  • Your description of a low water failure in a boiler includes the safety valve which is inaccurate. The low water condition decreases the strength of the boiler metal which allows it to fail at normal operating pressures with catastrophic effect. The safety valve protects the boiler from excessive pressure from firing the boiler beyond what the plant load demands.

  • All machinery require regular and consistent monitoring and maintenance. There are no shortcuts, however we can reduce the wear and tear costs by acting as you have pointed out in your article.
