  • District heating reduces carbon footprint – Case Study

    District heating is a system for distributing heat generated from a centralized location for residential and commercial heating requirements. The heat is often obtained from a cogeneration plant that burns fossil fuels, but increasingly these plants are transitioning to biomass. According to recent research, district heating is one of the cheapest methods of reducing carbon on the planet and has ...

  • Measuring Combustion Efficiency Properly on 90% + Condensing Boilers & Furnaces - Case Study

    Combustion efficiency is a measurement of how well any given fuel is being burned and converted into useful energy (e.g.: heat, hot water, steam). The calculations are based on 3 MAJOR Factors: Chemistry of the burned Fuel (e.g. Propane, Natural Gas, Oil, etc) The CO2 percentage by volume after the combustion process The NET ...

  • Monitoring leaks in Heat exchangers - Case study

    The Situation A California refinery produces xylene for use as commercial product and a precursor for petrochemical manufacturing. A primary component to the production of xylene is the isolation and purification of the chemical from a complex mixture of petroleum hydrocarbons. Steam based heat exchangers are used to process the xylene. Inherent to the design and rough duty heat ...

  • Quick response to assist nuclear power plant

    A US nuclear plant and their engineering contractor were faced with an unexpected challenge in the course of design work regarding installation of an emergency steam dump sparger in the plant’s Low Pressure (LP) condenser. During pre-outage reviews of the planned installation, it was found that an existing partition plate running nearly the length of the condenser was obstructing access. ...
