Tensamin CH6 is a preparation for specialized use in the power industry. It is used as a de-oxidant in high-pressure boilers, tanks and condensate circuits. The alkaline environment used in most water-steam circuits does not fully eliminate the problem of corrosion. Even small amounts of oxygen (dissolved oxygen, DO2) at elevated temperatures significantly accelerate this process. Tensamin CH6 eliminates oxygen residues that are not removed in any other way.
The active substance of the product is carbohydrazide, which captures and binds oxygen dissolved in the circulating system. It is an effective alternative to hydrazine – a commonly used hazardous substance that brings technological problems with itself. It is related to storage and safe dosing due to the fact that it is an explosive substance.
At room temperature the product is stable and its dosing is extremely easy. Tensamin CH6 forms a passive oxide film (magnetite) with existing corrosion centres. Protects the surface against further oxidative degradation. In addition, the product does not leave solid deposits after application and does not decompose to acidic organic compounds that may induce corrosion centres. The product contains 6% of the active substance and is mixed with water in any proportion.
