Title: ON-LINE AND CONTINUOUS MEASUREMENT OF ORGANIC CARBON IN PETROLEUM REFINERY DESALTER BRINE WATER TO MONITOR, CONTROL AND OPTIMIZE THE DESALTER PROCESS UNIT
Abstract:
Disclosed herein are systems and methods method of treating wastewater. The method comprises measuring total organic carbons (TOC) in a stream of wastewater (202) from a processing plant (204), wherein the TOCs are measured in the stream of wastewater (202), providing the measured TOC's to a processing device (210), determining, based on the measured TOCs in the stream of wastewater (202), a treatment protocol for the stream of wastewater (202), and treating the wastewater stream (202) by controlling a feed control unit (212) in accordance with the determined treatment protocol.
