Power Plants

An optimal cooling system is mandatory to maximize the production of a power plant.

System stresses are significantly reduced through effective water treatment by controlling and limiting corrosion, scale, fouling and microbiological contamination. Ensuring that the cooling water system maintains the correct temperatures is also key.

Through such control, further advantages include:

  • Increased overall efficiencies
  • Limited loss of heat transfer
  • Reduced maintenance costs
  • Reduced power costs
  • Equipment repair or replacement cost savings, lending to a reduction in shutdowns

With cooling towers, slime grows rapidly in the system which can block free water flow and become a hazard for water quality. The slime, which often grows in condensers and on cooling surfaces of re-circulating systems, can significantly reduce efficiency. Undesirable slime and biofouling in spray ponds that supply such cooling systems and cool boilers may also cause severe problems for the site or facility, including cooling efficiencies that can be compromised due to flow and pressure restrictions.

We engineered solutions for the dosing of chemicals are also available to address specific needs.
