It is no secret that corrosion prevention in steam generators is vital. It is common knowledge that chemistry can be successfully utilized to minimize corrosion in steam-generating and condensate-return systems.
However, many plant personnel tend to think chemical programs are designed only to treat the bulk water. In actuality, the primary function of a good program is to protect metal surfaces. In a blog post, ChemTreat explains how effective water treatment can help prevent steam generation equipment corrosion. By developing a film-forming amine treatment program, the company is able to provide steam generator corrosion protection.
