Preventive vs. Reactive Maintenance Part 4: Steam Generation Series 

In this article, we will examine how both proper boiler chemistry monitoring and conscientious steam system maintenance are necessary for reliable and safe operation.  A key takeaway, that hopefully has been a recognizable thread throughout these installments, is the importance of training.  Too often, the author has visited plants where the water treatment/steam generation personnel were undertrained and/or not given the proper tools for the job.

Leveraging BIM for Enhanced Maintenance: A New Era in Facility Management

Over the past twenty years, building information modeling (BIM) has been steadily securing itself as an essential tool in the architecture, engineering, and construction fields. Its advanced 3D capabilities are used in just about every design and construction phase. However, with new developments in real-time data collection, the advantages of BIM can extend beyond the completion of a facility.When applied to facility management, BIM opens the door to better asset management, improved safety, and optimized maintenance strategies that ensure that a building performs at its best 100 percent of the time.

Boiler Water Chemistry Control: Preventive vs. Reactive Maintenance  

Any number of impurities can cause scaling and corrosion in boilers unless properly controlled. But even with properly-treated makeup, boilers require internal treatment to minimize corrosion and other problems. The high-temperatures and pressures in boilers magnify chemical reactions and corrosion mechanisms. This installment examines important boiler water treatment concepts.
