Significantly Increases Performance of Power Plants
TEHRAN (INIC)- Power
plant filters modified by nanofibre technology were among the
achievements presented in Equipment Zone of Iran Nano 2012 by Fanavaran
The production line of
the product has already been inaugurated.
"Filters are one of the
simplest nanofibres that have been commercialized in the world. The
filters are produced by coating an ordinary filter with nanofibres, and
they have much higher performance in comparison with the ordinary
filters," Dr. Reza Faridi Majidi, the CEO of Fanavaran Nano-Meghyas
Company, told the INIC's reporter about the operation of these filters.
"We've been in contact
with various industries such as filter fabrication industry. We observed
some disadvantages in F9 filters. Therefore, we tried to optimize those
filters by using deposition method in some parts of them. The process
took about three years," he added.
Increasing the rest time
of power plants during the maintenance of turbines is one of the
characteristics of the filters.
Some of economical
advantages of this product have been listed hereafter:
electricity production; by using nanofilters, the sum total
production of electricity in all power plants in the country will
increase about 1,400,000 MW in a work period of the filters (one
Value of the
produced electricity; if this technology is used, the value of the
electricity produced in a year will increase up to about $1 billion.
Reduction in the
depreciation of power plants' turbines; by using nanofilters, the
depreciation in turbine blades reduces to the extent that about
1,000,000,000 rials will be saved in annual maintenance of any of
the power plants.
The CEO of Fanavaran
Nano-Meghyas Company elaborated on the new activities of the company,
and said, "Nanofibres are able to perfectly filter small particles
suspended in air. Taking into consideration the problems caused by the
dust recently, we try to use nanofibres in increasing the performance of
medical masks. The project is currently at the stage of development and
