    Machine condition monitoring for power generation

    Power plants are expected to operate 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Downtime and equipment derating (when a generator fails to deliver power at its rated capacity) can cost a power plant thousands of dollars per hour. The cost of replacing failed equipment is also extremely high. Vibration analysis by itself is not enough to anticipate catastrophic failures. Oil analysis is often able to detect problems at a much earlier stage than vibration analysis. This is why more and more power plants are bringing oil analysis capabilities in house.

  • Water Monitoring and Flow Measurement Systems for Water Power

    Hydro power contributes to supplying approximately 3,5 per cent of electric energy generated worldwide. Its share in power generation from renewable resources lies at 18 per cent and will continue to grow as resources of fossil fuels are depleted. Hydro electric performance depends essentially on the usable altitude difference between upper and lower reservoir, and hence the resulting water flow. In order to use the “fuel” water in an optimal way, the flow velocity has to be monitored without any interruptions. Ultrasonic flow meters, flow sensors and clamp-on flow meters (OR clamp-on technology) are ideal for accurate flow metering and flow monitoring.

  • Moisture Monitoring for Nuclear Reactors

    The Advanced Gas Cooled Reactor uses carbon dioxide gas to transfer heat from the nuclear fission core to the water boiler for steam generation. The moisture content needs to be monitored to avoid corrosion damage, and continuous moisture monitoring acts as a boiler leak detector or bulk moisture meter.

  • CH4 Monitoring in Air

    CH4 (Methane) is a colorless, odorless natural gas that is used in a wide variety of industrial applications such as power generation and chemical production. It is also a byproduct of many biological and geological processes, fracking, and gas drilling. It is highly flammable and creates amounts of carbon monoxide as its combustion byproduct. Methane needs constant monitoring in waste water treatment (for co-generation) and to ensure proper process control (e.g. to determine burning efficiency). A quality CH4 analyzer that is able to provide continuous monitoring is a perfect solution for this.

    Machine condition monitoring for municipalities

    Overview

    Cities and towns are often responsible for maintaining critical assets such as water and wastewater treatment facilities and power generation plants. Oil analysis on this critical equipment as part of a robust maintenance program is a very cost effective way of failure avoidance. Additionally, greater emphasis on environmental conservation and a focus on delivering critical services while operating under reduced budgets leads municipalities to activate these programs. Spectro oil analysis solutions are used by many municipalities to monitor treatment plant gearboxes and backup diesel generators, and avoid costly lubrication mixups.

    Industrial solutions for the carbon dioxide (co2) lasers

    Carbon Dioxide (CO2) lasers are high power lasers, usually used for cutting of ferrous and non-ferrous metals. High-performance gas flow control is a key requirement for achieving high cutting performance with CO2 lasers. Gas flow control plays an important role for mixing key gases at a number of locations with a CO2 laser: Beam Generation: The gas mixture used as the emitting medium usually consists of CO2, He and N2. Most laser manufacturers specify a minimum required purity for the beam generation gas mixture, which is typically > 99.99%. A highly-accurate gas mixing control is therefore necessary, either for production of pre-mixed gas cylinders, or for in-situ mixing within the laser unit.

  • Measurement solution for CO2 capture by amine absorption

    The act of capturing and storing CO2 produced from large scale combustion plants such as power stations is becoming more and more favourable and feasible. One of the most common post-combustion CO2 capture methods is by absorption. The absorption plant can be added on to the existing combustion process, with the flue gas first passing through an absorption column where the CO2 reacts with an absorber. Amines of different types are used as the absorber. An amine CO2 capture plant can capture as much as 90% of the CO2 emitted from the power station and so has a real benefit for the environment. Having said this, care needs to be taken to ensure that amine emissions themselves are monitored, managed and prove no extra damage to the environment. Research is on-going to develop new amines or mixtures of amines to reduce emissions. The most common absorber in use in today’s first generation of industrial pilot plants is Monoethanolamine (MEA).

  • Measurement solution for hydrogen fuel cell testing

    As the alternatives to fossil fuels for power generation and automotive power become more widespread and preferred, so has increased the research and testing of hydrogen gas in fuel cells. The hydrogen (H2) gas used in fuel cell has to be free of impurities in order to make the fuel cell as efficient as possible and so quality thresholds have been set in legislation. Such legislation as SAE J2719 provides hydrogen fuel quality standards for proton exchange membrane (PEM) fuel cell vehicles. If impurities above these thresholds are present in the H2 fuel then there is a risk of not only making the cell inefficient, but also unrecoverable back to its peak operating voltage as the fuel cell electrode becomes poisoned.

    High quality gas sensor solutions for landfill

    State-of-the-art systems enabling easy monitoring of CO2 and CH4 gases. Capped Landfill Sites produce a range of gases, mostly methane and carbon dioxide. Legislation requires that these gases are safely removed from beneath the cap to avoid a physical explosion due to the build-up of pressure beneath the cap. Safe disposal usually entails burning such as flare stacks, internal combustion engines or by processing to produce Methane gas fuel. For large sites with access to power distribution infrastructure internal combustion engines are used to generate electricity which is fed into the local electricity grid. All of the above safe disposal process require the measurement of the Methane content (and in many cases the CO2 concentration). Edinburgh Sensors provide gas sensors for both Methane and CO2 that can be integrated into landfill gas processing systems enabling easy monitoring of these gases.
