renewable-energy-storage

Food and beverage manufacturers around the globe generate greenhouse gas emissions from high-strength organic wastes, much of which is too concentrated to send to local wastewater treatment facilities. To develop…


Power Industry Automated Scraper Strainers Filter Full Spectrum of Debris Sizes

Unlike backwash systems, scraper strainers reliably resist clogging and fouling when faced with micron-sized particles, oversized solids, and high solids concentration. The power generation industry often prefilters raw water from…


How to Prevent Bacterial Growth in Dry and Wet Cooling Systems

Accumulation of debris in water systems can cause dangerous bacterial growth and performance loss—this is how to reduce the risk. In cooling systems, airborne debris, such as dust and leaves,…
