Blow down

A term commonly used when discussing boilers.

The boiler level is blown down when too many solids show up in the boiler water.

The water has to be replaced with treated water that contributes to the problem of controlling the boiler water pH.

Chemicals then have to be added that contribute to the solids problem and you go "round and round".

Please see "condensate" for additional information.
