What is boiler feed water
Boiler feed water is an essential part of boiler, steam generating device for power and heat production.
During the steam production, dissolved solids become concentrated in water remaining at the bottom of the boiler and form sediments inside the boiler. This leads to reducing the efficiency of the boiler. Therefore the treatment of boiler feed water is an important part of operating and maintaining a boiler system.
Boiler water pH
At a resistivity of 18,2 MΩ∙cm, the water has a pH of 7,0. At resistivity of 5 MΩ∙cm, the pH is in the range of 6,3 – 7,8.
