Cold Water In Your Boiler Causes The Worst Brain Freeze Ever - PART 2

Posted by Greg Frazier on Mon, Sep 29, 2014 @ 12:57 PM

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.)

Are Your Boilers Running Without Automated Blowdown?
