Skimming a new boiler

I had a new boiler installed but it was never skimmed. It has an automatic water feed so I am not sure how to slowly add water to skim it. Would some chemical be better especially if I drained it after the chemical was put in?

Is this a steam boiler or hot water?

It is a steam boiler I had to replace the old one and was able to skim that one because it was a manual feed.
