JJM Boiler Works Condensate Boiler Neutralizing Tubes
The pH measurement of a fluid is an indicator of the acidity or alkalinity. Neutral fluids have pH of 7.0. Acid fluids have pH below 7. And alkaline fluids have pH above 7 (up to 14). The pH can be easily measured using litmus paper.
Condensate pH from condensing boilers and furnaces is acidic. The condensate pH needs to be increased (made less acidic) to prevent possible damage to cast iron soil pipe, ABS pipe, septic tanks, plants, wastewater treatment plants and other materials handling waste water.
JM-series condensate neutralizing tubes increase pH and reduce acidity. Each increase of 1.0 in pH is a 10-times decrease in acidity. The pH of condensate is increased by approximately 1.0 to 3.0 after passing through NB neutralizing tanks. (This is a reduction in acid concentration of from 10 to 1000 times.)
