Abstract: front page image
(EN)As geothermal steam containing contaminants such as boron, arsenic, and mercury is passed through a turbine-condenser system, the contaminants preferentially collect in the initial condensate produced from the steam. Collecting this initially-produced condensate and segregating it from the remainder of the steam being condensed ensures that condensate produced from the remainder of the steam is contaminants-lean, preferably containing the contaminants in concentrations allowing for discharge of the contaminants-lean condensate to the environment.
(FR)Selon l'invention, lorsque l'on passe une vapeur géothermique contenant des contaminants, tels que le bore, l'arsenic et le mercure, dans un système condenseur à turbine, lesdits contaminants sont recueillis préférentiellement dans le condensat initial produit à partir de la vapeur. La collecte dudit condensat et sa ségrégation du reste de la vapeur condensée, assure que le condensat produit à partir du restant de vapeur est pauvre en contaminants, contenant, de préférence, des contaminants ayant des teneurs qui permettent de l'évacuer dans l'environnement.
