Boiler Water Pretreatment

Boiler feedwater consists of makeup water and in some systems condensed steam. Regardless of the water source, problems in water treatment will propagate through the entire steam cycle if not corrected. Maintaining and troubleshooting the equipment utilized to process raw water or condensate constitutes a critical step in the cycle.

There are a number of makeup pretreatment techniques for boilers including filters, dealkalizers, aerators to remove hydrogen sulfide, demineralizers and reverse osmosis which has become more commonplace in recent years. The most common form of pretreatment is water softening. Wastewater Treatment Technology field engineers can assist in recommending treatment programs to protect pretreatment equipment or enhance performance to reduce water, energy and maintenance costs.

Regardless of pretreatment equipment, boiler feedwater typically contains traces of oxygen that present a risk of corrosion to the feedwater and boiler metallurgy. Oxygen pitting attacks can result in rapid failures in feedwater lines, especially economizers, as well as boilers and condensate lines. Wastewater Treatment Technology offers efficient oxygen scavenger treatment chemicals that are essential to meet industrial standards while minimizes unplanned downtime, production losses and maintenance costs.
