Treatment of the Heating /Cooling System Water at Robin Hood Airport

The Site Services Department at Robin Hood Airport contacted Scalemaster® for advice following failure of the heating/cooling system in the Terminal Building.  The primary heat-exchanger had cracked through freezing in the cold weather following loss of the anti-freeze working fluid and automatic replenishment with mains water.  Upon replacement of the heat-exchanger, Scalemaster® helped source 5000 litres of pre-mixed water/glycol and supplied 60 litres of its Scalemaster® Gold 100-I inhibitor to protect the system against scale and corrosion.

“Choosing the Scalemaster® 100-I Commercial Inhibitor was the best decision we made.  We had to gain access to the system at elevated height and, as the product comes in 5 litre Jerry Cans (each sufficient to treat 2,000 litres of system water), this made filling the system easy” says Mr. Shaw – Site Services Co-ordinator

Scalemaster® is currently providing ongoing maintenance in the form of regular monitoring of the concentration of the inhibitor in the water via its Heating System Water Quality Health Check Service.
