Limestone Forced Oxidation System Upgrades

We continue our series of articles on wet FGD upgrades with a discussion on limestone forced oxidation systems.

Learn how existing absorber systems can be converted to LSFO to produce a stable gypsum byproduct which can be sold for use in the manufacture of wallboard or to the cement industry.


Factors that Affect ESP Collection Efficiency and Ways to Improve Performance

In Part 1, we reviewed the basics of ESP operation. This new article explores design and operational problems that will negatively affect the collection performance of an ESP. It will also outline potential modifications to help improve performance and efficiency.


Basics of ESP Operation

An electrostatic precipitator (ESP) is an effective method of particulate collection in power generation applications. Its history dates back to the early 20th century. Of course, technology upgrades to enhance performance have continued for nearly as long. We have prepared a two-part article discussing ESP operation and some of the available upgrades and modifications now available for new and existing installations. Read Part 1 of this series which covers the basics of ESP operation.


B&W shores up new projects in Bangladesh

There’s no mountain high enough, no valley low enough, and no river wide enough to keep us from trying to find a steam generation system’s ‘fountain of youth’ and restore units to peak performance. 


Design for Constructability

The term Constructability is defined as a process of optimum integration of construction knowledge and experience into project planning, design, procurement, and field operations to achieve overall project objectives. Read our latest Learning Center article on how designing for constructability can help minimize impacts and improve productivity through the elimination of rework and/or corrective action, improve material deliveries, and take advantage of modularization.
