The Electrifying Idea of Waste Heat to Power Systems

the electrifying idea of waste heat to power systems graphic

 

Waste heat to power (WHP) is the process of capturing waste heat discarded by an existing industrial process and using that heat to generate electricity, with no additional fuel, combustion or emissions. Whenever an industrial process, such as those that occur in refineries, chemical plants, steel mills and general manufacturing, transforms raw materials into useful products, heat is generated as a byproduct.

What Is a Process Pump?

Process pumps are a valuable and integral tool in society today, but many people do not know what they are used for or even what they are. These pumps can vary in their size, shape and function, but are primarily used for transporting fluids like water and chemicals. They are typically stationary and can be custom designed to fit a specific circumstance, or used in a standard setting. Understanding what process pumps are and where they are used will give insight into one of the most frequently used devices in the world today.

Design and Applications of Plate Fin Heat Exchangers

Types of Heat Exchangers

The two most common types of heat exchangers are the shell-and-tube and plate-fin. In shell-and-tube heat exchangers, one fluid flows through a set of metal tubes while the second fluid passes through a sealed shell that surrounds them. The fluids can flow in the same direction (parallel flow), in opposite directions (counter-flow) or at right angles (cross flow).

Brand Spotlight: Universal AET Blower Silencers

 

Universal AET Blower Silencer 1

Noise generated by industrial processes is often more than just a nuisance. It frequently creates an environmental health and safety hazard to workers that can pose a substantial risk, including permanent hearing damage. In the industry, silencers are used to reduce noise from machines and other sources and are generally installed to meet EPA, OSHA or other occupational health and safety organization noise level standards.

There are many types of silencers, and each is designed to effectively and economically reduce the noise for a specific application.

Preventative Maintenance Checklist for Centrifugal Pumps

Preventative Maintenance Checklist for Centrifugal Pumps

row of red centrifugal pumps in factoryFluid pumps can be grouped into two general categories: positive displacement and centrifugal. Positive displacement pumps cause the fluid to flow by using a mechanical means to vary the size of the fluid chamber. Centrifugal pumps impart momentum to the fluid by rotating impellers. The momentum produces an increase in pressure or flow at the pump outlet.

Maintenance Advice from Heat Exchanger Experts

Maintenance Advice from Heat Exchanger ExpertsA heat exchanger is a device for transferring heat from one medium to another. During operation, there is an accumulation of undesired substances on a surface (fouling), which retards the heat exchanging capability of the equipment, enhances pressure loss and augments requisite pumping power.

Many industries use heat exchangers. A good heat exchanger supplier can assist you in many ways, starting with the selection process.

What is a Heat Exchanger?

A heat exchanger is a device that transfers heat between a solid object and a fluid, or between two fluids. Heat exchangers have a wide variety of uses, from home appliances to industrial plants.

Have you ever wondered how your pool stays warm on those cold fall nights without direct heat? A heat exchanger uses either a solar-heated water circuit or a boiler to heat your pool. Heat exchangers use conduction, a type of energy transfer, for heating.
