HRSG


New Monitoring and Analytics Tools Improve Plant Performance

Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) technologies can help make electric generating plants more efficient while increasing availability. The electric power industry is going through a transformational change: increasing renewables from…


Operating HRSGs with Elevated Feedwater pH

Cycle-chemistry guidelines for combined cycle power plants have changed over the years, with pH frequently maintained between 9.6 and 10.0 today. That can cause problems with condensate polisher operation. Plant…


Next-Generation HRSGs Start Fast and Reduce Emissions
HRSG-DrumPlus

Today’s heat recovery steam generators (HRSGs) are suffering reliability problems, mainly because they’re being operated in the cycling mode instead of the baseload mode for which they were designed. The…


Managing Thermal Quench Damage at Power Plants

Attemperation equipment is necessary to control steam temperatures at many power plants. However, when the equipment functions improperly or the design is flawed, thermal quenching/shock can damage piping. Proper inspections…


Analytical Tool Helps HRSG Operators Compare Equipment Reliability
Modular-HRSG-heat-recovery-steam-generator

Ever since deregulation came to the power industry, combined cycle plant managers have been trying to benchmark their production metrics and cycling costs against those of their competitors. There has…
