Improving productivity and reliability of equipment and processes is of vital importance to power plants, refineries and industrial production facilities. It can be difficult to know exactly what you should be looking for when it comes to the care of your units.

With Total Performance™ you can anticipate problems and keep your condenser tubes at optimum efficiency. The three part process identifies the status of condenser tubes, detects equipment fatigue that can cause inefficiency, and cleans the tubes to improve flow and heat transfer. Together, these processes can increase efficiency by as much as 4%.

In this webinar, we will discuss how the implementation of condenser cleaning, leak detection, and nondestructive testing will maximize MW output and minimize condenser related outages during your operating cycle.
