Robin Buller, responsible for business development strategy at KRR ProStream, delivered a presentation entitled Maintaining Optimal Performance in Power Generating Plant at Maintec 2012. Robin's talk took place on 29th February in the LearnShop 1 zone of the event.
In his presentation, Robin discussed the cycle of analysis and activity which KRR ProStream adopts in order to help power plant operators maintain optimal generating performance. This included an insight into the various parameters that should be monitored in the different areas of a plant and an overview of the indications and trends that can be used to determine when intervention is required. The different cleaning technologies employed will also be explained, together with real life examples of the performance improvements that can be delivered through their use.
In addition to presenting at the event, KRR ProStream also exhibited on Stand C13. A number of online cleaning and inspection technologies were available for visitors to view, including the KRR View High Temperature Inspection Camera and mobile monitor/recording station, KRR Online Heat Exchanger Cleaning equipment, and some 'before-and-after' examples of baghouse filters that have undergone the KRR Online Filter Bag Cleaning process.
Following the event, Robin said:
'All the services that KRR ProStream provides are focused on increasing availability and optimising energy production in power generating plant. Continuously monitoring performance is essential if this is to be achieved, and timely intervention with suitable cleaning technologies is always more cost-effective than allowing things to deteriorate to the level where a full shut down is required.
'Maintec was an excellent opportunity to explain how we analyse various key aspects of plant operations, and the cleaning technologies that we employ to restore lost performance were to view on our stand. We felt that the event was a great success and I hope that our contribution was interesting and informative for all attendees with a professional interest in the efficiency of power generating plant.'
