Steam condensate in refineries and power plants, is reused in high pressure steam boilers to conserve resources and energy. When steam goes through process equipment, it is potentially contaminated with lubricants, mineral oil fractions, or other dissolved organics. These organics end up in the condensate and could cause coking and scaling in the boiler.
NORIT® activated carbon is used to remove the organic contaminants. It is a key component in the condensate polishing unit, helping to maintain proper water quality for boiler usage.
Low silica leaching of activated carbon is a critical property to protect downstream ion exchangers and prevent silica deposits on the steam turbines.
