Power Utility

The operation of power utilities is critically dependent on water for maximizing efficiency and power generation rates and protection of the power generating asset from premature corrosion. Maximizing performance in these areas have a very high return on investment, given that the majority of the cost of power utilities are fixed capital for assets.

Some of the critical areas that must be focused on in order to ensure the reliable and efficient operation of the plant include:

  • Slime control in heat exchangers and cooling towers of cooling systems
  • Suspended solids control in low velocity heat exchangers
  • Corrosion protection of cooling systems to maximize plant life & performance
  • Scale deposit control to maximize capacity and efficiency of critical cooling heat exchangers
  • Control steam purity from boilers to protect steam turbines
  • Management of boiler feed water purity
  • Minimizing deposit weight density by reducing iron levels in return condensate

The water management programs developed by ZI-CHEM are based on global technologies that have been applied in the field for many years and refined to optimize and enhance results. These are delivered with dedicated and experienced field service teams that are based close to or inside the plant site to ensure attentive support and rapid responses are provided, so that the objectives of the programs are achieved.
