BOILER STEAM FLOW DISTRIBUTION
The evaporative platens gave many operational issues including header cracking causing unnecessary and costly down time due to maintenance. Simulations were required to predict the effects of removing the platens within the boilers. The simulation had to point out the new steam flow distribution based on the design changes and also any new possible hot spots on the tubes due to poor flow through the remaining water walls and super heater tubes.
