bqua water treatment power plant electricity generation

Water Treatment Power Plant:

There are many power generation plants around the world. It takes a lot of cooling water and it takes a lot of high purity water created in sophisticated water treatment power generation system to produce electricity. We need to know how electricity is made in order to understand the water treatment for boiler feed water properties and also cooling tower feed water.

We’ve all seen electric motors, electricity goes into the winding of the motor and causes the shaft to turn. Power generation is the reverse of the motor, if a shaft is turned within the winding, electricity exits the windings.

In a power generation plant, windings section is called the generator. The shaft inside of the windings is attached to a shaft inside of the turbine section. And within the turbine are sets of fins. Steam enters the turbine and passes through the fins causing the shaft to turn. This results in the production of electricity from the generator.

The steam must be very high purity. If the steam has contaminants like Silica present, they can scale out on the surface of the blades causing an imbalance that will eventually destroy the turbine. The high purity steam is produced in the boiler. When liquid water is heated sufficiently, steam is produced. A boiler is an efficient way of boiling water and producing steam. This is why boiler water treatment along with cooling tower water treatment are very important and critical in the water treatment power generation.

The most commonly used water treatment power plant scheme for treating boiler feed water is by using a reverse osmosis system. Along with a mixed bed resin, we guarantee a complete removal of any contaminants that can cause scaling inside the turbine.
