A Cooling system is subject to pitting, corrosion, cavitations, erosion and electrolysis.
Engine cooling systems contain carefully blended additives that prevent scale deposits and corrosion of engine waterways. It is very important that the concentration of the additive is maintained at the correct level for optimum protection.
Although coolants are formulated to help prevent these problems from occuring, regular coolant testing and routine maintenance can help you achieve maximum system efficiency and save you time and money in less downtime, fewer repairs and determining proper drain intervals.
Marine Boiler and Cooling water kits will provide simple and accurate testing.
A boiler water system supplies steam for various processes such as pumping, heating, cooling, cleaning and hot water for accommodation.
Condensate is steam that has been returned to its liquid state. Steam, which is manufactured in the boiler, is used for various shipboard processes. Control of the condensate system is critical to the overall operation of the boiler. If the condensate system is not protected, corrosion will occur. Corrosion eats away at the metal in the pipes and equipment in the system. This can cause leaks in process equipment that can result in a process shutdown and expensive system repairs.
CMT test kits are very simple to use and will enable the ship's engineer to monitor scale and inhibitor levels accurately. Regular testing will allow rapid corrective action to take place, maintaining optimum operating conditions, minimise down time and reduce costs.
