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.
Körting condensers, steam jet and water jet vacuum ejectors are established components in steam power plants. There have been innovative developments over the past decades and continously upgraded aggregates to lower energy consumption by optimising heat revovery in power stations.
Thermal Energy’s GEM steam traps and FLU-ACE heat recovery technologies have wide applications in the food and beverage industry. From breweries and bottling operations, to food processing, packaging, and other food and beverage operations, we can help you reduce your energy costs while lowering your greenhouse gas emissions.
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.
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%.
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.
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.
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...
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...
Biomass Power Plants generates power from biomass fuels such as wood pellets, bagasse and hog fuel. This fuels are susceptible to spontaneous combustion since it can occur at any stage of storage, production or transport. Early detection of fire or combustion is important for safety control.
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.
You`ll find Jeffrey Rader`s equipment employed in many stages of woody biomass processing. Woody Biomass is the residual waste wood that results from the lumber manufacturing process. It is burned in a boiler to generate steam that is used both in the lumber-drying process and to produce electricity. Jeffrey Rader is a leader in serving the electric utility industry with boiler feed systems (pneumatic and mechanical) for producing electric power from biomass materials.
Depending on the regulations, a steam boiler must be equipped with one or more direct and/ or indirect level gauges. With direct level gauges, the liquid level can be seen directly through a glass or mica window. The use of a transparent level gauge with background illumination gives operating staff a clear separation between the water and steam zones even when viewed at a relatively long distance. Bicolour level gauges (black and white or green and red) are very suitable for camera transmission to the measuring...
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.
