Organics Monitoring in Your Water System – Part 2

Organics Monitoring in Your Water System - Part 2 Monitoring Boiler Feed and Steam Condensate The formation of corrosive organic acids or fouling of boiler components can result in organic contamination in steam from natural occurring products organics, heat transfer or process chemicals Traditional means of controlling corrosion include monitoring for conductivity and pH called [...]

Control of Odors in the Brewing & Food Processing Industries – Part 3

Control of Odors in the Brewing & Food Processing Industries - Part 3 Previously, we discussed the problems with odors that often emanate from breweries and food processing plants as well as learning more about hydrogen sulfide, the common cause of these odor problems. Below, we discuss programs and solutions that can be used to [...]

Control of Odors in the Brewing & Food Processing Industries – Part 2

Control of Odors in the Brewing & Food Processing Industries - Part 2 Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is the most commonly known and prevalent odoriferous gas associated with wastewater treatment systems. In addition to being toxic and corrosive to delicate instrumentation and other metals, it has a characteristic rotten egg odor that is objectionable and disagreeable. [...]

Control of Odors in the Brewing & Food Processing Industries – Part 1

Control of Odors in the Brewing & Food Processing Industries Hydrogen sulfide (H₂S), easily recognized by its rotten egg odor, is usually responsible for most of the odor problems associated with brewery and food processing wastewater treatment. Colorless, corrosive, heavier than air, and extremely toxic, its presence raises serious workplace health and safety concerns. Below, [...]

Organics Monitoring in Your Water System – Part 3

Organics Monitoring in Your Water System - Part 3 More Organics Monitoring Applications Organics monitoring solutions exist for a range of industrial, municipal and ultrapure water applications. Previously, we discussed boiler feed and steam condensate as well as drinking and source water. Here, we will discuss process water and wastewater. Process Water Water used in [...]

Organics Monitoring in Your Water System – Part 1

Organics Monitoring in Your Water System - Part 1 Monitoring Process Process water and steam condensate contamination include inorganic, biological, and organic components. Sources of organic contamination can include heat transfer fluids, process chemicals, and food & beverage products, as well as naturally evolving organics from surface and groundwater. If an excess of dissolved organic [...]

Monitoring and Control of Your Water Treatment System – Part 6

Monitoring and Control of Your Water Treatment System - Part 6 Biological Activity in Cooling Systems A biofilm fouling monitor is used to determine levels of microorganisms attached to surfaces in a cooling system. The monitor is made up of a holder that is threaded on both ends, where each half of the holder contains [...]

Monitoring and Control of Your Water Treatment System – Part 5

Monitoring and Control of Your Water Treatment System - Part 5 Continuous On Line Monitoring Using the Baetz Model Condenser, test simulation occurs measuring surface condenser fouling and corrosion. It is made up of a horizontal, cylindrical stainless steel she made up of one, two, or four removable tubes. The tubes then run the width [...]

Monitoring and Control of Your Water Treatment System – Part 4

Monitoring and Control of Your Water Treatment System - Part 4 Fouling The below image is of the Betz MonitAll. It is a portable assembly used primarily to measure the fouling and corrosion potential of cooling water streams on heated tube surfaces. The MonitAll contains a clear flow-through assembly. Sample water flows in at the [...]

Monitoring and Control of Your Water Treatment System – Part 3

Monitoring and Control of Your Water Treatment System - Part 3 Corrosion Rate A big part of monitoring and controlling water systems that may not always be within a plant setting, is through tracking corrosion rates. Continuous, on-line monitoring instruments that track and measure corrosion do so at the value of millimetres per year. These [...]

Monitoring and Control of Your Water Treatment System – Part 2

Monitoring and Control of Your Water Treatment System - Part 2 Continuous Monitoring Manual monitoring works fine for systems in which water and plant operating conditions change slowly, but the need for improved reliability and water quality worldwide requires more precision in monitoring and control. Water treatment systems are dynamic in nature and to best [...]

Monitoring and Control of Your Water Treatment System – Part 1

Monitoring and Control of Your Water Treatment System - Part 1 The Need For Water Monitoring and Control Monitoring your water treatment system is essential in ensuring that your desired water quality is achieved. Whether your water treatment program is applied to a boiler, cooling, wastewater, or any other industrial water system, it’s important that [...]
