When it comes to industries that use boiler feed systems, the list is extensive. Many industries rely on these systems to meet their facilities’ required steam and heating demands. From hospitals and healthcare buildings to school campuses, manufacturing plants, commercial laundry facilities, and dry cleaners, a well-functioning boiler system is essential to safely, reliably, and efficiently deliver steam to these facilities.

To ensure your facility operates optimally, you’ll need high-quality systems and boiler feed water treatment equipment from a trusted manufacturer.

Applications of Steam Boilers and Industrial Boiler Feedwater Systems

Boiler feed systems help generate quality steam generation for heating processes. They also support streamlining efficient and effective boiler operations by adequately treating the feed water. A well-operating boiler feed system can help avoid unplanned downtime, reduce maintenance costs, minimize the risk of corrosion, and prevent premature boiler system failure.

Aside from treating boiler feed water and removing any impurities, a sound boiler feed system also optimizes internal chemistry control and prolongs equipment life.

Boiler Feed System Components

While boiler feed systems may sound simple, they’re actually made up of various complex components. Many parts that make up a boiler feed water system are specific to the type of boiler installed and its overall treatment needs. 

Basic boiler feed systems are comprised of a variety of components. Some of these include:

  • Filtration and ultrafiltration components. These systems filter out dissolved and suspended soils and organic materials that could cause issues in the boiler system. Such filtration components typically remove iron, copper, silica, calcium, magnesium, aluminum, and more from the water.
  • Ion exchange and ion softening equipment. These components help remove hardness from the water.
  • Processes that carry out reverse osmosis and non-filtration. These parts aren’t always required, but they tend to be expected in high-pressure boilers where the concentration of dissolved solids needs to be very low.
  • Components that carry out coagulation and chemical precipitation. These processes are essential for effective operation.

Parts that perform deaeration and degasification. These components are designed to take oxygen and carbon dioxide gases out of the system and tend to help extend the life of boiler equipment.
