Case Study

Case Study: High Chemical & Blowdown Rates

Source: Veolia Water Technologies

The client used soft water make up on their large boiler system and was interested in reducing their operational water costs. Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies profiled the entire application and determined that replacing the older pretreatment softener system with a new softener and RO (Reverse Osmosis) system would allow the boiler cycles to be increased from 6.5 to well over 80 cycles (1.25% blowdown); as well as have a positive payback.
