Boiler Treatment Product Receives FDA Approval

Sept. 10, 2015
The technology was approved as a secondary direct food additive for use across regulated industries where steam comes in contact with food products

GE announced that its Solus AP boiler treatment product has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval as a secondary direct food additive for use across regulated industries where steam comes in contact with food products.

Solus AP is an all-polymer technology designed to meet the deposit control performance needs of modern low-to-intermediate pressure steam boilers (up to 900 psig) and is a cost-effective, easy-to-use treatment in a stable, liquid formulation. By improving the control of iron and hardness deposits in steam boilers, the technology helps plant operators achieve design fuel efficiency, boiler safety and reliability, and lowers maintenance costs by preventing deposit-related failures. It is easy to apply and control and has a favorable safety and environmental profile versus traditional boiler treatments.

With the recent FDA approval, GE can expand the use of Solus AP to new prospective markets such as food and beverage producers, universities, government facilities, light industrial manufacturers, pharmaceutical companies and healthcare providers.
