Managing Thermal Quench at Power Plants
Posted: 2019-4-26Attemperation equipment is necessary to control steam temperatures at many power plants. However, when the equipment functions improperly or the design is flawed, thermal quenching/shock can damage piping. Proper inspections and sound engineering evaluations can identify problems, allowing corrections to be implemented before failure occurs.
Most large combined cycle power plants are equipped with steam attemperation equipment to control temperatures below design limits during normal operation an...Read More.

Webinar: Robotic Inspection April 23
Posted: 2019-4-20Making sure the pipelines that serve the oil, gas, petrochemical, and other industries are sound is critically important but not easy. Until now, operators have had only one option—send people into the field to inspect for corrosion, leaks, structural damage, and wear. Today, crawler robots and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) offer a way to inspect pipelines thoroughly, more frequently, and more affordably.
ASME's webinar, Inspection Robots: Pipeline Leaks, at 2:00 pm Eastern on April 23 will feature two ...Read More.
