how does a deaerator work

Explained: How Does a Deaerator Work?

What is Deaerator? Deaerator is a mechanical equipment that removes dissolved gases mainly dissolved oxygen & other non-condensable gases from boiler feed water. Oxygen causes pitting type corrosion in feed water systems. The process of removing dissolved gases from water also known as mechanical Deaeration. Deaeration process of boiler feed water divided in two parts:

pitting corrosion in boiler

What is Pitting Corrosion?

Oxygen Pitting Corrosion in boiler: The presence of dissolved oxygen in boiler system is responsible for pitting corrosion. Water acts as a cathode of any corrosion cell to depolarize, thereby sustaining the corrosion process. The most familiar form of oxygen attack in boilers and condensate systems is oxygen pitting. Oxygen pitting is a problem for

Ryznar Stability Index(RSI)

Ryznar Stability Index(RSI) was developed by John Ryznar in 1940. It is also called Rznar Index. The reason behind the development of ryznar index is to get more accurate prediction of calcium carbonate scale than Langalier Saturation Index which was developed in 1936. Ryznar Index has its own concept & basis of prediction. However the

pH level of water

pH Level of Water | pH of Drinking Water

What is pH level of water? The term pH means “Power of Hydrogen” or “Potential of Hydrogen” in chemistry. But simply pH level of water indicates the concentration of hydrogen ion in water. pH Formula & pH Scale: Based on hydrogen ion concentration pH scale is developed. pH scale ranges from 0 to 14. pH

Alkalinity of water

What is Alkalinity of Water?

Alkalinity of water means acid neutralization capacity of water. When you add acid in water (adding H+ ions) water absorbs H+ ions without showing significant change in pH. Mainly, it is due to carbonate, bicarbonate & hydroxide ion present in water or the mixture of two ions present in water. The possibility of OH– and

Water Hardness

Temporary And Permanent Hardness of Water

Simple defination of hardness is the amount of calcium & magnesium ions present in water. It is divided in two parts carbonate or temporary hardness and non-carbonate or permanent hardness. It is a major source of scale in water systems i.e.boiler water & cooling water systems. Softening is a popular method for removal of hardness

Langelier Saturation Index(LSI) Calculation

What is Langelier Saturation Index? Langelier Saturation Index(LSI) was developed by Scientist Langelier in 1936. The LSI is used to determine the need for calcium carbonate precipitation scale control in water sources containing a TDS concentration of less than 10,000 mg/L LSI is most widely used tool to predict tendency of cooling water. In order
