Passive Dust Control Technology for 6,000 tph PRB Coal Transfer Chute

CCC Group, Inc
CCC Group, Inc., an industrial contractor and specialty engineering provider, announces successful design and replacement of a 6,000tph PRB coal transfer chute with new passive dust control technology, the Smart Chute® Transfer System with Air Restrictors (Patent Pending).

The new system had to handle a large variation in material volumes (2,500- 6,000tph) and varying moisture content.  As additional challenges, the head-chute design had to retain an existing magnetic separator and the project had an extremely compressed project schedule.

The CCC Group design team incorporated Smart Chute® Transfer System Technology through the use of Air Restrictor gates which automatically self adjust to material capacity variations.  The Air Restrictors cut off the pathway of the induced airflow by closing the gap between the material stream and the chute wall.  This design stops the air from rushing through the transfer chute without interrupting or decelerating the flow of material.  DEM was used to create three-dimensional models to simulate smooth coal flow and center loading for varying material volumes.

The Smart Chute® Transfer System is an elegant and cost effective way to passively control dust.  For more information about CCC Group email [email protected].

Englo Dust Extraction Technology: Rotary Car Dumper System

Engart, Inc.
New technology to control fugitive dust generated by rotary car dumpers:

Englo Dust Extraction Technology recently completed the successful implementation of its Wet Dust Extraction system to control fugitive Coal dust generated at a rail-car rotary dumper. This particular coal terminal has averaged handling approximately 14 million tons of coal per and for many years had experienced the typical problems associated with dry collectors that handle combustible dust. 

A major consideration for the implementation of the Englo wet system was the reduction of explosion risk associated with controlling and collecting airborne coal dust.  Other considerations for replacement of the dry collectors include problems associated with the wetted dust particles blinding of filter media and continuous bag maintenance.

Englo developed the larger wet dust extractor to accommodate the air volume requirements that are associated with rail car dumps.  These larger dust extractors will enable Englo to meet a need for rail car unloading facilities in all industries nationwide whether combustible and non-combustible particulate is the issue.

GERB Seismic Protection Systems for Power Plant Equipment

GERB Vibration Control Systems

As seismic demands for Power plants become more stringent, GERB is proud to introduce new seismic protection strategies for the North American Power Generation Industry. GERB dynamically uncouples power plant machinery from surrounding structures by the use of helical steel springs and viscous dampers to reduce vibration and protect buildings and machinery  inseismic and catastrophic events(i.e. plane crash).

Spring-VISCODAMPER® elements with special stiffness and viscous damping properties reduce seismic acceleration levels of turbine components and other safety or non-safety related structures. They improve seismic performance by reducing system frequencies and increasing damping resulting in lower accelerations and structural stresses. For turbine buildings, the integration of the turbine substructure into the machine building can further reduce stress levels in all structural members. Applications range from seismic protection of residential homes to air core reactors in substations, to spent fuel storage tanks in high seismic areas.

As an added benefit, implementation of GERB seismic protection systems typically yields smaller sub-foundations andfaster construction time. Visit Booth 711 for more information.

Since 1935, Lectrodryer has been designing, engineering, manufacturing auxiliaries for hydrogen-cooled generators.  Stop by our booth at Electric Power (Booth# 701) and check out our latest innovations to our products including the BAC-50 hydrogen dryer, the Gas Optimization System, and the Fast Degas CO2 System.

The BAC-50 was developed specifically to maximize the protection of the generator while minimizing hydrogen losses.  With unique closed circuit regeneration, it purges no hydrogen during operation providing valuable hydrogen savings. This feature allows for water removal measurement which can be used as an early diagnose of other problems.  The BAC-50 also dries during turning gear or offline operation.

The Gas Optimization System is used for controlling, maintaining and monitoring the generator gas. Centered on the BAC-50 Dryer, the Gas Optimization System can include such as options the components for gas control piping, purity analyzer(s) and generator monitoring equipment.

Lectrodryer’s newest product, the Fast Degas CO2 System allows for emergency degassing (under 20 minutes) of the generator as well as reducing the time and cost involved during outages. Installed systems have reduced the gas changing steps by as much as 6 hours as well as reducing gas expenses and emissions.

