Legionnaires’ Disease Strikes Again

Legionnaires’ disease is in the news again. Late last week, there were reports that 11 people in Manhattan were sickened. Then, over the weekend, more people were reported to have fallen ill. Many remain in the hospital. As the later report notes, “Health officials believe vapor from water cooling towers is spreading bacteria that causes the disease.” Although treatable with antibiotics, Legionnaires’ can also be fatal. In fact, 12 people died in the Bronx in 2015 as a result of an outbreak.

How Artificially Intelligent Boiler Combustion Tuning Systems Save Power Plants Millions

Recent testing and verification of an upgraded boiler combustion tuning system revealed the potential to save millions of dollars per year in fuel costs. Taiwan-based Linkou Thermal Power Plant’s Duel 800MW rated combustion units were both fitted with an AI combustion tuning system to improve fuel economy.

Power plants can save on costs to the tune of millions over the operational lifetime of a boiler by implementing a self-learning boiler burner management system. This article discusses how artificial intelligence based systems reduce fuel consumption and cost while driving combustion efficiency upwards.

Top HEPA Vacuum Product Features and Differences for Radioactive Waste Cleanup

There are some cleanup jobs at power plants that require more than a wet vacuum. Plant operators are well aware that radioactive and other types of hazardous waste require a certified industrial vacuum cleaner. For five years, that has been the modus operandi for radioactive waste management teams at the ill-fated Fukushima Power Plant. Recently, Japan announced the completion of radioactive waste cleanup at the plant. Whether it’s a huge catastrophe or a relatively smaller incident like the recent scare at a Idaho Falls Radioactive Waste Management Plant, your fleet of HEPA vacuums needs to be primed and ready.
