English term or phrase: once-through sources
Buyer is responsible for the correct construction and operation of the hot carrier fluid and cold carrier fluid circuits, which must ensure optimal conditions and cleaning inside the heat exchangers (especially if water from cooling towers or once-through sources are being used for cooling)

źródła pojedyńczego przejścia

Aby zmniejszyć zużycie wody, zakłady są wyposażone systemy wież chłodniczych z obiegiem zamkniętym. Jednak niektóre zakłady znajdujące się na wybrzeżu lub w delcie rzeki, używają wody morskiej lub rzecznej w operacjach pojedynczego przejścia.

Cooling systems that use a water's cooling capacity a single time are called once-through cooling systems. These systems use large volumes of water and typically discharge the once-through water directly to waste. Large volumes of water are necessary for even the smallest once-through systems; therefore, a plentiful water supply at a suitably low temperature is needed.

Reference: Organic Rankine Cycle

Reference information:
The Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) is named for its use of an organic, high molecular mass fluid with a liquid-vapor phase change, or boiling point, occurring at a lower temperature than the water-steam phase change. The fluid allows Rankine cycle heat recovery from lower temperature sources such as biomass combustion, industrial waste heat, geothermal heat, solar ponds etc. The low-temperature heat is converted into useful work, that can itself be converted into electricity.

The technology was developed in the late 1950s by Lucien Bronicki and Harry Zvi Tabor.
