I have a problem with power not being available at the GT's during hot summer days. Fogging has been suggested to improve the situation.
The required water quality is the (traditional !) DMW with < 10 ppm of TDS, <3 SiO2, pH bet 6.5 to 7.5, conductance < 11x10^(-6) mho/cm.
I have the following water available...
TDS 38 ppms, sulphide 26ppm, hardness (Ca) Nil, pH 3 to 4.5,CO2 100ppm - rarely some traces of light hydrocarbons (evaporatable...) conductnce at about 50 or so...
Normally used fuel gas contains much higher H2S - about 1000 ppms, about 4% CO2.
My query is - (leaving traditional DMW quality specifications aside, which are written around ground water treatment) - can we look at the contaminants in the water (instead of the conventional markers of contamination like TDS / conductance) and evaluate their effect for use in fogging ?
TDS in this supply is due to H2S dissolved...and low pH a result of CO2 / H2S again... There is no conventional scalants (Ca/Mg...). What exactly is the effect on the (initial stages of) air compressor / GT if this quality of water is used for fogging ?
I would prefer not to treat (except for filtration) this water...as some of the treatment options (like de-aeration) is likely to create some additional problems (of disposal of H2S laden air...)
Comments are welcome....
