Water Handbook - Steam Turbine Deposition, Erosion

Troublesome turbine blade deposits may occur with surprisingly low (0.6 ppm) total solids contamination in steam. In the 3.56 MPa range, however these deposits are usually water soluble and can be removed by periodic washing. In the 4 to 10 MPa range, however, silica deposits predominate and these deposits are not easily removed by water washing. With operating pressure of 13 MPa and above insoluble

harmful effect of hard water in boiler

The effect of boiler water pH on the silica distribution ratio becomes greater at higher pH values. A pH increase from 11.3 to 12.1 reduces the ratio by 50%, while a pH increase from 7.8 to 9.0 has no measurable effect. For any boiler pressure and pH, the distribution ratio

THE REMOVAL OF SILICA FROM WATER FOR BOILER FEED

the steam. In high pressure boilers, therefore, silica is appreciably concentrated in the steam and this is when 'carry-over' may occur, being deposited later, on the superheaters or turbine blades. Silica entering a high pressure boiler can concentrate very quickly. An impurity entering at a concentration of 2 mgl-1 in a boiler evaporating 1500 tons of water per hour, would collect in the boiler at a rate of 2 tons per month.

Scaling vs. Corrosion: Why It Matters for Your Boiler Feed

plant using exclusively chemically treated natural water for boiler feed makeup. THE LITERATURE ON THE REMOVAL OF SILICA In considering the removal of silica from water it is convenient to divide the methods into the following classification (A) distillation (B) electro-osmosis (C) precipitation or adsorption (or both) and (D) anion exchange.

Scaling in boilers - Lenntech

•Silica normal saturated steam should be < 20 ppb in most boilers. High pH in the boiler water will reduce silica carryover from the boiler water. Monitor the steam because: •Precipitation of silica forms silicate deposits on the cold end of the turbine that are not water soluble and are very difficult to remove. The deposits may cause

Silica Monitoring TECHNICAL NOTE On Power Plant

Silica is the only boiler watersalt which vaporizes at pressures below 2400 psig. It can vaporize at pressures as low as 400 psig. This has caused deposition problems in numerous turbines. The solubility of silica in steam increases with increased temperature: silica becomes more soluble as steam is

After silica enters the boiler water, the usual corrective action is to increase boiler blow down (to decrease the boiler wa. Continue Reading. Due to silica content in the feed water goes to steam drum where separation of wet steam and water takes place and in this way silica content increased in Boiler drum.The most significant factor in minimizing silica deposits is the maintenance of low silica
