Industrial water treatment
Tip Of The Month
Blow-down is a Money $aver!
Some engineers are conservative in blowing down their boilers, mostly in a effort to save chemicals and BTU’s. If taken to the extreme, low blow-down can cause scaling to take place and drive fuel consumption through the roof. All the savings of low blow-down are wasted on higher fuel bills, de-scaling and even tube replacements.
So, don’t be afraid of wasting a little chemical when you might waste a lot on $$ on repairs. Blow-down is a money saver!!!!

Frequently Asked Questions
If leaks are suspected, installation of an inexpensive totalizing water meter in the make-up line will provide early detection. Regular testing of the water can also detect leaks.
EndoTherm reduces the surface tension of system water by 60% which increases heat transfer. The
increase heat transfer improves system efficiency.
The fluid in a closed system usually contains a suspension of fine, abrasive particles which are harmful to equipment (i.e. pump seals), and leads to unscheduled shutdowns and increased maintenance. There are various sources of these particles, mostly resulting from corrosion. Side stream filtration and scheduled filter changes are necessary to minimize the risk of damage.
