Boiler Water Treatment Technology

<< Back to Course Catalogue

After participating in this seminar you will be able to:

  • Apply your knowledge of different boiler chemical treatment technologies to determine whether you are employing best practices in your boiler system and protecting critical assets
  • Justify the importance of well-designed and operated pre-treatment systems upstream of your boiler plant to increase plant reliability and lower operating costs
  • Interpret industry-wide guidelines and monitor key performance indicators in pre-boiler, boiler and post-boiler systems
  • Determine boiler cycles of concentration and improve chemical management
  • Recognize ways to troubleshoot boiler feedwater, boiler and steam purity problems, and identify invaluable insights on how to design for success in new boiler plant projects

For boilers to operate efficiently, they require a high quality feed water and the maintenance of proper water chemistry in the boiler. The steam needs to meet certain purity guidelines appropriate for the end use. Water chemistry & chemical treatment play a critical role in achieving all of the above objectives.

A good understanding of both is essential to troubleshoot operational problems, optimise boiler plant operations, and evaluate competitive bids of chemical water treatment. There are regulatory, health & safety and environmental factors that play a role in selecting the best chemical treatment for the boiler. With applicability to most types of boilers, this course is practically oriented but grounded on solid theoretical foundations of boiler cycle chemistry and industrial water chemistry.
