Solutions for Steam Boiler Systems
Steam is widely used in industrial and commercial processes for heating, cleaning and disinfection etc... and it is commonly generated by gas fueled, diesel fueled or electrical boiler. Boiler water is treated or not treated depends on applications.
Water fed to boiler is normally treated to prevent scale formation and corrosion. Water softener (ion exchanger or demineralizer) is used to keep the total hardness of boiler water below 5ppm. Oxygen scavenger and deareator is used to remove dissolved oxygen for anti-corrosion purpose. Anti-corrosion agent is also added to coat on the boiler tube surface for additional anti-corrosion effect. No matter how hard we do to prevent the problem of scale formation and corrosion, it appears inevitably but in a controllable way.
For disinfection purpose and production of food & beverage, the water might not be treated to avoid contamination. Under such circumstances, the problem is the worst.
As steam is generated and consumed, minerals are left behind in boiler water. Preheated fresh water together with minerals and sometimes condensate returned is added to the system. The concentration of minerals accumulates and finally deposited on the boiler tubes or heating filament of boilers.
The mineral scale not only lowers the efficiency of the device but also promotes the corrosion due to uneven heat distribution. For electrical boiler, the heating filament is vulnerable when it is coated by mineral scale because excessive heat energy cannot be transfered to the water. It is eventually burnt out.

Often termed "under deposit corrosion," this is a localized, deep penetration of the metal surface with little general corrosion in the surrounding area. Due to surface deposits, electrical imbalance or some other initiating mechanism, all existing corrosion potential attacks a select number of individual sites.
In most cases, pitting is extended throughout the entire metal surface, creating an irregular or very rough surface profile. In other instances, pits are concentrated in specific areas, leaving the majority of the metal surface in like new condition.
When deposition of mineral scale can be reduced or eliminated, this kind of corrosion can be diminished. Click here to see how we solve the mineral scale problem.
