Tag: boilers

A boiler is a closed vessel in which water or other fluid is heated. The fluid does not necessarily boil. (In North America the term “furnace” is normally used if the purpose is not actually to boil the fluid.) The heated or vaporized fluid exits the boiler for use in various processes or heating applications, including water heating, central heating, boiler-based power generation, cooking, and sanitation.

A Growing Trend

A Growing Trend

Cogeneration systems, also known as combined heat and power, have traditionally been installed by larger industrial users with high steam and power demands and by smaller, institutional users such as universities and hospitals. Since the early 2000s, smaller industrial and commercial companies have discovered cogeneration utilizing natural gas-fired reciprocating engines,

Landfill Gas Treatment Systems

Landfill Gas Treatment Systems

Prior to conversion, limited treatment is required for direct use of landfill gas (LFG) in boilers or engines. Primary treatment steps may include dehydration and filtration to reduce moisture and particulates, as well as hydrogen sulfide and/or volatile organic compound (VOC) removal.

Solar and Energy Storage Financing for Schools

Solar and Energy Storage Financing for Schools

Jason Coughlin, a solar analyst at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, was coauthor of a 2011 report, “Solar Schools Assessment and Implementation Project: Financing Options for Solar Installations on K–12 Schools.”

“Schools have continued to install solar using power purchase agreements (PPAs) and the trend is to continue seeing third-party installations,” says Coughlin.

Cogen Case Study: Ronald McDonald House, New York City

Cogen Case Study: Ronald McDonald House, New York City

What began in 1974 as a Shamrock Shake-driven fundraiser to help families with sick children is today a network of 322 Ronald McDonald Houses in 57 countries. The first Ronald McDonald House (RMH), in Philadelphia, PA, was meant to serve as a “home away from home” for families spending time

Gas Turbine Design for Challenging Environments

Gas Turbine Design for Challenging Environments

Selecting a turbine to fit the environment it will operate in is really all about designing the right air filtration system to protect the gas turbine and compressor components. Filtration systems should be adapted to the specific site conditions to provide the best possible protection and optimized engine performance.

There is no “all-in-one” filter. There
