Power Plant Generators: What is Excitation? Electric generators work on the principle of Faraday’s electromagnetic induction. The essential part of this principle is the magnetic field. The magnetic filed is produced from a DC power source from an Exciter that is part of the generator system. Read on for more.
Preventing Cold End Corrosion in a Boiler Using fuels with sulfur in steam generating units yields a potential hazard of sulfur corrosion at the cold end of the boiler. The severity depends on many factors like percentage of sulfur in the fuel, excess air, moisture in flue gas, etc. Many options are available to contain cold end corrosion
What is Isokinetic Sampling? Isokinetic or constant velocity sampling is the preferred method for determining particulate concentrations in fluid streams. Read on to find more about this method.
Natural Gas: How it is Processed, Transferred and Stored Natural gas contains about 80% methane and 20% or so of other hydrocarbons. It is found in on/off-shore oil and gas fields as well as shale oil deposits. The main source of NG is presently from the reservoirs in oil and gas fields where it is piped to the surface for processing to pure methane.
