  • Da Lin Power Station Taiwan-HydroPath provides a solution for Biofouling in Power Station

    The Site: Seawater is used as a coolant in the heat exchanger. Since the temperature inside the exchanger was below 50°C, scale was not a big problem. The problem was biofouling. lnvestigations have shown that a layer of 250 microns thick microfouling can reduce heat transfer efficiency by up to 25°c. Microfouling also reduces water flow and increases corrosion. At Da Lin Power Station, each ...

  • Ultrasonic algae control solutions to treat smaller water areas

    Algae has an import function in nature, it provides food and energy for animal life, and much of the earth’s oxygen. However, an excess of algae can be hazardous to both humans and animals.

  • Controlling Scale Deposition and Industrial Fouling

    It costs US industry billions of dollars a year to control and remove the limescale that builds up in industrial equipment such a heat exchangers, evaporative coolers, boilers, chillers and other water fed equipment. Oil wells, for example, face significant scaling problems from the highly mineralized water that are extracted with the oil. Limescale not only increases downtime, maintenance ...

  • Biofilm control strategies in industrial processing waters

    Bacterial biofilms cause a number of serious problems for industrial fluid processing operations. Mechanical blockages, impedance of heat transfer processes and microbially induced corrosion result in billions of dollars of losses each year. In engineered systems, such as cooling water systems, food processing, and other industrial applications possible risk to public health and product spoilage ...

  • Bio-fouling control on marine vessels with ozone

    A recent pilot study on how to control accumulation of marine organisms on heat exchangers of marine vessels show that applying ozone is both effective and sustainable. Large economic impact Marine bio-fouling, or accumulation of marine organisms on heat-exchangers for cooling systems, is a challenge in the maritime sector and has both an economic and environmental impact. Worldwide ...

  • Antifouling System Reduces Algal and Biological Growth on the In-Situ TROLL 9500 Water Quality Instrument

    Abstract New regulations regarding clean water have increased the need for long-term environmental monitoring. As water quality sensor technology improves and becomes more stable, the limiting factor in these projects becomes biological and non-biological fouling of instrumentation. Biofouling of environmental equipment increases site visits and maintenance, which elevate monitoring costs. ...

  • Map algal blooms with satellite remote sensing technology

    The quality of water bodies is a key determinant in the usability of the resource for the purpose required. It is therefore of great importance to managers of hydrologic resources to be able to confidently tell the status of their water resource. One of the major problems in the quality of surface water bodies is the blooming of algae and blue green algae. Algal blooms can result in ecological, ...

  • Reverse Osmosis and Nanofiltration Membrane Filtration Systems: Common Problems and How to Fix Them

    Reverse osmosis (RO) and nanofiltration (NF) are membrane filtration technologies that are designed to remove solute ions and molecules from a pretreated liquid stream. Well-designed RO/NF units are compact and demand relatively little maintenance, making them an attractive alternative to conventional treatment trains. Even despite the merits of today’s efficient RO/NF technologies, it pays ...
