U.S. Opens First Concentrated Solar Power Tower Plant in California
The United States first Concentrated Solar Power Tower Plant opened operations in southern California in 2010. Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) Tower Plants use an array of motorized mirrors to concentrate solar heat on a water tube boiler elevated 170 feet above the desert floor. The reflected energy produces steam at 850 psi, which is routed to a GE turbine, and then cooled in towers for re-use as boiler feedwater.View project
Reverse Osmosis (RO) Autopsy: What They Are & How They Can Help
The term sounds grim, but it's a good description of the analysis that can be performed on a fouled RO membrane. A membrane autopsy can be the key to determining how to prevent fouling of new membranes, and to maximize the efficiency of this key piece of water treatment equipment. U.S. Water Services performs this analysis in our analytical laboratory in Cambridge, Minnesota, and then issues a comprehensive seven page report of the results. The test is destructive, and the membrane element is not returned.View project
Cooling Tower Toad Significantly Reduces Corrosion During LayUp
Every year the cooling system for an industrial plant providing comfort cooling was shut down and frained for the winter months. Historically, during this shut down period the cooling water piping and equipment would experience severe corrosion. During start-up of the cooling system the next spring, iron flakes would peel off the piping plugging strainers and heat transfer equipment. This would interfere with the efficiency of the production process and cause an increase in maintenance.View project
