Fitness for Service – Alternatives for equipment validation

Boiler and pressure equipment manufacturers face everyday strict design and manufacturing requirements to supply heat exchangers, pressure vessels or process equipment. The recognized international design and manufacturing codes that are prescribed for this type of equipment (ASME VIII Div. 1 & 2, EN13445, AD2000, etc.) specify those tests, trials, inspections and quality controls to be […]

Brief introduction to TEMA HEAT EXCHANGERS design and selection

TEMA Standards are worldwide accepted as the authority on shell and tube heat exchangers design and manufacturing. These standards are the most commonly used in a wide range of industries throughout the world: refineries, oil and gas, power generation, etc.

PV Structures: beyond structural design

The relevance of solar structures is growing in the investment of PV solar plants due to many factors related to the PV market evolution: tendency towards multi-Megawatt plants, global increased of the competition and new emerging markets, and overall drastic drop of prices on solar panels.
