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.
Visit us at the Waltron table and meet our Director of Engineering.
GO Forum is an annual event that brings together AEP employees, utility company guests and top industry suppliers to network and learn about Plant and Generation Optimization (GO) through technology and process improvement.
Now in its 38th year, this comprehensive program features state-of-the-art information on controlling corrosion, improving operation efficiency, and meeting environmental challenges in fossil- and nuclear-fueled power plants. This year’s program is geared toward improved training and continuing education of personnel responsible for electric utility cycle and environmental chemistry.

Visit our table at the event and meet our senior chemist - Hal and many of our new products.
We are pleased to give a great Welcome/ Bienvenido to Manuel Castillo - our new Sales Manager for Florida, Caribbean, and Latin America.
Manuel was born in Puerto Rico and is currently living in Palm Harbor, Florida. He is married to Martha Romero, also a Chemical Engineer; and a proud father of three children and three grandchildren.
Manuel is a US Navy Veteran and possesses a BS in Chemistry and further studies in Analytical Chemistry. Manuel brings 17 years of experience in the ultra-pure water chemistry industry.
We are pleased to bring the experience and talents of Manuel to our proud organization. As Waltron expands our dedicated sales and support for these growing areas, we reaffirm our commitment in the region and in the technology we offer.
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.
Each spring and fall, the Waltron Group holds sales and service training for end users and distributors worldwide. This year was a great success with attendees
from across the US, various countries in the EU, and as far as China.
"Great Job Waltron! Robust product line.."
"Well conducted and clearly presented."
