Heat transfer and steam generating efficiency are critical metrics for any steam generating system and can impact everything from fuel costs to maintenance expenses and unscheduled outages. Deposition and corrosion are two key problems that can negatively affect these metrics as well as the overall reliability of the system.
We offer Internal boiler treatment chemicals, Feedwater treatment chemicals, and Steam condensate treatment.
SUEZ's Internal Treatment programs provide highly effective protection against scale formation and corrosion to improve the reliability and efficiency of your boiler system. Treatments include patented Solus* AP advanced all-Polymer programs, as well as coordinated phosphate/pH, chelant, and phosphate programs to best fit your system.
Dissolved oxygen is a constant threat to the integrity of boiler feedwater systems, economizers, and internal boiler and condensate system surfaces. Even minor concentrations of dissolved oxygen can cause severe pitting corrosion. Because of its highly localized nature, pitting attack caused by dissolved oxygen can result in rapid failure of feedwater lines, economizers, boiler tubes and condensate lines. Our inorganic sulfite and advanced organic oxygen scavenger formulations rapidly remove any dissolved oxygen remaining after mechanical deaeration.
Corrosion can threaten the reliability and safety of critical steam equipment, frequently taking the form of acid or CO2 corrosion, dissolved oxygen attack, erosion or flow-assisted corrosion, and/or downtime/storage corrosion. If left untreated, ongoing corrosion can result in significantly higher maintenance and equipment replacement costs, reduced runtime, unscheduled outages, and lower product quality. Good steam condensate treatment can help minimize corrosion throughout the condensate system and drive overall productivity with less maintenance, downtime, and asset maintenance and repair costs.
