Increasing Power Plant Output Using a New Methodology for Cooling Loop Maintenance
Albuquerque, NM - MIOX Corporation, the industry leader in on-site chemical generation technology, announces Tom Muilenberg, MIOX Director of Commercial Operations and Cem Candir, MIOX VP of Sales & Marketing will present the technical paper "How Stripping Biofilm from the Cooling Water Loop Impacts Power Plant Production Output" at the Cooling Tower Institute (CTI) Conference in Corpus Christi, TX on Monday, February 4, 2013.
MIOX presents a cost effective and environmentally friendly methodology to biofilm control within the cooling water loop. This proven approach utilizes MIOX patented technology and Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS) chemistry for improved heat exchange efficiency, resulting in a significant increase in power plant production output.
The new methodology is based on case studies and technical data showing that the presence of biofilm or other foulants in the condenser tubes, visible or not, eventually affects power plant production, especially if the plant is reaching peak capacity. The performance differentiator over bulk hypochlorite is that MOS chemistry is effective at higher pH and TDS values typically found in cooling towers.
"The switch to MOS chemistry from bulk hypochlorite allowed one of our power plant customers to condense return steam more efficiently. Besides achieving operational cost less than the bulk hypochlorite, the power plant added $30 million worth of power annually in to the grid." noted Mr. Candir.
In addition to superior biofilm removal, MIOX technology is safe and eliminates many of the hazards found in traditional chemical treatment regimens including the transportation, storage and handling of hazardous chemicals such as bulk hypochlorite and biocides.
About MIOX Corporation
MIOX designs and manufactures systems that provide on-demand disinfection chemistry, eliminating the need to transport hazardous chemicals and reducing carbon footprint. MIOX systems are used in multiple applications through a wide range of products, cost-effectively producing disinfection chemistry from 0.5 to 2,000 pounds per day FAC (free available chlorine). With this flexibility, the applications range from large industrial cooling towers and water and wastewater treatment plants to smaller swimming pool and clean-inplace applications.
