Boiler Water Treatment

Our goal at WCA is keep your business running efficiently. We use a variety of boiler water treating compounds to keep everything working. A deposit of just a 1/16 inch can result in an efficiency loss of up to 20%, so it is important to keep up with maintenance. We help control oxygen corrosion, scale and sludge deposits, condensate corrosion, and more through a variety of boiler water treating compounds.

Oxygen corrosion can cause serious damage and lead to failure of your unit. This usually occurs when boilers are idle or shut down. This can be minimized with chemical oxygen scavengers and the use of mechanical de-aeration. Scale and sludge deposits are formed by heat being transferred in the boiler resulting in possible failure due to overheating. Calcium salts are the most common deposits formed. Proper pretreatment, using quality feed-water, and chemical compounds are the answer to scale and sludge buildup. A third issue that often comes with boilers is condensate corrosion. This usually occurs when poorly de-aerated water enters the boiler and oxygen flashes with the steam. By installing vented condensate receivers, carbon dioxide will be reduced and help to eliminate the risk of severe metal loss and damaged equipment.

Is your boiler running as efficiently as it could? We are here to fix whatever issues your boiler has in order to keep your business in top shape. Give us a call to schedule a consultation (800) 645-1350 or visit our website for more information.
