Technical Data Sheet

BOILER SYSTEM OXYGEN CONTROL

Corrosion protection both during boiler operation and shutdown is a major objective of any boiler system treatment program.  It is well known that water containing dissolved oxygen can be highly corrosive to steel boiler system components. 

Oxygen corrosion is particularly insidious since it is a local attack/pitting mechanism.  Consequently, dissolved oxygen, even at reduced levels, can very quickly lead to catastrophic failure of steel boiler components. 

Oxygen removal is typically accomplished using both mechanical and chemical methods.  Mechanical methods are typically used to remove the bulk of the dissolved oxygen, typically to <50 ppb.  Chemical scavengers are typically used to remove the remaining small concentration of dissolved oxygen.
