3 Steps to Infrastructure Security and Resiliency

November is Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience Month. In this blog post, we’ll look into what security and resiliency really mean for critical infrastructures such as the energy sector, water monitoring systems, and emergency services. ...


Reliable Water Quality Monitoring with Integrated Conductivity Sensors in Water Treatment Systems

On-line conductivity measurement of mineral contamination in water allows reliable and inexpensive monitoring of water quality through the various stages of treatment. In comparison to having to install different analog sensors to cover the total measuring range, a single digital conductivity sensor with integrated measuring circuit can measure from ultrapure to brackish water. ...


How can accurate pH measurement prevent power plant corrosion?

Control the corrosion environment with effective pH monitoring and the regulation of dissolved oxygen. ...


Predictive Approach to Resin Exhaustion Monitoring

A unique deionization capacity monitoring algorithm monitors the exchange capacity of deionization systems and accurately predicts resin exhaustion before leak or breakthrough, regardless of water quality. ...


On-line chloride and sulfates monitoring prevents corrosion

Continuous monitoring of chlorides and sulfates using microfluidic capillary electrophoresis (MCE) technology provides a proactive approach to controlling the impact of some of the most corrosive contaminants in power plant water. Find out how Nearman Creek Power Station in Kansas City simplified the process with on-line measurement. ...


Deriving CO₂ and pH from Conductivity Values for Power Plant Cycle Chemistry

pH and CO2 measurement are central to efficient power plant cycle chemistry. Advanced process analytics instruments can provide accurate, calculated pH and CO2 determination from three simple conductivity measurements. ...


Reduce boiler corrosion and chemical costs with accurate pH measurement.

Appropriate and accurate pH chemical dosing into a power plant's water cycle is essential to minimizing waste of chemicals and boiler corrosion. Precise measurement can save pH chemical dosing costs, help reduce corrosion, and maximize personnel safety. ...


Optimizing Alarm Management in Power Plants

Automated alarm systems have been standard in power plants for decades. Their driving philosophy is to provide operators with as much feedback as possible to make informed decisions. But how to validate which of the alarms in the power plant is the most critical one and needs the intermediate actions to be taken? Check it now! ...


Advanced On-Line Sodium Measurement for Power Plants

Water treatment performance and determination of purity have depended on sodium measurement for nearly four decades. Monitoring cation exchange performance and the purity of power makeup water, steam and condensate has benefitted from measurement of this key parameter. ...


A new method for corrosion prevention

Corrosion monitoring, control and prevention is an ongoing battle in today’s power plants. Two of the strongest indicators of how well that battle is being waged is to monitor the corrosive salts of chloride and sulfate. ...
