What are the types of Boiler Chemicals are there? There are two main groups of Chemicals for Boilers to choose from. One chemical group for boilers is for steam boilers and the second is for hot water boilers.
Steam Boiler Chemicals - These include Oxygen Scavengers, Amines, Phosphates, Polymers, and Alkalinity Builders.
Oxygen Scavengers - Most common type is 38% Sodium BiSulfite, pH < 4. Other solutions come blended with a cobalt catalyst and alkalinity contributors. These blends are usually 50% dilutions and come in 7 and 10 pH. Using these blends eliminates using an alkalinity source (i.e. eliminates using a separate alkalinity drum).
Amines - Neutralizing amines are condensate treatment chemicals. Cyclohexylamine, Morpholine, and Diethylaminoethanol. These chemicals can be purchased as a single component or in a multi-blend in many dilution ratios.
We have a more complex boiler system. Will these chemicals work for my boiler system? For more complex steam systems such as high steam pressure or turbine boilers, more advanced boiler chemicals are used. Please contact us for these chemicals, so we can assure your receive the correct product. The chemicals listed here will cover 95% of most boiler water applications.
Our facility has 1950‰Ûªs era Cleaver Brooks Stem boilers, 6 CB-309-150 and 4 LR-517-150. We currently are using liquid chemical that is pumped into the condensate tanks based on makeup water usage. Please let me know if this something you are interested in and if so what I can do to work with you?
In regards to the product, I suggest using the all in one boiler chemical. The difference between the product is one has amine and one does not. If you require larger containers and use a lost of make up water, consider using individual boiler chemical products which will be a cheaper option since the products are concentrated. In regards to working together. We sell direct to all end-users. We have over 10,000 customers and consult over the phone or by email at no cost.
