At Comfort Services Group, our dedicated engineers provide effective water treatment solutions for closed loop systems.
Using the latest techniques, tools and technology available, our team are on hand to deliver cost effective water treatments designed to improve your systems performance, reduce maintenance costs and keep it operating safely.
What Is A Closed Loop Water System?
Closed loop water systems are in simple terms, a closed circuit or loop of pipework that is designed to enable water to be circulated for cooling or heating purposes across domestic, commercial and industrial premises.
Because of the way they are designed the intention is for the same water to be retained in the system for long term periods, if not indefinitely.
Why Does The Water Need Treating?
Because the same water is circulated withing the system, over time without regular treatments, it will degrade and so will the system.
If at any point the systems requires a ‘top up’ of water this can also potentially affect the system with foulants, corrosion products and microbiological contaminants being introduced via oxygenated makeup water.
The inhibitor chemicals which serve as corrosion protection products degrade and dissolve into the system
over time so they will also need monitoring at regular intervals (ie: quarterly) to ensure the minimum control level is maintained.
Without an effective water treatment program in place the build-up of contaminants over time can lead to blocked and decayed components, systems full of scale and diminished heat flow. This not only affects the efficiency of the system which costs more money, but the degrading of vital components will inevitably end up costing even more in replacements parts and repairs.
