Looking for Trouble? Just Add Water
Have you ever had your pump cavitate or your system simply shut down as you heated it just past 200°F? If so, you most likely found the culprit was water.
Am I right?
Water may sound like a harmless liquid but as it starts to boil that liquid turns to steam and expands by about 1000 times, wreaking havoc on pumps, tripping safety switches and causing a big safety hazard.
Whether it comes from a leaky heat exchanger, accidental contamination or even simple condensation, a few ounces of water is enough to cause you lots of pain.
It’s not as simple to remove as you might think either, so we’ve written a short article on how to deal with water in your heat transfer system we hope will shed some light on this tricky subject.
Check it out – it might just save you a lot of time and trouble.
