ALMA - IT solution for leakage detection in the steam generator. With ALMA – Advanced Leakage Monitoring & Alerting, STEAG Energy Services GmbH has developed a system for early and reliable notification about boiler leakages, as an add-on to acoustic sensor systems. ALMA reduces false alarms of acoustic sensor systems and even can detect
For leaks or corrosion, especially in heated portions of the boiler, consider water chemistry. Measure the water quality carefully for dissolved oxygen levels or low pH. Both of these factors are common causes of corrosion or damage to steam boilers.
Leak Testing Steam Turbine Condensers Introduction Power generation turbines, regardless of the type of fuel used, are driven by steam generated in a boiler. The boiler heats water and converts it to steam, spinning the turbine and in turn, driving the generator
There are many causes of boiler water entrainment in steam. A few of the more common mechanisms have been given specific names, such as "spray carryover," "priming," "foaming," and "leakage carryover." EFFECTS OF CARRYOVER. Boiler water solids carried over with steam form deposits in nonreturn valves, superheaters, and turbine stop and control.
