The Importance of Treating Boiler Feedwater

A deaerator works to eliminate harmful gases from a feedwater supply. If boiler feedwater is untreated, it can result in reduced boiler efficiency, a drop in the boiler flow rate or boiler failure to produce steam or hot water.

By treating your boiler feedwater, you can:

  • prevent deposits on boiler surfaces that weaken metal and cause heat transfer losses
  • prevent oxygen corrosion, which causes pitting of boiler tubes and rust deposits
  • prevent low pH (below 9 causes corrosion)
  • prevent steam condensate contamination
