Typically, as boiler operating pressure increases so does the need for higher purity water. At the same time, water treaters need to maintain a minimum level of OH alkalinity (generally, over 150 ppm as CaCO 3 ) to prevent scaling tendencies while ensuring excess alkalinity doesn't interfere with other chemical treatment components.Get A Quote
Alkalinity The alkalinity of boiler water should be sufficiently high enough to protect shell and plates against acidic corrosion, but not high enough to produce carryover. A minimum value for alkalinity for adequate protection is 200 PPM. High boiler alkalinity, which is in excess of 700 PPM, should be avoided.Get A Quote
May 04, 2021 · The level is determined by the pressure and type of boiler. Refer to the dosage table below for correct dose rates. The normal method of raising the alkalinity level is by adding the required quantity of NALFLEET™ Alkalinity Control after testing for p-Alkalinity. 225 ml/ton will raise the p-Alkalinity by 100 ppm. USING THE TABLE: Select the section corresponding to the pressure of the boiler to be …Get A Quote

Foaming and Carryover are caused due to high dissolved solid and caustic alkalinity in combination with leakages, load changes and organic matter ( oil). Control of boiler-water chemistry, before and after the water enters the steam generating system, is vital to efficient operation, acceptable maintenance costs, and satisfactory equipmentGet A Quote
The alkalinity test has been used as a supplementary blowdown control for systems in which boiler water alkalinity can be particularly high. Total Solids From a technical standpoint, gravimetric measurement provides a satisfactory way to determine boiler water total solids; however, this method is rarely used because the analysis is time-consuming and is too difficult for routine control.Get A Quote
You must maintain a Total OH alkalinity ratio of 3:1 in high pressure boilers to prevent plating of silica. Alkalinity is a measure of the capacity of water to neutralize strong acids. Alkalinity also increase the water pH to reduce the overall corrosion rates on steel and …Get A Quote
