Following evaporation of water into steam, many of the impurities (TDS – Total Dissolved Solids) in the water are left behind. These can cause foaming that can lead to carryover of water into the steam system and damage to boiler heating surfaces.
Accurate control of TDS is important because:”
- High TDS results in plant & production problems
- Low TDS results in increased fuel & chemical treatment costs
Accurate blowdown methods are essential maintain your steam quality, contact our engineers for advice on the best methods for your business.
