A medical center was using manual adjustments for conductivity control after an old controller failed, causing them to over- or under-cycle their boilers. They needed to increase control to preserve and maintain their boiler assets, increase cycles of concentration, and achieve their water savings goals.
ChemTreat helped the facility install a boiler controller and connected it to their CTVista+ software to increase boiler conductivity control and cycles of concentration. CTVista+ provided real-time monitoring of the boiler system.
With the new boiler controller and CTVista+ setup, the customer was able to:
- Increase boiler conductivity control from 40 to 70%
- Increase cycles of concentration by 60%
Calculated saving from this project:
- 364,307 gallons per year in water
- 1,102 MMBtu per year in fuel
This firetube boiler mass balance diagram, generated within CTVista+, shows the water savings associated with increasing cycles of concentration from 10 to 16.
Neutralized conductivity trend chart generated by CTVista+ to monitor performance. The green spectrum indicates the range of desired conductivity. The yellow arrow indicates when the new controller was installed.
