Are Your Boilers Running Without Automated Blowdown?

Posted by Greg Frazier on Thu, Nov 14, 2013 @ 01:17 PM

Here in the northeast United States, it's getting pretty cold and boiler season is now officially upon us!  One of the biggest mistakes that we see in boiler plant operation is improper or no blowdown control. The cost versus the savings in this regard can be staggering; and for most commercial or industrial facilities, it is really a no brainer.  One of the ways that we strive to be the best water treatment company on the east coast is by making sure that educate our customers on the complete picture of water treatment, including their mechanical options.
