Valmet Recovery Boiler Leak Detector

Valmet Recovery Boiler Leak Detector is a predictive diagnostics tool for detecting recovery boiler leaks. This innovative diagnostics application with advanced calculations enables boiler owners to detect even the smallest tube leaks in an unprecedented way.


  • Typically recognizes a 0.25–0.50% difference between the feedwater and the steam in the feedwater flow
  • Identifies critical leaks
  • Separates critical leaks from non-critical leaks
  • Combines advanced mass and chemical balance calculations
  • Chemical balance is typically calculated using phosphate as a tracer
  • No unnecessary alarms due to changes in load as boiler load swings are taken into account
  • Part of the Valmet Recovery Boiler Optimizer product portfolio
  • Can be implemented on any DCS.


  • Improved boiler safety
  • Reduced damage risks
  • High accuracy
