Boiler Water Oxygen Scavenger with DEHA – 6049 Bottle

Packaged in cases containing 4 x 5.5kg bottles.

Each case weighs 21.8kg.


Acepta 6049 is a high-performance, highly concentrated DEHA and neutralizing amine-based solid boiler water oxygen scavenger scientifically formulated for the treatment and protection of boiler systems from oxygen associated corrosion issues.

Acepta 6049 is a solid boiler water oxygen scavenger and neutralizing amine product and is based on diethylhydroxylamine (DEHA). It is designed to remove dissolved oxygen from boiler systems, whilst providing excellent metal passivation.

As a volatile organic, DEHA will also help to protect steam distribution systems from oxygen corrosion. In the presence of heat, a portion of Acepta 6049 breaks down to form neutralizing amines which help elevate the pH of the condensate system helping to protect it from carbonic acid attack. This process may reduce or even eliminate the need for additional neutralizing amine. DEHA does not add dissolved solids to the system.

Acepta 6049 is available in fully recyclable plastic bottles each containing 5.5kg of concentrated solid chemical.

Acepta 6049 is packaged in cases containing 4 x 5.5kg bottles.

Each case weighs 21.8kg.
