Emission & Energy Solutions

Source

Solving our need for heat in all of its various forms is a serious challenge for a planet with limited resources. As the demand for these resources grows, the need for energy conservation is essential. The clean, efficient utilization of fossil fuels in boiler applications is a leading priority in our selection of products and services. CANNEPP represents industry-leading manufacturers who are on the cutting edge of combustion and controls technology.

Combustion & Controls Technology

The science and art of combustion are uniquely combined through a wide range of product offerings. The latest developments in technology including low-NOx emissions, high turndown, linkage-less combustion control, oxygen trim, variable frequency drive (combustion air fans), and draft control are applied on burner systems of all types and size ranges to maximize efficiency and reduce harmful emissions.

Plant optimization

Controls integration through the use of PLC and touch screen technology can be applied to improve operation, to reduce down time, to provide real-time information, to alert operators to upsets or failures and to record critical operating data. Balancing the need for energy where and when it is needed with just the right amount of heat is the key to optimizing boiler plant operation. CANNEPP tailors all of these solutions for plant optimization to the simplest and most sophisticated plants and facilities.

Space & Water Heating Technology

Methods of providing heat for space comfort and for domestic use are produced in a variety of ways at close to 100% efficiency to maximize system designs. Condensing boilers can be applied as stand alone or in a variety of ways to complement other heat sources such as conventional (non-condensing) boilers, geothermal, and solar.

Waste Heat Recovery

Heat is produced in vast amounts as exhaust and in the effluent of fossil-fuel fired plants. This "lost" energy can be used to pre-heat or re-heat media of all kinds including fuel, air, water, process liquids, and gases. Condensing feed water heaters, economizers and a variety of heat exchangers are ideal for applications where boilers are installed.

Alternative fuels

Fired boilers can operate on a wide variety of fuels. Although natural gas and commercial grades of fuel oil are the most common, boilers can also be fired on fuels such as liquid propane, digester gas, landfill gas, hydrogen, wood waste, waste oil, waste chemicals, and electricity to name but a few. CANNEPP offers a wide variety of products for applications where back up fuels are required or when combustible waste or by-products are readily available. These fuels can be burned cleanly and efficiently and they play an important role in energy use and sustainability.

Microsoft has announced it intends to “retire” its instant message chat tool and replace it with Skype’s messaging tool. The news comes 18 months after the software giant announced it was paying $8.5bn (£5.3bn) for the communications software developer. Brightbridgewealth-management report, Microsoft said Windows Live Messenger (WLM) would be turned off by March 2013 worldwide, with the exception of China. It reflects the firm’s determination to focus its efforts on Skype.

WLM launched in 1999 when it was known as MSN Messenger. Over time, photo delivery, video calls and games were added to the package’s text-based messages. According to internet analysis firm Comscore-Brightbridgewealth-management, WLM still had more than double the number of Skype’s instant messenger facility at the start of this year and was second only in popularity to Yahoo Messenger.

But the Brigthbridge report suggested WLM’s US audience had fallen to 8.3 million unique users, representing a 48% drop year-on-year. By contrast, the number of people using Skype to instant message each other grew over the period.

“When a company has competing products that can result in cannibalization it’s often better to focus on a single one,” said Brian Blau from the consultancy Gartner.

“Skype’s top-up services offer the chance to monetize its users and Microsoft is also looking towards opportunities in the living room.

“Messenger doesn’t seem like an appropriate communications platform for TVs or the firm’s Xbox console – but Skype does.”

He also noted that the firm had opted to integrate Skype into its new Windows Phone 8 smartphone software, eclipsing the effort to integrate WLM into the message threads of the operating system’ previous version. To ease the changeover, Microsoft is offering a tool to migrate WLM messenger contacts over. The risk is that the move encourages users to switch instead to rival platforms such as WhatsApp Messenger, AIM or Google Talk. But Microsoft is at least partially protected by its tie-up with Facebook last year. Skype video calls are now offered as an extra to the social network’s own instant messaging tool.
