Protect Boiler Systems With Deaeration

Simply put, deaeration is the process of removing air molecules from liquid or another gas. There are several potential reasons for deaerating a gas or liquid. These include removing oxygen and other gases from feed water, heating up incoming water before returning condensate at a specific temperature, reducing the possibility of solubility of gases, and injecting water at the highest possible temperature.

Deaeration to Prevent Corrosion

Deaeration, either mechanical or chemical, is a vital component of boiler water control and protection. Corrosion is a serious concern in boiler systems and dissolved gas is the most common culprit. Even a very small amount of gas can result in iron deposits and pitting inside the boiler system. Unfortunately, makeup water and condensate return feed water often carry oxygen into the boiler system. Other potential sources of oxygen include

  • Leaks along suction pumps
  • Open condensate receiving tanks
  • Non-deaerated water in condensate pump seals

What You Need To Know About Fire Suppression Systems

California, along with parts of Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Utah, Idaho, and Montana, is located in a region prone to wildfires that spans across the majority of the West Coast. As such, both businesses and laypeople need to consistently protect themselves against the threat of wildfires. Just last year, California was home to the world’s largest wildfire recorded in modern history by a measure of surface area. The 2018 California wildfire season also resulted in the direct destruction of more buildings, homes, and other structures than any other fire in history. Let’s take a look at what fire suppression systems are and also go over the wealth of benefits that they bring to the proverbial table.

What Is A Fire Suppression System?

Fire suppression systems contain all the components necessary to alert relevant authorities that smokey air and high temperatures have been detected and where. They also have light-up evacuation signs …
