The polishers will be used at the 1,370-megawatt Raipur Super Thermal Power Plant in the state of Chhattisgarh, India, which is being built to increase power generation capacity in the district. Siemens will design, engineer and fabricate the condensate polisher system, which is currently scheduled for start-up in June 2014.
For the Raipur power plant, Siemens Water Technologies will provide six condensate polishers that will treat over 3,100 m3/hr of return condensate. Condensate is formed when the steam from the boiler cools.
To reuse it, impurities such as metal oxides, trace ionic impurities and silica have to be removed by condensate polishers. They help to improve and maintain the boiler feed water chemistry.
The system will increase the likelihood that the power plant will stay online during small to moderate condenser leaks. The exhausted resins will be transferred and regenerated in a Fullsep external regeneration system that allows separation of the resins with minimum crosscontamination, thus assisting the customer in maintaining consistent high-quality water.
Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction is a multi-billion-dollar Engineering Procurement and Construction (EPC) company and a global leader in the power and water business. GMR Chhattisgarh Energy Private Limited is a subsidiary of the GMR Group, and has been developing power plants of over 8,000 megawatt capacity.
Fullsep is a trademark of Siemens and/or its affiliates in some countries.

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.
This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.
"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...
In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.
"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
