The following caution applies to each test that is discussed: IF THE TESTING PROCEDURES OF THE EQUIPMENT AND/OR REAGENT SUPPLIER DIFFERS FROM THAT PRESCRIBED IN THIS TEXT, THE SUPPLIER'S PROCEDURE SHOULD BE USED.
Test for Hardness
Boilers operating at pressures of 15 psi and less are normally used for space heating and hot-water generation. Practically all the condensate is returned to the plant. Only a small amount of makeup is required, and secondary feedwater treatment usually is sufficient. When appreciable quantities of steam are used in process work and not returned as condensate to the plant, the problem of scaling and corrosion arises, and moreContinue Reading
