    What is boiler priming and how to prevent it ?

  • #2
    It is condition in which large amount of water are carried along with the steam into the steam line.

    It is caused by

    1. Excessive foaming

    2. Improper amount of steam space

    3. By a sudden rush of steam such as is produced when steam stop valve is suddenly opened.

    To prevent priming, never keep the water level too high. Open steam stop valve slowly.
