COOLED DESUPERHEATING AT MARCHWOOD

THE PROBLEM

  • HRSG final desuperheaters (HP & IP) failing in service
  • Life expectancy < 12 months
  • Expensive to replace and overhaul
  • High cost due to plant unavailability

THE SOLUTION

  • High quality, well engineered desuperheaters
  • Protected by a steam cooled jacket
  • Life expectancy > 12 YEARS!

The problem for James Brown, the Mechanical Engineer at Marchwood Power Station, was that the desuperheater valves installed would fail on average once a year leading to plant unavailability with all the obvious associated costs and some less obvious engineering issues.

James had worked with AVS on a previous project so had confidence in our engineers. He’d also had a positive experience of Hora valves elsewhere at Marchwood.

The installed desuperheaters were replaced with Hora cooled desuperheaters each protected by a unique steam cooled jacket.

The inspection cycle for the desuperheaters is now > 6 years and replacement is now > 12 years. Project payback was 1 year.

To understand more about the Marchwood Hora cooled desuperheater project and how the cost savings and payback were calculated please call Rik Barry on 0161 242 1355.
