The November issue of POWER featured a special section titled “Condenser Life Cycle.” That set of four articles covered topics including condenser performance, operation and maintenance (O&M), failure mechanisms, and retubing—topics you will surely find useful at some time in your career. The authors of those four articles work for companies that are part of a coalition that sponsors the annual Condenser Life Cycle Seminar. Unfortunately, a notice about the next seminar was omitted from the first article.
If you are interested in details about the selection or O&M of steam surface condensers, then the 2012 Condenser Life Cycle Seminar is for you. The conference—scheduled for Feb. 13–15, 2012, at the Hilton Palacio del Rio in San Antonio, Texas—is the place to meet and interact with condenser specialists and get real-world answers to your tough condenser questions.
