Boiler House Energy Savings from Crane Environmental 

Reverse Osmosis (RO) Crane ROsystems help reduce the fouling of the interior boiler surfaces. The accumulation of suspended and dissolved solids, usually in some form of carbonate, greatly reduces boiler efficiency by effectively insulating boiler tubes and retarding heat transfer. RO systems may reduce total dissolved solids (TDS) levels to just a few parts per million (ppm) or less. This improves boiler efficiency, and also decreases the amount of maintenance required to operate the boiler, especially the reduction in blow-down cycles required to clean out precipitates in the boiler.

Please see for more info on boiler applications and (Hyperfiltration).aspx dearatorfor details on Reverse Osmosis

Crane Environmental is also the number one name in Deaerators.

Sold under the Cochrane or Chicago Heater trade names in the past, Crane has all the records, spare parts and upgrades available. Please see for more information.

The "Replacement"

: We were contacted by a customer who said their cooling water pumps were not performing well and wanted to replace them with more reliable pumps.

They gave us the name plate data and asked us to supply new pumps for the same conditions. Being young and dumb, we did just that.
