Global Naphtha Market 2016-2020

Naphtha is a hydrocarbon intermediate that is generally produced during the refining of crude oil in the atmospheric distillation unit (ADU/CDU) of a refinery, which is also the primary source. Additionally, naphtha is also produced from the distillation of coal tar, bitumen, and oil sands. However, the quantities produced through these processes can be considered minuscule compared to the previous process. The most common names are derived from the source from which it is produced, composition, end use, and also manufacturing companies' terminology. Some of the common names include ligroin, VM&P naphtha (Varnish Makers and Painter's naphtha), petroleum naphtha, petroleum spirits, as well as naphtha ASTM. In Australia, it is recognized as Shellite, and as white gas or white spirit i......

Global Cogeneration Equipment Market 2016-2020

The cogeneration process involves simultaneous production of heat and electricity from a single source. This technology evolved a century ago along with steam turbine power plants. The world's first central power station was also the first cogeneration plant that was commissioned in Manhattan in 1884. Though the technology is century old, it garnered attention from the 1980s as technological advances led to improved cogeneration cycle efficiency. Over the years, emergence of new technologies for power generation coupled with enhanced cycle efficiency fueled the sales of cogeneration equipment. The analysts forecast global cogeneration equipment market to grow at a CAGR of 4.57% during the period 2016-2020. Covered in this report The report covers the present scenario and the growt......

Global Solar Microinverter Market 2016-2020

Solar microinverters are small devices installed on solar panels that convert the DC output of a photovoltaic (PV) panel into AC. These inverters use maximum power point tracking (MPPT) to get maximum power from the PV array. The function of a microinverter is similar to a central or string inverter. In a string inverter, the PV modules are connected in strings and then wired to a central inverter. A microinverter, however, does not generate power unless connected to the grid. It converts AC to DC at each PV module, allowing the output of PV module to be unaffected by other modules. Therefore, partial shading, debris, and snow lines on any one module do not disproportionately affect the output. Solar microinverters enable maximum power, design flexibility, and enhanced safety, addres......

Global Generator Market in Datacentre 2016-2020

Generators convert mechanical energy into electric energy. The source of mechanical energy can vary from internal combustion engine, hand crank, and compressed air, to reciprocating steam engine. Internal combustion engines use diesel, gasoline, propane gas, and natural gas to produce mechanical energy; this energy is converted into electric energy with the help of gensets. Generators are backup devices designed to provide temporary AC or DC power. They can be used as a source of backup or emergency power for residential, commercial, and industrial applications. A typical generator is powered via a fuel engine. The analysts forecast global generator market in data centers to grow at a CAGR of 10.8% during the period 2016-2020. Covered in this report This report covers the prese......

Global Generator Market in Railways 2016-2020

Generators are devices that convert mechanical energy into electrical energy. The source of mechanical energy can be varied, ranging from an internal combustion engine or a hand crank compressed engine to a reciprocating steam engine. An internal combustion engine uses diesel, propane, gasoline, gas, and natural gas to generate mechanical energy, which is converted into electric energy by using a generator assembly. Generators in railway locomotives are used both as a source of electric power for the traction motors as well as a backup source of electric power required to operate air conditioners, lights, and fans inside a coach; they also provide the power required by the electronic and communication equipment installed on the locomotives. A typical generator is powered via a fuel engi......

Global Three-Phase Separator Market in Oil and Gas Industry 2016-2020

Crude oil is of two types: sweet crude oil and sour crude oil. Sweet crude is also referred to as light crude while sour crude is referred to as heavy crude. Based on composition, sweet or sour crude oil needs to be refined using different methods and technologies. At the time of production, crude oil stream consists of three-phase s, solid, liquid, and gas. For transportation of crude oil, it is necessary to separate these phases. One technology that provides early stage separation is a three-phase separator. This separator enables refiners to go directly for refining as it provides early stage separation of the crude oil. A three-phase separator consists of a safety valve, weir, level controller, and a heat exchanger. A safety valve provides protection against undesirable pressure ......
