power plant cooling water Applications

    Monitoring oil in power plant cooling water

    The TD-4100 utilizes a non-fouling, non-contact flow cell which requires little to no maintenance, and uses fluorescence technology to accurately detect oil in water from low ppb to high ppm. For this application, the TD-4100 monitors oil in water at 1 to 5 ppm and signals an operator with an alarm when the concentration exceeds the high alarm relay set-point.

    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.

  • 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.

  • Automated solutions for the power plant inlet water dredging

    Liquid Waste Technology’s dredging systems are used for power plant cooling water dredge applications. LWT’s dredges are designed to remove the sand, silt and sediment that build up in reception ponds and inlet channels to power plants. Each dredging system is custom built for the inlet water application, including the level of automation, removal rate and dredging depth required for each job.

  • Cooling tower water treatment

    The fresh water requirement for a cooling tower in a typical coal-based power plant is approximately 80% of the total consumption of water. These concentrated cooling water blowdown streams are extremely rich in silica, are characterized by higher hardness levels and include other organic loads. Aquatech has vast experience in recycle/reuse solutions for cooling tower blowdown and cooling tower water treatment.

  • Water Monitoring and Flow Measurement Systems for Hydrology

    In recent years acoustic flow measurement and flow metering has established itself as the standard method for measurement in many hydrological stations but is also used as the basis for various applications, for example for flood protection and flood forecasting. Ultrasonic flow meters are also used in hydro-engineering constructions. With this almost contact free technology data can be recorded continuously and it provides 24/7 monitoring. Such flow monitoring is particularly important in waterways used for shipping, transportation, irrigation, drainage and for cooling water extraction of power plants. A further important use of transit-time open channel flow meters is the transportation of water used for the supply of drinking water. Here the focus lies on detecting the flow rate of water loss at an early stage as it is sometimes difficult to detect small leakages.

    Industrial valves solutions for the energy industry

    Quality and reliability are the most important facts when plant engineers have to choose the components for power stations. Not matter if nuclear or fossil-fuelled, or when used in plants for renewable energy – shut-off and control valves by EBRO are first choice when quality and life cycle costing are the selection criteria. Different type series ensure that there is always a fitting solution for every application. If it is boiler feed water, condensate, cooling water or coolants – EBRO offers a reliable valve to fully meet the demands.
