A Water treatment plan should be implemented as part of the boiler system design to prolong the life of the boiler. A water treatment programme will involve:
The water softeners remove the hardness from the water.
Impurities in the boiler feed water can cause problems with the efficiency of steam boilers and steam systems. It is usually necessary to chemically treat the feed water to remove or modify impurities.
In order to ensure the safe, efficient and economical running of a boiler plant, it is imperative that the boiler water is sampled for analysis at regular intervals.
