: Mike, why do you need to get your chlorides below 250? In order to reduce chlorides, blowdown
: is the answer. If the amount of blowdown you are presently performing
: is not enough then you need to keep increasing until you get the right amount.
: However, this may lead to excessive blowdown. Check your condensate return for contamination.
: Condensate tds should be close to zero. If you are getting contamination this can
: be a cause for your chlorides to be high. Something else to check is your softening
: system. Your softener uses sodium chloride for regeneration. If it is not flushing
: the salt from the resin properly, the excess chlorides will enter the boiler. If this is the case,
: you may get chloride readings in the thousands. Email me at any time for more info.
