Why Chemically Clean a Marine Boiler?
Chemically cleaning a steam generating marine boiler is useful to remove any contaminants that may inhibit heat transfer from the water or fire tubes to the water in them, which could result in premature tube failure within the boiler.
Even newly constructed units require some form of chemical cleaning to remove the oil, mill scale and preservatives used in the manufacture of the material and the installation process.
Operational steam generating boilers require periodic chemical cleaning. The frequency will depend on the operation of the unit, for example the temperatures and time involved.
