Performing periodic inspections is an important part of prolonging power piping safety, reliability, efficiency, and profitability. A key objective is the targeted and judicious use of inspection resources to detect damage in plant piping systems. Although the focus is on large-bore or high-energy piping, also known as "Covered Piping Systems" according to ASME, the overall condition of the piping including smaller bore lines should also be verified.
Tetra Engineering provides a full-scope service for the modelling and operation analysis of all types of natural or forced circulation Power Boiler and HRSGs, including supercritical and once-through designs. This can be integrated into a full plant model to incorporate the steam turbine and steam cycle balance of plant.
Risk-based inspection (RBI) is an approach for ranking the priority of inspection and maintenance according to an assessed risk to the component or system integrity. One key aspect of any RBI program is to carefully select the locations for non-destructive examination (NDE) that are most susceptible to damage, according to the component's design and past and project operating mode, while considering the resources and time available during an upcoming inspection. Using multi-disciplinary experience and tools (thermal simulation, life assessment, structural calculations….) Tetra will help you get the most out of your NDE campaigns, by providing pre-outage planning, on-site supervision and post-inspection review.
The offline (or cold) inspection is an essential O&M activity at any thermal power or process plant. For steam generating equipment, whether it's a small industrial package boiler or a large utility-scale supercritical coal boiler, this is especially critical since only during a shutdown can the condition of all internal components be assessed in detail.
The borescope is an essential tool for inspecting of power plant components. Commonly used in high-value rotating power-plant equipment such as steam turbines, gas turbines and generators it is also extremely useful for checking the internal or to reach external surfaces of boiler and HRSG tubes and piping.
Discover cost-effective solutions for decarbonizing power generation with hydrogen and ammonia fuels. Tetra Engineering evaluates their impact on thermal power plants, including performance and emissions.
The broad experience acquired over years of providing expert technical support to plants operating conventional and CFB radiant boilers or HRSGs is now available to operators of concentrated solar power (CSP) and hybrid steam power plants incorporating thermal energy storage (TES).
