19 Technical Sevices Complete laboratory water/deposit analysis Computerized monitoring Corrosion coupons Microbiolgical studies Legionella analysis Water re-use studies Video inspection Statistical process control Regulatory compliance assistance Leak testing & analysis On-site training of customer’s personnel

20 Pre-Treatment Services Pre-treatment systems in use are Ion Exchange Water Softeners Softeners remove the calcium & magnesium hardness from the raw make-up water prior to it entering the boiler feed water system Important part of reducing the scaling tendencies in industrial steam boiler system

21 Steam Boilers Objective of water treatment is to control corrosion & deposition Efficient operation requires control over deposits, which will interfere with proper heat transfer Water treatment plays an important role in reducing energy costs & keeping boiler fuel lines clear, running at maximum efficiency

22 Chemical Oxygen Scavenging Chemical treatment for the control of low pressure boiler & boiler feed-water line corrosion is generally thought of as the application of chemical oxygen scavengers such as sulfite for the purpose of removing residual feed- water oxygen

23 Testing Procedures Conductivity (Blowdown) Conductivity / TDS –Rinse & fill sample cup of tester –Let stand for 15 – 30 seconds –Turn power on to tester –Once reading stabilizes, record on Boiler Log under “Conductivity” –The control limits for on line boilers are 2500 – 3500 micromohs –If reading is above 3500 increase blowdown rate –If reading is below 2500 decrease blowdown rate

24 Testing Procedures Sulfite (Oxygen Scavenger) Boiler Tests Sulfite Test –Rinse & fill test vial to 25-ml line with boiler water –Add 1 drop Taylor R-0638 (phenolthalein) (sample turns pink) –Add 2 dippers of Taylor R-0725 (acid starch) (pink color disappears) –Swirl & add another dipper of Taylor R-0725 (acid starch) –Add Taylor R-0699 (potassium iodide iodate) one drop at a time until sample turns a permanent blue –Multiply number of drops by 10 –Record on log sheet under “Sulfite” –Control range is 30-60 ppm for on line boilers

25 Treatment Logs Treatment logs are critical to any treatment program Logs are an excellent tool used to help maintain systems & identify potential problems in a system before damage can occur

26 On-Site Field Training –Water Samples Proper location point for each system sample Sampling techniques –Test Procedures Review test procedures Perform each test Record results Adjust chemical feed & blowdown to control –Efficiency Readings Locate each parameter to read Ensure proper operation of testing probes Record results Determine if system is operating efficiently Training Program



29 Chemical Handling Material safety data sheets Safety equipment Proper chemical handling Chemical spills Our Safety Commitment All Williard Limbach employees (office & technical staff) have been trained in the Incident & Injury Free (IIF) Safety Program Williard Limbach’s goal is to send our employees & our customer’s employees home to their families incident and injury free everyday.
