  • Recovering performance loss due to air binding case study

    In 2007 Intek was presented with an opportunity to study an underperforming Ingersoll Rand condenser, and plan a program for increasing performance via engineered retrofit. The primary objectives for the condenser study were to find a means to mitigate ongoing load limiting conditions in the summer time due to high condenser pressure and to improve chronic poor condenser performance, which had ...

  • Unveiling root causes of chemistry and performance problems by putting condensers under a microscope

    Abstract The results obtained from Condenser Monitoring Systems installed at multiple operating units are presented. The Condenser Monitoring System is comprised of unique measurement instruments that eliminate the need to make several assumptions necessary to measure condenser performance for comparison with design predictions. These direct comparisons unveil root cause issues ...

  • A connection between cycle chemistry and condenser configuration: part II

    Abstract Air in-leakage into the steam space of a condenser can become stored in pockets of high partial pressures that negatively impact condenser performance and become a source of dissolved gases in the feedwater. These pockets can be configuration caused and generally cannot be eliminated by reducing air ingress or increasing venting capacity. Fortunately, engineering designs are ...
