Garratt-Callahan (G-C) is an industry leader in boiler water treatment solutions and we strive to maximize the efficiency and longevity of your equipment while maintaining steam quality and purity. We provide consultations, as well as equipment and chemical solutions that can help you reduce boiler system maintenance costs and energy use. We manufacture all of our products under a strict Quality Management System certified to comply with ISO 9001:2015 standards.
When you work with Garratt-Callahan you partner with a company that has maintained over a century of experience treating boiler water systems of all sizes and system types in different facilities including industrial plants, healthcare facilities, power generation stations, commercial buildings, and more.
Solving Boiler Water Treatment Problems
Regardless of the location of your facility, the water you have available for your boilers will come with its share of dissolved solids, minerals, gasses, and impurities, all of which can negatively impact the efficiency and life span of your boiler equipment. Without proper treatment to mitigate these elements, your equipment, and even employee safety, are at risk. Corrosion and scale, each in their own way, increase your energy demands and costs, as well as increasing the demand for equipment maintenance and repair. The correct boiler water treatment solution can solve these problems and reduce your environmental impact for a better outcome overall.
G-C has long provided solutions for water softening and demineralization, impurity removal in municipal water, and return water that can lengthen the life of your equipment, make it more efficient, and reduce your energy and maintenance costs overall. Our feedwater equipment products, as well as our steam and condensate return line products, perform under a wide variety of system pressures and temperatures.
Corrosion and Scale Control Chemicals
Corrosion and scale are two of the biggest boiler water treatment challenges, and solving them can significantly lengthen the life of your equipment and lower your maintenance and energy costs. Our boiler feedwater treatment chemicals include oxygen scavengers that reduce oxygen corrosion. The phosphate and all-polymer-based programs correct hardness intrusions to mitigate scale for boiler internal treatment. Steam condensate treatment chemicals including neutralizing amines, filming amines, and ammonia-based corrosion inhibitors keep streamline and condensate return line corrosion to a minimum.
Boiler Water Treatment Equipment
Technologically advanced water demineralization, softening and impurity removal equipment keeps boiler makeup and condensate return at optimal levels through easy-to-use automated chemical and blowdown controls that are optimized for your water source.
Monitoring and Control
G-C boiler water chemical treatment solutions can be used in tandem with the Garratt-Callahan Digital Water Management System (WMS). G-C WMS is a mobile web-based application designed to manage your water treatment system from anywhere. This combination teams the best of G-C’s chemical treatment with G-C’s technology to ensure continuous monitoring, reliable treatment, and fast and easy-to-access reporting.
24×7 remote access to monitor and control your system supports optimal equipment efficiency. With our monitoring tools, you can, in real-time, take steps to reduce scale and corrosion within the system to cut water use and energy costs. Our controls help you monitor suspended and dissolved solids levels within the correct range for efficiency and to prevent scale and carryover. This helps you protect and extend the life cycle of your critical capital assets. Furthermore, our innovative solutions help protect the safety of your personnel by minimizing personal contact with chemicals and also improves water safety for your facilities overall.
Benefits of G-C Boiler Water Treatment
In order to help your facilities with the correct boiler water treatment solutions, G-C first provides a comprehensive system review and chemical analysis of your boiler water systems. The goal of this analysis is to find the correct solutions that will achieve these five essential benefits:
- Extend the life of your critical equipment
