Studying the Chemical Properties of RO Water in Thermal Power Station

Authors(1) :-Suha Anwer Ibrahim

This work deals with the studying the chemical properties of RO water of thermal power plant. The research involved the analysis of RO water through key water quality parameters and by the most convenient analytical tools. The study deals with the conferences of AL-Doura power thermal station that was built in 1966, and bombed in 1980 in first Gulf war, made additional built (two unit each produced 160 Mw) in 1985 by Siemens and in 1988 built second two unit each produced 160Mw by Ansaldo. Quality of representative samples of the RO water permeate stream was accomplished in January 2016, April 2016 and July 2015 during the day and at evening. The results show that the average of conductivity values at evening was lower than at day. Also, the average of conductivity values at January was lower than April and July; the average of conductivity values of April was lower than July.
