Hitachi Plant Technologies Wins Contract for 32 Pumps for Egypt's First Supercritical Thermal Power Plant

The order covers manufacture and delivery of a total of 32 pumps, including pumps for boiler feed water and recirculating pumps, as well as four steam turbines for pump drive and 24 electric centrifugal pump designed for high temperature, high pressure

Fire Pump Priming Basics - Part 1

It is atmospheric pressure - 14.7 pounds per square inch absolute (psia) at sea level - pushing on the static supply source that ultimately provides the force to move water into the hard Next time, in "Fire Pump Priming Basics - Part 2," we will

An Energy-Storing Wind Turbine Would Provide Power 24/7

The primary energy comes from rainfall, which lifts water from sea as wind pumps) are still being used, especially in the rural United States. But because you cannot suck water up more than 10 meters from above (atmospheric pressure isn't high enough

How It Works: Water Well Pump

Jet pumps create suction in a rather novel way. The pump is powered by an electric motor that drives an impeller, or centrifugal pump then combines with the drive water to discharge into the plumbing system at high pressure. Because shallow-well

He’s Electric — Will A Revolutionary Black Box Turn Dale Vince Into Europe’s Elon Musk?

He considers the drive towards an electric pump. It side-steps the fundamental challenge of underwater generation. Making electricity in the sea is very hard, and expensive. We address the problem by using the power of the waves to pump high pressure

How a pump, sensor, and meter will change the way we recover oil and gas

In Shanghai, GE’s High Power Electronics For nearly a century, pumps utilizing centrifugal force have helped bring hydrocarbons to the surface. Reaching average depths of nearly 2,000 meters, these electric submersible pumps (ESPs) can be thought

The power behind the Industrial Revolution

English contingent This international effort culminated in the work of two Englishmen: Thomas Savery, who took out a patent in 1698 for a pump which worked by condensing steam in a cylinder to draw up water with properties of high-pressure steam.

Ending the End of Oil

Today's talk of looming oil scarcity and permanently high prices echoes oil field in the North Sea, Apache has boosted annual production by 100 percent to 80,000 barrels a day by installing new pumps to increase water flow. The techniques aren't
