BSRIA Closed System Water Analysis
It is important to regularly test your closed heating or cooling system for microbiological and chemistry levels to ensure the system is under good control to prevent run away bacterial growth and well protected from corrosion and scale with favourable chemistry showing sufficient chemical inhibitor levels such as Nitrite or Molybdate.
Feedwater Ltd are well placed to assist with Closed System protection as we have our own chemical production department, nationwide consultancy team and in-house water testing laboratories.
Our BSRIA closed system water testing analysis fully covers the standards outlined in BSRIA Closed Heating and Cooling System BG 50/2015 as highlighted in chapter 6.4: Management of the Water Treatment Program.
The typical testing frequency of a heating or cooling system after commission is 1-3 months although a more frequent testing regime may be desirable within the first 6 months of life.
