Industrial boilers are among the most important and widely used equipment in process and industrial heating systems. You will find steam boilers used in manufacturing, as well as commercial processes. There are a number of boiler water treatment service providers, however, if you are looking for quality service, lower cost and better customer service then you should consider Cannon Water Technology, Inc.
Common Boiler Problems
During regular use, boilers become fouled with depositions of sludge, metal oxides, and mineral scale. These deposits reduce the efficiency of boilers causing an increase in utility costs. Corrosion is the second biggest problem in boilers and if not properly treated can lead to catastrophic system failure. Reduction of dissolved oxygen is the most common approach to corrosion control. Left untreated both deposition and corrosion, can lead to the failure of a boiler tube, thus increasing the downtime and cost required for repairs. All this can be avoided by implementing a proper boiler water treatment program.
The Importance of Boiler Water Treatment
The primary function of the boiler water treatment program is to protect the steam boiler from equipment failure and increase the efficiency of steam production. Keeping the heat transfer surfaces free from deposition and scale will significantly lower the cost of operation and ensure the longest life possible for the boiler and associated equipment like, steam traps and condensate return lines.
Boiler Treatment Chemicals at Cannon Water Technology, Inc.
Maintenance of a boiler is very important for its efficient operation. Maintaining proper water conditions are essential. By using the correct boiler water treatment chemicals the system can be maintained for pennies on the dollar when compared to the high costs associated with decreased efficiency caused by scale and corrosion. We can provide you with the following chemicals:
- Defoamers – Foaming in the boiler will lead to decreased efficiency in the boiler. Our defoamers are fast acting and compatible with all of our other water treatment chemicals.
- Scale and Corrosion Inhibitors – Our chemicals are designed to improve efficiency in the boiler and are highly concentrated to lower the cost of operation and reduce shipping fees.Our corrosion inhibitors are designed to proved superior iron oxide control and protection of yellow metals like brass bronze and copper within the system.
- Oxygen Scavengers – We have developed extremely fast reacting oxygen scavenger chemicals that effectively control corrosion in the boiler. We have several types of oxygen scavengers to include, sulfite and nitrite based treatments.
- Alkalinity Builders – It is very important to control the alkalinity and pH levels within the boiler. Our pH control and alkalinity control products are unmatched in the market.
Boiler maintenance is critical to maintaining the performance of the system. It only takes a small amount of scale on the heat transfer surface to significantly reduce the boilers efficiency. This translates into a very high cost of operation. By using our chemicals you can ensure the highest degree of success within the boiler, reduce your maintenance and lower costs.
