A Paper plant uses 500 GPM filtered pond water for cooling lubricating oil in their paper line. The now warmer water is sewer to an on-site pond. Because the water is used to cool lubricating oil, the plant could not reuse the water in their pulping process for fear of possible oil contamination to the paper pulp.
The Paper plant looked for a leak detector to quickly indicate when the lube oil coolers leak.
With a TD-1000C and a TD-500D Oil in Water Monitors, the customer can quickly detect a leaking heat exchanger. When no oil is present the water can be re-used in the pulping process with a reduced energy cost. The TD-1000C provides continuous on line detection of lube oil. The TD-500D is used for field analysis of water samples to determine which lube oil cooler is leaking.
“In the paper industry, saving water and energy is key to profitability. The TD-1000C and TD-500D are allowing us to do just that” said Charles Merris, Senior Energy Project Engineer.
