Silica and Phosphate Analyzer
On-line Measurement for Power Plant Chemistry and UPW
A silica analyzer provides a critical on-line measurement for ensuring water purity in power cycle chemistry and in ultrapure water monitoring. METTLER TOLEDO silica analyzers offer a compact design combining the benefits of a silica meter and a phosphate analyzer to deliver reliable ppb silica and ppm phosphate measurements with minimal operator supervision. This silica and phosphate analyzer provides early detection of trace silica and verifies proper phosphate levels in your water stream.
3-in-1 Analyzer to Maximize Measurement Potential
METTLER TOLEDO's silica and phosphate analyzers combine the benefits of a silica meter with a phosphate analyzer into one unit. An optional built-in sequencer allows multi-stream monitoring.
Ensure Water Purity with On-line Silica Monitoring
The METTLER TOLEDO on-line silica meter measures at sub-ppb levels for early detection of silica breakthrough so contaminated water can be diverted before it reaches critical areas.
Greater Measurement Speed Delivered
Silica and phosphate analyzers from METTLER TOLEDO deliver greater measurement speed with proactive temperature compensation. The fast measurement allows for immediate diversion of contaminated water.
Maximize Uptime with Planned Maintenance
Track reagent usage and tube/filter replacement status using intelligent diagnostics on METTLER TOLEDO silica analyzers to eliminate the inconvenience and costs associated with unplanned maintenance.
Greater Panel Space for Additional Installation
Maximize valuable water panel space with a METTLER TOLEDO silica analyzer that supports multiple streams in a single, compact footprint.
Operation Flexible to Your Analytical Requirements
In addition to the standard SiO2 analyzer, the option for an integrated PO4 analyzer for phosphate monitoring offers greater flexibility to operate based on plant needs.
Reduce Operating Costs
The versatility of METTLER TOLEDO 3-in-1 silica meters allows users to configure the analyzer for multiple measurements and sample streams, while reducing reagent usage and maintenance costs.
Silica analyzers provide dependable, automated, on-line measurements of ppb silica and ppb phosphate for pure water treatment and power cycle chemistry monitoring. METTLER TOLEDO silica analyzers combine a silica meter with a phosphate analyzer to provide reliable measurement under one footprint.
In the water/steam cycle, silica volatilizes with steam and deposits in the turbine. Even a modest thickness of silicate reduces capacity, lowers efficiency and can cause imbalance. In the worst cases, silica build-up can cause vibration that can ultimately result in an unplanned shutdown. Silica deposits can accumulate in a very short time when steam quality is poor; therefore, continuous monitoring with a silica analyzer is crucial for early detection.
Used within power plant drum-type boilers, phosphate treatment plays two important roles. First, maintaining proper alkalinity within the boiler water. Second, phosphate controls scale build-up for effective blowdown and protection against corrosion. A silica and phosphate analyzer allows the monitoring of phosphate levels to enables reliable control of dosing in boilers while ensuring excessive and often harmful concentrations do not occur.
Silica contamination that dries on integrated circuit (IC) surfaces can lead to a number of quality issues, including reduced film adhesion and contact resistance. Out of specification silica levels at resin columns or elsewhere may result in product delay and lost earnings while the source of contamination is identified and remediated. To mitigate these issues, a silica analyzer ensures that silica levels in UPW are continuously monitored down to sub-ppb levels.
