Boiler water treatment
Many heating applications use water as a heat medium. These systems must be treated to prevent corrosion and deposits in order to minimize heat loss, downtime, repairs and production losses. It is important to know that problems often go hand in hand: corrosion and deposits often occur together and are sometimes irreversible.
Aquatreat offers high-tech environmentally friendly products for the treatment of the above systems that save costs due to their highly efficient operation. We offer versatile and high-performance treatments that at the same time help prevent the various problems in steam boilers. We also help you with your technical questions, reports, deposition analyzes or calculations.
Below you will find more information about the most common problems with boilers. Below you will find our most important products for the treatment of boiler water for low, medium and high pressure steam boilers. We offer you the option of choosing highly concentrated boiler water treatment products that are free of phosphorus, nitrogen and/or amines. We can even treat a steam boiler that is fed with RO or demineralized water with just one product.
Problems With Boiler Water
Corrosion is one of the biggest potential problems with steam boilers and can have several causes. Proper treatment responds to all these possible risks. The higher the temperature and the higher the pressure, the faster the corrosion can occur. Because of the major consequences, permanent monitoring is recommended. Not only the quality of your feed water is crucial, but also a good follow-up of the parameters of your water and the choice of a complete and versatile water treatment product, whereby you receive tailor-made advice for the correct use.
An underestimated problem with steam boilers is deposition. The high temperatures play an accelerating role in this. This can lead to very large yield losses. It is of the utmost importance to have your steam boiler monitored by a specialist who informs you correctly and has sufficient experience. In addition, it is recommended to involve your own people in monitoring the daily parameters. Here, too, we actively help to train and inform your people. In addition, we offer products that have been perfected over decades to have the versatility to prevent oxygen entry, prevent deposits or even slowly remove them and control corrosion with one product. The products have excellent dispersion properties, contain various corrosion inhibitors, prevent the formation of foam and complex hardness ions. In one step you can treat your feed water, boiler water and steam and condensate circuit.
If limescale builds up in your boiler, the efficiency will also drop drastically. The more limescale deposits, the more energy consumption. This when energy already makes up 95% of the costs of your boiler anyway, so the cost will only increase.
