Building a Briggs Steel Boiler - iForm

If no chemicals are used and the boiler is drained after each run, the solids are deposited on the horizontal surfaces of the boiler interior as the water level drops. The residual heat of the boiler cooks the solids on to the boiler surfaces and eventually builds up a crusty coating on the tubes etc. that will eventually reduce the heat transfer and reduce the boiler's efficiencey.

Boiler Chemicals - Oxygen, Scale, and pH Adjustments

There are two main groups of Chemicals for Boilers to choose from. One chemical group for boilers is for steam boilers and the second is for hot water boilers. Steam Boiler Chemicals - These include Oxygen Scavengers, Amines, Phosphates, Polymers, and Alkalinity Builders. Oxygen Scavengers - Most common type is 38%, pH < 4.

Pressure gauges are connected to the steam space of the boiler and usually have a ring type siphon tube which fills with condensed steam and protects the dial mechanism from high temperatures. Pressure gauges may be fitted to other pressure containers such as blowdown vessels, and will usually have smaller dials as shown in Figure 3.7.9.

Scaling in boilers - Lenntech

Scaling in boilers. Boilerscale is caused by impurities being precipitated out of the water directly on heat transfer surfaces or by suspended matter in water settling out on the metal and becoming hard and adherent. Evaporationin a boiler causes impurities to concentrate. This interferes with heat transfers and may cause hot spots.
