thread164-420231: Removing silicates from
About our efforts to remove silica from water.
As we understood, it was a single discharge of silica in raw water. After some time silica lowers down to very little amount again.
We washed the boiler with some acid solutions (mostly sulphuric and hydrofluoric) to break and soften these scurfs, and then rinse it with water.
Now our client decided not to make additional water treatment from silica, but if the problem starts to occur again and again - think about it later.
Sincerely Yours
