Recycled water quality must be evaluated to determine its potential impact on the equipment the cooling water contacts. This paper identifies the impact of various recycled water ingredients that could either be harmful or beneficial to the equipment the cooling water contacts. Case histories. Guidelines.
Methods used to destructively determine the actual crack depths in the Pipeline Research Council International project as well as the statistical comparison of those values to the NDE measurements. We also briefly introduce advanced fracture mechanics analysis techniques that can be used to assess the safety significance of crack-like pipeline anomalies.
