At iwtA, we have extensive experience in thermal power and co-generation plants as well as in the petrochemical, chemical process, pulp & paper and other industries. We have conducted many site-specific cycle/boiler, cooling and reverse osmosis chemistry reviews and audits.

We utilize proven and detailed methodologies to clearly identify key areas at risk in most types of plant (steam, cooling, membrane-based technologies, etc.); we then provide practical and detailed recommendations intended to lower the risk.

We offer internationally recognized expertise for troubleshooting and investigations of chemical treatment-related issues for:

  • Heat recovery steam generators

We can provide expertise in the following areas as well as on-site support as needed:


  • Assistance with the development of common sense, plant-specific bid specifications for chemical treatment programs (boiler, cooling, RO, etc.) so that vendor bids can be assessed on the same basis (this is a very neglected facet at many companies)
