Treating Boiler Condensate with Filming Amines

What are filming amines and how do they protect your system?

Treating Boiler Condensate with Filming Amines

Steam is the life blood of many buildings and manufacturing operations. When companies are looking for ways to lower operating costs and ensure reliability, the steam boiler system is a good place to start. After steam does its work, it becomes condensate, which is often referred to as “liquid gold” due to its low dissolved solids and high heat content. Maximizing the recovery of condensate reduces utility costs and conserves natural resources. As a rule of thumb, every gallon of condensate that is returned to make more steam saves a cubic foot of natural gas.

Why Should I Have My Site Audited?

The scariest four words in the United States are “you are being audited.” These words are usually associated with the IRS reviewing tax filings and typically result in additional taxes, penalties, and fees. But in water management, being audited should be looked at from a completely different view. A water management audit works in much the same way as a routine checkup at your doctor’s office. During an audit, your system is reviewed for ways to improve its overall health. This goes beyond just increasing cycles to reduce blowdown and energy consumption. Audits focus on identifying other potential sources of makeup water, water reuse, and improved efficiencies.

Solid Water Treatment Chemistry

A Safer, Easier to Handle, and More Sustainable Solution

Solid Water Treatment Chemistry

Cooling towers, steam boilers, and recirculating closed loop systems require effective water treatment chemistry for reliable and efficient operation. Liquid treatment chemicals are traditionally used because they are easier to manufacture and add to systems. But liquids aren’t always the best fit and present safety and environmental concerns that are often overlooked.

Types of Boilers in Industrial Water Treatment

Boilers and steam production are essential to our modern lives. Boilers are used in almost every industry from generating electricity to heating buildings and everything in between. Due to the diverse demands for steam production, boilers come in various types and sizes.

Common Problem-Causing Impurities in Water

Water is one of the most abundant resources we have in the world. It is considered the ultimate sustainable resource due to the hydrologic cycle that returns water back to nature for reuse in the form of precipitation. This precipitation, when immediately formed, will be water in its purest form. As it falls through the sky and travels to the different water sources (e.g., ground water, surface water, etc.) it will pick up a variety of impurities. Water is therefore commonly called the universal solvent since it has the ability to dissolve, to a certain extent, almost every substance found in nature. However, not all water qualities are the same and will vary across geographic regions.
