Continuous, Real-Time TSS Monitoring Verifies Effluent Quality and Coal Ash Management Performance While Reducing Compliance Costs

VIEW ON DEMAND

Hosted By: POWER
Sponsored By: Xylem

As many power plants continue to struggle with the critical last step in their coal ash remediation processes – the final testing phase – some plants have successfully adopted the use of recently advanced sensor technology to measure real-time total suspended solids (TSS) to verify their discharge water is meeting specified requirements.

Having the ability to monitor TSS real time, and obtain accurate results that are repeatable and verifiable with random lab tests, allows for users to automate functions such as controlling pumps transporting effluent, or start and stop pretreatment processes designed to keep effluent within permit guidelines.

Condenser Tube Cleaning: Essential for Reliable Power Generation

VIEW ON DEMAND

Hosted By: POWER
Sponsored By: Conco

In order for a plant to maintain peak generation capacity, measures to prevent fouling or remove deposits must be applied. Early identification of fouling characteristics and a fundamental knowledge of cleaning system capabilities are essential in determining the most effective cleaning technology. Unique circumstances may require innovative solutions. The common causes of condenser tube fouling and the practical application and innovation of cleaning technology are discussed. State-of-the-Art methods for off-line mechanical tube cleaning are presented, and their effects on tube condition examined.

Managing Equipment Utilization in the Digital Age

VIEW ON DEMAND

Hosted By: POWER
Sponsored By: United Rentals

Managing equipment utilization has always been difficult, and in the Digital Age, equipment is valued as much for the information it can provide – about its location, use and performance – as for the task or tasks it performs. While some companies still manage rental equipment from a best rate or “3 bids and a buy” perspective, growing numbers are searching to leverage information in order to make more informed decisions on their fleet. In this webinar you’ll walk away with a better understand of where to look for opportunities to improve efficiencies on site and in the back office, what key performance indicators to monitor and how to leverage total control to drive productivity improvements.
