boiler water, calcium will preferentially precipitate as the phosphate before pre- cipitating as the carbonate, and calcium phosphate becomes the most prominent feature of the deposit.
Feed Water Treatment to Avoid Corrosion - Make-up water to steam boilers should be treated with oxygen scavengers to avoid serious corrosion problems; Maximum Flow Velocity in Water Systems - Water velocities in pipes and tubes should not exceed certain limits; Steam Boiler Rating and Feed Water Temperature - Boiler output and feed water

eventually scale, which deposits on the internal surfaces of the boiler. The result: a serious loss of boiler efficiency, and possibly boiler failure. Scale is a buildup of solid material formed on internal boiler surfaces when the concentration of impurities in the boiler water exceeds their solubility limit and precipitation occurs.
Boiler Water Quality Boiler Chemicals are used to ensure proper Boiler Water Quality in boilers. The below table is the Total Dissolved Solids or TDS, Alkalinity, and Hardness versus Boiler Pressure. First, knowing the water source is important, whether it is from ponds, rivers, ground wells, or city water.
The purity requirements for any feed-water depend on how much feed water is used as well as what the particular boiler design (pressure, heat transfer rate, etc.) can tolerate. Feed-water purity requirements therefore can vary widely. A low-pressure fire-tube boiler can usually tolerate high feed-water hardness with proper treatment while virtually all impurities must be removed from water used in some modern, high-pressure boilers.

Boiler Feed Water. Boiler feed water is used to produce steam. The pressure of the steam (0,5 - 100 bar) determines the temperature and energy capacity, but also the quality of the feed water. The general rule is the higher the pressure the more strict the quality of the boiler feed water. Important parameters of the feed water …
With a boiler operating under constant load and within its design parameters, the amount of entrained moisture carried over with steam may be less than 2%. If load changes are rapid and of large magnitude, the pressure in the boiler can drop considerably, initiating extremely turbulent conditions as the contents of the boiler flash to steam.
The Importance of Boiler Water and Steam Chemistry
pitting can result with possible rupture of boiler condensate piping or boiler tubes. 3.3.4 Rusty water in the boiler gage glass is a sure sign of acid corrosion in the boiler feedwater/condesate system or in the boiler itself. 3.3.5 Make-up water is the major source of carbon dioxide. The first priority is to minimize the amount of make-up water.
Note 1 - Recovery Boilers - The boiler feed water used shall be completely de-mineralized and also the boiler feed water and boiler water shall be conditioned in accordance with high pressure boilers working at 60 kg/cm2 and above (see IS : 4343-1967**)
May 02, 2000 · parameters for the program. The impurities found in the makeup water will build up in the boiler as the water turns to steam leaving most impurities behind. There are known maximum limits for these impurities, which can and will be surpassed without proper blow down. The maximum
Requirements for boiler feed water design and requirements include maximum tolerance levels of alkali, salt, silica, phosphates and other elements.
Use proper water treatment to prevent the buildup of scale on the boiler. After scale has built up on the walls of the boiler it is almost impossible to remove it from the boiler. The introduction of acids in the pressure vessel is thoroughly discouraged, since virtually any solution that will chemically attack the scale will also attack the boiler metal.
The difference between 140°F and 180°F in boiler feed water temperature equates to about a 3-4% difference in boiler efficiency. Feed water preheating typically occurs in either the feedwater tank or deaerator using supplementary steam. Pre-heating the feedwater is the most basic method of mechanical deaeration, or the process of removing
Feedwater chemistry parameters to be controlled include dissolved solids, pH, dissolved oxygen, hardness, suspended solids, total organic carbon (TOC), oil, chlorides, sulfides, alkalinity, and acid- or base-forming tendencies.
temperature is held above 190° F there is a potential for feed water pump cavitation. – Temperature gauges fail, so holding the tank at 200ºF. – When the feed water pump comes on, the boiling point of water is reduced – Deareators use head pressure (1 psi for every 2.3 feet of height
CONTROL OF BOILER WATER PARAMETERS The most important parameters to control in boiler applications are conductivity and pH. These are measured in different streams from boiler feed water to boiler water to condensate return.
