Environmentally friendly technology for power plants
04. November 2014 At the Power-Gen International conference and exhibition, GEA Heat Exchangers – at a joint booth in conjunction with six corporations active on the US market – will present environmentally friendly technology for power plants.
GEA Circumix Dense Slurry System
The unique GEA Circumix Dense Slurry System enables cost-effective and ecological management of power plant ash. This system mixes water with ash to produce a dense slurry mass that is pumped through pipelines to a disposal area. The Circumix system enables creation of a space-saving disposal site without fugitive dust, since DSS technology encapsulates pollutants. This technology, which reduces soil and water pollution, is highly effective for existing or new disposal sites.
GEA Wet Cooling Towers
The GEA Heat Exchangers portfolio includes custom-designed wet cooling towers that include counter-flow or cross-flow solutions. Cell sizes of GEA counter-flow cooling towers can be designed for 10 to 135 m³/min (2,700 to 36,000 GPM) and of GEA cross-flow cooling towers, for 20 to 75 m³/min (5,000 to 20,000 GPM). The application determines the material used – which may include wood, fiberglass, and stainless steel. All wet cooling towers can be erected singly or in series.
GEA Double-Tube Safety Heat Exchangers (DTSHX)
GEA Double-Tube Safety Heat Exchangers are effective for operational pressures ranging from vacuum applications up to more than 300 bar, and for temperatures below -150 °C to over 350 °C, depending on the models selected. They are employed for applications such as natural gas preheating for gas turbines and water cooling of transformer oil. Selection of the most suitable materials and/or their combinations enables cooling, heating, condensing, or evaporating of other media. The sensor system detects leaks in the empty spaces between the concentrically configured dual tubes.
GEA Energy Modular Compact Radiators (EMCR)
The primary application for GEA Energy Modular Compact Radiators is the cooling of stationary diesel power plants. The largest model offers cooling duty of more than 2.5 MW. The range profits from standardization and from modular design for the entire product group and is designed for high- or low-temperature applications. The modular coolers offer an extensive selection of unit dimensions, various options for optimal energy efficiency, low weight, and features for abated noise emission – to assure maximum coverage of customer expectations.
