This company’s Solus AP boiler-treatment solution has recently received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Admin. (FDA) for use across regulated industries where steam comes into contact with food products. Solus AP is an all-polymer technology in a stable, liquid formulation designed to meet the deposit-control needs of low- to intermediate-pressure steam boilers (up to 900 psig). By improving the control of iron and hardness deposits, steam boilers that have been treated with Solus AP (photo) help plant operators achieve design fuel efficiency, as well as higher levels of safety and reliability by preventing deposit-related failures, according to the manufacturer. With the recent FDA approval, the use of Solus AP can be expanded into food and beverage, pharmaceutical and healthcare applications. — GE Power & Water, Schenectady, N.Y.
