One of the most misunderstood issues in many plants is steam line and condensate line corrosion. At WLFT we’ve developed a wide range of treatments to combat corrosion. Our WALAMINE family of products offers many different blends of neutralizing amines and filming amines designed with boiler pressure, run length and vapor/water ratio in mind. We can even provide you with volatile oxygen scavengers for control of oxygen in steam lines.
However, no condensate line treatment will function properly if steam traps are either blowing by or non-functional. Excess iron returning in the condensate can foul both containment vessels and boiler tubes. Plus, the energy losses, condensate line failures and increases in treatment costs associated with malfunctioning traps are sometimes the largest single unnecessary expenses a plant can assimilate. WLFT can test all your steam traps, identify the bad ones and give you a record to be included in your PM program. Then, if you choose, we can select and install the proper traps to bring your system back in shape.
