Boiler Water Treatment Chemical Guidelines—Part Il continued Because of the associated corrosion problems, chelants are not the preferred treatment choice. However, if the system dictates the use of chelating agents, it can feed under "starvation" conditions, i.e., no free residual in the boiler. Based on the trace level of hardness in the boiler
Boiler Water Quality Boiler Chemicals are used to ensure proper Boiler Water Quality in boilers. The below table is the Total Dissolved Solids or TDS, Alkalinity, and Hardness versus Boiler Pressure. First, knowing the water source is important, whether it is from ponds, rivers, ground wells, or city water.

The quality of raw water is obviously an important factor when choosing a water treatment plant. Although TDS levels will affect the performance of the boiler operation, other issues, such as total alkalinity or silica content can sometimes be more important and then dominate the selection process for water treatment equipment.
Since water impurities cause boiler problems, careful consideration must be given to the quality of the water used for generating steam. The composition of boiler feed water must be such that the impurities in it can be concentrated a reasonable number of times inside the boiler, without exceeding the tolerance limits of the particular boiler
The following are specified limit for high pressure boiler from different organization:- ASME Guidelines for Water Quality in Modern Industrial Water Tube Boilers for Reliable Continuous Operation:-Boiler Feed Water Boiler Water Drum Pressure (psi) Iron (ppm Fe) Copper (ppm Cu) Total Hardness (ppm CaCO3) Silica (ppm SiO 2) Total Alkalinity**
Verify that the water treatment system is operating properly, producing boiler feedwater of sufficiently high quality for the operating temperatures and pressures involved. Although zero hardness is always an absolute criteria, other water quality standards based on operating pressures and temperatures as recommended by ABMA should be followed.
Water Quality is important to the proper operation of the boiler. The following information on water quality provided in this document must be followed. Damage caused by failure to follow these requirements may not be covered by the manufacturer’s warranty.
Poor water quality was the cause. Water treatment is especially important when matching a new condensing boiler to old gravity systems with massive cast iron radiators and large steel mains. Iron oxide, sludge, sediment and other dissolved contaminants in the system water come out of solution at the hottest part of the system: the heat exchanger.
Standards of water quality (Babbitt et al, 1962) can be divided into three types: For water of exceptionally great natural purity. For pure waters from a restricted area, and. For limits of matters permitted in water. National and International Water Quality Standards; Several water quality standards were established and implemented.
