  • Industrial Maintenance for Compressor Stations

    Transporting natural gas via pipelines is very safe and cost-efficient. However, in order for the transportation process to work properly it is imperative that the natural gas be kept at the correct pressure. To accomplish this compressor stations are needed at regular intervals. Let’s take a look at some key components of compressor stations as well as industrial maintenance needs. The ...

  • Case study - Spindle utilities module

    Business Situation The existing method of tracking utility usage at these industrial laundries was highly manual, unreliable, and time consuming. Total utility consumption from bills was entered into large spreadsheets and analyzed over periods that were often 3 months or more in arrears. The report merely told managers what they already knew—they had overspent on natural gas; ...

  • Chances for Bio-LNG

    Abstract An increasing effort is put into the utilization of organic waste streams in anaerobic digesters, producing useful products such as fertilizers and biogas. It becomes increasingly attractive to upgrade biogas to natural gas quality and consequently liquefy the gas to Bio-LNG. DMT Environmental Technology has been developing biogas treatment plants for over 25 years, closely ...

  • Making Every Drop Count: Unitywater uses leak detection as a foundation for condition assessment

    It stands to reason why many utilities respond to leaks only after they receive a call about water gushing from a street or a complaint from a customer about a damp basement, or other signs of visible leakage. Human nature reflects the adage that is often easier to respond to an ...

  • Natural Gas Overlooked in Obama's Clean Power Plan

    NatGas: The Unnoticed Bridge to Achieving Obama's Clean Power Initiative Los Angeles, CA – (September 18, 2015) – It is now apparent that the Obama Administration’s Clean Power Plan aims to significantly reduce the amount of power generated by coal. It’s a game changer for utilities, mining companies and equipment suppliers. And, it’s ...

  • Recycling Using Antifreeze with Electrodionization

    Recycling used antifreeze makes sense for two reasons: 1) It is cost-effective, and 2) It saves resources. Ethylene glycol, the primary active ingredient in antifreeze, is produced from natural gas, which is a finite, non-renewable resource. For businesses that use a lot of antifreeze, like automobile repair shops, setting up an antifreeze recycling program can significantly reduce management ...

  • Upstream Particulate Removal for Rtos on Direct-Fired Osb Dryers – How much is enough?

    Abstract Since 1994 Regenerative Thermal Oxidizers (RTOs) have been applied to direct wood-fired OSB dryers for the purpose of VOC abatement. In early direct wood-fired OSB dryer applications many OSB producers felt that upstream particulate control was not necessary. However, the ash from the combustion of wood waste created a host of new operational problems for the RTO systems. This paper ...
