The Importance of Boiler Water and Steam Chemistry

The Importance of Boiler Water and Steam Chemistry. Steam Purity. Purity or chemistry requirements for steam can be as simple as a specified maximum moisture content, or can include maximum concentrations for a variety of chemical species. Often, for low pressure building or process heater steam, only a maximum moisture content is specified.

Boiler Water - an overview | ScienceDirect Topics

Boiler water treatment is done to minimize corrosion, deposition, scale, and carryover in the water–steam circuits. The aim is to maximize the reliability of the steam–water circuit. Boiler water treatment has basically two phases: First, we remove impurities from the water to the desired cleanliness.

Boiler Water Quality

Always use a softener to ensure good Boiler Water Quality. Chemicals are designed to polish away small amounts of hardness that by-passes the softener. Silica in boiler feedwater can be a problem in larger steam boiler systems. You must maintain a Total OH alkalinity ratio of 3:1 in high pressure boilers to prevent plating of silica.

BASIC WATER TREATMENT OF STEAM BOILERS

Water-tube boilers have a limited water surface area in the steam drum, relative to the evaporation rate. This results in very high steam release rates per unit of water area, and turbulence. Water-tube boilers tend to be higher rated, perhaps over 1 000 tonnes/h of steam.

Boiler feedwater heaters are designed to improve boiler efficiency by extracting heat from streams such as boiler water blowdown and turbine extraction or excess exhaust steam. Feedwater heaters are generally classified as low-pressure (ahead of the deaerator), high-pressure (after the deaerator), or deaerating heaters.

Boiler – Fundamentals and Best Practices

Steam Production When heat is added to water, its temperature rises at a rate of 0.56 C (1 F) for each heat input of 2.095 kJ/kg (1 Btu/lb) If we take water at 0 C (32 F) and we add 419 kJ/kg (180 Btu/lb) then we will increase the temperature of the water by 100 C

In a well maintained, properly operating boiler system, condensate is almost pure water with low conductivity and minimal dissolved solids. Condensate contamination can be caused by heat exchanger leaks, boiler carryover, etc. and can be a perplexing problem. If approached logically, the source of contamination can be found out.
