Conditioning of boiler and heating water

Efficient, trouble-free operation and effectiveness of various boilers and heating systems largely depend on water quality. The efficiency of these devices and systems varies with the condition of water – if scaling and corrosion occur in the systems, their efficiency is reduced, and this can also lead to more frequent failures.

To avoid such situations and thus – real financial losses related to the lack of optimal conditions to carry out various technological processes, it is necessary to use innovative technologies that prevent both corrosion and scaling. All of them are aimed at water conditioning – they are both complex programs and solutions dedicated to specific devices, installations and functions (such as closed water systems, boilers for steam production, etc.).

There are a growing number of specialty products on the market that make water conditioning easier, more effective and optimal. We highlight, among others, amine-based technologies that effectively reduce the susceptibility of equipment to corrosion and scaling, modern, non-toxic oxygen reducers (oxygen dissolved in water promotes corrosion), or single and multi-component anti-corrosion and anti-sludge products for boilers.

The agents currently offered on the market allow optimal operation of boilers, other equipment and heating installations, among others, by creating a barrier between water and the metal structure, which takes place without affecting heat transfer (so such agents also reduce the possibility of local overheating).

It is also worth using agents that reduce the susceptibility of equipment to sedimentation processes – even the thinnest layer of scale (e.g. calcium carbonate and other minerals) adversely affect the efficiency of boilers or heating pipes. Prevention with scale inhibitors is fundamental. Pipes with deposits do not transfer as much heat as they should, and this means energy losses. Sediments can also cause dangerous deformation of pipes. This is effectively counteracted by, among others, phosphate inhibitors.

If you want to increase the efficiency of such devices as boilers, you should also take into account preventing corrosion caused by carbon dioxide. This phenomenon is effectively counteracted by neutralizing amines.

Reverse osmosis systems are also an effective way to keep boiler water in optimal condition. Other techniques and agents for water softening and other conditioning treatments are also effective. In addition to the above mentioned agents, we recommend among others: oxygen binding agents (e.g. hydrazine), antifoamers, dispersants and agents for adjusting the pH of water.

The choice of water conditioning method (or methods) always depends on the original condition of water and its final use. Our many years of experience allow us to carry out water conditioning processes based on the best methods and means.
