Removal of Magnetite from Closed Loop Condensate System in a Steam Generation Plant


Magnetite, also known as black iron oxide, is one of the main causes of boilers and cooling towers damage. Most of the systems suffers from black iron oxide contamination creating thick sludge deposits. This deposits as result of corrosion along with water hardness scales and other unwanted contaminants can lead to system failure. A patented design using magnetic dirt filtration technology was studied for the removal of magnetite in the hydronics systems. The filte...