CENTRALIGN® ULTRA EXPERT: Reduce steam and gas turbine outage time using laser alignment

Ludeca, Inc.
CENTRALIGN ULTRA was specifically developed for the alignment of steam and gas turbines. The system precisely aligns internal elements with upper halves installed or off, for distances up to 133 feet. Accurate bore measurements can be acquired without interrupting other work taking place in the turbine; saving time over traditional methods like piano wires, micrometers and optical instruments.

CENTRALIGN ULTRA assures true bore center measurement and reveals bore out of roundness. Stable wireless data transmission ensures reliable and complete data transfer of information between the measuring sensors and the computer. 

Over long distances and extended measurement periods laser stability is subject to fluctuations through variations in air density or temperature. To ensure measurement accuracy, an additional fixed sensor constantly monitors the laser drift at the far end of the machine and automatically adjusts readings to compensate for such drift.

The CENTRALIGN ULTRA brackets are specifically designed for ease of use and extremely high accuracy. Brackets can be installed in magnetic or non-magnetic bores, and tops-on or tops-off configurations, with bore diameters from 4.75” to 166.5”.

The CENTRALIGN ULTRA is enhanced with the ALIGNMENT CENTER PC Software Bore Application with exclusive turbine specific features and customizable color reports.

Nozzle Tips Are Hot

R-V Industries, Inc.
To further enhance their position as a leading equipment suppler in the fossil power replacement parts markets, R-V Industries, Inc. of Honey Brook, PA, engineers have released another performance enhancing and cost saving OEM replacement upgrade.

By drawing from their 35+ years of experience in fabricating tens of thousands of fossil power replacements components for major electric utilities R-V has developed a proprietary self cooling nozzle tip for tangentially fired units. The Thermal Guard TM Nozzle tip extends the performance life of tangentially fired fossil power plants by drastically reducing thermal distortion of the plate work. The reduction of distortion allows for better control of combustion for a longer period of time.

Thermal Guard TM Nozzle design creates a thermal radiation barrier by capturing the auxiliary air, used in the combustion process, and directing it across the top and bottom of the exposed nozzle tip. This creates an air barrier across the body of the nozzle which drastically reduces temperature exposure from the boiler. The coal nozzle will have a greater service life guarded from thermal distortion.

R-V’s Thermal Guard TM Series coal nozzle tips have other value engineering built in; Contoured corners reduce buildup of coal and slag. Shielded corner welds are protected from direct boiler radiation. Inner annuluses are solidly welded for rigidity. Various erosion protections are available.

R-V’s Thermal Guard TM Series design is also available for tangential oil and gas fired power plants, air nozzles, and over fired air nozzles. Reduce maintenance outages by extending the service life your nozzles.

R-V’s diversification in major industries and their focus on “superior products and service at a competitive price” has enabled them to remain stable despite the poor economy.  R-V’s business model, quality and employee work ethic have helped them develop into a trusted partner for numerous Fortune 500 companies. It has also enabled them to earn awards for multi-million dollar projects over competitors who are much larger.

MANAGING YOUR PROJECT PORTFOLIO: Optimizing Investments Through A Managed Process

William W. Rutherford & Associates
At William W. Rutherford & Associates, our Project Portfolio Management is a process whereby new projects are evaluated against the existing portfolio for fit as part of the company’s project development and investment process.  Projects are assessed both for financial impact as well as alignment with corporate objectives and resource limits. 

Checking a new project’s fit for financial merits and alignment to the company objectives will quickly show if the opportunity enhances the existing portfolio, provides balance against the established direction, or is instead an outlier that doesn’t really fit with the direction of the company.  Because this process is transparent, the organization can see the merits or shortcomings of the projects against the goals of the organization.  This eliminates potential posturing by business leads to champion their own projects, and brings the organization toward a common investment viewpoint. 

Many organizations limit portfolio analysis to the occasional checkup and balancing efforts of the annual planning process.  Incorporating a formal Portfolio Management process will provide a means both to evaluate new projects as well as balancing the entire project portfolio against financial goals and corporate objectives.  Finally, used as the routine method for managing your company’s investments, Portfolio Management will increase your financial return, align the organization around the investment direction, and make the entire process of project evaluation and approval more efficient and effective. 

If you would like to more learn more about Portfolio Management or to schedule a meeting, please contact Steve or Mike per the contact information below.
