Gazprom's Transgaz Yekaterinburg tests new water purification technologies in Sverdlovsk

A spokesperson from Gazprom's Transgaz Yekaterinburg office announced on Monday that it has begun testing new water purification technologies in one of its Sverdlovsk-area facilities.

Gazprom's Shadrinsky facility in the Kurgan region has installed new technologies in its boiler room to purify water discharged during the production of gasoline. Using a compleoxnate-specific inhibitor, the Shadrinsky boiler room prevents the formation of scale and salt deposits in its boilers and pipes, ITAR-TASS reports.

"Previously, in the make-up water, we get turned exceed iron content," Shadrinsky Manager Nikolai Sukhanov said, according to ITAR-TASS. "It is deposited on the walls of the heat exchangers, which causes them to clog. New installation just sharpened under water purification from iron."

Gazprom will evaluate the success and reliability of the new equipment in its Shadrinsky facility to determine whether it is a worthwhile investment for its other Russian locations.

"This equipment has come in Shadrinsky within Transgaz program of measures to improve water quality," Gazprom's press service said, according to ITAR-TASS. "The manufacturer is in the neighboring Sverdlovsk region, the first year on the market and has had time to prove themselves well, including at Transgaz facilities. However, the installation of this type used in our company have not been applied and equipment [in the] Shadrinsky boiler can be considered a pilot project. If the results are positive, such a water treatment system can also appear in other branches."
