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.

Reverse Osmosis

Reverse Osmosis may sound like a strange experiment from a Sci-Fi movie, but it is, in fact, a popular method of water purification. In today’s ever-growing world, having clean water is becoming more and more of an environmental concern among people everywhere. Industrial plants are converting over to this process to better use and reuse their water supply and can even be used to convert salt water to fresh water.

Reverse Osmosis is the process of creating clean water by pushing contaminants through a semipermeable membrane. Through this process anything from waste to salt to chemicals can be removed from water to produce fresh, potable water. Since these systems concentrate ions and other contaminates, they can cause problems with scaling, deposits, microbial fouling, and degradation. However, with proper maintenance and updating of the components, these contaminates will not be damaging.

Water Consultants of America offers a complete line of products to help your R.O. system run smoothly and efficiently. We have a wide range of membrane performance products including scale inhibitors, dispersants, microbicides, and cleaners that will aid in better performance and help prevent the common issues that arise from using an R.O. system. WCA also offers our customers access to our technical support laboratory, which provides expertise on how to identify problems and makes the best recommendation to ensure your system is working properly.
