In hot water: The "other" global warming - Bulletin o

2012-2-15 · On January 20, a state engineer with the Utah Division of Water Rights approved two applications that would allow Blue Castle Holdings to take a total of 53,600 acre-feet of water from the Green River annually for a proposed nuclear power plant. That's more than 17 billion gallons a year, enough for a city of 100,000 households. > Get A Quote >

Power-generating plants use evaporation to cool thei

2019-10-18 · Power-generation plants, including Plant Bowen in Georgia, produce power by using heat (in this case, from burning coal) to convert water into steam. The steam, very hot and under a great deal of pressure, is pumped through pipes to turn the blades of a turbine, which is connected by a > Get A Quote >


2019-2-7 · A typical temperature rise in a hot water generator is 40 to 140 o but this can vary according to local conditions and requirements. The most common heating media in the bundle tubes are 180 o pumped boiler water or 15 psi steam. Once again, these are different in many cases and are dictated by the original system design. > Get A Quote >

How Gas Turbine Power Plants Work | Department o

Higher temperatures generally mean higher efficiencies, which in turn, can lead to more economical operation. Gas flowing through a typical power plant turbine can be as hot as 2300 degrees F, but some of the critical metals in the turbine can withstand temperatures only as hot as 1500 to 1700 degrees F. > Get A Quote >

Riverside Generating Station | Xcel Ener

The coal-fired plant was retired as the new combined cycle facility came on line in April 2009. A combined cycle plant generates electricity from two sources of energy: 1) Natural gas is used as fuel in a combustion turbine, similar to a jet engine; 2) Exhaust from the combustion turbine is used to make steam in a heat recovery steam generator. > Get A Quote >
