  • Study of available exhaust gas heat recovery technologies for HD diesel engine applications

    Diesel engines reject a considerable amount of energy to the ambience through the exhaust gas. Significant reduction of engine brake-specific fuel consumption (bsfc) could be attained by recovering a significant part of exhaust gas heat. Various techniques have been proposed in the past to recover exhaust energy: mechanical, electrical turbocompounding and Rankine Bottoming Cycles. In the present ...

  • Electrical Resistance Heating: a Hot New Approach to Soil and Groundwater Remediation

    Electrical Resistance Heating (ERH) is an aggressive remediation technology that can quickly reduce the mass of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in soil and groundwater by over 99%. The process is often used to clean sites where other technologies have had limited success. Larger ERH sites are cleaned within 6 to 12 months and smaller sites can be cleaned in half that time or ...

  • Solvent Recovery System Keeps Presses Rolling at World`s Largest Gravure Printing Plant

    When QUAD/GRAPHICS Inc. entered the publication gravure printing market, it followed the axiom of Daniel Burnham, the 19th century architect and urban planner, to 'make no small plans.' In 1985, the Pewaukee, Wis.-based printing company purchased two 96-inch web, eight-color, high-speed presses and installed them at its new printing plant in Lomira, Wis., near Milwaukee. Conventional wisdom at ...

  • 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 ...

  • Saving waste in the boiler house

    Burner technology has improved greatly in recent years. Older Burners had a series of cams and levers that were calibrated to provide specific amounts of air for a particular rate of firing. Being mechanical items, these wore and sometimes required calibration. They, therefore, had to be regularly serviced and calibrated. Generally, new burners use frequency controlled motors and cams to open air ...
