Poor water quality can result in significant operational problems and possible shut down of boiler systems. To limit the potential for scaling, deposition and corrosion, most boiler water is treated physically or chemically to remove impurities and improve efficiency in the system.
Real-time monitoring of boiler makeup water prior to system entry provides an early indication of elevated dissolved and suspended solids concentrations for improved treatment measures. UV-VIS spectral analysis also provides the ability to monitor specific chemicals, such as ortho-phosphate based scaling agents, to improve dosing and balance in boiler systems.
