On-site, on-demand generation of MIOX mixed oxidant disinfecting solution provides several advantages for the cooling tower industry. These include excellent control of microbial populations even at the elevated pH typical of cooling tower waters, no negative impact on traditional scale and corrosion inhibitors, and environmentally friendly operating conditions.
When certification is considered for hazardous location (HazLoc) products, the first thought that comes to mind is safety. Safety has a very specific meaning in the context of HazLoc certifications — the instrument itself, by its design or construction, must not be the cause of a safety problem or incident. Gas or flame detection instruments are capable of rapid, accurate detection of flame or gas events that could lead to a safety incident if present in those environments.
Many failures of heat exchanger tubes occur within the first six inches. Inlet-end erosion, impingement attack, stress corrosion cracking, pitting, and crevice corrosion are typical damage/failure mechanisms encountered in the chemical, petrochemical, and oil refining industries.
