[ClickPress, Wed May 01 2019] For efficient industrial power plant operations, boilers as well as quality of feedwater play a crucial role.
The secondary side parameters were turbine first-stage impulse pressure, steam generator pressures and water levels, steam and feedwater flows, turbine-generator rotor speed, and turbine governor valves position.
Ontario Power Generation can now map the thickness of its feedwater pipes efficiently and accurately.
A = [G.sub.1]/[V.sub.1]; [G.sub.1]--flow rate of feedwater, [m.sup.3]/h;
With a pressurised deaerator system, feedwater can be heated to greater than 100[degrees]C without boiling off to steam, removing virtually all of the dissolved gases without the need for water treatment chemicals.
The WaterPro PS delivers Type I, 18.2 megohm-cm water at a rate of 1.8 L/min depending on feedwater flow rate and pressure, as well as the installed purification modules.
In this instance, feedwater will undergo pre-treatment, biological treatment, tertiary treatment including disinfection, and sludge dewatering by solar drying.
"The team will now focus on completing the fit-out of the condenser, including the installation of the duct sections, water boxes, low pressure feedwater heaters, and auxiliary systems.

TRANTER Inc and Westinghouse Electric Company LLC have entered into a teaming agreement to develop a new modular Shell and Plate Feedwater Heater (SPFWH) for use in the power industry.
Based on the foregoing, the main objective of the present investigation is to study systematically the effect of the processing variables, such as current density (i) and feedwater flow rate (Q), on the total cell potential (U), EC treatment time (f), and energy consumption (E) when processing natural groundwater extracted from Mexico's Laguna Region (also known as The Comarca Lagunera), located in Torreon, Coahuila, Mexico.
Thermal power plant working is based on Rankine cycle, where the thermal efficiency of cycle can be thermodynamically improved by increasing the mean temperature of heat addition, that is, by introducing feedwater heating systems.
