CUSTOMIZED BOILER SYSTEM TREATMENT
Filtrex Solutions field engineers provide the highest level of boiler expertise available. We provide a full line of boiler water treatment chemicals, testing, and control equipment. Filtrex Solutions specialists are able to provide guidance and recommendations for high-pressure steam boilers or hot water boilers that maximize system reliability at an economical cost.
Filtrex Solutions inspects every phase of your boiler operation, including feedwater quality, boiler internals, fireside conditions, condensate return, chemical feed, control and monitoring equipment, and blowdown control systems.

A boiler water treatment program’s primary function is to keep heat transfer surfaces (steam-generating and associated tubes) free from scale and deposition. The second function is to inhibit corrosion. Boiler deposits are problematic because they typically contain undesirable levels of metal oxides, mineral scale, sludge, or various combinations. Corrosion generally occurs because of excessive levels of dissolved oxygen, but can also develop under tube deposits. Deposits and corrosion can lead to boiler tube failures that result in costly repairs and downtime.
Boiler blowdown is usually automated with a blowdown heat recovery system so energy can be harnessed and reused. Our field engineers determine the exact blowdown schedule and procedure that saves you time and money, while maintaining peak performance.
