Water circulation in power plant has isonomy to blood circulation in human body
The chemistry of water in nature is a vast and complex subject which requires understanding of treatment and conditioning for industrial usage. Water quality and its applications in power plants, and resolving water related problems in boilers and associated fields, have become important features of engineering and management. This book will be helpful to water analysts and power plant engineers to conceive the concept of water treatment & control in-process chemistry and troubleshoot boiler operations. This book can be utilized to bridge the gap between applied chemistry of water and power plant operations.Data tabulation and graphical presentations make the subject clear and easy to understand.
Various analytical techniques have been discussed to troubleshoot the process problems arising during operation. The presentations are made in the format of a workbook, as a ready reference for operating engineers of power plant. Effort is made to explain water chemistry with examples, and chemical reactions related to treatment and effect of impurities in process water, along with treatment programs.
The book deals with:Effect of water on quality of steamBoiler metal corrosionLoss of efficiency while scaling/ depositsAllowable corrosion and depositsOperational and maintenance problems and remedial action plansStandardization and tolerances of water parameters in power plants.Spectrum of water properties Effects of water quality on process parameters Corrosion and deposits in steam generators,Remedial treatment & controls applied to water in process and technique to ascertain parameters to minimize the ill effect in process.
