Level Solutions for Turbine and Compressor Wash Skids

Industrial gas turbines are used in plants throughout the power industry. While these turbines can be very effective in generating power, fouling on the compressor blades of a gas turbine can diminish performance of the turbine and reduce the power output of the plant.

Eliminating Hidden Maintenance Costs With Condensate Recovery Process Level Control

The benefits of any condensate recovery system are well documented in industries relying on steam generation for their processes. Condensate has real value in that every gallon recovered spares the cost of additional makeup water, makeup water treatment and/or wasteful discharge to municipal or other systems

Vulnerabilities in Boiler and Steam Drum Level Control Technology

Technologies historically used for boiler and steam drum level control rely on inference or buoyancy to determine the level. This in itself leaves them vulnerable to process dynamics (specific gravity, pressure, temperature, etc.) or limits their ability to precisely manage the level for improved fuel economy.

Webinar: Optimize Your Steam Generation Cycle and Condensate Recovery Process

In commercial and heavy industries, steam production can represent 10-60% of total energy consumption. U.S. Department of Energy surveys show that minor adjustments in process management can incrementally improve production efficiency. The steam generation cycle and condensate recovery process represent critical areas of opportunity for cost savings and better energy management.

Optimizing the Steam Power Generation Cycle

Steam is today’s utility player in the industrial energy arena. Steam power generation is so essential to industry that it comprises 83% of the total energy used by the pulp and paper segment (57% for chemicals and 42% for refining). Steam is ubiquitous because it’s industry friendly. It’s intrinsically safe, flexible, economical, aseptic and environmentally benign.
