Steam Handling

By Chemical Engineering |

Sodium-ion monitoring can prevent steam-turbine corrosion Studies have shown that sodium is one of the most significant contributors to corrosion within turbines, and that such corrosion leads to cracking, embrittlement and ultimately, turbine failure. The Orion Ionplus 2111LL low-level sodium monitor is used to track sodium-ion concentrations of steam and other pure-water circuits within the power industry. Readings are stable to 0.01 ppb (parts per billion) Na+, even if samples differ in temperature by 50°C. Over the temperature range of 0–100°C, the measurements are three to five times more accurate than those obtained with conventional electrodes, according to the manufacturer. — Thermo Electron Corp., Beverly, Mass. edlinks.chemengonline.com/5828-431   Use the Internet to keep track of steam traps Launched last December, SteamStar is said to be the first Web-based steam-trap measurement platform. SteamStar allows users to continuously track, measure and manage their steam traps via the Internet. The system works by displaying stram-trap information on a website that collects data from manual steam-trap surveys, hand-held diagnostic tools or through steam traps that are equipped with wireless transmitters.…
