Abstract

Energy resources are going to be exhausted in the near future. It is essentially required to use the energy in an organized manner. Therefore, the chiller’s condenser water has been focused to utilize the maximum of the input energy of the machine. This water can be categorized as distilled water if the contamination level is zero. The low-graded distilled water can be used in steam generators; acid-based Batteries, chemical dilution and even can be used in vehicle radiators to avoid blockades of pipes. Generally, the production of distilled water requires a lot of energy. In the present work condensed water of domestic chillers has been analyzed for contaminants to decide its future use. Five samples were collected from chillers installed in the city of Gurrah Mohallah Mandi Bahauddin, in the Punjab province of Pakistan. Using the ethylene diamine tetra acetic acid (EDTA) titrimetric method,a small amount of Ca, Mg, Pb, and SO4 were detected that confirmed the conductivity of water around 81μS/cm. The magnitude of Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) was 54 mg/L, pH was 6.2 and total hardness was recorded about 0.576 mg/L.
