The primary aim of this paper is to point out the need for proper water treatment for boiler and refrigeration equipment in the citrus industry. Generally speaking, the treatment that applies in this industry will apply in any other industry as well. However, since many packing and processing plants in Florida have grown up practically overnight, the production end of the operation has been stressed but some of the basic needs have been by-passed because there has, at times, been a lack of capital. At other times speed was an essential and some of the fundamentals of good operation were forgotten.
