Ammonia Condenser Systems
Effective scale and biological control is essential in these systems. With an appropriate chemical program and water chemistry control equipment this balance is easily obtained. Products specifically engineered for regional water chemistry are able to provide protection against scale deposits and prevent corrosion to provide longer operating lifespans of equipment. Coupled with chemical control equipment, optimization of water and chemical consumption can be achieved.Ensuring that biological growth in any cooling water system is limited is the responsibility of any operator. Control to negate effects of growing bacterial, fungal, algal and slime will dramatically limit the possibiity of growth of pathogenic (harmful) organisms, namely legionella (L. pneumophila). Oxidizing and non-oxidizing biocides work to control growth of many different types of microbes, leading to limitation of possible health risks, optimization of heat transfer surfaces by inhibiting biological fouling of equipment and negating biologically induced corrosion (via Sulphur Reducing Bacteria).
Brine System Treatments
Recent advancements in technology have led to further protection and efficiency of brine systems by corrosion inhibition. Correctly applied treatment can lead to enhaced performance and improved lifespan of equipment. These treatments are becoming essential as brine systems are often a crucial section of site infrastructure.
Closed Recirculating Systems
Water conditioning of closed loop systems has been proven to negate effects of corrosion to the point that a properly treated system should outlast the lifespan of the building. Current treatment methods utilize different corrosion inhibitors, each specific to system type (Temperature, metalurgy, operational conditions, etc.) Proper chemical maintenance of these systems is viewed as critical as they are not only crucial to the funcionallity of the space but are also a part of the building infrastructure.
Focuses on system optimization have led to more refined routes of filtration. Maintaining a clean system can lead to greatly enhanced performance, limit deposit induced corrosion and prevent biological fouling. Filtration varies in complexity from simple (housing cartridge based) to intricate (self cleaning/backflushing) and can even be compounded.
Routine testing of certain water based systems has recently become the responsibility of operations in some instances. Whether grey, recirculating, domestic, deposits or other specialized sample, we are able to provide detailed chemical analysis and basic recommendations in our areas of expertise.
The knowledge and expertise of an experienced IPAC Water Treatment Specialist can be the difference in properly applying chemistry to systems. Years of experience and a network of references can be crucial in events of system failures, reoccuring issues, process and system optimization. Our scope includes and is not limited to heat exchanger optimization, water and chemical conservation for both steam and cooling water and chemical optimization of wastewater systems. Optimization can include the pairing of mechanical and chemical control methods. Your IPAC Service representative is available for consult on any query you have about your system.
The requirement of any chemical program is that it should be monitored regularly. Maintaining chemistry is an ongoing balance and requires the cooperation of onsite staff and a water treatment specialist. Briefing in practical treatment knowledge, system operation, optimization theory, chemical control and testing is essential to the success of any water treatment program. IPAC can also provide specialized on site analysis that include but not limit to corrosion coupons; ATP; corrator; oxygen, H2S, NH3 & VOC measurements, plus air sampling to measure the success of a dust control program.
