Condenser Tube Cleaning: Essential for Reliable Power Generation

VIEW ON DEMAND

Hosted By: POWER
Sponsored By: Conco

In order for a plant to maintain peak generation capacity, measures to prevent fouling or remove deposits must be applied. Early identification of fouling characteristics and a fundamental knowledge of cleaning system capabilities are essential in determining the most effective cleaning technology. Unique circumstances may require innovative solutions. The common causes of condenser tube fouling and the practical application and innovation of cleaning technology are discussed. State-of-the-Art methods for off-line mechanical tube cleaning are presented, and their effects on tube condition examined.

Managing Equipment Utilization in the Digital Age

VIEW ON DEMAND

Hosted By: POWER
Sponsored By: United Rentals

Managing equipment utilization has always been difficult, and in the Digital Age, equipment is valued as much for the information it can provide – about its location, use and performance – as for the task or tasks it performs. While some companies still manage rental equipment from a best rate or “3 bids and a buy” perspective, growing numbers are searching to leverage information in order to make more informed decisions on their fleet. In this webinar you’ll walk away with a better understand of where to look for opportunities to improve efficiencies on site and in the back office, what key performance indicators to monitor and how to leverage total control to drive productivity improvements.

Fast Start & Cycling HRSGs: Siemens DrumPlus Technology
VIEW ON DEMAND

Hosted By: POWER
Sponsored By: Siemens

Fluctuating renewable power generation is structurally changing the electricity markets in almost every country or region globally. The market demands quick and flexible power generation, especially from Combined Cycle Power Plants (CCPP), which brings challenges to the HRSG design. Siemens offers a revolutionary HRSG design suited for fast start and cycling operations. The HRSG is designed so that peak stresses are significantly reduced. This results in a boiler that is capable of rapid cycling operations. Learn more about the Siemens DrumPlus™ HRSG and its proven references.

How to Implement a High Energy Piping (HEP) Program To Prevent Catastrophic Damages and Minimize Unplanned Outages
VIEW ON DEMAND

Hosted by: POWER
Sponsored by: Mistras

Aging piping lines, corrosion, creep, and other factors can all cause HEP failures. Implementing a High Energy Piping inspection and monitoring program can help prevent high-temperature lines from disastrous ruptures. In addition to the serious safety hazards, these failures also lead to increased maintenance costs and extended unplanned outages.

Beyond the Manual Round in Power Plants…How to Cost-Effectively Increase Power Plant Asset Reliability
VIEW ON DEMAND

Hosted by: POWER magazine
Sponsored by: Emerson

The operational realities of power generating units today are vastly different than they were years ago. Most units were designed for baseload operation, whereas today they’re being cycled to account for an increased renewable portfolio and low natural gas prices. We’re seeing more equipment failures because of these operating profiles. In years past, plants were well staffed, which made it easy to maintain operations. Today, staff and expertise are depleted and maintaining plant assets is much more challenging. Having a plan to lead your utility into the future will be more critical than ever to stay up and running.
