Closed system water treatment

Chemical cleaning, descaling, dosing and treatment of new and existing ‘closed systems’ also known as ‘closed loop’ pipework – heating systems – chilled water systems – to BSRIA specification and application guides. 

In simple terms a closed circuit or closed loop water system is a pipework design that enables water to be circulated for either heating or cooling purposes in domestic ,industrial or commercial premises.The intention of the design is to retain the same water in a system for an indefinite period which means that over the life of the system the water will degrade and so will the system. Without an effective water treatment programme corrosion products, foulants and slime forming bacteria can build up in the system. The components of the system will become blocked or decay resulting in a reduction in heat transfer issues and a lot of expense.

Regular closed system water treatment and management will prolong the life and increase efficiency of all plant, machinery/ distribution circulation.
