make-up water Applications

  • Solutions for the emergency spill clean-up

    BioSolve Pinkwater eliminates fire and explosion hazard when sprayed directly onto a fuel/oil spill. Aggressive agitation with a course stream reduces volatilization and causes LEL readings to immediately decline, possibly registering “0.” Application of Pinkwater also facilitates roadway cleanup and elimination of hazardous oil sheen.

    Industrial solutions for cooling water contamination

    Problem: Large quantities of water are used for cooling in industrial manufacturing. To prevent scaling, corrosion and biofilm in the cooling system, inhibitors and biocides are regularity dosed. Make-up water is continuously added to the system to balance the loss of water from evaporation. As water is added, the concentration of chemicals is diluted and the quality of water changes.

  • Vacuum excavation solutions for animal waste / bedding clean-up / dairy farm / zoo / horse stall clean-up and maintenance

    Vac‐Tron Equipment can be used for various clean‐ups involving animal waste and bedding. Large animal environments are cleaned‐up in zoos; animal waste drainage pits, pumping contaminated water out of holding tanks and transferring into disposal tanks, draining and cleaning animal housing ponds, horse stalls for daily maintenance to suck-up urine and solid waste; complete cleaning of bedding area of straw or wood shavings; removes urine that is not good for the horses to smell (like acid or methane gas). Dairy farms implement the same process thereby yielding a cleaner more sanitized living condition for their cows. By utilizing the high pressure water wand to clean ponds, stalls, cages, concrete, landscaping, etc., and removing all animal waste to ensure the health of all animals.

    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%!

    Water treatment for power plants

    The process of electricity generation from fossil fuels such as coal, oil and natural gas is water-intensive. Between 40-50% of all water abstracted and used in developed countries is used in the generation of electricity. Thus, a reliable, abundant and predictable source of raw water supply to a power plant is a critical factor in site selection. Water supplies are required to provide various process waters for the following essential main purposes such as make-up water, cooling water for steam turbine condensers, and auxiliary plant cooling water.

    The primary application of modern water treatment technology is to maintain the integrity and performance of the power plant. Critical plant applications have water purity or conditioning requirements that must be adhered to for safe, reliable and efficient power generation.

    Experience has shown that integration of water technology treatments with power plant design can be very important in reducing operational problems and component failures 

    At power plant worldwide there are increasing limitations on water availability and environmental restrictions on discharges. This is expected to promote measures for water conservation and to have an increasing influence on water treatment decisions. At power plant, the recycling of internal wastewater streams can extend from the recovery of individual high-quality waste streams, which can be reused either directly or after only limited treatment, through to the development of fully integrated water/wastewater treatment systems for zero liquid discharge. However, the application of reuse schemes requires site-specific assessment, as not all waters may be viable options for recovery.

    pH value and conductivity measurement for power plants

    The pH value and the conductivity have to be determined quasi-continuously at numerous locations in a power plant. The pH value is a key parameter to control the amount of lithium hydroxide that has to be added to the primary circuit of a pressurized water reactor; in water steam circuits, the pH value controls the amount of added amines. The conductivity indicates the amount of dissolved minerals. It is a measure of the water purity and is one of the most important parameters for any chemical control program in a power plant. It is determined at numerous sampling points in the power plant, for example, in the cooling water circuit, in feed and makeup water, at the outlet of the condensate pump, and in the primary circuit of a pressurized water reactor.

  • Membrane filtration systems for reduction of BOD/COD

    Reverse Osmosis Polishers can concentrate BOD/COD from evaporator condensate and RO permeate streams to reduce waste water. Polished water can also be re-used in plant for boiler water make-up and CIP systems. In Dairy Industry applications, `polishing` of these process water streams aids in the production of Class I water for re-use from dairy products as defined and regulated under Food & Drug Administration rules. Water produced with this technique is also very soft, generally resulting in lower cleaning chemical consumption.
