BOILER BOIL OUTS
For a safe and efficient start up of steam generating equipment, it is recommended to remove any organic matter from the internal surfaces. Construction oil and grease compounds may cause foaming and reduce heat transfer on the tubes, which can cause tube failure. As a prevention measure, boiler boil outs are recommended prior to start up activities. This is another alkaline way of cleaning steam generating systems.
COMMISSIONING BOILER/CONDENSER CLEANING
Commissioning boiler cleaning is highly recommended for any steam generating systems. The cleaning is performed when a boiler is filled with a water-based chemical solution. The solution is heated either by starting the boiler itself or by using steam from an external boiler. Maintaining the conditions above the boiling point, chemical concentration, and oil content are monitored for a certain period of time or until the oil content drops to a predetermined level.
