Boiler Water Treatment
Water treatment is a crucial part of boiler system maintenance. The purpose of water treatment is to reduce scaling in boilers and piping, optimize blow-down frequency, and prevent internal corrosion (Deaerator).
Blow-down is a part of the water treatment program. A boiler may have two types of blow-down:
- Continuous or Skim Blow - removes suspended solids in the water.
- Mud Blow - removes the sludge from the bottom of the boiler.
