Nalco Pretreatment Solutions (PTS) combines appropriate equipment with water treatment chemical expertise to maintain an efficiently operating steam generator. Steam condensate will often return with contamination from the process and corrosion materials from the steam piping. Nalco PTS can determine if a condensate polisher can be a cost-effective process to treat the water so it can be reused, saving energy and water treatment chemicals. Rental and capital options yield an ROI typically less than one year.
Nalco PTS provides water treatment equipment to treat water makeup for steam generation while maintaining high-quality water entering the boiler loop. Depending on the water quality required, the equipment selected may include: water softener systems, complete Reverse Osmosis (RO) systems, Deionization (DI) including portable exchange DI, filters and other membrane technologies. We also provide specialized condensate polishing equipment for recycling steam condensate to reduce hardness and “crud” before it can be recirculated back to the steam generator.
