Sea water systems on many offshore platforms are treated with small amounts of chlorine to prevent marine growth inside piping and equipment.
Marine growth and fouling in Floating production Storage and Offloading vessels (FPSO) reduces heat transfer in condenser and heat exchanger and restricting cooling water flow in pipes. This reduces the overall efficiency and safety of the plant. In severe cases the plant may need to be shut down. Fouling also increases corrosion by restricting oxygen diffusion and causing destructive turbulences at inlets, which shortens the operational life of the equipment.
What can Pristine Water do for Offshore Platform
Pristine Water electrochlorintors will generate chlorine onsite directly from seawater and dosed at the will ensure this marine growth is prevented thereby increasing the efficiency and reducing the frequency of maintenance required in the off shore oil and gas platform.
