Continual evaporation in the steam-generating unit increases the dissolved solids content of the boiler water.
If this is not kept to a low level, sediment and scale build up throughout the steam system.
This has a number of effects, including:
Reduced effectiveness of heat transfer, increasing fuel costs
Increased maintenance shutdown and costs due to the requirement to service scaled-up products
Decreased production efficiency as heat transfer to critical process becomes less effective
GESTRA’s BAE valves have a wear-resistant nozzle with a geometry and design that are specifically for continuous blowdown applications.
It is a reliable solution that can handle arduous, continuous boiler blowdown applications at very high differential pressures.
