Replacements, collateral damage and penalties

1 hour, limited theory, only relevant info

Return on experience clearly shows that chemistry-related deviations and incidents in power plant water-steam cycles can have costly consequences.

Unwanted deposits and corrosion can lead to boiler leaks or even require piping, heat exchangers or turbine blades to be replaced, resulting in steep replacement costs in many cases. Collateral damage can also be very costly, since it is a requirement for most power plants to produce power, and any unplanned shutdown comes with big penalties.

Fortunately, keeping the risk of incidents to a minimum is possible if precautions are observed.

During the webinar, we will examine and comment the following key-questions:

  1. Is the chemical treatment suited to the circuit’s design?
  2. Is there a monitoring strategy in place for the water-steam circuit?
  3. Does the monitoring strategy focus on the right aspects?
  4. Are the on-line and off-line measurement results reliable?
  5. Have optimal alarm thresholds been set?
  6. Are clear procedures in place for – prompt – appropriate action?
