Course Description

Course Objectives For Boiler Steam-Water Cycle Chemistry - Importance of the Chemistry Parameters and Controls

Water and steam are the lifeblood of any steam-driven power facility, and proper chemistry control is critically important to plant operation, reliability, the bottom line, and especially personnel safety. In the last three decades, our understanding of high pressure water/ steam chemistry has greatly advanced through direct experience and from excellent research and funding by organizations such as the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI). In spite of research and numerous publications regarding steam generation chemistry, many in the power industry have not yet been properly informed of new developments. This problem is exacerbated by the retirement of many power plant Baby Boomers, which is creating a void in operational knowledge. Many thousands of industrial plants around the world generate high-pressure steam for process applications and power generation. Yet, water/ steam monitoring and control often take a back seat to process operations, even though corrosion, scaling and other problems caused by poor water/ steam chemistry can cost a plant crore(s) of rupees. Plant operators, engineers and technical
personnel should be alert to critical issues regarding water/steam quality during steam generation.
By the end of this training, the participants will be able to:
1. Identify and understand the importance of chemistry parameters in Boiler/ Steam-water cycle
2. Understand the cost-effectiveness of Preventive Maintenance program through chemistry applications
3. Apply techniques of optimisation of fuel by reducing blowdown through proper steam-water cycle chemistry control
4. Make the important decision on the basis of the chemistry parameters
5. Create monitoring systems with trending to assess the chemistry controls and excursions
