of technical expertise and quality, in conjunction with specific skills to solve many of its most intractable problems.
