About the Course
This training course is primarily intended for experienced O&M staff working in thermal power and process plants as well engineering and management staff at the corporate level. The objective is to give attendees all the essentials for effective determination of the root cause of failures that can occur in the boiler, HRSG and associated steam balance-of-plant. The principal failure modes are reviewed, with focus on those occurring in the boiler, critical piping and other key components such as pressure vessels and condensers. Major emphasis is placed on analyzing how upstream events in the steam cycle process can lead to failures in downstream components. Several actual failure case histories treated by expert staff at plants around the world are presented, providing attendees with practical application of the presented concepts.
