Moisture Problems during Turbine Storage/ Power Plant Layup
Moisture problems during Turbine Storage/ Power Plant Layup
Turbines are indispensable for power generation and like work. It is necessary to maintain Turbines and other equipment in prime condition while in operation and during storage. This enables smooth running of the turbines and also ensures that they are capable of going 'on-line' immediately post storage.
Uncontrolled Moisture single major cause of damage to turbines while in operation and during storage
Moisture however plays havoc with Turbines, Power Generators, Boilers, Condensers etc. These equipments begin to rust and corrode while in storage or while in operation.
Corrosion hinders smooth functioning of the turbine- decreases reliability
When the relative humidity crosses 40% mark corrosion is further accelerated as industrial pollutants like Sulphur Dioxide also contribute to rusting / corrosion.
Power Plant Layup
Power Generating equipment and Power Plants are shut down temporarily or for extended period
Nuclear Plants are shut down for a year for refueling. Fossil Fuel power stations need to be laid up for furnace or boiler repair. During this idle period it is necessary to feed dry air to decrease the chances of corrosion / rusting mentioned earlier.
Controlling Corrosion ... through Dehumidification
If the relative humidity of the area where expensive equipment is stored can be restricted below 40%, then all equipments like generator, turbines and their components can be maintained in well -preserved condition for immediate activation whenever required. Dehumidification prevents corrosion, mold and mildew growth and prevents deterioration of equipment.
Bry Air Dehumidifiers
Ensures Reliability and hassle free functioning.
Bry-Air Dehumidifiers enable smooth operation of turbines; ensure that it goes 'on line' immediately by restricting relative humidity in the area where expensive equipment is stored.
Bry-Air Desiccant Dehumidifier are capable of maintaining a RH as low as 1% or even lower at constant level, regardless of ambient conditions and thus maintain the ideal environmental conditions for Turbine Storage / Power Plant Layup.
Bry-Air Dehumidifiers offer the simplest and most cost-effective solution to moisture/humidity problems during Turbine Storage/ Power Plant Layup therby preventing costly repairs and emergency outage.
