Nuclear Power Station Cooling Water Filters

AppNote XRF1915: Nuclear Power Station Cooling Water Filters

Background

Excessive metal content can contribute to corrosion in the piping used in the cooling systems in power stations. Corrosion is minimized by the selection of metal alloys used for the pipes and the chemistry of the cooling water itself. The cooling water is monitored for excessive metal content using both Millipore and Cation filters. The filters are then analyzed to determine concentrations of Fe and Cu, as well as other unwanted metals such as Ni, Zn and Pb. To meet the analytical demands of the industry Applied Rigaku Technologies offers the NEX DE EDXRF analyzer.
