Your plant's steam and water analysis systems (SWAS) instrumentation is incredibly sensitive, with detection limits that can be hard to comprehend. One of the most commonly used Units of measurement in a power plant SWAS is parts per billion (PPB). One PPB is the equivalent of one inch in 16,000 miles or one second in 32 years. Limits on specific parameters are less than 3 parts per billion and it is not uncommon to observe concentrations of less than .5 PPB on a steam sodium analyzer.Read More
Effectively monitoring cycle chemistry in a power plant relies on analyzer data's availability, accuracy, and trustworthiness. If your plant isn't utilizing smart chemistry alarms, you may be missing out on easily accessible information.Read More
Chemical analysis of water and steam samples in utility plants requires precise control of flow and pressure. A common element of the steam and water sampling system is a pressure reducing valve to control the pressure of the sample. However, using an incorrect valve can not only damage plant and sampling equipment, but possibly injure operators. That’s why it’s essential to match plant applications with the correct pressure reducing valves.Read More
A well-planned and designed steam and water analysis system (SWAS) with the right instrumentation can help provide the critical insights you need to monitor cycle chemistry, protect equipment and ensure safe operation.Read More
A steam and water analysis system (SWAS) conditions, analyzes and monitors the chemical properties of the steam and water used to generate electricity. One of the primary factors that affect the results from a SWAS is sample temperature. Controlling temperature in a SWAS requires the correct equipment to eliminate analysis compensation and sources of error in measurements to improve chemical feed accuracy and cost savings.
Temperature is one of the most critical parameters to control when sampling in a power plant, and accurate and reliable measurements are essential for operational excellence. Incorrect measurements can result in unreliable data that can lead to safety issues and costly equipment damage.Read More
Since a steam and water analysis system (SWAS) is critical to any power plant, any variation from optimal operation and consistent steam and water sampling can lead to problems that cause added time and expense.
The burning question is: Do you trust your process analytics?Read More
Maintaining proper, slightly alkaline pH levels in boilers and Heat Recovery Steam Generators (HRSGs) is critical in preventing boiler tube corrosion that can be costly to an operation and potentially harmful to employees.Read More
