There are several problems which can occur within a boiler system. The major problems are; scale and sludge deposition, corrosion and boiler water carryover. If left untreated these problems can in extreme cases cause steam boilers to explode and it is for this reason that standards have arisen on how to treat and maintain boiler systems. This course specifies the chemical conditions required to be maintained in the boiler water to avoid scale and corrosion and to ensure that the steam produced is pure and dry.
This 3-hr course material is based entirely on the US Army Corps of Engineers document TM 5-650 " Central Boiler Plants" and covers Chapter 4; "Water Treatment for Boiler Plants”.
The course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
