BCI-L20C Liquid


BCI-L20-C is a unique and specialized alkaline sulphite based oxygen scavenger for use in steam generating systems, It is available in a liquid and in a solid form (BCI-S100-C) and contains an internal indicator and hardness management compound in its neat form to confirm that the product is suitably alkaline and will not deplete valuable hydroxyl alkalinity needed to be maintained in low and medium pressure steam generation systems for internal silica control.

BCI-L20-C is nominally controlled at between 15-30mg/l in the boiler as the sodium sulphite compound in the boiler circuit water. These dosages should be altered dependent upon dissolved oxygen content in the feed water.

mg/l BCI-L20-C to boiler feed water = 5 x [ (Oxygen in Feed Water x 8) + (Residual
Required/Effective Cycles of Concentration.)]

There is a specific test method for the determination of the residual BCI-L20-C. This is a titrimetric method and is immediately available.

BCI-L20-C is also available as a spray dried powder – BCI-S100-C and can be diluted at 20% m/m. The dosages and residuals can be controlled exactly as described above.

Innovation: It’s part of our DNA

Large enough to deliver. Small enough to care.

Innovation is everywhere at Blue Reef. For example, the chemical products which we have produced for the anti-scalent market are unique in every way. Our “HEXAMER” based products are formulated and manufactured employing processes previously never used in the manufacture of water treatment products.
Not only does this make the products far more stable than traditional inhibitors, but one is able to actually test for the active aspect in the product. This takes scale inhibition and scale removal to a new level in that chemical dosing rates can be calculated very accurately resulting in cost savings and increased efficacy.

A further innovation is that all of our products are available in liquid and dehydrated powder form. These dry products are unique. All that one has to do to produce a liquid version of the same product is to “JUST ADD WATER” and mix.

This makes for transportation of product over long distance/over border logistics extremely easy as packing for transportation is far easier and so much safer.
