CMC 2173 O2 Scavenger SMBS

Product description

CMC 2173 is a high performance liquid catalyzed oxygen scavenger designed to scavenge oxygen and hence inhibit oxidative pitting corrosion within steam boilers.


  • CMC 2173 will efficiently scavenge oxygen and hence inhibit oxidative pitting corrosion within pressure up to 650 psi industrial boiler systems.
  • CMC 2173 is used to remove dissolved oxygen from boiler, closed loop, and other industrial waters. It is designed for use in many types steam or hot water boiler systems.

Great Value benefits

  • CMC 2173 High performance oxygen scavenger giving outstanding protection from oxygen corrosion.
  • CMC 2173 Excellent inhibition of oxidative pitting corrosion.
  • CMC 2173 Convenient liquid product.

Recommended Use Directions

CMC 2173 standard dose is 0.08 % – 0.12 % of feed water.
CMC 2173 must be dosed according to the analysis of feed water, and the planet condition the dosage is controlled proportionally to the concentration of dissolved oxygen present in the feed water.

If you have feed water 10000 L and analysis of dissolve oxygen is 8 ppm use 4 liter from CMC 2173.
Approximately each 1 ppm dissolve oxygen needs 100 ml CMC 2170 per 1000 liters of feed water
