Boiler Water Treatment Chemicals Market Trends and Competitive Landscape Outlook

Posted by Divakar on January 27th, 2017

A single day’s loss of steam production in an operational unit can cost manufacturing companies much more than the total expenses bore by companies, in the maintenance of their boilers during a span of one or two years. Boiler water treatment is essential – boiler systems require effective chemical treatment with accurate monitoring and control. A badly serviced steam boiler is like a potential bomb. This is precisely why getting good quality feed water and maintaining properties of boiler water correct, are of much importance. In order to understand the requirement of the feed water supplied to a particular steam boiler, a basic and simple study of its supply/feed water must be done thoroughly. Feed water usually contains dissolved solids, dissolved gases, and suspended solids. These impurities are capable of causing severe damages to the boiler and its parts. In order to keep the boiler working effectively, treatment of feed water is essential as well as highly recommended.

It is typically more cost effective and economical to address the impurities by mechanical or physical means. Chemical treatment is done only to clean remaining parts and traces of impurities after the physical treatment is over. However, it is very essential to use chemical treatments for feed water as the impurities can damage boiler parts and accessories. With increasing use of boiler water treatment chemicals, their demand is estimated to grow significantly in across various end-use industries over the forecast period. These chemicals reduce the corrosion of boiler vessels and pipelines, leading to considerable increase in the equipment life. Moreover, the addition of these chemicals to the boiler water feed increases its fluidity and hence, the flow is maintained and thus, the boiler efficiency is increased.
