The water in boilers, of any caliber, needs to be carefully maintained. Boiler feed units focus on the removal of substances potentially damaging to the boiler. The different types of damage include, but are not limited to, scale- the build-up of hard minerals, corrosion- the gradual destruction of materials, and foaming. The foaming of water […]
A water softener pertaining to boilers is a product that removes hard minerals from the water, such as heavy metals including calcium and magnesium. Also, the hard minerals can be detrimental to boiler performance as the boiler tubes can be damaged. This can be referred to as scaling. Scaling can prevent adequate heat transfer, reduce […]
A water conditioning system is a system that improves water quality by removing or altering minerals, chemicals, and contaminants from a water source. As a result of water conditioning systems, safer water is readily made available. Nowadays, you need the best companies for water conditioning with the threat of harmful contamination.
