In the 35 years since the differential aeration theory gave an explanation of the role of oxygen as a corrosion factor (l), extensive work has been carried out on the estimation of dissolved oxygen in boiler feed-water. The increased use, in recent years, of high pressures and temperatures with the associated high ratings of boiler heat-transfer surfaces, has increased the dangers arising from corrosion attributed to dissolved oxygen. This then seemed an apt time to review the problems involved in the estimation of oxygen dissolved in boiler feed-water and in particular the effect reducing agents present in this water have on the estimations.
