ICOM launch Water Treatment and Conditioning of Commercial Heating Systems Guide

06 April 2017

The Industrial and Commercial Energy Association (ICOM) have published their new Commercial Water Treatment Guide, in response to industry concerns of poor water treatment and conditioning in commercial heating systems.

Ross Anderson, Director, ICOM said; “The consequences of inappropriate or non-existent water treatment can prove costly to rectify.

"The treatment of water in closed and open heating systems is essential for the avoidance of fouling, biofouling, corrosion and scale. These problems can result in energy wastage, poor system performance and the need for early replacement of heating system components.

"Any installation must be thoroughly flushed and cleaned before it can be filled and used. ICOM’s comprehensive guide deals with all aspects of water treatment for commercial heating systems.

"It is aimed as a document that can be read and understood by plant operators, engineers and personnel with limited or no knowledge of water treatment chemistry.

"It is also intended to help them understand what effect any water and its subsequent treatment will have on their heating system.

"By studying the contents and following the freely given advice, heating systems will operate trouble free, safely and more efficiently.”

The guide was officially launched on 28th March 2017 at Future Cities Catapult, Urban Innovation Centre, London.
