BOILER HEADER CRACKING

As part of the repowering of a power station Steinmüller is tasked with the optimization of the boiler sub-system. This included a study to determine the reasons for regular Platen Evaporator header cracking. Platen Evaporator Header cracking in the boiler can cause unnecessary and costly down time due to maintenance of the power plant. Steinmüller used Flownex® to dynamically simulate the flow and heat transfer over the platen evaporator and determine the possible reasons for header cracking.
