A valve generally used to continuously regulate concentration of solids in the boiler, not the drain valve.



Related Terms

SUSPENDED SOLIDS

Undissolved solids in boiler water.

BLOWDOWN

The drain connection including the pipe and the valve at the lowest practical part of a boiler, or at the normal water level in the case of a surface blowdown. The amount of water blown down.

CONTINUOUS BLOWDOWN

The uninterrupted removal of concentrated boiler water from a boiler to control total solids concentration in the remaining water.

BOILER PRIMING

An induction of boiler water caused by the steam flow into the steam line. The water may be in the form of a spray or a solid body.

ION EXCHANGE

A reversible process by which ions are interchanged between solids and a liquid. These ions exist throughout the solution and act almost independently.

GAS LIFT

Solids movement operation in which an upward-flowing gas stream in a closed conduit or vessel is used to lift and move powdered or granular solid material.

BOILER MOUNTINGS

Various valves and fittings are required for the safe and proper working of a boiler . Those attached directly to the pressure parts of the boiler are referred to as the boiler mountings. Minimum requirements for boiler mountings: 1) two safety valves; 2) one steam stop valve; 3) two independent feed check valves; 4) two water gauge or equivalent; 5) one pressure gauge; 6) one salinometer valve or cock; 7) one blowdown/scum v/v; 8) one low level fuel shut off device and alarm

SAFETY-VALVE NOZZLE

A flanged nozzle by which a safety valve is connected to a boiler shell or drum.

SLUG

A solid body of boiler water passed into the steam flow by priming or picked up from a pocket of condensate in the steam line.

CENTRIFUGAL SETTLER

Spinning container that separates solid particles from liquids; centrifugal force causes suspended solids to move toward or away from the center of rotation, thus concentrating them in one area for removal.
