Utility Feed Water
A boiler is a crucial component of any plants operating process, 24 hours a day every day. The correct treatment of boiler feed water is fundamental to the efficient running of your site.
A plant that maintains good feed water quality achieves the following three benefits:
- Maximum life out of boilers, steam turbines, condensers, and pumps etc]
- Reduce maintenance expenses.
- Maintain optimal performance
As steam is produced dissolved solids become concentrated and form deposits inside the boiler. This leads to poor heat transfer and reduces the efficiency of the boiler. Dissolved gasses such as oxygen and carbon dioxide will react with the metals in the boiler system and lead to boiler corrosion. Controlling or removing these contaminants is fundamental in protecting the boiler.
Poor quality water will also affect the quality of the steam. In the event that the boiler system shuts down, most processes within the plant will not be operable. For this reason, proper treatment measures are essential for boiler feed water.
