Inappropriate chemical properties of water can cause formation of scale, deposits and corrosion on the water side, thus impairing or even disabling the intended function of power plants. The properties of the materials used play a key role in this context.
TÜV SÜD services:
Support regarding the adaptation and improvement of the chemical operation of water/ steam circuits in power plants with respect to formation of protective layers, corrosion behaviour, selection of materials
Physical and chemical investigations of operational parameters through on-line measurement of oxygen, sodium, hydrogen and conductivity
Complex failure analyses with the involvement of experts, based on the key criteria of uninterrupted operation such as medium influences, material behaviour and operating factors
Development of suitable plant optimisation measures
