06536 CORROSION EFFECTS FROM HIGH IRON CONCENTRATION IN ALKALINE CHELANT BOILER CLEANING

If the iron concentration in an alkaline chelant boiler cleaning solution reaches a high value when dissolving magnetite, it sometimes continues to increase rapidly and not level, indicating corrosion of the boiler metal. A laboratory study of “runaway iron increases” investigated the cause and the best mitigation methods.

It has frequently been observed that if the iron concentration in an alkaline chelant boiler cleaning solution reaches a high value when dissolving magnetite, it sometimes continues to increase rapidly and not level, indicating corrosion of the boiler metal. A laboratory study of “runaway iron increases” investigated the cause and the best mitigation methods. Waste chelant solutions with high iron concentrations require extra treatment steps unless evaporation is used for waste disposal.
