: Is it possible to get Ammonia carry over into Steam. The conductivity of the steam leaving the boiler is higher than normal
Are you using ammonia in your boiler water for some reason? The only reason I have seen liquid ammonia used is for condensate line corrosion control in cheese plants(dairy). The ammonia does flash off and leave the boiler with the steam, then when the steam condenses the ammonia combines with the water and elevates ph to help prevent corrosion. I have personally never used ammonia so I can't answer the question about conductivity. However with the normal condenste line treatments such as morpholine, cyclohexylamine, deae, the condensate conductivity is always very low unless you have actual boiler water carryover. Low as in less than 20. Hope this helps.
