Boiler Treatment Chemical : Scale Inhibitor
Steam Boilers and Steam Generators are particularly prone to develop scale on their heat transfer systems. This scale, whether calcium, magnesium or silica based, will dramatically reduce thermal transfer and therefore increase energy costs and decrease production.
Scale is caused by the concentration of hardness (Ca, Mg) ions in the boiler water. If these ions are not dealt with properly they can form deposits and lead to corrosion or even tube failure. To prevent this the incoming water should be treated with a suitable antiscalant / scale inhibitor.
Hydro and Betagard series products are liquid and powdered boiler water treatment chemicals designed specifically to provide scale, sludge and corrosion control in large or high make up volume steam boilers.
