The Dangers of Scale Deposits

It is crucial to keep your boiler operating system clean in order for it run efficiently. Even the smallest amount of deposit is enough to reduce the efficiency of the system, and as the deposits grow, so does the severity of the problem. One issue found in boiler operating systems are scale and sludge deposits. This can occur for a variety of reasons so it is important to know what those issues might be.

The most common type of deposit is formed from calcium salt which result from excessive hardness to the boiler feedwater. Additionally, magnesium, silicates and iron can create deposits, and returning iron from corrosion of steam condensate systems cause them as well. Having any type of deposit on your boiler system can be extremely detrimental and can lead to system failure. So if you have a scale or sludge deposit build up, get rid of it fast!

Having scale and sludge deposits does not mean your boiler operating system is ruined, it is just necessary to properly treat it. Learn more about boiler water treatment here and let us help you protect your systems to keep them running smoothly.
