  • Caustic corrosion in boilers - Lenntech

    Caustic corrosion in boilers. Concentration of caustic (NaOH) can occur as a result of steam blanketing (which allow salts to concentrate on boiler metal surface) or by localized boiling beneath porous deposits on tube surface. Caustic corrosion occurs when caustic is concentrated and dissolves the protective magnetite (Fe 3 O 4) layer, causing Learn More

  • Corrosivity of water and saturation indices

    The factors of scaling and corrosivity are not inversely related. There are, or can be causal relations between corrosivity and scaling for a given water, or even in general. But it is also true that there can be waters which are very non-scaling but also non-corrosive. For example, deionized water that is purged of oxygen, i.e. boiler feedwater.Learn More

  • CORROSION-PRODUCT TRANSPORT, OXIDATION STATE AND …

    hydrazine. Hydrazine is a strong reducing agent at FW and boiler temperatures, especially in the pH range 9 to 10.5. Typically, in CANDU reactors, hydrazine is added between the deaerator (DA) and the DA storage tank, to control FW oxygen. The thermal decomposition of hydrazine generates ammonia, which helps sustain a high pH.Learn More

  • What is the reason for keeping a boiler feed water pH

    Jun 12, 2018 · For typical steel/iron/cast iron, when the pH is less than about 4, protective oxide films tend to dissolve and corrosion rates increase. When the pH is between about 4 and 10, soil corrosion is independent of pH. When the pH is greater than 10, the metal becomes passive and corrosion rates decrease with increasing pH.Learn More

  • Pitting Corrosion of Copper in Waters with High pH and Low

    Feb 10, 2011 · Corrosion in boilers is often due to an incorrect pH setting. Both an excessively high and an excessively low pH may be the source of the problem. In boilers, caustic corrosion is above all a consequence of extreme concentration of the boiler water underneath scale deposits or in crevices. Initially, the protective magnetite skin dissolves as followsLearn More

  • Dissolved oxygen corrosion

    In modern boiler systems, dissolved oxygen is handled by first mechanically removing most of the dissolved oxygen and then chemically scavenging the remainder. The mechanical degasification is typically carried out with vacuum degasifiers that reduce oxygen levels to less than 0.5-1.0 mg/L or with deaerating heaters that reduce oxygen Learn More

  • Secondary Drinking Water Standards: Guidance for Nuisance

    Jan 07, 2021 · Standards related to corrosion and staining: Chloride, Copper, Corrosivity, Iron, Manganese, pH, Total Dissolved Solids, Zinc; Scaling and sedimentation are other processes which have economic impacts. Scale is a mineral deposit which builds up on the insides of hot water pipes, boilers, and heat exchangers, restricting or even blocking water flow.Learn More

  • Water Handbook - Preboiler & Industrial Boiler Corrosion

    Maintenance of proper pH throughout the boiler feedwater, boiler, and condensate systems is essential for corrosion control. Most low-pressure boiler system operators monitor boiler water alkalinity because it correlates very closely with pH, while most feedwater, condensate, and high-pressure boiler water requires direct monitoring of pH.Learn More
