The production rate of electricity that can be generated at a geothermal power plant is heavily dependent on the control of microbiological slime in the plant condenser cooling system.
ZI-CHEM has recently completed the plant trial for a Microbiological Control Program at an international geothermal company in Indonesia. This program comprised of a unique oxidizing biocide and biodispersant combination to control microbiological growth in cooling tower.
The trial demonstrated the capability of ZI-CHEM's biocide and biodispersant products to control microbiological growth below the control limit at a reasonable cost. This program also proved effective at reducing consumption of other chemicals needed to maintain pH levels in the cooling water.
The trial result is the considered significant success by the management of the customer and accepted as a future program for the plant.
