    For decades, the power generation industry has faced many challenges in meeting global energy needs.  The grower need for reliable power generation has never been greater. About 20% of the world’s electricity comes from renewable sources. However, most of the fossil-fuel based power generation is responsible for about one-quarter of total CO2 emissions.  Reducing CO2 emissions is an important aspect of power generation.  Industry must implement combustion control must be in place on diesel, natural gas, propane, gasoline, compressed gas, biogas, landfill gas, coal mine gas, sewage gas, and combustible industrial waste.  Harmful components like Carbon Monoxide (CO), hydrocarbons, and Nitrogen Oxides can be monitored with the right real-time gas analyzers for industrial off-gas, enrichment, and combustion control, to meet environmental compliance.


    Hydrogen is a rich source of energy.  Its popularity is growing.  Hydrogen purification and purity analysis requires high chemical purity of the hydrogen gas. Hydrogen fuel cell use chemical energy to cleanly and efficiently produce electricity.  One key issue with fuel cells is that the performance is dependent on the purity of the hydrogen.  While impurities in hydrogen must be monitored along many steps of the supply chain, only the final product dispensed at the fueling station is typically tested for the full suite of analytes listed in the ISO/SAE standards, as required by regulations. 

    Our high-performance TIGER OPTICS™ Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy (CRDS) gas analyzers are used in many demanding measurement applications from ultra-high purity electronic gases for semiconductor manufacturing to industrial and medical gases.

    Nuclear requires safety-critical process control.  From trace HCl measurements to comply with US EPA rules to continuous monitoring of ammonia slip for reducing the cost of abating NOx, we can deliver reliable emissions gas analyzers 24/7/365.  Our durable gas analysis solutions can help power plant operators quickly identify emissions gas analyzer problems quickly and reduce downtime. Be assured that our portfolio of CRDS gas analyzers can deliver the accurate and stable measurement of gas compositions such as CO, CO2, H2, and CH4 in the biomass gasifier to improve the gasification quality.  Our industrial quadrupole mass spectrometers provide accurate measurement of Heating Value (BTU), Wobbe Index/Density, Combustion Coefficient, Methane, Sulfurs, CO2 , non-methane organics, and even moisture.


    Flue gas desulfurization removes sulfur dioxide (SO2) from flue gas emissions of coal-fired power plants. Coal-burning plants cause environmental and human health hazard.

    Flue gas desulfurization wastewater systems can contain contaminants that may interfere with certain laboratory analyses.  Effluent water monitoring must be fast and accurate.  This can be effectively and efficiently treated using our online water analysis solution.


    Biomass can be converted directly into liquid fuels – “biofuels,” to help meet the world’s transportation fuel needs.  Pyrolysis is the heating of an organic material, like biomass, in the absence of oxygen. Our VeraSpec MB system can be used to probe the in-situ chemical dynamics in hot supercritical and gas-phase hydrocarbons. The ability to identify, by direct observation rather than inference, the key species along the reaction coordinate can be used to generate a “roadmap” for thinking about how these chemical systems differ from those that are already widely understood.  



    • Dam Construction: A dam is built across a river or a reservoir is created by impounding water. The dam creates a significant difference in water levels, allowing for the potential energy of the water to be converted into mechanical energy.
    • Water Intake: Water is allowed to flow into the dammed or impounded area through intake structures, such as gates or tunnels. The water accumulates behind the dam, forming a reservoir or a large storage area.
    • Penstock and Turbines: The stored water is released from the reservoir through a penstock, which is a large pipe or a series of pipes. The water flows under the force of gravity, creating high-pressure and high-velocity water flow. This flowing water strikes the blades of turbines, causing them to rotate.
    • Mechanical Energy Conversion: As the turbines rotate, they transfer their mechanical energy to a generator. The generator is connected to the turbines through a shaft, and the rotating motion of the turbines induces the rotation of the generator’s rotor. This rotor is surrounded by a set of stationary coils called the stator.
    • Electrical Energy Generation: The rotation of the generator’s rotor within the stator induces an electromagnetic field, which produces an electric current in the coils of the stator. This current is an alternating current (AC), which can be converted to a more usable form of electricity through transformers.
    • Transmission and Distribution: The electricity generated by the hydropower plant is typically at a high voltage to minimize transmission losses. It is then transmitted through power lines over long distances to reach substations. At the substations, transformers reduce the voltage to levels suitable for distribution to homes, businesses, and industries.
    • Environmental Considerations: Hydropower is considered a renewable and clean source of energy as it does not produce greenhouse gas emissions during operation. However, the construction of dams and reservoirs can have environmental impacts, such as altering aquatic ecosystems, fish migration patterns, and displacing local communities. Therefore, proper planning and environmental assessments are necessary to minimize these impacts.
