In many industrial, mining, and oil and gas operations, multiple processes involving water and fluids can be occurring at a single location at any one time. Often, these complicated processes may seem unrelated but they can affect one another and cause poor water quality, unforeseen chemical reactions, and costly equipment failures.
Our approach is a little different in that it is very “data-driven”. We gather as much data as possible and then use our decades of experience to develop a comprehensive plan for your entire facility.
Surveys: As a first step, we perform a comprehensive survey to identify all potential sources of water and fluids entering and leaving the facility. These survey results can be very interesting. They can reveal previously unknown volumes of water and chemicals coming into the system intermingling and creating different reactions and issues.
Data Gathering & Documentation: After the initial survey, we gather as much water quality, flow, pressure, and chemical data as possible with a wide array of measurement and control systems including:
- Flow meters and pressure sensors
- pH control systems
- COD/BOD analyzers
- Water quality tests
- Level controllers
We also provide checklists and spreadsheets with automatic graphing capability that can show system changes and allow for further system analysis and process improvement.
System Analysis & Process Modifications: By analyzing this data, we are able to recommend various process and chemical changes which will maximize your system operations and reduce costs. Adding measurement devices and control systems will help onsite personnel quickly react to any changes in the system and effectively address issues before they become costly problems.
Developing a comprehensive water management system can have many advantages and be a smart move for your company. Give us a call at 800-453-8639 for more information.
