  • What Is Zero Liquid Discharge and How Does It Work?

    Not every industrial facility that produces wastewater will require zero liquid discharge (ZLD). It is usually looked to as a last resort because it can be a complex process that requires a high initial investment. If a facility is located on a site that has severe water scarcity issues and/or astronomical discharge fees, it might be ...

  • Case study - Waste heat generates steam and savings

    OVERVIEW A coil coating facility purchased a new a 15,000 SCFM Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) which had a nominal heat transfer efficiency rate of 90% thermal energy recovery. It was designed with supplemental fuel injection (SFI) which is used during low VOC loading conditions, to help save fuel cost.  The facility was looking for additional ways to decrease their exhaust ...

  • Exergetic destructions in steam generation system: Azzour plant

    The aim of this research is to investigate the exergetic destructions of Azzour steam generation system. The exergy destructions (irreversibilities) of the steam generation system were analysed based on actual plant operating data.

  • Enhancing the Versatility of Steam Cleaners with Dry Steam Cleaners

    Steam cleaning machines are powerful cleaning systems that utilize the amazing action of hot steam to clean a large number of surfaces. Although hot steam is aggressive on dirt deposits, it is very gentle on surfaces. For this reason, it is great for use even on surfaces that can be damaged by harsh chemicals or high pressure levels. This makes steam cleaning equipment perfect for maintaining ...

  • Experimental investigation of flow-induced vibration in PFBR steam generator sector model

    The 500 MWe Prototype Fast Breeder Reactor (PFBR) is under construction at Kalpakkam. It is a liquid metal sodium-cooled pool-type fast reactor with all primary components located inside a sodium pool. Fission heat is transferred to a secondary sodium system in an intermediate heat exchanger, which is in turn transferred to water in a Steam Generator (SG). The PFBR-SG is a vertical shell and ...

  • Identification of a VVER horizontal steam generator using recurrent neural networks

    Although a large number of simulations have been developed for U-tube steam generators in Western pressurised water reactors, no suitable models yet exist for horizontal steam generators in VVER-type nuclear power plants. This research aims to use RELAP5 thermohydraulic code data to identify a horizontal steam generator via an intelligent structure named Nonlinear Auto Regression with eXogenous ...

  • Novel ion-exchange system softens produced water for steam generation

    As California entered a period of severe drought in 2008, the challenges of using thermal methods to extract heavy oil became compounded by the difficulty of securing freshwater sources from which to generate the high-quality steam that these methods require. In an effort to manage the crisis, then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger proclaimed a state of emergency and enacted widespread ...

  • What to See in A Grout Steam Cleaner?

    A grout steam cleaner helps clean tile and grout surfaces easier than manual cleaning methods. Modern vapor steamers are capable of cleaning baked-on stains, ground-in dirt, food droppings, coffee and wine spills, and more. Some of the modern machines can even sanitize the surface. These machines can get rid of the harmful microorganisms present on the surface. For getting the maximum utility out ...

  • Cogeneration steam power desalting plants using steam turbines

    This paper presents the reasons and merits of using cogeneration generation power desalting plants (CPDP), the different methods used to rate their performance, and their drawbacks. The ratings of the CPDP are crucial, because the fuel cost allocation between the water and power depends on the rating method used. The ratings are usually based on the first and the second laws of thermodynamics. A ...
