Boiler water treatment is an important part of boiler maintenance, and proper treatment can save time and money in the long run. Water can become a breeding ground for many different issues that could impact the performance of a boiler, or lead to a shortened working lifespan. Depending on the water makeup, application, and other factors, one or several treatment options may be needed to treat the water. FCT Water offers traditional water treatment options as well as several cutting edge options that are quickly gaining popularity and seeing more and more use within the industry. Below are two of our favorite options for boiler water treatment: purified tannins and filming amines.
Tannins have been used for boiler water treatment for a long time, but purified tannins is a lesser known but proven technology that’s quickly becoming the go-to choice for many businesses. Purified tannins offer several advantages over both their non-purified counterparts, as well as over traditional boiler cleaning and treatment solutions like sulfites and phosphates. These advantages include a boost to boiler efficiency, a significant reduction in operational costs, as well as an ability to remove existing scale deposits and protect against corrosion. Purified tannins are an environmentally friendly boiler treatment option derived from renewable sources, that works across different boiler industries and pressures.
Filming amines, also known as film-forming amines, or polyamines, are a boiler water treatment option that function based on their tendency to form a hydrophobic protective film throughout a given system. Depending on the specific needs of a system, filming amines can achieve several benefits such as: inhibiting corrosion, aiding in the prevention or removal of silt and mineral deposits, and can act as an organic dispersant. As part of a water treatment program, filming amines can play a major role in keeping a water system operating smoothly and efficiently.
Whatever your needs may be, FCT Water offers comprehensive water treatment services, including full system audits, and can help you optimize your water systems and create a program of water treatment to keep your water applications running more smoothly and efficiently than ever.
