“Once MIOX was introduced into the system, results were seen immediately and the energy load of the plant increased,” said Carlos Eli Torres, Senior Chemist at Palo Seco Power Plant. “The efficiencies gained from increased load production, reduced chemical and water usage, and lower operations and maintenance costs added up to over $34 million per year in savings. The operation cost of the MIOX unit was roughly a quarter of the bulk hypochlorite price. The switch to MIOX was a no brainer.”
“Not only the cost advantage, but also the effectiveness of the MIOX unit was quite visible and it was another testament of how effective the Mixed Oxidant Solution was removing biofilm,” said Tom Muilenberg, MIOX Director of Commercial Operations. ”Cleaner condenser tubing resulted in increased heat transfer, allowing them to operate their turbines at a higher load at a fraction of bulk Hypochlorite cost.”
