  • The use of energy is being shaped by environmental issues including the fear of global warming. This has resulted in the development of renewable energy sources and more efficient building technology. Examining trends in energy efficiency, this book explores energy technologies and fuels, their prospects in a world with greenhouse gas restrictions. It looks at the technical and economic tradeoffs of traditional renewables such as wind and solar, as well as large scale PV and concentrated thermal power. It also considers biomass technologies. For each of these technologies, it discusses planning, siting, installation, operation and maintenance, health and safety, power conditioning, and efficiency innovations.

      Gas Usage & Value

      Por R$ 227,70 3x de R$ 75,90 ou R$ XX,XX à vista

      Gas Usage and Value addresses issues concerned with the development and sale of natural gas resources. The text overviews the world's gas reserves and outlines the principal issues concerning composition and the cost of producing well head gas to make a specification product or extract particular components; operation and cost of gas plants; and the cost of transporting the gas to an end-user. Separate chapters deal with the use of gas in the downstream process industries. Gas usages for various technologies are described and alternatives are critically compared. Costs for the downstream process industries are described on a self-consistent basis that allows comparison of alternatives. Estimates are presented for each technology on the cost of production as the gas price changes. Case studies are included to illustrate variations or specific points of relevance.

      Dry Gas Seals

      Por R$ 138,70 3x de R$ 46,23 ou R$ XX,XX à vista

      Despite the fact that the use of dry gas seals in process gas centrifugal compressors has increased dramatically over the last 20 years, the technology remains misunderstood by many in the industry. Dry gas seals operate with clearances measured in microns, much less than the thickness of a human hair! While dry gas seals can be very problematic if not properly applied at the time of plant, process, and/or compressor design, the many successful installations are a testament to how trouble-free these devices can be when properly applied. Let author John Stahley help you take the mystery out of dry gas seals in this comprehensive new book. Dry gas seals are in used in compressor stations, processing plants, refineries, chemical plants, and more. The information found in Dry Gas Seals Handbook will help you make informed decisions regarding the application, operation, and maintenance of dry gas seals. This book presents a complete guide to the technology, from the principle of gas seal operation to “lessons learned” from actual field experience.
