The Role Water Level Controls Play in a Boiler
Water level controls refer to the systems in your boiler that monitor the water level, and open the feedwater valve or start a pump to add more water as needed. If the water level in a boiler gets too high, the boiler loses steam pressure, steam quality and efficiency. If the water level gets too low, the boiler can be damaged or even explode.
