pH – Boiler and Condensate. pH is a measure of the acidity or basicity (alkalinity) of water on a scale running from 0 to 14. The neutral point on this scale is pH 7; values below 7 indicate increasing acidity and those from 7 to 14 indicate increasing basicity.

Controlling pH. pH is controlled by either removing water impurities or adding other chemicals to neutralize the condition. For example, Caustic Soda, an alkaline, is added to neutralize CO3, carbonic acid. pH Related Corrosion. Acid Attack. When the boiler water pH drops below about 8.5, a corrosion called acid attack can occur.
Boiler Water Treatment Chemical Guidelines—Part Il continued Because of the associated corrosion problems, chelants are not the preferred treatment choice. However, if the system dictates the use of chelating agents, it can feed under "starvation" conditions, i.e., no free residual in the boiler. Based on the trace level of hardness in the boiler
Controlling the PH of water is the first step towards boiler treatment. We all know that if PH is below 7 the solution is acidic and above 7 it’s alkaline. For boiler water PH is maintained between 11-11.8 and that of feed water between 7-9. Effects. If either of the values increases, water will accordingly become acidic or alkaline, leading

Tanis, Procedures of Industrial Water Treatment , Ltan Inc., 1987) W ith the heating season starting, it is only appropriate to discuss boiler inspections.
2015-1-9 · 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.
2020-3-7 · The suggested limits for spray water quality are ; 30 ppb (pg/l) TDS maximum, 1 0 ppb (pg/l) sodium as Na maximum, 20 ppb (pg/l) silica as Si02 maximum, and essentially oxygen free. (6) TDS expressed as ppm (mg/l) in steam is proportional to TDS expressed as specific conductivity in the boiler water in each pressure range.
