Boilers and steam generators use hundreds of pipes to maximize efficient heat transfer for powering turbines. Phosphate treatment is often used to maintain high performance drum-type boilers, thus making it critical to implement a phosphate analyzer, while a silica analyzer is critical to ensure high quality steam exits the boiler. The 2850Si on-line silica analyzer combines the benefits of a silica meter and a phosphate analyzer. It delivers reliable ppb silica and ppm phosphate measurements, without the need of a separate PO4 analyzer, for optimized productivity.
Silica Analyzer for Water Monitoring: The 2850Si
The METTLER TOLEDO Thornton 2850Si Silica Analyzer is a reliable on-line instrument designed specifically for pure water treatment and power cycle chemistry monitoring. This Analyzer provides assurance of water purity to optimize ion exchange production of pure water and to minimize deposition in turbines. The 2850Si on-line silica analyzer combined the benefits of a silica meter and a phosphate analyzer, by delivering reliable ppb silica and ppm phosphate measurements. Early detection of trace contamination is enabled with minimal operator supervision.
Ultrapure water monitoring at ppb silica levels and ppm phosphate levels. Silica breakthrough of polisher anion resin is detected at very low ppb levels and contaminated water can be diverted before it reaches critical areas.
Pure water treatment anion exchange monitoring detects the first breakthrough of silica to trigger regeneration before contamination reaches subsequent treatment stages.
Power steam quality monitoring protects turbines from deposition and resulting imbalance, loss of capacity and efficiency.
Power condensate polisher monitoring can detect the need for regeneration at low ppb levels before feedwater is significantly contaminated.
