cannot be cleaned by ordinary methods, are to be descalo4 by treatment with
solution of muriatic acid as follows:-  Each boiler to be filled to cover the
tubes with a mixture in the proportion of 1 gallon of inhibited muriatic acid
to 9 gallons of water. Solution to stand in boilers for 24 hours, then empty
and flush out with fresh water. 15 - 10 gallon carboys of inhibited muriatic
acid will be required for each boiler to provide correct solution* Method

of application should be by moans of a 2" pipe from main deck into top manhole
door, and the pipe connected with hose to shore water mein, A funnel to be attached to the 2" pipe on main deck in order to intro'duce the acid with the
water, the water flow being adjusted to allow time to introduce all of the acid
before boiler is full.  Careful handling of acid is necessary to prevent acid
burns to personnel handling same, and during the whole operation and until
boilers are emptied, the boilers are to be vented to permit the escape of gas
which will be generated while the acid is active.
Note:  In order to carry out this descaling operation, the tubes which are to
be renewed in each boiler must of necessity be left in the boiler until operation
completed, and where tubes have now been removed for test purposes, the J^les
in drums to be plugged. Before filling boilers v/ith solution, arrangements to
be made to blow solution out after treatment through blow down connections
from each water drum. Air pressure to be used for this purpose.
