water turbine Applications

  • Industrial water Nickel & Cobalt purification

    Cobalt is a brittle, hard transition metal with magnetic properties similar to iron. It is mainly used as an alloy with iron, nickel or other metals to produce corrosion and wear resistant products for high temperature applications (such as jet engines, gas turbines, etc.). Cobalt is normally produced as a by-product of nickel or copper mining. The purity requirements for Cobalt do not allow nickel to exceed a concentration 0.1%. Earlier, the nickel was removed by lime precipitations, but as the market specifications became more stringent, ion exchange technologies have been applied.

  • Water tower retrofit for repair/replacement

    Cities, Towns, Sub Divisions, Mobile Home Courts, High Rise Buildings, and many others can use the Cycle Stop Valve (CSV) to turn any Submersible, Turbine, or Centrifugal pump into a variable flow, constant pressure system. The CSV maintains a constant pressure on the water system throughout a wide range of flow. Eliminating line breaks and leaks, while precisely providing any amount of water required, the CSV can conserve water as well as energy.

  • 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.

    Mechanical Evaporation

    Modern nozzle and turbine technology developed by EmiControls is also used as a basis for the evaporation of water. This might typically be needed in open-pit mining, for example, to deal with large unwanted pools of water. Special nozzles can be used to atomize the water for evaporation. Evaporation is also useful in salt production. The tried and tested EmiControls technology can make the rate of evaporation much faster than the natural speed of evaporation, which helps the operators save an enormous amount of time.

  • Power Generation

    Combustion turbines 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 shaft work comes out in the exhaust gases, so these have either a high temperature or a high velocity. A catalyst is often used to treat these exhaust gases to comply with emissions regulations. EmeraChem has installed OEM and after-market catalyst in over 240 applications
