Boiler water treatment is important for both safety and efficiency. As water evaporates into steam, it leaves behind impurities as deposits. Over time, these deposits build, decreasing steam generation rates. Without proper maintenance, this can lead to mechanical failure or even boiler explosions.
The most effective treatments are generally preventive, although sediment deposits will occur in any boiler water heater over time. As such, both proactive and reactive solutions are necessary. Click here to read this blog from Wattco.
