3D TRASAR™ Technology for Once Through Cooling

Once through cooling water removes heat from surface condensers and for service water applications in the electric power generation industry. 3D TRASAR™ for Once Through Cooling prevents operational problems — scale, corrosion and microbial fouling — and minimizes Total Cost of Operation.

Every cooling system operates under stress. When stress is too high, operational problems — scale, corrosion, microbial growth or macro fouling — result. System users rarely have control of the sources of changing stress. Factors like variation in cooling water chemistry, ambient temperatures, bio-activity drought conditions, excessive rainfall, algae blooms, or agricultural runoff of suspended solids influence the potential for an operational problem to occur.

3D TRASAR™ for once through cooling systems measures key system parameters related to system stress. It detects changes, responds with appropriate corrective action and communicates this information with system operators. By managing a once through cooling system based on the stresses placed upon it, 3D TRASAR™ prevents operational problems and minimizes Total Cost of Operation (TCO).
