Overcoming water treatment challenges in the power generation industry - Energy - Power Distribution
Those in the power generation industry know how critical a reliable, steady stream of high purity water is. For power generation, water is used in high pressure boilers, turbines and cooling towers. Water treatment for power generation is a vital process that requires a dependable technology. High purity water ensures proper operation of steam generation system and reduces blowdown frequency and use of boiler chemicals. High purity water is also able to better protect against erosion and damage to equipment.
Desalitech’s Closed Circuit Reverse Osmosis systems excel where other RO systems fail and can provide maximum water recovery of up to 98% plus a resistance to fouling, scaling that drives your organization towards exceeding operational and sustainability goals.
CCRO allows plant operations to focus their on attention on more critical matters as the systems automatically adapt to varying feed water and allow for remote control of the system if there are changes that do need to be made.
When addressing water treatment for power generation, boilers require the highest quality water in the power plant. Allowing impurities to enter the boiler system can result in loss of heat efficiency, increased fuel consumption, condensate corrosion and reduced productivity. Desalitech’s Closed Circuit Reverse Osmosis systems reliably remove water impurities, guaranteeing consistent and highly efficient operation.
Cooling Water Blow Down
The cooling cycle is the largest consumer of water in the power plant. Efficient cooling water treatment is critical for ensuring maximum productivity and continuous operation. With greater scaling resistance and adaptability to varying feed water, Desalitech’s Closed Circuit Reverse Osmosis systems purify water at unparalleled levels of efficiency and reliability.
Zero Liquid Discharge (ZLD)
In regions where regulations limit the discharge of wastewater, reverse osmosis based ZLD solutions are becoming a cost effective option. Desalitech products are ideal for ZLD applications, achieving up to 98% water recovery, and by doing so, significantly reducing the high capital and operating costs of downstream evaporation, centrifuge, crystallizer processes.
