    Does anyone have experience using BFW instead of HP steam as heater’s emergency purge?

    Yes you can use BFW or high pressure steam condensate as emergency purge media, but the piping should pass through an active nozzle into the heater pass (for example velocity steam or velocity water connection nozzle), to ensure that the nozzle is not coked off.
