Power Generation Application Notes

Combustible Material Monitoring - Application NoteCOMBUSTIBLE MATERIALS MONITORING

Accurate measurement and control of operating conditions are key to safety and efficiency in modern power plants. Whether the fuel source is coal or an alternative type such as petcoke or biomass, there is a risk of unwanted combustion – potentially causing injury, damage, and downtime – wherever the fuel is handled, processed or stored.

AMETEK Land - Application NoteRECIPROCATING ENGINE GENERATORS

Reciprocating Engine Generators are a trusted method of providing reliable electric power for small-to medium-scale operations. Driven by the benefits of lower costs and risks, gas-powered reciprocating engines are increasingly being used in place of combined-cycle gas turbine power plants.

Industrial Boilers Application Note (EN)INDUSTRIAL BOILERS

Industrial boilers are used to produce steam, which can be used to turn electrical turbines to generate power or provide heat in an industrial process. In all cases, it is important to monitor and diagnose combustion conditions within the boiler to improve its operation, and safety. Key measurements can support the optimisation of the combustion process and minimise emissions. Monitoring the boiler can also provide important information on the refractory or waterwall condition

Opacity and Pm Monitoring in Emission Stacks - Application Note (EN)OPACITY AND PM MONITORING IN EMISSION STACKS 

Smoke and dust emissions from industrial plants, such as coal-fired power stations and industrial incinerators, damage the environment and pose a health hazard to humans. Subsequently these emissions are regulated by government agencies across the world. These include the Environmental Protection Agencies (EPA) in the USA and the UK. Globally, government agencies recognise the need for clean air and respond to the demands from the population for a healthier environment.

Application Note - Coal Handling SafetySTRENGTHENING PLANT SAFETY IN COAL GRINDING MILLS AND STORAGE SILOS WITH CARBON MONOXIDE MONITORING

Risks of unwanted combustion – potentially causing injury, damage and downtime – occur everywhere that coal is handled, processed or stored. Safe coal handling practices are designed to ensure that the fuel remains intact throughout its journey from the mine until the point at which it is ignited in the boiler.

	Portable Flue Gas Applications - Application Note ENPORTABLE FLUE GAS APPLICATIONS

Measuring flue gases – the exhaust gases produced when fuel or other materials are burned in industrial plants or power stations – is important for process control, efficiency and emissions monitoring. As the most accurate, robust and flexible portable flue gas analyser available today, AMETEK Land’s Lancom 4 provides an ideal solution for industries burning coal, natural gas, oil or biomass, including power generation, steel, glass and cement manufacturing.

Application Note - Coal Fired Power PlantsCOAL-FIRED POWER PLANTS

The safety and efficiency of modern thermal power plants relies on accurate measurement and careful control of operating conditions. This application note aims to provide an overview of the many technologies available for monitoring essential operations in coal-fired power generation and their respective limitations and advantages.

 







Application Note - Coke Oven Temperature MeasurementCOKE OVEN TEMPERATURE MEASUREMENT

High-quality metallurgical coke is a vital raw material for iron and steel production, affecting the furnace operation and standard of the hot metal. It is produced by heating coal in a coke oven in the absence of oxygen. Both the quality and quantity of coke, as well as the lifespan of the oven, depend upon uniform temperature levels, so these require close monitoring. Temperatures can be obtained by measuring through the flues using a hand-held pyrometer, or by direct measurement of the oven wall using multiple fibre-optic ratio thermometers.
