Why Switch to Purified Tannin?
If you’re in a business that uses steam boilers, you might have heard about tannins for treating water. But have you heard about purified tannins, the newer, more effective version? The names might be confusing, but the results aren’t. Purified tannins treat boiler water to ensure maximum efficiency within the system, while also protecting against corrosion, and cleaning away/preventing scale deposits.
Proven Tech that Delivers
In 2011 a large paper mill in Canada tried purified tannins to stellar results. The powerhouse paper producer saw an 88% reduction in blowdown rate with significantly increased cycles. Consequently the company reported big savings in makeup water and fuel usage, as well as a reduction in wastewater discharge.
And since the technology comes from renewable resources and allows boilers to operate using less energy, the mill was able to meet their environmental goals and be the hero of the neighborhood.
Purified tannins are also a one-drum solution, reducing the amount of storage space needed, while also reducing the risk of spills handling time.
Furthermore, purified tannins are surprisingly easy to test. Unlike other treatment options, titration is not needed to test the quality of tannin-treated water. Instead, a simple color comparison test can be used.
