The primary purpose of chemical treatment for the steam boilers is to protect the generating system from scale and corrosion, and the feed water and condensate systems from corrosion. When these problems are allowed to occur, maintenance requirements and costs increase. Maintaining a clean and efficient boiler will therefore not only protect your equipment but reduce your operating costs as well; for example, a deposit of 1/16 of an inch can reduce your efficiency by up to 20%. Heavier deposits will further reduce your efficiencies and can also lead to overheating and ultimately failure. Coastline offers a complete range of product designed for the treatment of low, medium, and high-pressure boilers.
- Oxygen Scavengers – volatile, organic, inorganic
- Internal Treatment – Precipitation and Sequestering programs, All-polymer, Coordinated pH/Phosphate and All-Volatile
- Condensate Treatment – Neutralizing and Filming Amines, Organic Passivators
- Boiler Cleanup Products for organic or inorganic foulants
- Resin Cleaners
Coastline also offers a range of products for the pretreatment equipment, such as water softeners and reverse osmosis units. The resin in water softeners can become fouled with iron which can reduce the capacity of the softener and result in feedwater hardness problems. Reverse osmosis membranes can also become fouled with mineral scales and microbiological growth which can lead to reduced capacity and deterioration of the membranes.
