Steam Chemistry Control and Guidelines

Learning objectives

  • Define steam purity and describe factors that affect it
  • Explain the mechanics of steam drum carryover and identify its impact on the steam system
  • Discuss steam turbine deposition and types of corrosion
  • Examine the critical control guidelines for water treatment
  • Describe the best areas for sampling

Course overview

Converting treated water into steam is the boiler's primary purpose. Steam purity is achieved only through adherence to strict control guidelines through the entire system. Proper sampling and analysis programs are critical to achieving an efficient and highly accurate water treatment program.

The Steam Chemistry Control Guidelines training course describes the importance of steam purity and chemistry to the steam turbine. It identifies how water and steam chemistry are controlled and monitored. This online training course focuses on:

  • Steam purity
  • Carryover
  • Steam turbine deposition and corrosion
  • System sampling and analysis

Steam Chemistry Control Guidelines is part of the Water Treatment training series.
