Heat transfer and steam generating efficiency are critical metrics for any steam generating system and can impact everything from fuel costs to maintenance expenses and unscheduled outages. Deposition and corrosion are two key problems that can negatively affect these metrics as well as the overall reliability of the system.
Industrial facilities look to SUEZ to help them achieve and maximize their production goals. SUEZ offers the most advanced cooling water treatment solutions on the market, designed specifically to enhance and maximize your production output and heat transfer efficiency.
Membrane elements are significant investments that can face early degradation and performance loss as a result of an inadequate service program. Due to small pore sizes, concentration factors, membrane roughness, chemical compatibilities, and other factors such as fouling, scaling, and premature membrane deterioration can all sufficiently affect system performance. This can result in loss of flux, lower rejection rates, higher pressure drops, shorter membrane life and high operation costs.
SUEZ’s solutions for the treatment for wastewater combine expertise with cutting edge automation and process control of world-class chemistry. Our wastewater chemistry can be complemented with a wide array of membrane-based equipment for removing contaminants from water including a range of mobile water solutions.
