On-line analysers for sulphate & chloride measurements

Chlorides and sulphates cause pitting and stress corrosion in expensive power plant components, such as turbines and boilers, leading to extensive maintenance and unplanned shutdowns. Monitoring these ions at low ppb levels is therefore a key measurement in power plant chemistry. 

METTLER TOLEDO 3000CS sulphate and chloride analyser

Mettler Toledo’s 3000CS sulphate and chloride analyser provides on-line ppb level detection of chlorides and sulphates in power plant water to control corrosion and minimise damage.

On-line, ppb-level chloride and sulphate monitoring

The innovative 3000CS analyser uses microfluidic capillary electrophoresis, an ionic separation technology, to directly measure trace levels of harmful sulphate and chloride ions. With on-line measurements every 45 minutes, the analyser automatically performs direct chloride and sulphate measurements in pure water and power cycle chemistry samples for immediate detection of any contamination. The most important point in the cycle is at the turbine inlet, to ensure that only acceptable levels of chlorides and sulphates enter with the steam into the turbine.

Low cost of ownership

Typically, chloride and sulphate measurements are done with off-line technologies, such as ion chromatography and inductively coupled plasma. The 3000CS provides accurate chloride and sulphate measurements continuously, delivering a rapid return on investment by eliminating the need for costly internal or external lab tests.

ISM predictive diagnostics

The unit features semi-automatic calibration and an intuitive touchscreen interface. Intelligent Sensor Management (ISM) technology provides diagnostics that predict when maintenance or replacement of consumables will be required.

Innovative pump technology offers operational and water savings to mines

As at the end of 2019, mining production had faced significant losses for two consecutive years, with production levels 1.3% lower in 2019, which was also 2.1% lower than in 2017. And the reality is that production levels will likely be lower still for 2020 due to the unprecedented times faced…

Treating wastewater with ozone could convert pharmaceuticals into toxic compounds

With water scarcity intensifying, wastewater treatment and reuse are gaining popularity. But some methods for killing microbes in wastewater create disinfection byproducts (DBPs) that could be harmful to human health. Now researchers have found that ozone treatment and subsequent chlorination can convert trace amounts of some pharmaceuticals in wastewater into…
