  • Energy From MSW RDF Pelletization a Pilot Indian Plant

    The generation of Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) is expected to rise manifold in the coming decade due to the rapid urbanisation & growth in population. By setting up a pilot plant in Mumbai, India, an indigenous technological solution has been provided for producing fuel pellets from the combustible portion of MSW. The RDF pellets so produced are coal substitute with comparative advantages over the ...


  • Data Centre CRAC unit efficiency improvements

    One of the main types of project Munters look at is energy efficiency improvements within the thermal management side. One of the easiest changes that can be made is swapping out the old AC powered motors for EC powered impellors. the reductions in energy is considerable, with some older belt drive unit changes measuring a saving of over 60% this is due to the design of the new impellors and the ...

  • Maintenance To-Do: Coil Cleaning

    A coil-cleaning program should be an integral part of maintaining some kinds of process cooling equipment. Most people think of coil cleaning as a building or facility prepares to turn on the air-conditioners for another season. Admittedly, spring is a perfect time to put such cleaning and maintenance at the top of the to-do list. Condenser and evaporator coils are an integral part of HVAC ...

  • What is a Rotary Tube Furnace?

    By definition, a rotary tube furnace is a heat-treating circular furnace, which rotates during heat-treatment. Samples are transported through the furnace in a circular path as they are heated. Rotary tube furnaces generally burn pulverized, solid, gaseous or liquid fuel into its working section, and then the heating gases created flow towards the sample. These furnaces feature a metal drum lined ...

  • Mixed MSW composting in transition

    WITHOUT a doubt, composting the mixed municipal solid waste stream is a “niche” business. It is an MSW management option that seems to be viable in very specific situations.
