Texas Plant Saves $1M In Energy Costs
By Borja Blanco, senior VP, sales, Energy Recovery
Today, energy costs represent one-half of the total cost of oil and gas processing. By harnessing the wasted energy in your high-pressure environment, we can help you slash that cost by 25 percent, while significantly lowering your carbon footprint. And we have proof.
Pressure Activation Device Technology For Downhole Applications
By Fike Corporation
A common problem in oil and gas drilling, completion, and production is the failure of proper activation on downhole tools. These failures can result in lost productivity, safety issues, and significant cost to fix the problem. As wells continue to be drilled deeper, encountering higher pressures and temperatures, it is more critical than ever for correct tool activation.
Reduce Costs And Improve Emissions Compliance
By Rich Cada, Fox Thermal Instruments Inc.
Although manufacturers have made significant improvements in process heating efficiency, the total energy use for process heating is expected to increase. Accurate, repeatable measurement of air and process gases with thermal mass flow meters is key to improving accountability and energy management processes.
Condenser Restoration At Exelon's Schuylkill Station
By Kevin Shugrue, CTI Industries
In late 2007, CTI Industries was contacted to consider installing our full-length tube liners into the main condenser at Exelon's Schuylkill Station in Philadelphia, PA. The condenser at the Exelon Schuylkill Station is an older vintage CH Wheeler, two pass divided water box configuration with 16,500 tubes.
