What are boiler steam line and condensate treatments and why are they important?
Steam is released from boiler systems through steel pipes.
The residual condensate is pure water, and ideal if it can be collected when
hot and returned as boiler feedwater. But, if condensate is allowed to cool, the
CO2 in condensate water can form carbonic acid and begin to corrode
steel. Steam line and condensate treatments maintain an ideal pH range to
prevent corrosion and preserve water quality and pipelines. Neutralizing amines
lower the effects of CO2 and other acid-forming compounds, and
filming amines for a thin film on metal surfaces to protect equipment from
