Maintaining and protecting steam plant from the effects of corrosion presents a significant cost to running a steam system. A Spirax Sarco Pressurised Deaerator is the most effective way to protect your plant from the corrosive action of dissolved oxygen, by removing virtually all dissolved gases from boiler feed water, reducing chemical, boiler operation, plant maintenance and product spoilage costs. The use of one of our pressurised deaerators will provide several significant benefits over traditional atmospheric types:
- Reduced running costs – less water treatment chemical cost, less plant corrosion, reduced maintenance/replacement costs, less energy loss.
- Reduced environmental impact – reduced chemicals means less frequent boiler blowdown leading to reduced energy loss and fewer unsightly flash steam plumes.
- Reduced health and safety risk – in processes requiring the direct injection of steam into product, for example foodstuffs or sterilisation, where chemical contamination may cause product spoilage or public health risks.
- Compliance – enables you to meet current legislation on boiler water quality for new boiler plant (BS EN 12953-10).
