BW100 is a neutralizing amine product for the treatment of steam boiler condensate and feed lines
BW100 controls condensate and feed line corrosion by reacting with carbon dioxide present in the steam and producing alkaline conditions.
BW100 is specifically designed for systems with medium or long steam and condensate lines.
• Easily applied along with other treatment chemicals
• Simple control test
• Reduces iron levels in boiler water
HOW MUCH TO USE
BW100 dosing is controlled by determining the pH Value of the condensate returning to the boiler feed tank.
A low dose should be fed initially and gradually increased until the condensate pH Value is within the limits 8.5 – 9.5.
In old, previously untreated systems, initial overdosing should be avoided as the treatment will remove existing corrosion deposits which could reveal pinholes in pipework.
METHOD OF APPLICATION
The product should be controlled to maintain the following levels:
pH: 10-11 Tannin Index : 12-16 in closed systems. Then as stated.
For steam locomotives it is recommended to maintain the Tannin Index at 6—9.
TDS: According to Boiler Water BS recommendations
Appearance: Clear and colourless liquid with pungent fishy smell.
Density: 0.95 – 1.00
pH of neat solution: 12.0 – 13.0
Solubility: Miscible in water
HANDLING AND STORAGE
BW100 is harmful in contact with skin and eyes. Vapour is irritating to the respiratory tract and high concentrations may have adverse effects on the central nervous system. Wear gloves and goggles. Keep away from direct sources of heat, sparks and open flame. Consult Health & Safety data sheet for further information.
BW100 is available in 25 litre containers.
