Thinking On Water With James:  

In this week’s episode, we’re thinking about the boiler bottom blowdown procedure. What is the purpose of performing a bottom blowdown? What are the types of valves typically seen on a bottom blowdown for a boiler? Are they different types, and, if so, why are they different types? What order should they be opened during a bottom blowdown? Why is this order important? How long should they be opened? What might happen if they are open too long? What order should they be closed?
