Boiler treatment chemistry has been shown to be critical in maintaining clean heat transfer surfaces and minimizing corrosion in higher pressure industrial boilers. Monitoring corrosion using hydrogen analysis has been shown to be the superior procedure for decades. Minimizing boiler feed water contamination from condensate leakage and upsets is also a critical paramenter required to maintain chemistry parameters necessary to promote passivation and clean heat transfer surfaces. Hydrogen analysis has also been shown to detect FACand subsequently monitr corrective procedures.
