  • Case study - Preventing scaling saves expensive pigging operations and production shut downs

    UK Based Fluid Dynamics has won a contract to supply its non chemical environment friendly hard water scale prevention products to prevent scaling in an effluent stream. The problem:  backwash from iron filters, softeners and RO units combined to block drain lines and cause pumps to seize at a major UK government establishment in Oxfordshire England.  The only way to clear these ...

  • A comprehensive factorial design study of variables affecting CaCO3 scaling under magnetic water treatment

    Magnetic water treatment (MWT) could be an interesting alternative to chemical treatment to prevent scaling and has been used as an antiscaling treatment for domestic and industrial equipment. A two level-three factor (23) full factorial design was used to evaluate the effects of pH (6–7.5), flow rate (0.54–0.94) and application of a magnetic field on the induction time (IT), total ...

  • Preventing Rust Formation with Electronic Water Treatment

    The growing demand for water for industrial applications, power production and water supply has resulted in an increasing need for water treatment. The water used in industry comes from a range of sources such as rivers, lakes, wells and oceans and contains dissolved and suspended solids.  In addition the industrial world has to reuse water which in turn causes it to be highly concentrated ...

  • 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 ...

  • Hyundai Heavy Industries South Korea - case study

    OVERVIEW, WATER SYSTEM CHALLENGES The furnace rolls water coil cooling system has been clogged with scale causing downtime and maintenance work. In the past, the company had used chemicals (to prevent as well as remove existing scale). In past years magnetic water treatment solution has been introduced for a test but was not successful in preventing scale buildup. ...

  • The mystery of electronic water treatment unveiled

    The problems of scale are well known to those living and working in "hard" water areas. Scale is the undesirable consequence of water supplies becoming super-saturated with dissolved minerals.  These problems are of greater significance if found in industrial water systems and commercial buildings. Scaling problems commonly occur, even in "soft" water areas, when a fluid stream is ...

  • Looking Beyond Chemical Water Treatment Case Study

    When you think of an environmentally friendly company, a steel processing plant does not typically come to mind. However, Stripco Inc. of Mishawaka, IN, a manufacturer of production-ready, cold-rolled steel coils, is the exception. In August of 1995, Stripco made a wise decision that also proved to be cost-effective and environmentally- friendly when they installed a Superior Environmentalist ...

  • Removing Struvite from wastewater systems

    Named after Henrich Christian Gottfried Von Struve, who discovered the magnesium ammonium phosphate crystals in medieval sewer systems in Hamburg in 1845, struvite is a major problem for waste water treatment plants. The hard, crystalline deposit forms scale on lines and belts, in centrifuges and pumps.  It also clogs system pipes and other equipment including anaerobic ...

  • Electronic Water Treatment Reduces Fouling In Reverse Osmosis

    Reverse Osmosis (RO) is used in processes requiring high-quality, purified water, such in semi-conductor processing or biochemical applications and can be used to treat boiler feed water, industrial wastewater or process water. A water purification technique, it reduces the quantity of dissolved solids in solution. RO uses waterline pressure together with energy consuming pressurizing pumps that ...

  • Electronic Water Treatment - An alternative solution to removing beerstone and limescale

    Beer contains 90% water and is the most important ingredient in determining its flavor.  Water contains calcium and is the most important mineral to the brewing process.  The levels of calcium in local water have determined the type of beer produced.  The different types of beer whether a light lager or a porter are for the most part due to the water profiles of the areas that made ...

  • Rotary batch blenders help DIP get pre-mixes to market fast

    Mixers are more efficient than double-cone units Ductil Iron Powder (DIP), Buzau, Romania, was established in 2000 as a spin-off of Ductil Steel. Its products are iron and alloyed powders for use in powder metallurgy and welding applications. The plant for making the iron powders began operation in 1995, and by 2000 it reached its current capacity ...

  • REMOVING LIMESCALE IMPROVES WATER QUALITY IN POULTRY FARMS

    Water is one of the most important nutrients in poultry production.  About 70 per cent of a bird’s body is made up of water - eggs contain around 65% water. Birds are constantly losing water in egg production, so there is an obvious need for constant replenishment.  Water intake is almost twice the weight of ...

  • Moving difficult-to-handle bulk materials with flexible screw conveyors

    Flexible screw conveyor systems can be engineered to transport bulk materials that tend to pack, cake, smear, break apart or fluidize, and can prevent the separation of blended products. Flexible screw conveyors (Fig. 1) are suitable for most bulk materials, from sub-micron powders to large pellets, both free-flowing and non-free flowing. They are capable of conveying bulk materials at any angle ...

  • No Place Is Too Far

    The remote location of hydropower stations is often a great challenge when major repair work is necessary. The refurbishment of a large generator in the Scottish Highlands shows how Sulzer finds cost-effective service solutions even in places miles from nowhere. Much of the UK hydroelectric capacity was built during the 1950s. These installations have performed extremely well, especially ...

  • In-Vessel Composting of Residential Organics

    In 1994, the Regional Municipality of Peel began work on a system for residential organic residuals collection and composting. Although Peel had been promoting backyard composting, greater diversion rates were sought. The public was surveyed to determine what level of cooperation could be expected for source separation and setting out of food, soiled paper products, yard trimmings, etc. “We knew ...
