Selecting the Right Metering Pump for Boiler-Water Treatments

by PSG | Nov 02, 2021
Pumps & Systems

The function of a boiler is simple. It boils water to produce steam, which in turn provides energy. While this is a straightforward process, there are complexities within it that could affect the boiler’s integrity. The primary concern is the quality of the water.

It might not seem like it, but even high-quality water contains impurities, which has the potential to create problems for the boiler’s functionality. Over time, chemical impurities in the water could damage a boiler’s internals, leaving solid deposits, such as corrosion, rust or scale as the steam evaporates. These accumulated deposits could eventually thermally insulate the boiler’s heat-exchanger surfaces, reducing the boiler’s rate of steam generation and may eventually cause the equipment’s metals to fail. Without proper treatment, corrosion, rust and scale may eventually lead to thermal failure, reduced boiler efficiency and a potential boiler failure.

The boiler is not the only thing that may be affected by untreated feedwater. Aside from the boiler internals, the corresponding safety equipment and auxiliary piping may also suffer the effects of water chemicals and impurities. Addressing the quality of the feedwater becomes imperative. Otherwise, the damage to the boiler and associated equipment may shorten its longevity and increase capital expenditures.

A boiler-water treatment plan is recommended to keep a boiler operating efficiently. Boiler-water treatments neutralize or remove impurities and chemicals in feedwater to help ensure effective functionality and longevity.
