One of the leading causes of poor boiler performance is improper water treatment. Improper water treatment, or not treating your boiler water at all, can cause irreversible boiler tube damage called scaling. To avoid scaling, boiler water should be circulated through a water softener before it is fed to the boiler. A water softener removes hard water minerals, like Ca 2+ and Mg 2+, which can cause scaling and damage in the boiler tubes. Acting as an insulator, scale deposits can prevent proper heat transfer, decrease boiler efficiency, and lead to costly downtime and even premature boiler failure.
Hard water contains positively charged ions, like Ca 2+ ,Mg 2+, Fe 2+. The boiler water softener resin removes the positively charged ions from the water through the use of resin beads. The beads that are inside the resin tank are negatively charged by brine, which contains salt and potassium. As the water goes through the tank, removing majority of the “hard” minerals from the water, creating “soft” water.
