WHY

The major themes of this international conference will include:

  • HRSG tube failures (HTF) (FAC, thermal fatigue, creep-fatigue, under-deposit corrosion)
  • Pressure part failure mechanisms related to condensate, drains, and attemperator systems
  • Identifying and avoiding damaging thermal transients in pressure parts
  • Water treatment and cycle chemistry for HRSGs including FFS
  • HRSG preservation for different operational modes
  • Behavior and measurement of total iron for operation and daily start/stop
  • Material selection and new material applications
  • Balance of plant including the steam turbine, condenser, and air-cooled condenser.
  • Optimization of plant controls
  • Environmental aspects
  • Fast Start HRSGs
  • Troubleshooting and maintenance of large valves
