  • Reverse osmosis water chemistry

    Alkalinity: Alkalinity is comprised primarily of carbon dioxide, bicarbonate, carbonate and hydroxides. Naturally occurring alkalinity is the earth’s natural buffering system in that small doses of strong acids (e.g. acid rain) react with alkalinity and result in relatively small changes in pH. Carbon dioxide and bicarbonate are in a balance between the pH range of 4.4 and 8.2. At a pH of 4.4 or ...

  • Seniors can save money on energy bills with Scalewatcher

    Since 2001 energy rates for consumers across America have doubled.  These increases are impacting everyone’s wallet, with those on fixed income, such as seniors, suffering the most.  Everyone is looking for ways to save money on their energy bills but for seniors it is even more essential.  One way for seniors to achieve energy savings is to reduce limescale in a hot water ...

  • Combined ultrafiltration-electrodeionization technique for production of high purity water

    Electrodeionization (EDI) is the most common method to produce high purity water used for boiler feed water, microelectronic, and pharmaceutical industries. Commonly, EDI is combined with reverse osmosis (RO) to meet the requirement of EDI feed water, with hardness less than 1 ppm. However, RO requires a relatively high operating pressure and ultrafiltration (UF) as pretreatment which results ...

  • Real Time TOC Analysis in Steam and Condensate

    Executive Summary Steam in petro/chemical plants could be contaminated with hydrocarbons (TOC = Total Organic Carbons) from various sources. In any case this is a sign for defects in the process, whether it they occur in the heat exchanger, the blow down vessel, the condensate recovery or other parts of the system. Conventional solutions to monitor such contaminations use TOC- ...

  • VSEP improves industrial boiler performance and reduces blowdown frequency by a factor of ten

    In the steam boiler industry, high purity feed water is required to ensure proper operation of steam generation systems. High purity feed water reduces the use of boiler chemicals due to less frequent blowdown requirements (reducing blowdown frequency by as much as a factor of 10). Lower blowdown frequency also results in lower fuel costs. Scale buildup is reduced due to a smaller concentration ...
