  • Solving waste oil management and removal problems in power generating plants

    If your plant is like most, it is doing a good job of preventing oily water waste and waste oils from escaping into the environment. But at what cost? As labor resources dwindle, operating and maintaining drainage systems, oil separators, and sometimes inadequate oil removal equipment is expensive. Paying higher than needed costs for waste oil disposal, filtration and water treatment due to these ...

  • Economics of tiny thermal power plants

    Thermal power plants is the main source of energy and electricity in India and almost all countries of the world. Most of the giant thermal power plants have capacity of 500MW to 1000 MW. Investment in such giant thermal power plants is Rs 100 million per MW including transmission lines and distribution lines. ( 60 rupees = 1 US$, MW=1000KW). So 1000MW thermal power plant costs Rs 100 million/MW ...

  • Development of one-dimensional computer code DESOPT for thermal hydraulic design of sodium-heated once through steam generators

    Once-through Steam Generator (SG) is a critical component of Liquid Metal Fast Breeder Reactor (LMFBR) plant. It is a counter current heat exchanger, in which heat is transferred from the hot sodium flowing on the shell side to water/steam in tube side. High pressure subcooled water enters the SG tube from bottom, gets heated up to saturation, goes through nucleate boiling, dry out and post dry ...

  • Wind Generators as Role Models

    Advanced speed control methods are available for the regulation of wind generators. Working together with SET Sustainable Energy Technologies GmbH, Sulzer made use of one of these new concepts on pumps for the first time and implemented it with great success on a feedwater pump in a refinery. Unregulated pumps consume unnecessary drive energy when demand fluctuates. By controlling ...

  • Mercury and other trace elements in Ohio River fish collected near coal‐fired power plants: Interspecific patterns and consideration of consumption risks

    Many coal‐fired electric generating facilities in the US are discharging higher loads of Hg, Se, and other chemicals to receiving streams due to the installation of flue gas desulfurization (FGD) air pollution control units. There are regulatory concerns about the potential increased uptake of these bioaccumulative trace elements into food webs. We evaluated the concentrations of As, THg, ...

  • Changing the energy game with the ‘power of one’

    Who among us has not eagerly described the smart meter to a non-energy person only to be greeted by a blank stare, or worse the retort: “Why would I want to track my electricity costs all day?” You try to explain the profound applications: smart appliances that talk to the power grid, consumer clubs that sell energy savings, your car serving as a power plant. But the conversation then ...

  • Remote controlled `Pit Hog™` dredge removing sludge from aeration lagoons at Los Alisos, California, Waste Water Treatment Plant

  • Invasion of the non-indigenous nuisance mussel, Limnoperna fortunei, into water supply facilities in Japan

    The aquatic nuisance mussel, Limnoperna fortunei, arrived in Japan before 1987 possibly with the Asian clam imported as food from mainland China. Now the mussel’s distribution has spread to two river systems in central Japan. Water authorities reported several cases of damage caused by L. fortunei. Most cases of damage were caused by dead mussels clogging small diameter pipes for raw water ...
