Samenvatting

Summary
Perth Seawater Desalination Plant produces drinking water from seawater which means it needs to
be very clean. The production of the water needs several treatments with dangerous chemicals, so it
must be controlled and managed tightly; this is the reason why the plant is fitted with many
analysers. But it appears that sometimes these analysers give wrong values, it can be traced back to
the analyser and to the location or other external parameters.
The first step of this project was to understand the different phases of the treatment and the reasons
the analysers were located there. During this stage each step of the process, each parameter and
each analyser was described to provide a good understanding of the plant.
The second step was the identification of the weak analysers; a list was made and handed to the
technicians and engineers. Thanks to this information the third step could start.
The third step was the experimentations. To identify the reasons of these dysfunctions several
experiences had been realized. It allowed figuring out the issues and starting to find out solutions.
The main problems were location, measured range, usury and external parameters like bubbles or
sun.
The fourth step was to find out solutions to solve these problems. These solutions included change of
location, change of device and arrange the sampling points by adding buffer pipes to remove
bubbles.
The last step was monitoring and the recommendations of these changes. A turbidimeter has been
ordered and needed to be implemented; the hydrocarbon has to be control in case of pollution.
Furthermore the new implementations have to be tried after the restarting of the plant.
