THE BOILER HOUSE – A BASIC OVERVIEW OF A STEAM SYSTEM


The simplest boiler of all time.

The boiler is the heart of the steam system. The typical modern packaged boiler is powered by a burner which sends heat into the boiler tubes.

The hot gases from the burner pass backwards and forwards up to 3 times through a series of tubes to gain the maximum transfer of heat through the tube surfaces to the surrounding boiler water. Once the water reaches saturation temperature (the temperature at which it will boil at that pressure) bubbles of steam are produced, which rise to the water surface and burst. The steam is released into the space above, ready to enter the steam system. The stop or crown Valve isolates the boiler and its steam pressure from the process or plant.

HMIs Adapt to Reality on the Plant Floor


TwinCAT HMI software scales the display according to the device. Image courtesy of Beckhoff Automation.

Modern HMIs can offer easy-to-understand graphics, better event response and improved visibility throughout all levels of an enterprise. That leaves industrial plants with big decisions about how to leverage their HMI systems to boost productivity and uptime in the age of mobility, big data and the Industrial Internet of Things.

Trigeneration improving energy efficiency in Africa



In summary gas engine based trigeneration is a proven, successful technology internationally for delivering cost and carbon savings. Currently gas supplies are restricted to certain parts of the African continent but as this availability grows the potential to use trigeneration technology will increase further. Growing industries, particularly in the data centre sector provide the most exciting opportunities.

How Light Emitting Diodes Work


BY TOM HARRIS & WESLEY FENLON

Though they often come in tiny packages, light emitting diodes produce a large amount of light and are used in an ever-growing list of technologies. See more electronic parts pictures. ©ISTOCKPHOTO.COM/JAMERSONG

Light emitting diodes, commonly called LEDs, are real unsung heroes in the electronics world. They do dozens of different jobs and are found in all kinds of devices. Among other things, they form numbers on digital clocks, transmit information from remote controls, light up watches and tell you when your appliances are turned on. Collected together, they can form images on a jumbo television screen or illuminate a traffic light.
 

Basically, LEDs are just tiny light bulbs that fit easily into an electrical circuit. But unlike ordinary incandescent bulbs, they don’t have a filament that will burn out, and they don’t get especially hot. They are illuminated solely by the movement of electrons in a semiconductor material, and they last just as long as a standard transistor. The lifespan of an LED surpasses the short life of an incandescent bulb by thousands of hours. Tiny LEDs are already replacing the tubes that light up LCD HDTVs to make dramatically thinner televisions.

Centre mulls financial aid to Bengal for solar pump storage project


* Curated Information. Flash back story on solar pump.

By PTI 

KOLKATA: The Centre is likely to soon announce a package to help West Bengal set up pumped storage system clubbed with solar facilities with assistance from National Clean Energy Fund. 

“West Bengal has been discussing with us for setting up pumped storage systems along with solar generation facilities and has been asking for our support from the Clean Energy Fund. We have liked the idea and are in the process of preparing a package that would be announced in the next few weeks,” Union power minKOLKATA: The Centre is likely to soon announce a package to help West Bengal set up pumped storage system clubbed with solar facilities with assistance from National Clean Energy Fund. 

“West Bengal has been discussing with us for setting up pumped storage systems along with solar generation facilities and has been asking for our support from the Clean Energy Fund. We have liked the idea and are in the process of preparing a package that would be announced in the next few weeks,” Union power minister Piyush Goyal said at Global Bengal Summit today. 

“This will allow storage of solar power generated during the day that can be wheeled out during the night or at times when required and could be installed in all states,” he said. 

West Bengal has already installed a 1,000 MW pumped storage facility and has drawn up plans of setting up additional pumped storage system along with solar generation facilities at an estimated investment of about Rs 17,000 crore. 

The new project will entail harnessing solar power to pump water for generation of power during peak time and for the state was seeking the clean energy pump for it, officials said. 

The proposal is to set up pumped storage system at Turga in Purulia district and cost about Rs 11,000 crore and the state government has asked the Centre to fund 40 per cent of this project cost from the clean energy fund; another Rs 6,000 crore will be required to set up a 1,200 mw solar capacity at the same location, state power minister Manish Gupta said. 
Goyal, who was in Kolkata to attend the Global Bengal Summit, said Bengal is on the verge of attaining 100 per cent electrification under ‘Sobar Ghore Alo’ (electricity for all) scheme. 

The state is also in talks with the Centre for joining Ujwal Discom Assurance Yojna or UDAY, he said. 

On UDAY, Goyal said, “We have urged West Bengal to join the scheme and it would help the state reduce costs. Nationally, UDAY can save close to Rs 1.8 lakh crore and all of it would be passed on to consumers.” 
Gupta said the power sector in Bengal is not ailing as has been the case with some other states. “However, joining UDAY would help reduce our interest costs to around 8 per cent which is close to 11 per cent now. We will discuss with the centre,” he said.ister Piyush Goyal said at Global Bengal Summit today.

“Solar steam” generator outshines photovoltaic solar cells


Using light-capturing nanoparticles, Rice University researchers have achieved an impressive 82 percent conversion efficiency of sunlight directly into steam; a breakthrough they say will create highly cost-effective solutions for desalination, water purification and electricity generation. Detailing their work in the journal ACS Nano, the researchers say the solar steam method is so effective it can even produce steam from iced water.

Heat exchanger


A heat exchanger is a device used to transfer heat between a solid object and a fluid, or between two or more fluids. The fluids may be separated by a solid wall to prevent mixing or they may be in direct contact.[1] They are widely used in space heating, refrigeration, air conditioning, power stations, chemical plants, petrochemical plants, petroleum refineries, natural-gas processing, and sewage treatment. The classic example of a heat exchanger is found in an internal combustion engine in which a circulating fluid known as engine coolant flows through radiator coils and air flows past the coils, which cools the coolant and heats the incoming air. Another example is the heat sink, which is a passive heat exchanger that transfers the heat generated by an electronic or a mechanical device to a fluid medium, often air or a liquid coolant.

Corrosion in Steam and Condensate Piping


Corrosion in pipes can advance into the interior parts of the metal over time, which may lead to pipe thinning and eventually pipe failure if left untreated. Furthermore, corrosion by-products are often carried downstream in piping, which can contaminate the fluid, cause the erosion and further corrosion of piping, and clog valve orifices.
