STEAM LINE TREATMENT
DAVIES “NO-PIT” is specially designed to protect steam condensate return lines from corrosion. The way “NO-PIT” protects boiler systems is by completely neutralizing acids that occur in return lines. These acids actually dissolve metal! High temperatures and pressures in the boiler cause water minerals to form carbon dioxide (CO2) which forms acids in contact with steam condensate. These acids are highly corrosive and cause widespread damage in untreated boiler systems. Properly used, “NO-PIT” will neutralize these acids and protect the steam condensate lines, tanks, pumps, etc…
“NO-PIT”is best used with close return line testing; sufficient “NO-PIT” should be added to bring the PH of the return line to 7.5 to 8.0. Any pH reading lower than 7.0 is acidic and will be corrosive. Approximately one “1” quart per 1000 gallons of boiler water is the recommended starting treatment. Quantity and frequency (generally weekly) of treatment will be dependent on the return line pH test.
