Product Announcement from Alstom
The CA-PRO Service establishes a system to document the past in an easy-to-view format in order to understand the present. Inspections and planning become less difficult to manage as the CA-PRO Service provides a solid foundation to build upon and a road map to follow in protecting valuable equipment including the entire water and steam touched surfaces from the economizer inlet to the hot reheat turbine inlet, including headers, tubing, links, leads, and piping.
CA-PRO Service will help:
• Maximize boiler reliability
• Increase plant availability
• Reduce boiler forced outages
• Increase time between outages
• Safeguard critical information
• Improved budget forecasting and maintenance planning
• Plan upgrades and retrofits
