So in our last post we expounded on the dangers of filling a steam boiler with cold water. Oxygen pitting and corrosion are the biggest common issues; however, if you are unlucky enough to add cold water to a boiler that is already running, you could have a much more serious problem on your hands. Basic high school physics teaches us that metal expands and contracts under extreme heating or cooling. Add to that scenario a high pressure steam vessel and cold water and BOOOM! It’s not common, but adding cold water to hot steam system could cause an explosion; it has happened and probably will happen again. (But not at your facility, because you read this post and you have taken the precautions necessary to avoid a catastrophe of that nature.)
