Generating power can mean the use of a diverse range of technology, from a simple coal-fired facility to the latest in nuclear plants. But all have one thing in common: the need to control heat and produce steam — and this generally necessitates using large volumes of process water. This article from Industrial Purification Systems discusses the use of modern filtration technology as a means to improving both heat transfer efficiencies and plant protection.

According to Steve Cupples of Industrial Purification Systems, industry worldwide uses water in many different ways and in different amounts; therefore, water-saving technology is, in many cases, used in multiple applications. The commonalities, however, are that highly efficient water-saving techniques are proven to not only reduce an organisation’s carbon footprint but also to make huge savings on energy bills and improve production and performance.
