How to Remove Sludges from Boilers

RXSOL

Boiler Sludge Conditioner - RXSOL-15-1103-25

Boiler water sludge is caused by small quantities of hardness salts and traces of suspended matter present in operational steam boilers and feed waters. If left untreated, salt and suspended matter concentrations increase in the boiler water to create a sludge. This sludge settles and eventually “bakes” on to the boiler heat transfer surfaces, forming a hard crystalline scale which increases maintenance costs, degrades heat transfer efficiency and degrades overall boiler efficiency.To ensure that boiler systems are well maintained and operate at optimum efficiency it is essential that the correct water conditions are maintained at all times. This can be achieved using RXSOL Boiler Conditioner

Boiler Sludge Conditioner : is a product to be used in situations where the boiler water is contaminated with oil. This high performance product is applicable to both medium and low-pressure steam boilers in order to prevent sludge deposits.

Benefits :
• Easy to apply and use
• Drives the coagualtion of oil droplets which is removed by blowdown
• Can be combines with other boiler water treatment products
• Prevents deposition of sludge


Feeding Procedure
Feed directly to the boiler by using a bypass pot feeder or a suitable chemical injection pump. For low-pressure boilers the
solution may be applied to the hot well or the condensate return tank.

Note that BOILER SLUDGE CONDITIONER can be applied as it is or dissolved with other boiler treatment products.
