21/03/2017 · Examples of components that may be subject to fouling and the corresponding effects of fouling Heat exchanger surfaces reduces thermal efficiency, increases temperature on the hot side, decreases temperature on the cold side, corrosion, increases use of cooling water; Piping, flow channels reduces flow, increases pressure drop, increases energy
01/06/2015 · Typical Causes of Slagging and Fouling Problems in Boilers 1. The line of demarcation. The tube spacing of all boilers becomes progressively more restrictive as the heat transfer 2. Location, location, location. Furnace oxygen content instrument
Causes: Tube damage occurs due to the combination of thermal fatigue and corrosion. Corrosion fatigue is influenced by boiler design, water chemistry, boiler water oxygen content, and boiler operation. A combination of these effects leads to the breakdown of the protective magnetite on the ID surface of the boiler
01/06/2017 · Compounded oils may cause foaming of the boiler water. The impure steam resulting from such boiler water may foul superheater tubes, turbine blades, clog lines, and traps; it could also foul
Common Boiler Feedwater Treatment Issues and How to Avoid Them
The Effects of High Conductivity in Boiler Water Treatment
25/09/2015 · This chapter discusses basic water chemistry, the consequences of poor chemistry control in a steam system, and the various methods of control available today. Any boiler water treatment program must control the three adverse conditions: scaling, fouling, and corrosion.
02/09/2019 · The presence of high boiler water solids creates foaming, which reduces the efficacy of the boiler. High levels of salts, heavy metals, and other substances in water can be somewhat toxic to a persons health if consumed in high amounts.
