Boiler Water Treatment

Poor water quality is the most critical factor contributing to boiler system failure and low boiler system performance. Earthwise Environmental provides environmentally responsible boiler water treatment systems and solutions that mitigate these effects for more efficient boiler operation and improved ROI.

What is Boiler Feedwater Treatment?

Boiler feedwater treatment is the process of purifying the water used for hot water heat exchange and/or steam generation in industrial and commercial steam and hot water heating systems. Boiler water treatment companies provide a number of different water treatment solutions for boilers, including filtration and chemical water treatment. The best type of water treatment for your system depends on your boiler type, the quality of your intake water, your budget, and the needs of your facility.

Why Is Boiler Water Treatment Important?

Impurities present in boiler feedwater compromise boiler performance in two primary ways:

1. Scale and mineral deposits create an insulating layer over heat exchange elements, reducing system efficiency.

2. ​Oxygen and dissolved gasses in water accelerate corrosion. This can cause boiler tube failure and damage to pipes and other components.

Properly treating your boiler feedwater is a critical practice that will minimize or prevent unscheduled downtime, prolong equipment life, maximize energy efficiency, reduce maintenance costs, and ensure the best possible ROI for your system.

Another factor to consider is boiler blowdown. Over time as water is lost from the system due to steam evaporation and other factors, impurities concentrate in the remaining water. This water must occasionally be purged from the system in a process called blowdown. Determining optimal blowdown procedure and scheduling for your boiler will optimize performance, and save you both time and money.
