Energy technology is undergoing global transformation. Rapidly expanding renewable energy and other, more volatile power generation plants require significantly higher flexibility of conventional plants. This has resulted in a number of new challenges for ventilation equipment, including:
- An increased number of start and stop operations
- Fewer full-load hours
- Increased partial load operation
- Lower exhaust gas temperatures due to residual heat utilization
- Smaller gap to acid dew point
These factors cause an increased load on the systems which carries increased risk of corrosion during operation. This favors dew point corrosion, which can lead to total failure of fans and system components.
TLT-Turbo offers you a tailor-made solution for your plant by implementing effective corrosion protection measures to maintain uptime of your fans.
Efficient Protection against Corrosion
TLT-Turbo Corrosion Protection for fans includes two key actions: Preventing corrosion where possible and protecting components where corrosion cannot be prevented.
Avoiding corrosive conditions:
- Preventing or reducing leakage of sealing air
- Heating of fan components
- Optimization of insulation
Use of corrosion resistant materials:
- Weather resistant steel
- Polymers and polymeric coatings
- Stainless steel
- Ni-based coatings or base materials
In order to select the measures suitable to preventing and addressing corrosion on fans operating at your facility, TLT-Turbo conducts an individual corrosion risk assessment. This assessment is based on your operational and environmental conditions.
TLT-Turbo provides further support by conducting an analysis of your specific operating conditions, e.g. on a dew point measurement based on a plant inspection.
Contact TLT-Turbo to discuss your corrosion protection needs and to find the right service package to suit your on-going requirements.
Optimal Protection against Corrosion for Existing Plants
TLT-Turbo conducts corrosion risk assessments and implements suitable preventative measures when designing and manufacturing new fans. These measures can also be carried out when retrofitting existing plants or as part of preventative maintenance during a scheduled shutdown.
Contact your service representative or the TLT-Turbo Service Department for more information on conducting a tailored risk assessment at your facility.
