Fossil and Combined Cycle Power Plants

The ionic purity of boiler water, feedwater, and steam is important to maintain component availability and reliability in power plants. Failure mechanisms in the boiler, turbine, heaters, and condensers of fossil power plants and in HRSGs can be directly related to water and steam ionic purity. By understanding the ionic contamination levels for water and steam contaminants, utilities and operators can eliminate or reduce damage from corrosion, scaling, and deposition. Additionally, monitoring water and steam quality for the presence of ionic species can improve fossil plant and HRSG availability for power production.
