Abstract:

The demand for freshwater for various industries has been increasing due to population growth. Water is directly used in boilers to produce steam and is also used in cooling towers for cooling machinery, heat exchanger for increasing the efficiency and cleaning the various components thereof. The coal based thermal power station under the study has been using ground water from nearby river for all industrial purposes. An attempt has been made in the present investigation to evaluate the treatment imparted by thermal power station by conducting intensive and comprehensive characterization study employing a time proportional composite sampling an analysing for important parameters in Laboratory. During the study it was found that the treatment given by the thermal power station is quite satisfactory and scale formation and corrosion problems which were earlier severe have been resolved by adopting treatment technology.
