Boiler Water Sludge Conditioners

Boiler Water Sludge Conditioners

In this technical article covering boiler water treatment chemicals we look at the problems affecting steam boilers and boiler systems and how a well planned boiler water treatment programme can help manage the problems associated with the accumulation of boiler sludge.

We examine the problems caused by the build-up of sludge in steam boilers and boiler water systems and how to minimise its negative impact using specialist chemical formulations. We consider the detrimental effects of "sludge" in boiler systems and the selection and effective use of boiler water sludge conditioners to combat sludge build up and reduced boiler efficiencies.

Salts and suspended matter

During the operation of a steam boiler small quantities of hardness salts are introduced, together with traces of suspended matter into the feed-water. Over time the concentrations of these salts and suspended matter build up, in the form of a 'sludge', and if not treated properly it can settle on to heat transfer surfaces, eventually 'baking' on to form a hard crystalline scale.

Polymer based boiler sludge conditioners

Certain water treatment chemicals, phosphates for example, if added incorrectly could also precipitate and add to this scale problem. To avoid such situations, consideration should be given to the use of polymer based boiler water sludge conditioners to prevent the suspended solids from settling and 'baking' on to important boiler system surfaces. Polymer conditioners do this by keeping the unwanted matter (sludge) in solution, which can then be removed via the boiler blowdown.

Iron removal using polymers

Polymers that are specifically designed to assist with the removal of iron are also available. These should be used to remove corrosion by-products from the boiler. If these by-products are not removed they can settle on other metal surfaces causing bi-metallic corrosion or even under deposit corrosion.

Boiler treatment products

Accepta have a number of highly effective, technically advanced 'sludge' conditioners developed to help prevent suspended solids baking onto heat transfer surfaces causing reduced heat transfer efficiency.
