Application Note: TOC Monitoring in Boiler Feed and Cooling Water of Fossil-Fuel-Fired and Nuclear Power Plants
21 February 2019

Water within power plants, and particularly boiler feed water, is subject to strict analytical control. Organic impurities in the boiler feed water can easily oxidize under high pressure and high temperatures and may lead to the formation of corrosive organic acids and carbonic acid. In this application note multi N/C® UV HS , an example of wet chemical UV digestion, was used, alongside autosamplers, to determine TOC measurements. It was shown to provide extremely reliable results.
