Influent Water Treatment

Pretreat influent water before it truly enters your plant’s system. Proper monitoring is the first defense to maintaining the health of your equipment. Proper treatment in this stage will ensure less treatment downstream within the power and steam generating process.

Parameters Relevant to Influent Water Treatment:

  • Chlorine
  • Dissolved Oxygen (DO)
  • TSS/Metals
  • pH

Steam/Power Generation and Cooling

It is important to ensure water quality to protoect plant equipment, including pipes, tubes. turbines, and boilers. Minimize silica levels to prevent turbine blade erosion or monitor DO to prevent corrosion in boilers and steam turbines.

Paramaters Relevant to Steam/Power Generation and Cooling:

  • Silica
  • Dissolved Oxygen (DO)
  • Conductivity
  • Sodium
  • pH

Industrial Wastewater

Minimize environmental impact and ensure permit compliance. Monitor and treat for the following parameters to comply with discharge requirements:

  • TSS/Metals
  • Nitrates
  • TOC
  • pH
