3D TRASAR™ Technology for Boilers

3D TRASAR™ Technology for boilers can be used to optimise boilers operating from low to high pressures and for systems using zeolite softened to high purity feedwater. The programme uses patented TRASAR™ fluorescence chemistries for boiler scale and preboiler corrosion control to detect system risk and variation. 3D TRASAR boiler technology can also help save energy by maximising the boiler water cycles of concentration through automated boiler blowdown control to manage the blowdown water conductivity. Condensate return systems can also be managed by continuous online monitoring of conductivity and pH through this 3D TRASAR™ technology. 


Boiler Water Automation and Control

Nalco Water was built on boilers. We've worked in thousands of boiler plants, asking and listening, auditing and sampling for 80 years. Now we've pushed far beyond traditional performance boundaries to help our customers produce safe, reliable, cost-effective steam.

How 3D TRASAR Technology Works

The Nalco Corrosion Stress Monitor™ responds to preboiler corrosion stress in real time, delivering the correct dosage of oxygen scavenger or passivator. The 3D TRASAR Boiler System then uses fluorescence technology to prevent scale formation inside your boiler. 3D TRASAR Boiler Technology also identifies potential causes of system variability and abnormal conditions, making it a powerful diagnostic tool.

Delivers:

  • Water and energy savings
  • Increased steam production reliability
  • Extends asset life
  • Real-time system knowledge with instantaneous response
  • Reduces maintenance and increases labour efficiency

 
ROI Case Studies

A large university improved sustainability, saving $26,000 per year in energy and water savings from improved management of boiler blowdown.


The Nalco Water Corrosion Stress Monitor helped an electric power plant reduce the cost of boiler shutdown and startup by approximately $700,000 per incident, through a combination of:

  • A significant decrease in start-up time
  • The ability to plan the outage when replacement power costs were low

A paper mill avoided $430,000 per day in lost production by minimising boiler outages related to preboiler corrosion failures.


A specialty tire manufacturer improved competitive advantage in several ways:

  • Enhanced reliability of steam generation for production support saved tens of thousands of dollars per year
  • Extension of boiler asset life saved $70,000 per year
  • Improved labour utilization resulted in $15,000 savings per year
