  • The Myth of Heat Illnesses

    If you have not already had a safety talk in your workplace about heat stress and related illnesses, you probably will have one in the coming weeks.  Summer is around the corner and temperatures are warming up.  You will probably hear something about becoming acclimated to the heat slowly, and drinking plenty of water. But if that’s all that you have been told about warm outdoor ...

  • Monitoring Leaks from Heat Exchanger - Paper Plant

    The Situation A Paper plant in the Eastern US uses 500 GPM filtered pond water for cooling lubricating oil in their paper line.  The now warmer water is sewer to an on-site pond.  Because the water is used to cool lubricating oil, the plant could not reuse the water in their pulping process for fears of possible oil contamination of the paper pulp.  The plant needed to be ...

  • Heating Value

    The lower heating value (LHV) or higher heating value (HHV) of a gas is an important consideration when selecting a gas engine or CHP plant. Gas engines efficiency is typically quoted based upon the LHV of the gas. Whenever a ...

  • Monitoring heat exchanger leaks in Paper plant - Case Study

    The Situation A paper plant in the Eastern United States uses 500 gallons per minute filtered pond water for cooling lubricating oil in its paper line. The resulting warmed water is diverted to an onsite pond. Because the water is used to cool lubricating oil, the plant could not reuse the water in its pulping process for fears of possible oil contamination of ...

  • Planning and construction of the Munich north combined heat and power plant

    The Munich North combined heat and power plant, construction of which commmenced in the autumn of 1988, was a project that set new standards in terms not only of plant diversity and output rating but also of technological design. The present paper attempts to give a general outline of the plant design concept, which combines the aim of maximizing plant operating capabilities with a commitment to ...

  • Thermodynamic modelling and optimisation of an irreversible heat driven refrigeration plant

    Thermodynamic modelling and optimisation of a real heat driven refrigeration plant is performed on the basis of the two considerations that: (i) it can be assimilated to the couplage of a power plant and a work input refrigerator; and that: (ii) the irreversibility of each plant can be regarded as due to a bypass heat leak taking place in parallel with an otherwise irreversibility free ...

  • Case study - Air-to-air heat exchanger provides plant heat and big savings

    OVERVIEW A food processing facility installed a new Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) for odor control from its roasting operation.  The oxidizer was designed for 95% thermal rate of efficiency and included supplemental fuel injection (SFI) which is used during low VOC loading conditions, to help save fuel cost.  The customer was looking at additional ways  to further ...

  • Heat recovery from wastewater

    Heat recovery from gray water is particularly important in water-intensive industries such as pulp and paper plants, dairies and breweries. Rather than flushing used water down the drain, consider whether a heat exchanging system can help you put that energy to work in your process again. Most plant operators arc aware of the need to save money and reduce the environmental impact of their plant ...

  • The Major Components of Heat Exchangers

    Heat exchangers are not only one of the most common pieces of equipment found on industrial sites, they are also one of the most important. Despite the name, heat exchangers are used for both heating and cooling and are actually used more often for cooling, especially on industrial sites such as refineries or processing plants. These pieces of equipment are not “one size fits all.” In ...

  • Is waste heat the silver bullet?

    The energy industry tends to get stuck on certain words. Silver bullet is one of them. Insiders and policymakers often like to say there is no silver bullet to fix US energy woes. We need a portfolio of solutions – renewables, efficiency, smart grid, transmission expansion, coal sequestration, etc. That may be true, but Tom Casten begs to differ. Casten is a bit of a rock star in the field of ...
