  • 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- ...

  • TOC analysis at airports

    As other industrial devices airports have to control their run-off weter for TOC and/or COD. The amount of waste water produced at airports is not negligible: The Frankfurt airport (one of the biggest airports in Europe) has produced 1.63 million cubic meters in 2006, the same amount as a medium-sized city. The sewer system of this airport consists of a 200km tubing system with a low quantity of ...

  • Application notes: The Sievers InnovOx TOC analyzer: boiler water monitoring

    Background A boiler system is a semi-closed loop system in which water is heated and converted into steam to power a generator. The steam is then allowed to form a condensate and the process is repeated. Boiler water chemistry directly impacts boiler efficiency and fuel use. Improper water treatment allows scale formation and corrosion. Boiler scale and deposits form when impurities ...

  • TOC Analysis: The Best Tool in a Drinking Water Facility`s Toolbox

    Total organic carbon (TOC) has become an important water quality analysis tool for drinking water plants in recent years due to its link to disinfection byproducts (DBPs). TOC alone is not harmful, but upon its reaction with a disinfectant can produce harmful byproducts. However, TOC’s relevance in drinking water ...

  • New TOC sensor wins Gold IBO award for portable instrument design

    In 2006, the USEPA singled out the distribution system as the most vulnerable component of a utility’s drinking water system. In response, many waterworks are taking a closer look at how they may protect the public’s drinking water. One option is to place online water quality panels throughout the distribution system to detect a change in the baseline water quality. The cost of implementing a ...
