Top 5 Plant Engineering articles, August 21-27Plant Engineering’s top 5 most read articles from August 21-27, covered  bearing maintenance, fuel cells, boiler replacement, reducing energy waste, and condensing boilers. Link to each article below.

1. Seven tips for proper bearing maintenance

Bearings are important mechanical components that help in maintaining the liner and rotational movements of a machine and it is important they are maintained properly to ensure long operational life.

2. Fuel cells find new applications

A fuel cell creates electricity from hydrogen, or hydrogen-rich fuel, and oxygen, and can be used in a wide range of applications including transportation, stationary, portable, and backup power applications.

3. New boiler life with a new burner

Is it time for a boiler replacement? Maybe a controls and burner replacement will solve the problem.

4. Five ways to reduce energy waste in manufacturing processes

Companies can reduce their electric bill by avoiding energy expenditure spikes, monitoring their energy during downtimes, and investing in compressed air technology.

5. Condensing boilers: the final step in boiler savings

Using a counterflow heat exchanger arrangement to take the exhaust below the point of condensation results in improvements in efficiency in the magnitude of 10% to 15% over an annual heating cycle.

This list was developed using CFE Media’s web analytics for stories viewed on www.plantengineering.com, August 21-27, for articles published within the last two months.
