  • Thermal oxidizers for natural gas savings - Case Study

    It’s in the news every day; the natural gas production industry is experiencing record growth. The gas reserves in the United States are thought to hold enough natural gas for hundreds of years and the gas and oil industry has improved extraction techniques that make gas production more affordable and less impactful on the landscape. Good news for the country and our environment. The ...

  • Thermal deoilers - Thermal deoiling replaces liquid based degreasing

    The Problem A major Automotive company was mandated to have an alternate technology for degreasing evaporator fins. They had, until recently, been deoiling metal parts in a conveyorized solvent based vapor degreasing line, but the state environmental agency mandated that the line be shut down on a certain date due to the excessive water and air pollution it generated. The company had ...

  • Application Guide for Thermal Desorption Systems

    EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Systematic guidance information on various currently available thermal desorption systems is not readily available. The purpose of this Application Guide is to provide (1) technical information on, design and performance characteristics, cost, associated regulatory compliance issues, and contracting strategies for deploying thermal desorption systems, and (2) to establish a ...

  • Ocean Thermal Energy and Water Production

    Introduction The scarcity of potable water is a growing problem worldwide, particularly in arid regions and among developing countries. Compounding this problem is the increasing contamination of freshwater sources, which comprise only about 2.5% of all water on Earth. Of this small portion, only 0.5% of the total fresh water available is found in easily accessible sources such as ...

  • Solar thermal power coming to a boil

    After emerging in 2006 from 15 years of hibernation, the solar thermal power industry experienced a surge in 2007, with 100 megawatts of new capacity coming online worldwide. During the 1990s, cheap fossil fuels, combined with a loss of state and federal incentives, put a damper on solar thermal power development. However, recent increases in energy prices, escalating concerns about global ...

  • Ocean Thermal Energy conversion and the company bringing it to market: clean water for our children

    Water is the most life sustaining resource on earth. Essential to all aspects of our human lives, it serves as the key ingredient in food and drink, helps us fabricate clothes, landscapes our favourite places, drives economic growth and feeds agricultural development. Our bodies themselves are 70% water. This liquid of life keeps us hydrated, catalyses crucial chemical reactions within our cells ...

  • Thermal waste gas purification of siliceous organic compounds - Case Study

    Example: Electrical industry Similar tasks: Electronic industry, Coating, Waste management When coating mica insulation materials, peaks of high contamination occur. The exhaust air containing organic compounds generates excess heat when oxidised in the regenerative thermal oxidiser (RTO). The properties of ceramic honeycomb blocks allow for the storage of that excess heat, for the ...

  • Ex Situ Thermal Treatment for Soil, Sediment, and Sludge

    The main advantage of ex situ treatments is that they generally require shorter time periods, and there is more certainty about the uniformity of treatment because of the ability to screen, homogenize, and continuously mix the soils. Ex situ processes, however, require excavation of soils leading to increased costs and engineering for equipment, possible permitting, and materials handling worker ...

  • Thermal oxidizer - Aluminum / alloy manufacturing company

    Epcon has extensive experience in designing and building Thermal Oxidizers for the Aluminum Industry. The Problem Gas usage kept going up and up over the years on the Thermal Oxidizer. Heat exchanger for hot air supply temperature from the oxidizer was dropping of over the years. Excessive heat loss on exterior components. The ...

  • Thermal Desorption Unit - Overview, Types and Applications

    Thermal desorption is basically a remediation technique heavily used to clean contaminated soils, sludge’s etc. This technique uses heat to vaporize the contaminants, and works only for volatile contaminants. These include typically organic wastes composed of hydrocarbons, such as coal tar wastes, chlorinated solvents, oil refining wastes, fuels, pesticides, and a lot other. In the process, ...

  • Technology white paper: immersible thermal dispersion

    Thermal dispersion mass flowmeters comprise a family of instruments for the measurement of the total mass flow rate of a fluid, primarily gases, flowing through closed conduits. The operation of thermal dispersion mass flowmeters is attributed to L.V. King who, in 1914 (Ref. 1). published his famous King's Law revealing how a heated wire immersed in a fluid flow measures the mass velocity at a ...

  • Soil baked to clean up contamination...

    Can an old drill site be cleaned up without adding truckloads of contaminated soil to the landfill? Chevron Canada will be using a technology called thermal desorption to clean up a site located 13 kilometres southwest of Pincher Creek. Leif Sollid, spokesman for Chevron, who is the operator of the site, said they considered two options for the clean up. The soil is classified as a non-dangerous ...
