Pasted Graphic 1
Speaker: Jason Chandler, Senior Engineer – System Engineering at Con Edison (Consolidated Edison, Inc.)

Abstract: Our April meeting will examine Chemical Cleaning of Utility Boilers with an introduction to utility boilers and steam generation. Speaker Jason Chandler (Senior Engineer - System Engineering at Con Edison) will discuss the topic of chemical cleaning in detail, examining what the problem is; why we need to solve it; and, how this is accomplished.

Along the way, Jason will discuss tube deposits - how they develop, whether by water-formed crystallization of salts or by corrosion via chemical reaction of metal with corrosive species, and examine deposits in depth, as well as the many reasons for chemically cleaning a boiler.

Chemical cleaning’s history will be discussed, today’s codes and standards, and the different methods of chemical cleaning, and the equipment used. Process safety requirements will be examined, along with the reactions and chemistry of cleaning. Lastly, waste management and disposal will be explored, and how to return the boiler to service. Examples will be shown with numerous graphic details displayed.
