  • Supercooled Liquid Water is Hazardous to our Health!

    What is Supercooled Liquid Water? Supercooled Liquid Water (SLW) refers to water droplets in a cloud that can stay in a liquid state at below freezing temperatures. If an airplane flies into these SLW droplets, icing on the wings and airframe can occur. ...

  • Top 5 Differences between Micro Pulse LiDAR and Ceilometer Technology

    If you are evaluating backscatter LiDAR sensors for measuring aerosols, cloud vertical structure, and planetary boundary layer (PBL) heights, what factors should you consider in your comparison? It really comes down to a choice between the traditional analog technology used in ceilometers and the more recent advanced technology found in Micro Pulse LiDAR (MPL) sensors. ...

  • 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 ...

  • Top ten technologies for 2007

    Technology breakthroughs continue to come with what appears to an exponential rate. Some 30 years ago, recycling wastewater from a manufacturing operation and 'zero' discharge were no more than a dream. A fine filter was something that was used only in laboratories by qualified technicians. If you had organic emissions, they were burned in flares, not RTOs. We no longer have to use boilers and ...

  • Challenge #3 - Power Industry, Condensate Polishing

    A University installing new turbines for their expanded power plant was adding a new Cogeneration Facility, and needed to replace their existing water treatment system. The project required demolition of the existing system, temporary water service for their existing boiler feed equipment, and full treatment of water to produce 240,000-lb/hr steam. The system design had to be flexible enough to ...

  • Real Time TOC Analysis in Steam and Condensate

    Executive Summary Steam in petro/chemical plants could be contaminated with hydrocarbons (TOC = Total Organic Carbons) from various sources. In any case this is a sign for defects in the process, whether it they occur in the heat exchanger, the blow down vessel, the condensate recovery or other parts of the system. Conventional solutions to monitor such contaminations use TOC- ...

  • The combined effect of changes in the condenser cooling seawater temperature, fouling and salinity on the thermal performance of a pressurised water reactor nuclear power plant

    This study presents the effect of temperature, fouling factor and salinity of the condenser cooling seawater and adverse effect on the thermal performance of a nuclear power plant. These are the most important factors affecting the condenser performance. The study is carried out on a pressurised water reactor nuclear power plant. The results showed that a loss in the plant output power and ...

  • Exergy and exergo–economic evaluation of Isfahan steam power plant

    The objective of this paper is to perform the exergy and exergo–economic analysis of Isfahan steam power plant. A simulation program is used for modelling the Isfahan steam power plant in Iran. The exergy balance is used to estimate the exergy destruction in each component of the plant. Moreover, the cost balance equations are solved to determine the cost of exergy destruction in each part of the ...

  • Mechanical vapour compression desalination plant at Trombay

    Desalination plants based on Mechanical Vapour Compression (MVC) technology are inherently the most thermodynamically efficient. The thermodynamic efficiency of the MVC process is derived from the application of the heat pump principle. A single unit of a two-effect MVC desalination pilot plant of 50 m?/day capacity has recently been commissioned at Trombay, Mumbai. The desalination unit is very ...

  • Minas Basin Pulp and Power Co., Hantsport, Nova Scotia, Canada

    Paper Dryer Application Johnson Controls Inc. implemented Thermal Energy’s FLU-ACE heat recovery technology at Minas Basin Pulp and Power Co. in 2006 to recover waste heat from the paper making dryer and use it in the manufacturing process to offset the mill’s oil consumption. The award-winning project uses a Flu-Ace direct contact condensing tower to recover both sensible and latent heat from ...

  • Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) Measurement

    Definition Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) is a measure of the sum of all inorganic and organic substances in a liquid in molecular, ionized or micro-granular colloidal suspended form. The solids must be small enough to survive filtration through a sieve the size of two micrometer.  TDS solids are normally found in all freshwater systems. Major applications of TDS are: at low levels the ...

  • TB 39: Kirin beer uses liqui-cel for o2 and co2 removal from water in 3 breweries

    It is becoming more common that systems operate with less chemical usage for food and beverage applications. People are very aware of environmental considerations when using chemicals and companies are looking for alternatives to chemical usage. Kirin Beer has been successfully using Liqui-Cel® Membrane Contactors for CO2 and O2 removal in their Okayama, Hokuriku, and Kobe Japan facilities. The ...

  • Industrial water reuse opportunities and high temperature compatible membranes

    Process condensates represent a real value to the industry as it usually contains several items of potential savings, including but not limited to heat energy and water. In most cases the condensate has become contaminated with unwanted particles or with product carryover making it unfit for direct reuse in the process or as boiler makeup water. Conventional methods use heat exchangers for ...

  • Hydrocarbon in Water Monitors using Fluorescence

    Hydrocarbon in Water Monitors using Fluorescence are capable of detecting hydrocarbons as low as 5 Parts per Billion and as high as 10,000 Parts per Million depending on the application.  Because only the target hydrocarbons will fluoresce, these monitors have no significant affect due to water turbidity (rust, dirt, gas bubbles, soot, etc.).  Fluorescence monitors provide a measurement ...

  • Industrial Wastewater Treatment: Priority pollutant behaviour in on-site treatment systems for industrial wastewaters

    The majority of wastewaters deriving from the chemical industry consist of aqueous discharges produced during the physico-chemical processing of synthetic mixtures involving operations such as filtration, centrifugation, extraction and/or distillation. The wastewater streams, referred to as ‘process waters’ can include mother liquors, washing waters from the purification of products, ...
