Case Study: Power Station Utilizing Reclaimed Municipal Effluent As Process Water
The Redhawk Power Station is comprised of two 2x1 combined cycle natural gas-fired units to produce a total of 1060 MW of electrical power. Critical to the planning and permitting of this facility was the source and utilization of water and the environmental impact of the station with respect to liquid emissions. Based upon these issues, Redhawk was designed to use reclaimed municipal effluent from the nearby Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station for its process water requirements...

A Treatise On Turbidity And TSS
When two distinct physical parameters are used interchangeably, an intimate understanding of both is in order to know when this is justifiable. Two such parameters are turbidity and total suspended solids. In many industries today the concentration of total suspended solids is of utmost importance to quality control and process optimization. However, the measurement most often employed is turbidity. Before pursuing why this is so, a definition and discussion of each is in order...
