Chemistry modeling system—A key to increased steam system reliability

Oil refineries and petrochemical plants rely on steam systems to maintain utility and process unit operations.

Robinson, J., Robinson, G., SUEZ Water Technologies & Solutions

Oil refineries and petrochemical plants rely on steam systems to maintain utility and process unit operations. Consequently, operational reliability of the steam system is essential to maintain efficient, profitable plant performance. FIG. 1. pH25°C varies substantially throughout most industrial steam systems. Water treatment chemicals and controls designed specifically for individual plant operating conditions help provide the desired steam system reliability. A proprietary chemistry modeling systema (CMS) helps optimize the selection of chemical treatments, their application points and the water treatment chemistry controls. FIG. 1 illustra
