Water treatment for industrial boilers

ICOM, water treatment, industrial boiler

The ICOM Energy Association and the Combustion Engineering Association (CEA) have joined forces to produce a guide to water treatment for industrial boiler plant. The easy-to-follow guide for steam and hot-water systems is designed for use by non-specialists.

ICOM director Ross Anderson comments, ‘Correct water treatment is essential in ensuring the reliable and efficient operation of steam and hot-water boilers, but until now there has been no definitive guide for industrial boilers. This guide [BG04] fills this gap in documented best practice and will play a key role in preventing corrosion and scaling.’

CEA director David Kilpatrick adds, ‘Many of the people responsible for the day-to-day management of such plant are not chemists or water-treatment specialists. BG04 has therefore been written as a simple guide to setting up and treating these systems to ensure long and reliable life.’
