Closed System Water Treatment Chemicals & Service

closed system chemicalsFeedwater is a manufacturer and supplier of a range of high quality water treatment chemicals for all types of closed circuit heating, cooling and chilled water systems.

Closed circuit or closed loop water systems are a convenient way of heating or cooling building services applications and industrial and commercial processes. As the name closed loop suggests the intention is generally to retain the same water in the system for an indefinite period which means that without effective water treatment corrosion products and
foulants can build up impairing flow and heat transfer and control valves can become blocked and inoperative. Heating systems can become scaled up; chilled water systems can become choked with pseudomonas slime-forming bacteria. A poorly treated closed circuit water system will be wasting your money long before it starts to leak.
To overcome these many potential problems we have developed a comprehensive range of cost effective inhibitors and biocides which are designed specifically for closed systems. If your system is already suffering because of inadequate water treatment don’t despair because we can provide products and services which will restore flow and heat transfer to even heavily fouled systems.

Chemicals with Service

Any water treatment chemical is only as good as the service that accompanies it and we’ve been treating closed loop applications for over 35 years. So contact us today for all your service requirements and see how we can help you!

Closed System Corrosion Inhibitors

Closed circuit inhibitors are matched to the system metallurgy and operating temperature. Most of the inhibitors are designed to protect a range of different metals but particular care needs to be taken if a system contains aluminium.

Corroban 22 is a DEHA based oxygen scavenger which is used in the treatment of HTHW systems.

BuyOnlineButtonCorroban 40 is an industry standard nitrite based closed circuit corrosion inhibitor for LTHW and chilled water systems. Not suitable for systems containing aluminium. 

BuyOnlineButtonCorroban 41 is a new generation synergised nitrite closed system inhibitor which gives the same level of protection as traditional treatments but at a much lower dosage rate. It is ideal for MTHW, LTHW and chilled water systems. Not suitable for systems containing aluminium.

Corroban 42 is a special synergised nitrite treatment developed specifically for heating and chilled water systems containing aluminium.

Corroban 48P is a highly concentrated nitrite based chilled water corrosion inhibitor that can also be used for LTHW and other closed systems incorporating a pink pH indicator. Not suitable for systems containing aluminium.

BuyOnlineButtonCorroban 50 is a synergised molybdate / organic corrosion inhibitor which is ideal for MTHW, LTHW and chilled water systems, including those containing aluminium. Because it is a synergised blend it is able to provide excellent protection at much lower molybdate reserves and much lower cost than conventional molybdate treatments.

Corroban 55 is a synergised closed loop corrosion inhibitor which incorporates both nitrite and molybdate. It is ideal for MTHW, LTHW and chilled water systems. Not suitable for systems containing aluminium.

BuyOnlineButtonPolytan 4F is a tannin based oxygen scavenger and heating system corrosion inhibitor which is used in the treatment of larger, predominantly steel, systems which can be used across the temperature range from chilled water to HTHW systems.

Closed System Biocides

If untreated closed heating/cooling systems can become a breeding ground for a range of troublesome microbes such as pseudomonas, nitrifying and sulphate reducing bacteria. They can cause fouling, destroy closed loop inhibitors and cause MIC (microbially induced corrosion).

A chilled water biocide is essential to prevent slime growth and we would always recommend a closed circuit biocide is incorporated in any system operating below 80 °C.

BuyOnlineButtonBiocide ITA is a broad spectrum closed loop biocide which effectively controls all the commonly encountered bacteria in closed water systems.

*Use biocides safely. Always read the label and product information before use.*

Glycol Antifreezes

BuyOnlineButtonCorrofreeze is an inhibited mono ethylene glycol antifreeze designed specifically for use in chilled water systems in industrial and building services HVAC applications.

Corrofreeze BPC is food-grade and pharmaceutical grade propylene glycol.

BuyOnlineButtonCorroban 90 and 99 are food-grade inhibited propylene glycol antifreezes that can also be used as bacteriastats to safely control microbial growth in food production applications.

Closed Loop Cleaning Chemicals

We produce a range of heating system cleaning chemicals and closed system chemicals for pre-commission cleaning, descaling and renovation cleaning of all types of closed circuit water systems.

Chemical Reserves

This can very much depend on the exact blend that your supplier uses in their closed system inhibitor chemicals but we can give you an overview of what chemical reserves we recommend for Feedwater products.

All recommended reserves are stated on the product pages within the shop.

Molybdate Inhibitor (Corroban 50)

As a synergised Molybdate based inhibitor we have two different chemical reserves we recommend.
For systems without Aluminium we recommend a minimum of 33mg/l of Molybdate reserve
For systems with Aluminium where greater protection is needed we recommend minimum 66mg/l Molybdate reserve

Traditional Nitrite (Corroban 40)

A traditional Nitrite blend the chemical reserves we recommend comes down to one result as we do not recommend using with Aluminium systems. You should dose to meet a reserve of 1200mg/l minimum.

Synergised Nitrite (Corroban 41)

Our Synergised Nitrite blend has the benefit of requiring a much love nitrite reserve as the mix of organic and inorganic inhibitors offer protection at lower levels making it a much more cost effective solution. You should dose to meet a reserve of 200mg/l minimum.

Traditional Tannin (Polytan 4F)

Tannin again is not suitable for Aluminium and lends it self to be a cost effective solution to very large and high pressured closed systems. The operator should look for a chemical reserve within the range of 12 – 20 tannin units.

Further information regarding chemical reserves, what systems and materials are compatible with which treatments are available on the product pages.
