  • Pumps for synthetic heat-transfer liquids

    As soon as the temperature in a heat-transfer system becomes too high for water, a plant operator must choose between petroleum-based or synthetic oils as the heat-transfer liquid. When modern petroleum oils are used, systems with feed temperatures up to about 300 °C can stay in service for their entire service life with one filling and with virtually no maintenance. Once feed temperatures ...

  • Energy and exergy analyses of a supercritical power plant

    Energy and exergy efficiencies of a supercritical power plant have been studied in this paper. The effect of ambient weather condition was considered on the condenser pressure. It was shown that high ambient temperature has more adverse effect on the exergy efficiency than the energy efficiency. As ambient temperature increases, the exergy efficiency of the boiler, condenser, heaters and feed ...
