    Monitoring of leaks in heat exchangers

    The Situation

    A California refinery produces xylene for use as commercial product and a precursor for petrochemical manufacturing. A primary component to the production of xylene is the isolation and purification of the chemical from a complex mixture of petroleum hydrocarbons. Steam based heat exchangers are used to process the xylene. Inherent to the design and rough duty heat exchangers face during their operation, leaks can and do develop. When a heat exchanger leaks, xylene contaminates the steam and produces a number of problems ranging from loss of final product, contamination and fouling of steam transfer piping, and ultimately bio-fouling of cooling towers. Consistent and reliable monitoring for xylene or other petroleum hydrocarbons in cooling water or steam condensate can alleviate product loss and process equipment down time.

    Monitoring of heat exchanger leaks in paper plant

    The Situation

    A paper plant in the Eastern United States uses 500 gallons per minute filtered pond water for cooling lubricating oil in its paper line. The resulting warmed water is diverted to an onsite pond. Because the water is used to cool lubricating oil, the plant could not reuse the water in its pulping process for fears of possible oil contamination of the paper pulp.

    Particles and alkaline compounds

    The malodorous gas given off, loaded with solid and particulate matter, requires a robust installation that guarantees a 24/7 operation. The contamination of the gas given off with alkaline metals was a challenge that led to the development of a special ceramic heat exchanger material.

    Boiler Water Testing / Cooling Tower Water Testing

    Boilers and cooling towers share two major water related problems: deposits and corrosion. As steam is generated by a boiler or water evaporating from a cooling tower, dissolved minerals are left behind, increasing the concentration of these minerals. Additional minerals are introduced via the water added to makeup the water lost to steam/evaporation. Eventually, the minerals reach a level (or cycle) of concentration that will cause either loss of efficiency due to scale or damage from corrosion. This level can be determined by the Ryznar or Langlier indices and correlated to a conductivity or TDS range. Most people recognize problems associated with corrosion. Effects from scale deposits, however, are equally important. For example, as little as 1/8` of scale can reduce the efficiency of a boiler by 18% or a cooling tower heat exchanger by 40%!

    Chemical Water Treatment for cleaning

    Deposits in water systems, especially in heat exchangers, result in a significant heat transfer reduction, in low efficiency and a loss of cooling capacity. Some systems, after long operational periods without any water conditioning or with inadequate treatment, need cleaning. Therefore Kurita Water Solutions proposes acidic, alkaline and neutral cleaners to remove deposits, scale, fouling, dirt, grime or impurities.

  • Tube bundle cleaning

    Problem: Heat exchanger systems lose efficiency when deposits build up in, and on, tube bundles. High-pressure water jetting cleans both I.D. and O.D. very effectively, but manual methods clean a limited area at a time and expose operators to strain and risk.

    Process water treatment

    Process water covers the wide range of boiler feed water, cooling water for heat exchangers or engine, chemicals dilution, etc. It should typically have a conductivity ranging from 0,1 to 50 uS/cm, with little to no hardness to avoid scaling in heating system. Oxygen and carbon dioxide should be removed to prevent corrosion. Depending on your application, the water quality requirements can vary: Boiler feed water characteristic. Cooling water quality. Tap water or fresh groundwater are the most widely used source of water to produce process water.

    Chlorine Dioxide Water Treatment for Power Plants

    Chlorine dioxide is a significant product in the control of algae, planktonic and sessile bacteria, bio-film and scale in power plants, cooling towers, loops and cooling systems. CleanOxide helps maintain the efficiency of heat exchanger surfaces, reservoir intakes and ancillary equipment. Traditional oxidising agents such as chlorine and bromine, on the other hand, are associated with pH constraints and corrosion problems.

  • HVAC and Cooling Filtration

    Water from cooling towers attracts and absorbs airborne contaminants on a continuous basis. Typically, 85% of suspended solids in cooling water and hot water loops are smaller than 5 microns. Scientific studies have shown that these small particles (5 microns and less) are the adherent contaminants fouling cooling tower water, chilled water and heat exchangers, thereby reducing your cooling system efficiency.

    Piping & ducting solutions for the HVAC industry

    The heating, ventilation, and air conditioning industry refers to the technology of indoor temperature control. A sub-discipline of mechanical engineering, HVAC systems are crucial in the design of residential as well as commercial structures. These systems control the temperature, and also the quality of the air that gets circulated, by replacing or exchanging the air in a particular space. Heating, cooling and ventilation systems require high-quality, precision-engineered parts, such as those manufactured by PROCO Products. PROCO operates worldwide, and maintains one of the largest product inventories in North America.

  • Air dedusting for clinker cooler

    e control of clinker fines emissions after the heat exchanger, placed downstream of the clinker cooler is usually a problem for plant managers. The process is characterized by high material abrasiveness, high loads and variable flow rate in normal and maximum conditions. The usual dedusting arrangement is achieved through a bag house which is typically associated with high maintenance costs and downtime in production due to frequent filter element replacements.

  • Distributed Temperature Sensing Technology for Stream Monitoring

    Temperature is an important factor in streams ecosystems. Heat tracers have been used to characterize contaminant transport, infiltration rates and energy exchange with groundwater, the atmosphere and radiation. The dynamics of these complicated water bodies is also affected by seasonal and diurnal patterns making characterization particularly challenging. Utilizing temperature measurements that capture spatial and temporal variations at stream ecosystem interfaces provides a mechanism for detailed characterization.

  • Industrial water softening

    The presence of certain metal ions in water causes a variety of problems. These ions interfere with the action of soaps, lead to build up of limescale, which can foul plumbing, boilers, heating equipment. Water softening is the removal of calcium, magnesium, and certain other metal cations in hard water. The resulting soft water extends the lifetime of plumbing and heating equipment. Softening of low TDS ( Total Dissolved Solids ) water is done commonly with a Strong Acid Cation ( SAC ) exchange resin operating in the sodium form and regenerated with brine. PuriTech`s latest development is a very performant continuous ion exchanger, based on PuriTech`s innovative ION-IX technology which is based on true counter-current ion exchange.

  • High performance filtration & separation system for amine

    There are a number of factors that affect the capacity and operation of a typical amine system. Solid or liquid contaminants in the system may cause foaming. The presence of foaming is typically addressed by the addition of expensive antifoam chemicals and/or by reducing the operating capacity of the amine system. In addition to this, the presence of contaminants in the system can foul heat exchangers and column packing or trays. These solid and liquid contaminants are either ingressed into the system with the feed stream, or generated within it as a result of the chemistry of the system. These contaminants are typically addressed by means of particle filters and carbon adsorption.
