In boiler water treatment pH is a major issue to be maintained. While the same can be simply done by adding any alkali salt or solution, but this leads to another serious issue in the treatment which is rise in TDS and alkalinity.
Because, higher the TDS = higher the chances of scaling
So, in order to keep the TDS in control, a product is necessary that can increase the pH of boiler water without causing any effect to the TDS and alkalinity of boiler water.
To be able to achieve a solution, Chemtex offers its range of pH booster chemicals that do not add TDS but increases the pH of water.
Please refer your CSL representative to choose the right product for your application to increase pH of your water system.
Disadvantages of High TDS and alkalinity
Handling measures and precautions while using pH boosters
- Increase in LSI
- Increase in scaling tendency
- Rise in blowdown
- More requirement of chemical treatment
- Increase in effluent
- Heat exchanger scaling and then downtime for descaling
Proper human safety products such as Splash goggles, lab coat, vapor respirator, gloves and boots should be worn while handling and applying chemicals. Splashes on skin should be washed off with water immediately. In case of splashing into the eyes, flush it with fresh water and obtain medical attention. Should not be injected. Please refer MSDS for more details.
pH boosters should be stored in original containers in cool and dry place, away from sources of heat, flame and direct sunlight. Please refer Technical Data Sheet, Label and MSDS for more details and shelf life.
