Dealkalizers can remove more than 90% of the bicarbonate alkalinity in a softened water supply. High alkalinity contributes to boiler foaming and carryover as well as excessive blowoff rates. Besides improving water chemistry in the boiler, lowering alkalinity reduces formation of carbon dioxide in the system, which is the major cause of condensate piping corrosion.

    Cleaver-Brooks Dealkalizers are available in FRP plastic or carbon steel lined tanks designed to NSF standards. These Dealkalizer systems include twin alternating tanks with automatic controls to maintain a continuous supply of dealkalized water. A caustic injection metering pump and brine tank are also included as standard.
