What Should I Use To Treat My Boiler Water System?

Boilers rely on consistent water treatment to stay operational and keep downtime to a minimum and make sure that your business stays profitable.  The use of water treatment with your boiler prevents corrosion, scale buildup, and other forms of damage that can reduce the efficiency and lifespan of your equipment. Water treatment can also improve the quality of steam and reduce the risk of equipment failure and downtime…Read More

What Chemicals Should I Use For pH Adjustments In My Wastewater?

Sulfuric acid and sodium hydroxide (caustic) are most commonly used for neutralizing acids or bases. Caution must be used for pH adjust applications as an exothermic reaction will occur generating heat. The more severe the application the more heat generated. For example; pH adjusting tap water will create very little heat and is a non-issue. Neutralizing solutions with a high percentage acidic or bases can generate significant heat and therefore must be considered in design and materials. Use caution when doing any pH adjustment…Read More

Why Do I Need Water Treatment In A Close Loop System?

A closed loop water system often falls into the “fill it and forget it” mode of operation. The enclosed water circulates unexposed to outside elements or foreign contamination and doesn’t require extensive maintenance. While this type of system might not be subject to the debris and dirt an open cooling tower can accumulate, within a closed loop water system a slight change in the chemistry, differential pressure or flow rate can jump start the process of corrosion. If left unchecked, corrosion can damage critical equipment, requiring costly repairs or replacement…Read More.
