Abstract:

This proposal covers the development and prototype testing of a new Smart Water Piping Corrosion and Scale Monitor for use in the main types of water based utility systems including: potable, closed and open cooling water, condensate, feedwater, and, after the project completion, electric cable cooling. The Monitor will have three main components: a new multi-parameter Corrosion and Scale Sensor, WaterExpert expert system (completion in Phase II), and control of chemical addition equipment by the expert system. The anticipated characteristics of the monitor are: multiple sensor surface probe; in-line, real time, direct detection of corrosion, scale, and MIC, comparison of monitored data to known corrosion rates and potential-pH data (diagrams), direct corrosion rate measurement with sensitivity less than 0.01 mm/year, feedback to chemical addition equipment, covers a variety of water systems, water chemistries, and materials, recommends optimum water treatment, rugged design, easy to replace (optional - replacement during operation), learning from experience (smart), automatic reporting and data storage for up to ten years, and as an option, can be installed on a short bypass loop outside of the pipe.
