  • Bolt Expansion Job on a Steam Turbine
    The time pressure facing service engineers is made even worse by the technology traditionally used to expand and remove the large bolts that secure turbine covers. So when Alstom Power was performing planned maintenance on a turbine, they asked us if induction heating was a viable alternative.
  • Wet-Steam Turbines for Nuclear Power Plants
    Wet-Steam Turbines for Nuclear Power Plants. Presenting a survey of modern wet-steam turbines, this book explains in clear, but detailed language the design features of the world s leading wet-steam turbine manufacturers, including the subtleties of operation of these complex components.
  • Detection of Steam Extraction Failure within a Condenser Using Infrared Thermography (.pdf)
    The failure of a steam turbine extraction point can be a serious problem which can involve safety issues and damage to equipment. Steam is tapped from various locations within the turbine to power equipment and for other processes in the cycle. The fact that the fluid is high temperature, 200
  • Turbine Steam Path Maintenance and Repair, Volume One
    Turbine Steam Path Maintenance and Repair, Volume One. With thought-provoking examples, numerous photographs and figures, and an excellent simplification of a complicated topic, this authoritative guide provides a complete and focused working knowledge of turbine steam path maintenance and repair.
  • Turbine Steam Path Maintenance and Repair, Volume Two
    Turbine Steam Path Maintenance and Repair, Volume Two. Incorporating photographs, tables, equations, and examples, this book analyzes the repair and refurbishment options currently accessible that will keep turbines operating with high levels of availability and improved efficiency.
  • Turbine Steam Path Mechanical Design and Manufacture, Volume IIIa
    Turbine Steam Path Mechanical Design and Manufacture, Volume IIIa. Focusing on the challenges faced in selecting and arranging the components to optimize unit performance efficiency, reliability, and safety, this book provides the necessary information to evaluate the performance, refurbishment
  • Power Plant Adds Superheated Steam Boiler
    The City of Medicine Hat Power Plant in Alberta, Canada, desired to upgrade its power station to better service area residents. The main focus of the project was to devise a means to allow the plant to solely run on a single Combustion Gas Turbine/HRSG system at night. This scenario produced
  • Monitoring Steam Purity in Power Plants Part 1: Using Conductivity
    Utility operators have long known that contaminated steam can cause severe damage to the turbine, leading to lengthy unplanned outages, expensive repairs, and loss of revenue. Every plant has equipment and procedures in place for controlling steam purity, and no program can be successful without
  • Electric Boiler Heaters for Power Generation
    How Electric Boiler Heaters are used in Steam Power Generation. In power generation facilities that use steam, the steam drives the turbine. The higher the pressure, the more effectively the steam can move the turbine. To achieve this, an electric boiler heater is used in a closed vessel.
  • Spraywater Control Valves
    proper steam temperature. Furthermore, efficient spray control prevents thermal damage to the steam piping, the superheater and the reheater tubes as well as downstream equipment. Operating a turbine with steam above the temperature limits accelerates metal fatigue and creep. This control is necessary
