As a leading supplier of Boiler Chemicals, we also provide Descaling Services for your boiler maintenance. If you are looking to handle your scaled boiler, we have solution for you. As a specialist with Boiler Descaling Service, we can help you to extend the life of your boiler with a proper descaling service.
Sometimes boilers become chocked with scale and corrosion. We Unichem Chemical Industries, have vast industrial experience in boiler descaling services and chemical cleaning services for industrial and commercial heating and cooling equipment's. Initially we will analyze the deposit, identify cause and advise a Boiler Chemical Cleaning Service to restore system efficiency.
The solution to the problem is to get rid of the calcium and magnesium. While there are chemical treatments that do this, the most popular answer is a water softener.
The typical water softener is a mechanical appliance that's plumbed into your home's water supply system. All water softeners use the same operating principle: They trade the minerals for something else, in most cases sodium. The process is called ion exchange.
The heart of a water softener is a mineral tank. It's filled with small polystyrene beads, also known as resin or zeolite. The beads carry a negative charge.
Calcium and magnesium in water both carry positive charges. This means that these minerals will cling to the beads as the hard water passes through the mineral tank. Sodium ions also have positive charges, albeit not as strong as the charge on the calcium and magnesium. When a very strong brine solution is flushed through a tank that has beads already saturated with calcium and magnesium, the sheer volume of the sodium ions is enough to drive the calcium and magnesium ions off the beads. Water softeners have a separate brine tank that uses common salt to create this brine solution.
In normal operation, hard water moves into the mineral tank and the calcium and magnesium ions move to the beads, replacing sodium ions. The sodium ions go into the water. Once the beads are saturated with calcium and magnesium, the unit enters a 3-phase regenerating cycle. First, the backwash phase reverses water flow to flush dirt out of the tank. In the recharge phase, the concentrated sodium-rich salt solution is carried from the brine tank through the mineral tank. The sodium collects on the beads, replacing the calcium and magnesium, which go down the drain. Once this phase is over, the mineral tank is flushed of excess brine and the brine tank is refilled.
Scale and corrosion deposits of boilers results a loss of energy and heat transfer efficiency. A scale formation can also results in dangerous overheating and risk of failure and even explosion.
