The DCC1000 System offers a new design for conductivity measurement for power cycle chemistry monitoring.

We designed the DCC1000 System specifically with ease of installation, use and maintenance in mind, offering the user an accurate and reliable monitoring system that is also easy to operate.

High purity water is used in the water/steam cycle in power generation and maintaining its purity is essential to ensure that sensitive equipment such as turbines are not damaged by contaminants. As a leading manufacturer of process analytics instrumentation, METTLER TOLEDO Thornton has launched the DCC1000 Degassed Cation Conductivity System for use in pure water applications in power plants. The system will help technicians make the best decisions for increasing load as well as for plant operations.

"Monitoring corrosive contaminants is very important at all stages of power plant operation; while starting up the plant, monitoring these contaminants can ensure the water quality is adequate for bringing the plant online, and in a running plant, monitoring power steam quality can ensure contaminant limits specified in turbine warranties are met," said Akash Trivedi, METTLER TOLEDO Thornton Global Product Manager.

"With accurate and reliable conductivity measurements using UniCond® conductivity sensors, the DCC1000 System confirms water purity to maximize power production and minimize corrosion," he said. "We designed the DCC1000 System specifically with ease of installation, use and maintenance in mind, offering the user an accurate and reliable monitoring system that is also easy to operate."
