How to Destroy a Boiler -- Part 1

For example, a steam drum that is operating at normal water level has the bottom half of the drum cooled by water and the top half by air initially and steam eventually. If one starts to fire the boiler from a cold start, the water will heat up very quickly in the drum and the bottom half of the drum will expand much more quickly than the top

Water-tube boiler plant is much less tolerant of high TDS levels, and even less so as the pressure increases. This is due to a number of reasons, including: Water-tube boilers have a limited water surface area in the steam drum, relative to the evaporation rate. This results in very high steam release rates per unit of water area, and turbulence.

Understanding Humidity in Environmental Test Chambers

Note: If using a city water line, a water pressure regulator is highly recommended to lower the water pressure to 25 PSIG for steam generator/boiler systems and 10 PSIG for atomizing humidity systems. High water pressure may cause the top or bottom cap (white) on the water filter to crack. This may result in water leakage that can
