CEO Karel van Wijk Presents at IMechE Heat Recovery Steam Generator User Group 2022

Karel presented on the subject of importance and improvements in valve design for drain and steam attemperator applications.

With uptime and longevity being more imperative than ever, ensuring the correct valve with the latest enhancements in today’s demanding energy market, gives the opportunity to save money, water, and energy.

Water loss through drain valves is becoming an increasing problem in terms of cost for a modern generating plant; the water needs to be procured, treated and processed, pumped and heated in the boiler to generate steam, meaning leakages can have significant implications for the plant, not only in damage to valves, but the initial outlay in process and money to obtain the required water quality. From our experience, this is often something overlooked as drain valves are not directly critical to plant operation.

Incorrect attemperation not only causes damage to downstream pipework, nozzles and associated fittings, it has a direct impact on performance of the asset. Excessive water usage and instability in temperatures in the downstream steam are to be avoided. We take a look into the whole process and aim to deliver a single controlled mast type attemperator suitable of delivering accurate and consistent attemperation in all applications, whether final or interstage.
