ABSTRACT

 

The intend of the current study was carried out to analyse the water samples of cooling tower of fertilizer industry. During the study water samples were collected from ammonia plant and utility plant cooling towers of deck and basin in a plastic sealed bottle for the analysis. The water samples collected from both the locations was analyzed for the various physico-chemical parameters contributing to corrosion in cooling towers of fertilizer industry. For the samples analyzed and data collected various stastical tools like averages graphs and photographs was applied to make the study worthier, informative and useful. The work also helped to suggest what kind of imitative measures could be adopted along with the present practices carried out in fertilizer industry.

 

Keywords : Physico-chemical parameters, Corrosion, Ammonia, Utility plant, Fertilizer industry.
