Power Generation

Fouling of pipes and heat exchanging surfaces lowers the thermal efficiency of the system. Fouling also increases the friction losses and induces erosion, corrosion, and energy waste by increasing the demand for a higher flow rate. Additional problems include the plugging of spray nozzles, bonding of sensors and analyzers as well as the wearing down of pump gland seals, scrubbers, misters, membranes, and ion exchange columns. These issues cause unscheduled shutdown for maintenance and cleaning.

Automatic Filters, Inc. offers one of the simplest and most convenient ways of solving these problems in the most cost-effective way. Filtration to 5 micron.

Self-Cleaning Filters Permit Avista to Use River Water to Cool Compressors

The Cabinet Gorge Dam was doing some retooling a short time ago and they had to make some important decisions on filtering. The dam is the second largest of eight hydroelectric developments operated by Avista, a major electric and gas utility headquartered in Spokane, Washington.
