The element /species list presently contains 19 species, selected from among those of interest to power plant operators. The program includes room for expansion by adding acids and/or bases of interest to individual users.
Applications of the pHCond Solver
Validation of analytical instrument performance: Mixes of known chemical composition are defined in terms of pH, specific conductivity, cation conductivity and degassed cation conductivity. Once defined, these mixes may be used to simultaneously validate the performance of multiple instruments.
Evaluate consistency among measurement: For example, if pH and conductivity measurement are not in accordance, the chemist should be alerted to find the reason(s) for the discrepency
Draw working curves: Plot the variation of chemical parameters as a function of concentration of a target species over a defined range in the presence of various matrices. These curves are useful guides for standard solution preparation and to readily see effects of ingress or loss of key chemicals in a process.
Predict and draw titration curves: Identify neutralization endpoints. Define quantities of different acids or bases required for neutralization.
