Cooling Tower Refurbishment Increases Power Generation and Lifespan
NOVEMBER 2015 - EnergyAustralia's Yallourn Power Station in Victoria, Australia, is a text book example of how cooling tower refurbishment significantly improves power generation efficiency and reduces the plant’s environmental footprint.
Upgrade Fill Media to Improve Cooling Tower Efficiency
OCTOBER 2015 - One of the simplest and most cost-effective ways in which to extend the life of a cooling tower, improve heat transfer efficiency and reduce maintenance downtime, is to upgrade the cooling tower’s fill media to components constructed out of robust and non-clogging materials such as Polypropylene (PP), PVC or stainless steel.
IWC Builds Massive GRP Fan Stacks for Kusile Power Station
ISANDO, 23 SEPTEMBER 2015Eskom’s new Kusile Power Station in Witbank, Mpumalanga, is set to benefit from the energy-efficiency of IWC’s patented glass fibre reinforced plastic (GRP) fan stacks, four of which have been manufactured for one of the station’s mechanical induced-draft cooling towers.
IWC Builds Largest GRP Tank for Uranium Mine
ISANDO, 18 AUGUST 2015IWC recently completed the construction of one of its largest ever glass-fibre reinforced plastics (GRP) tanks measuring 6 metres in diameter and 11 metres in height, capable of holding up to 254 000 litres.The length of the cylinder of this tank was set at 9 meters.IWC’s GRP manufacturing facility in Isando, Gauteng, can manufacture up to14 meters in a single filament wound process.
GRP Cooling Towers Crucial In Aggressive Chemical Processing
July 2015 - Glass-reinforced plastic (GRP) is prevailing over traditional concrete, steel and wood as the most suitable primary cooling tower material in mining processes involving aggressive chemical solutions.
GRP Pipes Reign Supreme in Mine Dewatering Applications
June 2015 - Glass-reinforced plastic (GRP) pipes’ proven resilience in harsh terrains, extreme climates and unpredictable site environments make them the superior choice over HDPE, steel and DICL (ductile iron concrete lined) pipes in the demanding environment of a mine dewatering system.
Stop Massive Municipal Water Loss with GRP Pipes
May 2015 - Nearly 40% of South Africa’s municipal water is lost before ever reaching customers, according to the Water Research Commission (WRC). This equates to approximately 1,580-million cubic metres of lost water per annum in a country considered “water-scarce”, or an estimated R7 billion in lost revenue.
