The events of the recent months have reminded us of the importance of having effective preservation solutions on hand for boiler layup. Commercial, industrial, and institutional facilities around the world were suddenly forced to shutter operations as a response to the efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19. This left many facilities, such as shopping malls, with the challenge of preserving boilers and other equipment that normally never shut down. Even those facilities experienced with seasonal layup of heating equipment had to start their preservation programs earlier than usual.
Fortunately, Cortec’s boiler layup products have provided a simple and effective solution for boiler operators who want to look forward to an easy startup. The Boiler Lizard®, Boiler Gecko™, Boiler Dragon™, and the Boiler Egg™ are all easy to apply (no quick lime or silica gel needed) to drained boilers of various sizes. They provide protection against corrosion during the layup period (or in the case of the Boiler Egg™, during the critical startup phase) helping operators avoid resultant leakage, blockage, and repair headaches. To streamline the process even further, these products typically do not even need to be removed at startup.
