The Langelier index (LI) is the difference between the actual (measured) pH and the calculated pH of water. It gives an approximate measure of the degree of saturation of calcium carbonate in water. The sign and magnitude of the Langelier index show the water's tendency to form or dissolve scale and thus to inhibit or encourage corrosion.

The Effects of High Conductivity in Boiler Water Treatment. Standard pH sensors will be able to help you identify the levels of pH in your boiler water. The carbonate alkalinity that's found in the water is directly converted into CO2 by the pressure and heat from the boiler.
Corrosion is a natural process that converts a refined metal into a more chemically-stable form such as oxide, hydroxide, or sulfide.It is the gradual destruction of materials (usually a metal) by chemical and/or electrochemical reaction with their environment. Corrosion engineering is the field dedicated to controlling and preventing corrosion.. In the most common use of the word, this means
Inferred pH in Steam Plant Water Chemistry Monitoring Introduction Background Inferred pH means pH calculated from straight and cation conductivity. The calculation can be applied to condensate, feedwater, and boiler water. Although not widely used in the United States, inferred pH is popular in Europe. Some plant chemists find
Boiler water chemistry - Properties of feed water Controlling the PH of water is the first step towards boiler treatment. We all know that if PH is below 7 the solution is acidic and above 7 it's alkaline. For boiler water PH is maintained between 11-11.8 and that of feed water between 7-9. Effects.
The most critical factor to protecting aluminum within a water system is maintaining pH within the stable range for aluminum. Aluminum forms a naturally protective barrier of aluminum oxide on the metal surface, but this oxide film is only stable in a pH range of approximately 4.0 to 8.5.Outside of this range, the oxide film can begin to degrade.

Aqua ammonia corrodes copper (and copper-containing alloys such as brass), zinc, cadmium and silver. For chemical corrosivity information, see the Materials Compatibility section on page 6. Physical Properties Aqua ammonia is a clear, colorless liquid having a strong pungent ammonia odor. Specific Gravity The specific gravity of aqua ammonia is
on the corrosivity of the water. The constituents affecting the pH are very unstable upon a pressure release (ie, H2S, CO2, HCO3), therefore, the pH of water will rapidly change when removed from a pressurized system. It is imperative that the pH be measured immediately upon sampling. The pH can also be measured in-vitro with an in-line pH meter.
pH Temperature Correction Calculator * Special thanks to Lev Taytsas for his help. This calculator attempts to correct the reading of a pH meter that does not internally account for temperature. If your pH meter features automatic temperature compensation (ATC) or the ability to "dial-in" temperature, it is already internally performing this
High-efficiency boilers and furnaces require a condensate neutraliser to protect drain pipes from corrosion. ©123RF.COM. Condensate from a high-efficiency furnace typically has a pH of about 5.0, but can range from 3.5 to 6.5. It's important to note that pH is a logarithmic scale, so pH 5 water is 10 times more acidic than pH6.
These mixed bed resins are used in Demineralization plant of boiler feed water treatment, to remove the ions (especially Na + and SO 3 2-) which may further present in the water after foregoing process of purification.. Degasser. The function of degasser tower is to remove carbonate ions by forming carbon-di-oxide. In degasser tower stream of water is poured from top and air is blown from

Fischer EB is an electric combi-boiler that has been built with the future in mind. With no need for water tanks or cylinders and a system that is 100% energy-efficient, it is the modern and efficient solution to replace your outdated heating.
For new boiler installations, the system is often precleaned prior to service with a high pH boiler chemical cleaner. This procedure is referred to as boiler "boil out". This chemical is a corrosion inhibited, high alkaline product that is added directly to the boiler water and recirculates.
The characteristic of corrosivity is one step of the hazardous waste determination process that you must complete for every waste stream that you generate. Your waste is a corrosive hazardous waste, with waste code D002, if a representative sample has
The Langelier Saturation Index (LSI) is a formula developed from studies conducted by Dr. Wilfred Langelier in the early 20th century. The LSI is the basis for water balance and saturation, and this article will try to explain how it works in a simplified way.

Corrosivity A waste exhibits the characteristic of corrosivity if it is aqueous and has a pH less than or equal to 2 or greater than or equal to 12.5 as determined by a pH meter, or exhibits a corrosivity to steel in excess of 635 mm/yr. Corrosivity as pH can be found in SW-846 Methods 9040 and 9045; corrosivity to steel is SW-846 Method 1110. ENCO
4.1 Information on pH of soil is used as an aid in evaluating the corrosivity of a soil environment. Some metals are more sensitive to the pH of their environment than others, and information on the stability of a metal as a function of pH and potential is available in the literature. 3
slag-tap boiler burns pulverized coal while the cyclone boiler burns crushed coal. Wet-bottom boiler slag is a term that describes the molten condition of the ash being drawn from the bottom of the furnaces. Both boiler types have a solid base with an orifice that can be opened to permit molten ash to flow into a hopper below.
The USGS National Water-Quality Assessment (NAWQA) Project has been studying where and why surface water and groundwater that are sources of drinking water are corrosive. Many factors contribute to corrosivity, including elevated concentrations of chloride, pH out of neutral range, elevated concentrations of dissolved and suspended solids, and
Low pH or insufficient alkalinity can lead to acidic attack. Speed of oxygen scavenging reaction is pH dependent; Most low and medium pressure boiler operations monitor boiler water alkalinity because it correlates closely with pH. The pH or alkalinity level maintained in a boiler system depends on factors such as pressure, metals, feedwater
pH Control pH plays a vital role in boiler water control. A slightly alkaline pH must be maintained to prevent corrosion. The alkalinity helps maintain a passivation layer, which protects the boiler from corrosion. The typical pH levels maintained in different parts of the boiler are included in the table below.
- Corrosivity of dissolving oxygen in water doubles for every 18 F increase in temperature - Corrosivity of water increases as pH increases-Corrosion layer is compromised at low and high pH at higher temperatures. A pH between 7 and 10 gives a lower rate of corrosion. - Corrosivity of water increases as conductivity increases

Sodium silicate and magnesium sulfate usually are added to buffer the solutions and to sequester metal ions, which would otherwise wastefully accelerate the decomposition of the peroxide. Typical conditions are 1-3 wt % hydrogen peroxide, 1.1 wt % sodium hydroxide, 5 wt % sodium silicate, and 0.05 wt % magnesium sulfate.

When the pH values are between about 5 and 8.5, the pH has little impact on soil corrosivity. However, the corrosion rate increases rapidly when the pH is outside of that range. Lead is also an amphoteric metal. When the pH values are between about 4 and 10, the pH has little impact on soil corrosivity.
Feed of oxygen scavenger and amines downstream of the deaerator "scrubber" section, that is, to the dearator storage section, is typically done to adjust water pH there, and to add amines for condensate pH/corrosion control (amines avaporate in boiler and "follow" steam to condensate lines). So, boiler feed water is DOWNSTREAM of the deaerator.
