Abstract

"The conditions of operation at the Gorge Power Plant were such that raw water was used in all the boilers. The boilers were operated at an average of about one-hundred and seventy-five percent rating and considerable scale formed in the tubes of the boilers. It was evident that this caused a large loss in fuel and increased the expense of maintenance. It was necessary to employ a number of men to remove the scale. An investigation was made to determine as nearly as possible the loss caused by the use of impure water. After the investigation, an attempt was made to prevent the formation of scale in the boilers. The complete results of the investigation and the methods adapted for the elimination of scale should be of interest to engineers who have a problem in feed water purification"--Pages 2-3.
