Water treatment for industrial steam boilers. The quality of the feedwater as well as the make-up water is of great importance to maintain operational reliability and protect and extend the life cycle of pipe systems and boilers. The optimum solution for industrial boiler water treatment. To sustain high-purity feedwater and make-up water flow an optimum boiler water treatment system primarily consists of
Water Hardness is the primary source of scale in boiler equipment. Always use a softener to ensure good Boiler Water Quality. Chemicals are designed to polish away small amounts of hardness that by-passes the softener. Silica in boiler feedwater can be a problem in larger steam boiler systems. You must maintain a Total OH alkalinity ratio of 3:1 in high pressure boilers to prevent plating of silica.
How Water Quality Affects Your Boiler System. Two of the most common issues in the industrial sector are corrosion and mineral buildup. The former occurs when iron molecules are present in the water which is a regular occurrence in most regions. However iron is prone to corrosion.
