Reconciliation for Industrial Water Simulations

Reconciling your water quality is a critical first step in OLI simulation software. While it may seem simple, there are many decisions which can influence the reconciled water quality and resulting treatment simulations. This Spotlight Seminar will cover conversions for typical water quality analyses (like phosphate as P, nitrate as N, alkalinity as CaCO₃), guidance for adding parameters which vary as a function of pH (like alkalinity and ammonia), guidance on which ion(s) to use for balancing, as well as options for elements like boron which can be present as different species. A case study will be presented which shows the effect of different reconciliation options on the water analysis and resulting impact on the treatment simulation.
