  • IAPWS/SCPWS - International Conference on Film Forming Amines and Products 04 Apr 2017 - 06 Apr 2017

    Location: KKL Luzern, Lucerne, Switzerland

    Presenter: David Addison

    The conference addresses operational personeel, technical managers, plant engineers, boiler operators and service proviers as well as manufacturers of components and chemicals.

    The event is dedicated to advancing the knowledge about film forming amines and products. Scientific papers and case studies will provide excellent insights into the latest developments in this field of cycle chemistry.

    David Addison will be presenting on the possible application of film forming amines and film forming products in direct contact geothermal power plant systems

  • 2016 IAPWS Meeting 11 Sep 2016 - 16 Sep 2016

    Location: Dresden, Germany

    Presenter: David Addison

    International Assoication for the Properties of Water and Steam (IAPWS) annual meeting and sub meeting of the IAPWS Power Cycle Chemistry (PCC) group

  • IEX 2016 Conference 06 Jul 2016 - 08 Jul 2016

    Location: Cambridge, UK

    Presenter: Judy Weir

    The SCI IEX Conferences provide the opportunity for the ion exchange manufacturing and service companies, end user and researchers to present papers on the theory and practice of ion exchange and adsorbents and to discuss the industry’s contribution to current practice and future industrial developments.

     

    Judy Weir will be presenting a paper at the conference that outlines the challenges of an ion exchange water treatment plant used to produce high quality make-up water for heat recovery steam generators (HRSGs).  These HRSGs produce steam for use in both dairy food production and electricity production via a steam turbine, at a large dairy products processing factory in New Zealand.  The site produces from raw milk, the largest volume of dairy ingredients in a single factory, anywhere in the world.  It also has a cogeneration plant comprising of multiple gas turbines, HRSGs and a steam turbine, which produces all of the sites process steam and electricity demand, with the surplus electricity supplied to the national grid.
