Water Treatment Company Wisdom: Bioslime in a Cooling Tower is Bad

Posted by Greg Frazier on Fri, Jul 24, 2015 @ 05:56 PM

Cooling towers are notorious for growing things; especially microscopic things… They are warm and moist. They have areas that get a lot of sunlight and other areas that kept fairly dark. Whether it's algae or bacteria, it's no wonder that cooling towers provide the perfect environment for all kinds of little organisms to proliferate. In fact, an improperly treated cooling tower can act like a giant Petri dish.

Boiler Water Treatment 101: Poor Steam Trap Maintenance

Posted by Greg Frazier on Thu, Feb 05, 2015 @ 05:58 PM

Would the owners of your company be happy if you took $50,000 of their money and set it on fire?  I know it seems like a silly question – because of course they would!  Yet every day, in thousands of facilities across the United States, failing steam traps go unchecked and the dollars in lost energy just pile up.  Failing steam traps are a major cause of energy loss in a steam system and can easily equate to serious dollars going right down the drain. Think about it this way:  Let’s assume, for the purpose of this example, that it costs $5 to produce every 1000 pounds of steam at 100 psi (depending on your system’s efficiency it could be much more) and that, at 100 psi, just one failed steam trap could potentially allow over 800,000 pounds of steam to escape your system every month.  That means that every month your facility could be losing over $4000 in energy!  One failed steam trap could quickly equate to over $50k per year right out the window.

Boiler Water Treatment 101: What Causes Steam Boiler Failure?

Posted by Dominick Tuzzo on Fri, Nov 07, 2014 @ 05:04 PM

Keeping a steam boiler running at peak performance doesn’t happen by accident.  There are multiple factors that need to be assessed and addressed in order to operate a steam system properly; whether it is in a manufacturing plant, co-gen, at a hospital or in an apartment building.  A poorly maintained steam boiler system will cost more to operate in the long run and could ultimately fail altogether.

Cold Water In Your Boiler Causes The Worst Brain Freeze Ever - PART 2

Posted by Greg Frazier on Mon, Sep 29, 2014 @ 12:57 PM

So in our last post we expounded on the dangers of filling a steam boiler with cold water.  Oxygen pitting and corrosion are the biggest common issues; however, if you are unlucky enough to add cold water to a boiler that is already running, you could have a much more serious problem on your hands.  Basic high school physics teaches us that metal expands and contracts under extreme heating or cooling.  Add to that scenario a high pressure steam vessel and cold water and BOOOM!  It’s not common, but adding cold water to hot steam system could cause an explosion; it has happened and probably will happen again.  (But not at your facility, because you read this post and you have taken the precautions necessary to avoid a catastrophe of that nature.)
