Did you know that when water is converted to steam it expands in volume over 1,000 times and that it travels a down a steam pipe at over 100 kilometres/hr? Steam is a great way of moving energy and heat around a site from a central boiler house to where it is needed, but without the right boiler water treatment, a steam-raising plant will suffer from scale formation and corrosion. At best, this increases energy costs and can lead to poor quality steam, reduced efficiency, shorter plant life and an operation which is unreliable. At worst, it can lead to catastrophic failure and loss of life.
A poorly-treated boiler is a potential bomb and exposure to steam will cause severe burns and scalding and may prove fatal. In order to keep your plant operating safely, efficiently and economically, Maxwell Corporation has developed a comprehensive range of products and consultant services to protect not just the boiler but the whole steam system including the tank, lines, steam and condensate system.
