Abstract:

To develop technology delivery methods, surveys of the water handling facilities at Chanute AFB and Scott AFB were conducted with the purpose of recognizing water-caused problems and presenting means of reducing these problems, particularly corrosion. Recommendations, purchase and installation of necessary water treating and water testing equipment were provided. Water treating chemicals were also purchased for application to reduce scale and corrosion. Base personnel were then trained in water treatment testing and control with the result that water-caused problems in boilers, return condensate, cooling towers and potable water systems were significantly reduced at Chanute AFB. At Scott AFB, the equipment was installed and chemicals supplied however evaluation of the results were incomplete because equipment was installed at such a late date. Consideration was given to the problems involved in setting up effective water treatment programs at other Air Force bases.
