A mobile water filtration system and a mobile seawater desalination reverse osmosis (RO) system from GE enabled the Orlando Utilities Commission (OUC) to continuously treat power plant wastewater at the Curtis H. Stanton Energy Center during a planned outage.
Tube failure continues to be the leading cause of unplanned downtime in thermal power plants. Leaks occur in the tubes due to tube failures such as bending, cracking, bulging or wear. Reasons for the failures include ash, overheating, corrosion and erosion.
In our annual Cooling Capabilities Chart on Low Temperature Heat Transfer Fluids, we have compiled all the data you need to choose a fluid for low temperature heat transfer fluid processes.

When choosing which low temperature heat transfer fluid to use for your process, data such as density, film coefficient, viscosity, pour point and thermal conductivity need to be taken into consideration.
This technology is beneficial to power plants because it can treat FGD wastewater from any type of coal and removes the risk of meeting discharge requirements by eliminating liquid discharge to waterways.
