Join us for this comprehensive workshop that will identify the chemical reaction driving the potential challenges that various water constituents pose to boiler system environments. Learn techniques to determine the limiting factors associated with varying boiler system operating conditions and potentially problematic water constituents. This includes an in-depth review of the various equipment and chemistries used to remove or control the constituents to avoid waterside issues. At the end of this class you will leave with the "tools" needed to maximize rewards and minimize risks associated with any boiler water treatment programs.


  • Identify water constituents resulting in need for treatment.
  • Know how to remove or control the constituents to avoid waterside issues.
  • Acquire the ability to achieve “green” initiates responsibly.
