Enhancing Storage Capacity of A Chemical Terminal

BY SHIREESH SWAMI In one of the green field chemical marketing terminal located in Middle East, 29 chemical storage tanks were proposed to be installed in a very compact plot area. The client wanted to increase the terminal capacity to the extent possible in the given plot. It was neither possible to add more tanks […]

Advanced Seismic Analysis For Nuclear Power Plant Structures Using Inelastic Design Response Spectrum.

Inelastic Design spectra analysis is an approach to optimize the design of a non-safety related structure located next to safety related structure. TCE used this approach to qualify non-safety related structures in nuclear power plant projects to ensure that these structure do not collapse on nearby safety related structure under the occurrence of extreme earthquake […]

Brief aspects on different mercury monitoring techniques

The recent revision in environmental norms issued by MOEF made it mandatory for thermal power plants and process industries to measure mercury emission in air .Hence it is impervitive that proper understanding of mercury measurements technology and its availability in market is essential for the implementation of mercury measurement mechanism in plant This paper makes […]

Power Generation Facilities for a Remote Island

by  J.N. Ramprasad & Lakshmana Rao Providing reliable power to a remote Island in the midst of ocean is always a challenge because of its geographical location. The challenge becomes manifold if the island is a tourist paradise that demands pollution free, stable and reliable power supply all through the year without compromising on natural […]

Pathways & industrial approaches for utilization of CO2

-By Dr. S. Sakthivel Background: CO2 is a greenhouse gas and to reduce greenhouse effect, the CO2 emissions need to be controlled. Large scale industrialization has increased amount of CO2 that is being released to atmosphere. This is contributing to the global warming. It is therefore important that this CO2 is captured at sources e.g. […]

Electrical Energy is most common form of energy used in all walks of life including most […]

Design of Large Capacity Ultra Super Critical Power Plant

By Lakshmana Rao Coal fired power generating units efficiency improves with increase in steam parameters. To achieve steam parameters below the critical point (220.6 bara & 3740 C) sub critical technology is sufficient. However, to attain higher steam parameters above critical point, boiler technology undergone a paradigm change to deal with single phase flow unlike […]

Safety Integrity Level (SIL)study

By Sunil P Agarwal Process industry is continuously exposed to risks like fire, gas leak, explosion, injuries and accidents etc. which could cause fatalities or disabilities, environmental damage and financial losses. Safety Instrumented System (SIS) is one of the most important layers of protection against occurrence of accidents and hazards in process industries. It is […]
