DEGASIFICATION

The process of removing dissolved gasses from water, using vacuum or heat. Degasification is utilized for several reasons that are not all associated with water treatment. Some forms of degasification are required for the production of cosmetics, medicines, and chemicals. However, water is by far the most common application needed for degasification. Dissolved gases such as carbon dioxide must be eliminated from water before it is able to produce steam. This process is required to do before the water is poured into the boiler system in order to save it from unwanted scaling or corrosive effects. As carbon dioxide remains in the water it has the ability to create steam carbonic acids that can result in corrosion and lower the performance, which reduces the lifespan of the tools needed to generate the steam. As the water is being purified for consumption, it is also simultaneously degasified to eliminate carbon dioxide and other dissolved gases such as hydrogen sulfide or what is generally alluded to consumer’s “rotten egg gas”.
