Boiler steam drum level control is critical in electrical power generation. Too high a level can mean water aspirating into the steam lines and causing damage to the turbine generator blades downstream. Too low a level can cause the boiler to dry and overheat. In a Power magazine article, Controlling Boiler Level When Operating Conditions […]

When you hear discussions about “the cloud” you often also hear about “the edge” where higher resolution processing can be performed. For manufacturers and producers, this edge may extend to the instrumentation itself measuring and controlling the process. In a Control Engineering IIoT for Engineers supplement article, Extend edge data gathering with multivariable instruments, Emerson’s […]

A NACE International paper, HRSG Tube Failures: Prediction, Diagnosis and Corrective Actions highlights the challenge of these failures: Many HRSGs were originally designed for base load operation. Recent economic factors have led to drastically increased cycling of many units. This has exacerbated the rate of failures. These leaks can lead to forced outages that create […]
