  • Common Boiler Feed Water Treatment Issues and How to Avoid Them

    When treating boiler feed water (the combination of boiler makeup and condensate return water), several issues can arise that cause boiler scaling, corrosion, fouling, and system failure. Below, we break down the most common boiler feed water issues and how to avoid them to help ensure system efficiency and operational safety. While treating boiler feed water is extremely ...

  • Real Time TOC Analysis in Steam and Condensate

    Executive Summary Steam in petro/chemical plants could be contaminated with hydrocarbons (TOC = Total Organic Carbons) from various sources. In any case this is a sign for defects in the process, whether it they occur in the heat exchanger, the blow down vessel, the condensate recovery or other parts of the system. Conventional solutions to monitor such contaminations use TOC- ...

  • Application notes: The Sievers InnovOx TOC analyzer: boiler water monitoring

    Background A boiler system is a semi-closed loop system in which water is heated and converted into steam to power a generator. The steam is then allowed to form a condensate and the process is repeated. Boiler water chemistry directly impacts boiler efficiency and fuel use. Improper water treatment allows scale formation and corrosion. Boiler scale and deposits form when impurities ...

  • Saving waste in the boiler house

    Burner technology has improved greatly in recent years. Older Burners had a series of cams and levers that were calibrated to provide specific amounts of air for a particular rate of firing. Being mechanical items, these wore and sometimes required calibration. They, therefore, had to be regularly serviced and calibrated. Generally, new burners use frequency controlled motors and cams to open air ...

  • Boiler Dissolved Oxygen Control

    DISSOLVED OXYGEN CHEMISTRY Dissolved Oxygen (DO) is a measure of the amount of oxygen, usually thought of as a gas, that is dissolved in a liquid such as water. Oxygen is essential to life and is also the most common element found taking part in corrosion reactions. DO can be thought of as the fuel needed for the corrosion process to proceed. It is the corrosion reactions that necessitate ...

  • Hydrocarbon in Water Monitors using Fluorescence

    Hydrocarbon in Water Monitors using Fluorescence are capable of detecting hydrocarbons as low as 5 Parts per Billion and as high as 10,000 Parts per Million depending on the application.  Because only the target hydrocarbons will fluoresce, these monitors have no significant affect due to water turbidity (rust, dirt, gas bubbles, soot, etc.).  Fluorescence monitors provide a measurement ...

  • Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) Measurement

    Definition Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) is a measure of the sum of all inorganic and organic substances in a liquid in molecular, ionized or micro-granular colloidal suspended form. The solids must be small enough to survive filtration through a sieve the size of two micrometer.  TDS solids are normally found in all freshwater systems. Major applications of TDS are: at low levels the ...

  • Ethanol by-product raises biogas output

    In 2007, the City of Fergus Falls, Minnesota undertook a study to evaluate adding thick corn stillage to the anaerobic digesters at its wastewater treatment plant (WWTP). The goal was to determine the potential for codigesting syrup with biosolids to increase biogas production, while avoiding operational and regulatory problems. The Fergus Falls WWTP operates three digesters in series, two ...
