Corrosion & Scale Inhibition


    The water supplied to your boiler and feedwater system from your local utility must be conditioned before it will meet the strict operating needs of your equipment. Salts, dissolved gases and inorganic compounds are present and must be dealt with for the most efficient operation of your equipment. 

    Some of the more common impurities found in municipal water are:

Water Impurities

Type of Impurity

Possible Source 

Effect on System

Chloride Mineral Deposits Corrosion
Free Acids Industrial Sources Corrosion
Hardness Mineral Deposits Scale
Magnesium Mineral Deposits Scale
Calcium Mineral Deposits Scale
Carbon Dioxide Dissolved Gas Corrosion
Oxygen Dissolved Gas Corrosion
Silica Mineral Deposits Scale
Algae Organic Growth Fouling
Solids Undissolved Material Fouling

    These impurities must be removed. Whether your system is an open or closed type, maximum efficiency can only be obtained by a closely monitored treatment program customized to your physical plant's individual characteristics. 

    Scale, fouling, corrosion, cracking from caustic embrittlement and foaming can only be controlled by  a consistently applied treatment program. 

    We can provide a customized solution.  Through internal chemical treatment of boiler and feed water, demineralization through ion-exchange water softening, and mechanical deaeration, we can increase heat transfer, lower fuel costs and lower chemical consumption.

    A customized solution from CSC Technology  will include:

Familiarity with the equipment in your physical plant and its operating frequency.
A written analysis of your water composition.
Periodic analysis and logging of all test results.
A customized chemical treatment plan and proper methods of implementation.
An evaluation of all in-house testing and correction of any discrepancies from the developed plan.
A scheduled regimen, based upon equipment manufacturer's instructions, of chemical feed, system blow down and all other requirements.
Regular, periodic inspection of equipment.
Development of a chemical inventory and establish reorder points.
Knowledge of all regulations pertaining to your equipment in your jurisdiction. Compliance with local, state and federal regulations.
A regular, scheduled plan and guidance for maintaining the integrity of your treatment program.
