POWER PLANT SERVICE

As a specialist company for boiler and feed water treatment, we specialize in the use of film-forming amines. With our ODACON® technologies and our experienced service team, we support our customers throughout the entire life cycle of the power plant. Our services include:

  • Boiling and blowing out of boiler systems

  • Preservation of systems for short and long-term downtimes

  • Cleaning of turbines, heat exchangers, etc.

BENEFITS OF OUR ODACON® PRODUCTS

  • the reduction of commissioning times

  • the low chemical, water and energy consumption

  • the excellent corrosion protection during operation as well as for short and long-term downtimes

BOILER BOILING AND BLOWING OUT

When boiling with ODACON®, as with alkaline boiling, rust film and loose iron oxide layers are dissolved, dust and fine-grained sand are suspended and oils and fats are emulsified.

The rolling and glow scale remains largely intact and is integrated into the protective layer that forms during subsequent operation. For this reason, the surfaces are not pickled to a metallically bright finish.

The process follows the specifications of the VGB guideline R513 for weakly alkaline boiling. Boiling is thus possible parallel to the dry heating program. The exact schedule is created individually for the respective system characteristics and is based on the time specifications, the fill water quality and temperature as well as the technical data of the boiler system.

BENEFITS OF OUR ODACON® PRODUCTS

  • the high cleaning effect even at a neutral pH value

  • the protective layer that forms during the process and protects the system from corrosion until it is put into operation

  • the shortening of the cleaning time and a reduction in the blow-out processes

  • the elimination of time-consuming neutralization processes of the cleaning waste water

  • the use of environmentally friendly chemicals

  • the reduced consumption of energy and water for the cleaning process

TURBINE CLEANING WITH ODACON®

Even when using fully desalinated feed water, deposits of chlorides, sulfates, sodium or silicates can form on the turbine blades. These result in efficiency losses and can lead to damage to the turbine. In order to remove these deposits, the turbines are mechanically cleaned.

This process can only be carried out when the machine is at a standstill and is very expensive.

Chemical cleaning processes with acids or alkalis can lead to corrosion and embrittlement of the base material.

With the turbine cleaning process developed by us, the deposits are gently washed off the surface without the addition of aggressive acids and the base material is not damaged.

Cleaning can take place during operation or when the system is shut down. With the use of our process, effective cleaning is guaranteed and the downtime of the system is reduced.

PRESERVATION WITH THE ODACON PROCESS

Conventional plants for generating electricity from fossil fuels are increasingly facing new challenges. Coal-fired large-scale power plants have to cope with flexible load requirements, longer running times in low and part-load operation as well as short or long-term downtimes.

On the other hand, larger reserve capacities must be kept available for short-term needs, which are available as quickly as possible.

​ Due to operational reasons, industrial steam generators can also have frequent downtimes
come. Also systems of municipal heat or power supply
are taken out of service as needed.
In order to protect these systems from corrosion during downtime,
we have a flexibly applicable and cost-effective preservation process
developed

ADVANTAGES OF OUR ODACON® PRESERVATION

  • Protection of the entire circuit including the steam and condensate system or individual components

  • Extension of the service life of the components and piping systems by more than 50% compared to non-preserved materials

  • no time-consuming depreservation when restarting

  • Reduction in the entry of corrosion products into the steam generator when it is put into operation again

  • Reduction of commissioning times

  • high protective effect when filled and (partially) emptied

  • no re-dosing or additional measures required

  • Conservation of the system during operation or in the shutdown process
