The filter systems will protect steam equipment against the cost and hassle of water related problems when connected to the inlet water line.
The Dual Sump / Cartridge System with replaceable cartridges is designed for use with AI Series commercial steam boilers. Features a ScaleX2 filter to reduce scale problems. It will also reduce chlorine and sediment from water by trapping particulates in a second filter as water passs through the system.
It is recommended that filter cartridges be replaced after six months of use, or sooner if the water pressure through the system drops below 20 lbs. PSI.
Scale build-up in steam generating equipment is known to reduce the life fo the equipment, and possible shut it down totally. Scale is developed primarily from calcium and magnesium in water and is measured in hardness. Heat forces thes compount out of solution onto heat transfer surfaces where they form a hard, adherent, rock-like substance. The scale acts as an insulating layer and prevents efficient transfer of heat. Over time, scale build-up impedes steam production, reduces energy efficiency, increases maintenance requirements and eventually cause equipment to shut down.
The filter in this Filter System instantly transforms dissolved hardness ions into microscopic particles that become suspended in solution and can no longer form hardness compounds. The suspended microscopic particles are flushed away when the steam generator water is drained during routine drain and flush procedures. Therefore, the automatic drain option must be installed to ensure maximum benefit of the Filter System.
