The alkalinity of boiler water should be sufficiently high enough to protect shell and plates against acidic corrosion, but not high enough to produce carryover. A minimum value for alkalinity for adequate protection is 200 PPM. High boiler alkalinity, which is in excess of 700 PPM, should be avoided. Values higher than this can lead to embrittlement of the steel. Phosphates. Phosphates are used to react with calcium hardness in the boiler water.

An Introduction to Treatment of Steam Boiler Water
Boiler – Fundamentals and Best Practices
boiler water treatment may be added (fed) to the water in the steam drum. A process of either continuous or intermittent surface blowdown is used to maintain the TDS of the boiler water and achieve the optimal operating conditions in the boiler. In some boiler systems, the blowdown water will be discharged to a flash tank, where a lower
include information on makeup water treatment, condensate and feedwater treatment, boiler water treatment, steam purity, preventive maintenance, personnel training, and chemical cleaning of boilers. Objectives of the Treatment Program This conference demonstrates that there are many areas of the Kraft Recovery Boiler cycle that demand your attention. Water treatment is no exception. The primary …
Establishing a boiler water treatment plan will provide you with real-time feedback of your boiler system so you can get ahead of any issues that might occur as a result of poor water quality. We broke down the boiler water treatment process into three simple steps that you can incorporate into your preventative maintenance practices. 1.
Pre-boiler SectionThe preboiler section of a steam boiler comprises of the boiler system's structural components that hold, move and treat the water before the water enters the boiler. The preboiler system components include water treatment system, feed water pre-heater, deaerator to remove dissolved oxygen (and other noncondensable gases
a system with water and heat will initiate corrosion. • Heat, found in the feed water system, is a driving force for corrosion • Mechanical deaeration, can remove most, but not all of the oxygen from the water. • An oxygen scavenger is used to eliminate the remaining oxygen. • Properly applied, oxygen scavengers will prevent oxygen pitting
