EPRI International Conference on Cycle Chemistry in Fossil and Combined Cycle Plants
When: June 26-28, 2018
Where: Arlington, VA
Location: Westin Arlington Gateway


Cycle Chemistry is widely recognized as an important consideration for ensuring high standards of availability, reliability, and efficiency of steam and water touched components in the cycles of utility fossil-fueled power generating systems. Chemistry related damage in fossil steam generators and steam turbines may result in component failures that require expensive and sometimes lengthy forced outages. This international conference will once again provide the industry with the latest information, developments, and field experience in all aspects of fossil plant cycle chemistry as applied to conventional plants and combined cycle units with heat recovery steam generators (HRSG). The major conference theme is to review, document and transfer technology on the current understanding of the chemistry requirements of fossil and combined cycle units under all operating conditions and identify those areas where better information is needed. Changing economic conditions and increases in a non-dispatchable renewable generation have led to dramatic increases in cyclic operation and unit layup. The chemistry issues resulting from this shift in fossil generating asset operation are a primary focus of the 2018 edition of the conference. Presentations will be given by recognized chemistry experts representing utility organizations, equipment manufacturers and consulting and research organizations from around the world.

    Installation Report-China
    Website: 
    When: May 2018
    Where: Fujian Ningde Datang, China
    Location: Baima port, Fu'an City, Ningde Prefecture, Fujian Province, China

    Waltron Installation Report from China 

    This report showcases the recent installation and startup of multiple Waltron 3041 Silica Analyzers in the Fujian Province of China. The parent company Datang International Power Generation required consistently accurate and dependable on-line analyzers for their ultra-pure water to steam project. The Baim Port Facility is a major plant for the Fujian Province which produces 1,200 MW when fully running. They have been operating since 2009 and Waltron was chosen to be the partners for providing all the replacement analyzers for this project.

    We are very pleased to report on the selection of Waltron analyzers to replace the existing units.

        

    Operator training and maintenance was conducted during the startup period. Installation and startup can be stressful without the proper support. Waltron teams have support thorough operator training and we know it is essential for continued success.


    The advantages of a touchscreen interface over the previous analyzers were evident to all operators during startup.

    Where: Flemington, NJ
    Location: Waltron Group Headquarters
    “It was a shock when I realized what everyone thought was good enough, just wasn’t,” admitted Waltron President and CEO, Jon Guy.  “When I took control of the business in 2014, the chemistry lab was considered one of the company’s strengths. But it wasn’t continuously improving; I knew we had to take decisive action if we wanted to make Waltron the undisputed leader in this category.”
