The article discusses the five primary reasons to consider in making deaeration part of a boiler/steam/condensate cycle. They are oxygen removal, carbon dioxide removal, improved operation, improved heat transfer and energy savings. An in-depth explanation for the five reasons are provided. It notes that most engineers consider including a deaerator when installing a steam boiler.
