    Water treatment for power plants

    The process of electricity generation from fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas is water-intensive. Between 40-50% of all water abstracted and used in developed countries is used in the generation of electricity. Thus, a reliable, abundant and predictable source of raw water supply to a power plant is a critical factor in site selection. Water supplies are required to provide various process waters for the following essential main purposes such as make-up water, cooling water for steam turbine condensers, and auxiliary plant cooling water.

    The primary application of modern water treatment technology is to maintain the integrity and performance of the power plant. Critical plant applications have water purity or conditioning requirements that must be adhered to for safe, reliable and efficient power generation.

    Experience has shown that integration of water technology treatments with power plant design can be very important in reducing operational problems and component failures 

    At power plant worldwide there are increasing limitations on water availability and environmental restrictions on discharges. This is expected to promote measures for water conservation and to have an increasing influence on water treatment decisions. At power plant, the recycling of internal wastewater streams can extend from the recovery of individual high-quality waste streams, which can be reused either directly or after only limited treatment, through to the development of fully integrated water/wastewater treatment systems for zero liquid discharge. However, the application of reuse schemes requires site-specific assessment, as not all waters may be viable options for recovery.

    Fly Ash - Industrial Vacuum

    Fly Ash can cause many problems. The Vac-Con & Vector Pneumatic Vacuum systems can assist and solve many of these problems. Our high-performance vacuum systems are manufactured in three basic configurations: Truck mounted, Trailer mounted, and Fixed/static installed. Any of these systems can be integrated into the existing power plant design. All of our vacuum systems can be utilized to solve your plant’s fly ash removal/clean-up needs and can assist in many other maintenance projects. All can be tailored to fit into your power plant’s specific needs. Vac-Con Truck mounted Industrial vacuum systems are equipped with large storage debris tanks with self-cleaning intake filter systems. The Industrial Trucks vacuum the waste products through existing manifold piping or with hoses attached directly to the debris tank. When fully loaded, the truck can then drive directly to the disposal site and discharge the waste products. The Industrial Truck offers a great amount of flexibility of operation and can be utilized anywhere in your facility for many different types of normal and emergency maintenance operations. The Vac-Con Industrial Vacuum Truck can be utilized on both wet and dry materials. The same Vac-Con truck can be used for removing Fly Ash from your plant, coal from broken intake belt conveyors, or used to suck wet muddy material from storage lagoons. The Vector Trailer mounted Vacuum Systems are designed to be used in several locations around power plants. The Trailer mounted Vacuum Systems connect to Manifold piping located in key areas within your power plant. The Vacuum systems move the waste products from the plant and deposit these products into moveable storage containers. The loaded storage containers when full can then be moved to the disposal sites for discharge. Vector Static Mounted Vacuum systems are designed to vacuum and remove Fly Ash and other bulk waste products through manifold piping from operational areas of the plant and deposit these waste products into collection storage silos for later transport to disposal sites. The fixed vacuum systems are electric motor driven and are normally installed as a permanent addition to in-plant existing conveying systems. Please contact us with any requirements you may have. We will evaluate your request and respond with solutions specific to solve your problems and fit your needs.

    Ultraviolet disinfection systems for the de-ozonation industry

    Ozone is an allotropic form of oxygen; each molecule contains three atoms of oxygen instead of the usual two.  Ozone is a powerful disinfectant and has been used commercially for the treatment of potable water since 1904.  It is produced on site in the same way that ozone is formed naturally, by the discharge of electricity during a thunderstorm.  A high voltage is passed across a gas stream containing oxygen.  This method of ozone generation is called corona discharge.  The energy of the high voltage splits an oxygen molecule (02) into two oxygen atoms (0) - which recombine with ordinary molecules of oxygen (02) to form ozone (03).

    Application package FLUXANA Ash

    This application package is a 'ready to go' calibration kit for xrf instruments. Fusion technology is ideal for analysing oxidic materials like ashes. It performs with the highest precision possible in xrf sample preparation. Primarily power stations and their control laboratories have to check the ash from the burning process of black and brown coal. Two standard DIN and ASTM methods describe the testing in detail. FLUXANA is able to deliver both methods ready from the bench. It can for example contain all parts to perform a complete ash analysis: - Calibration set ash prepared from CRM and primary oxides as glass beads - Calibration work performed by FLUXANA expert 3 days on site - 3x drift monitors for xrf instrument - 7x control samples for validation - Flux FLUXANA application packages include always the sample preparation method. If you combine our application packages with our sample preparation machines we guarantee the analytical performance of the package like a contract.

  • Agricultural, Storm and Highway Runoff

    The ability to collect useful data about sediment transport and other pollutants closely coupled to SSC (such as nutrients, e-coli, phosphates and nitrates) is dependent on the timing and frequency of manual grab samples during run-off events. Most sediment and pollutant is transported during a small number of storm events which are infrequent and unpredictable. When they do occur, trained personnel or the proper equipment may not be available to collect grab samples. An automated pump sampler can eliminate the need to sample manually, but for the expense of a rechargeable power system, the autosampler, and possibly a datalogger and a typical turbidity probe, you’re no better off. With an automated pump sampler driven by the DTS-12 digital turbidity sensor and controlled by the Axiom H2 datalogger, you obtain a better understanding of the water’s quality, while taking a minimum number of samples, reducing site visits and saving lab analysis costs.

  • Airport Environmental Monitoring

    Water pollution from airport run-off is increasingly coming under public and government scrutiny. As environmental regulations tighten, the ability to monitor for aviation fuel contamination from runway run-off has become essential.

    Monitoring sites at airports can be extremely challenging often with no power or telephone lines available and with limited access for maintenance. Chelsea’s robust UviLux Hydrocarbon Sensor with its low power consumption and high accuracy is ideally suited for this application. Installed at various locations around the airport, deployed with it’s own integrated anti-biofouling system, utilising the GSM network, the monitoring sites send data to a secure ftp site, where any internet enabled device can access the data. In this way the systems act as any early warning system allowing any hydrocarbon discharge to be detected in real-time.

    Optional environmental monitoring features include remote control to allow the user to turn equipment on and off, change the sample rate and detection range. There is also a facility to allow SMS text and email alarm notifications triggered by user-defined set-points together with customised web pages, data displays and automated data downloads via an ftp server.

    Airport runoff can contain high concentrations of various pollutants, in particular polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), the environmental levels of which have to be monitored. An understanding of the magnitude of contamination due to airport runoff water is important for the effective management of airport infrastructure. Chelsea’s robust UviLux Hydrocarbon Sensor with its low power consumption and high accuracy is ideally suited to the airport environment.
