If boilers are to operate effectively, the water treatment should ensure reliability and safe operation.
LCS can provide a tailored water treatment programme to protect equipment, minimise energy usage, and optimise pure steam production.
The most common problems with operating boilers are scale and corrosion, however sludge deposition and foaming can also occur. These problems manifest themselves as a reduction in boiler efficiency, a reduction in plant life and potentially - catastrophic failure.
Good practice includes pre-conditioning of the raw water itself by water softening, ion exchange or reverse osmosis, followed by chemical dosing to reduce or remove impurities.
Corrosion inhibitors, oxygen scavengers and dispersants are generally used although other products such as sludge conditioners, alkalinity builders and anti foam agents may also be required. LCS can offer a wide range of products which are optimised for different systems.
