Our company was established in 1998, and is the first ASME accredited special equipment manufacturing enterprise of China Special Equipment Inspection and Research Institute. Through technological and innovative development, our company has become the leading boiler industry in China. The company covers an area of about 170,000 square meters and has more than 700 employees, including more than 200 people with professional and technical titles, and more than 70 people with middle and senior technical titles.

The stoker is derelict of duty:

Failure of water level alarm device and automatic feed water regulator;

The steam and water connecting pipes of the water level gauge are blocked, the cock leaks or other reasons cause false water level;

Failure of water supply equipment or water supply pipeline reduces or interrupts water supply;

After the boiler blowdown, the blowdown valve is not closed or tightly closed, or the blowdown valve leaks;

The boiler water wall, convection tube bundle, economizer tube or smoke tube are exploded to release water vapor.

The causes of boiler water shortage shall be found out in time and handled correctly. Improper handling will cause serious accidents.

Treatment methods for water shortage: 

(1) If the water level is only lower than the normal water level However, it can still be seen that the normal water level can be restored by strengthening the water feeding and flushing water level gauges. 

(2) Check the water supply, make-up and other systems for damage, leakage and other problems, and shut down the boiler for treatment in serious cases. 

(3) When the water level cannot be seen after the treatment of "water calling method" and flushing water level gauge, serious water shortage accident may occur, the boiler shall be shut down immediately, the flame shall be shut down rapidly, and the cause shall be found. At this time, the operator should keep sober and avoid confusion. It is strictly prohibited to feed water to the boiler to avoid serious boiler explosion accidents caused by rushing to replenish water after the boiler drum water is burned dry.
