This Two-Day Seminar will be held in Spanish.
The exact dates and location will be announced soon.
Objective of the Seminar
Damage caused by corrosion, unplanned shutdowns, deterioration of efficiency and performance for chemical reasons are still among the main and performance deterioration due to chemical reasons are still among the main causes of large economic causes of major economic losses in power plants.
Often, inadequate selection of the treatment program or inappropriate chemical monitoring coupled with monitoring coupled with countermeasures applied too late are reasons for these setbacks. are reasons for these setbacks. The seminar will show by means of selected case selected case studies the negative economic impacts and how an optimal chemistry can contribute can contribute considerably to improving the economic equation of each plant.
A clear understanding of the qualities of the water being produced and the interaction with the various materials used and the different processes and conditions of each system is of vital importance to avoid these negative impacts and improve the economic benefits.
This seminar provides up-to-date and easy-to-understand information on the objectives and tasks of water-steam chemistry and tasks of water-steam cycle chemistry, as well as the necessary basics of water chemistry, the science behind necessary basic concepts of water chemistry, the science behind corrosion, etc. The The topics to be covered are the result of a selection work through surveys of participants of previous surveys conducted with participants of previous seminars and supplemented by the experts in charge of the experts in charge of the seminar.
The different possible operational regimes, the relevant guidelines (e.g. IAPWS, EPRI, VGB) and the necessary considerations for the concept will be demonstrated. monitoring concept, as well as the selection and optimal application in relation to the individual plant to the individual plant design.
