What is the difference between film-forming agents and neutralizing amines?
Aquafilm-V’s film-forming agents protect the entire steam network against corrosion by forming a protective film on the metal surfaces. This protection extends from the feedwater tank, to the boilers and condensate return lines.
Neutralizing amines are not film-forming and their role is to simply neutralize carbon dioxide (CO2) to prevent acid corrosion in the condensate; this function is limited and therefore does not protect the entire network.
What is the influence of the film-forming agents on heat exchange, considering that a film is formed on the surface of the metal?
The protective film is of molecular size and has no negative effect on the energy transfer in a boiler. In fact, the heat transfer coefficients observed are higher for the tubes treated with film-forming agents than for those treated with conventional techniques.
How does Aquafilm-V technology help to save energy compared to conventional applications?
Several factors impact the energy performance improvement of the steam system. Improved heat transfer and purge reduction significantly influence energy consumption.
What is the anticipated purge reduction with Aquafilm-V treatment?
If the purge is controlled to maintain the same level of conductivity in the boiler as with conventional treatment, the anticipated purge reduction typically ranges from 20% to 50% of the volume prior to the application of Aquafilm-V.
Is the Aquafilm-V treatment compatible with conventional treatment and must the system be purged before making the transition?
The technology is compatible with conventional treatment products. The sulfite concentration must not exceed 50 ppm at the time of Aquafilm-V’s application.
Can the Aquafilm-V treatment be used to clean a dirty boiler?
This is not recommended. Most scale deposits may be dislodged by treatment, but debris released may cause localized fouling that can lead to overheating and tube breakage. It is therefore recommended to clean the boiler, mainly with water tubes, before applying the Aquafilm-V treatment.
What dosing equipment is required, and can I use the existing injection system with the Aquafilm-V program?
Aquafilm-V products must be injected with an electromagnetic diaphragm metering pump made of Teflon and EPDM with Teflon seals. This pump must be connected and controlled by a device to measure the flow of makeup water.
