Boilers burn fuel to heat water and generate steam. In order to maximize fuel efficiency, AssureChem Water Technologies Inc.s boiler treatments are designed to maintain clean heat transfer surfaces in the boiler.
AssureChem Water Technologies Inc.s boiler water treatment programs involve the use of automatic boiler blowdown controllers. These controllers ensure that the boiler maximizes the use of the water in the boiler and minimizes the use of water and chemistry. Steam boilers are vulnerable to corrosion from the dissolved oxygen found in water.
This is called oxygen pitting corrosion. Left untreated dissolved oxygen will rapidly corrode or “pit” boiler metal surfaces. This leads to tube or coil failure and costly boiler downtime and repairs. Steam boilers naturally concentrate the water in them. If there are minerals present they will build up and form deposits or sludge. Deposits in the boiler form an insulating deposit which increases boiler fuel costs. If the deposits continue to form the boiler will eventually suffer from failures and will shut down.
