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
metaland 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
