Oil & Gas Water TreatmentJune 10 2015
For over 60 years, hydraulic fracturing (fracking) operations have safely and successfully delivered the oil and natural gas needed to answer our nation's demand. In 2011, the US House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce reported that, "Hydraulic fracturing has opened access to vast domestic reserves of natural gas that could provide an important stepping stone to a clean energy future."i
SPE Presentation: Chloramine: An Effective Biocide for Produced WatersMay 29 2015
Title: Chloramine: An Effective Biocide for Produced Waters Objective/Scope: Produced waters containing high levels of oxidant demanding chemicals such as ammonia, hydrogen sulfide, iron, and manganese are often thought to be difficult to disinfect using oxidizing biocides such as hypochlorite. It is the goal of this paper to present evidence that chloramines generated in situ through the reaction of ammonia present in produced water with hypochlorite added as a disinfectant can effectively control microbial populations in produced water.
Article: Safe and Green Legionella ProtectionApril 27 2015
One of the largest and most well-respected teaching hospitals in Illinois is also home to a central power plant with 7,000 tons of cooling tower capacity and a 100,000-gal central chilled water loop. When newly issued corporate responsibility guidelines encouraged sustainability and green practices at its facilities, the hospital sought expertise to streamline its efforts.
An environmentally focused water and wastewater consulting firm would better understand the full range of technologies available to meet the hospital’s sustainability goals and to provide programs that would reduce operating costs with minimal capital investment. The hospital contracted Earthwise Environmental to identify potential water and energy conservation management opportunities throughout its facilities, with the goal of reducing water and energy footprints. A site evaluation was conducted to consider ways to improve efficiency, extend equipment life, reduce chemical consumption and provide remote system performance monitoring.
White Paper: Biofilm Control for Industrial WatersApril 27 2015
Industrial operations can face a number of serious problems due to bacterial Biofilms growing in process water systems and cooling tower waters. Biofilm-induced corrosion, mechanical blockages and impedance of heat transfer processes result in huge monetary losses each year. In engineered systems, additional risks of biofilm-mediated contamination include negative public health consequences and product spoilage.
Article: Mixed Oxidant Replaces Cocktail of Chemicals in Power Plant Cooling TowerApril 27 2015
In 2010 NIPSCO installed two MIOX RIO Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS) chlorine generator systems on two of the four cooling towers at R.M. Schahfer Generating Station. After switching to MIOX for cooling tower water treatment, the two towers experienced minimized algae growth, better biocontrol and lower Legionella counts, cleaner condenser tube sheet and reduced differential pressure, and zero negative impact on corrosion rates.
Case Study: District Cooling Water Treatment in Downtown ChicagoApril 09 2015
District Cooling Towers in Downtown Chicago District cooling tower replaces traditional dual-biocide program with MIOX for cooling tower water treatment and achieves significant cost savings.
Case Study: Cooling Water Treatment at Power Plants of Puerto Rico Power AuthorityApril 09 2015
Cooling Towers at Power Plants of Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority MIOX sodium hypochlorite (chlorine) generators remove and prevent biofilm, at a cost 50% lower than delivered sodium hypochlorite. MIOX on-site generation boosts power production output at one of the major Puerto Rico power plants by 7%, achieving annual savings of more than $3.4 million.
Recycled cooling water at Fortune 500 semiconductor manufacturing facilityMarch 18 2015
A major semiconductor manufacturer wanted to increase facility safety and meet chemical storage compliance limitations by reducing hazardous chemicals stored on site for cooling water treatment. The manufacturing facility utilizes ammonia laden waste water from the tooling operations as make up water to the cooling towers. The ammonia in the waste water is estimated at 2-4 ppm. Utilizing the waste water as cooling tower make up is beneficial for decreasing wastewater discharge and fresh water consumption, but it also presents a substantial challenge in tailoring an appropriate biocidal treatment regimen for microbiological control.
