Slow Firing Alkali Boil out
Check the boiler erection is completed with all assemblies including druminternals, valves, fittings & necessary instrumentation.2.
Boiler auxiliaries such as ID fan, temporary feed pumps should have been trialrun & made ready for operation.3.
Ensure the flue gas circuit duct erection & welding completion.4.
Ensure the flue gas duct supports are provided as per drgs.5.
Ensure temporary water level gauge glass fixing.6.
Ensure temporary arrangement for monitoring furnace temperature during slowfiring & alkali boil out.7.
Check if all the refractory work is completed.8.
Check & ensure the completion of insulation lagging in boiler pressure parts atthe essential places to ensure the safety.9.
Check all scaffolding, temporary supports, debris are cleared.10.
Check suitable fire fighting equipments such as CO2 or foam type fireextinguishers, sand buckets etc. are available at suitable convenient places.11.
Check sufficient quantity of chemicals are available. Based on the water volumeof the boiler, the chemicals required can be estimated. If water volume of the boiler is Q m3, each chemical required will be 4x Q Kgs.The same quantity of chemicals will be required for each boil out.12.
For alkali boilout Sodium Carbonate & Trisodium Phosphate are used.13.
Prepare 20% concentrated solution of the chemicals separately in a drum & thesolution is charged into the boiler through the nozzles( either auxiliary steam topnozzle or Air vent nozzle) into the shell/drum manually by means of funnel.
