Power Generation

Products designed to address challenges faced by public & private utility operators including nuclear, fossil, and co-generation power stations worldwide. Some applications include make-up feed water treatment, condensate polishing, and radwaste treatment.

Power Generation Applications

The removal of dissolved ions is critical in the treatment of water intended for use in steam generated power production. These ions can cause scale or corrosion if they appear in the steam cycle.

High pressure steam generation requires the removal of all dissolved solids. This can be accomplished with two bed (cation-anion) units or a mixed bed deionizer. It is common practice today to pretreat with reverse osmosis and then deionize with ion exchange.

Carbonate is a form of alkalinity (along with bicarbonate and carbon dioxide). Carbonates readily combine with many divalent cations (especially calcium) to form a precipitant. Calcium carbonate precipitation is quite common in waters where the pH is > 9. Carbonate can be removed by various strong base anion resins and can be neutralized (acidified) by various cation resins.
