This is a West Midlands Branch event organised and hosted by the West Midlands Branch Committee on behalf of Branch members. Other members are very welcome to register for this talk.
Overview: The presentation covers some of Uniper’s experience with management and repair of damaged Grade 91 and Grade 22 components operating in the creep range.
Due to the flexibility required from Energy Producers, Many component experience a high number of starts and shutdowns over a relatively small number of hours.
This causes a variety of problems in header systems, bypass valves and high temperature pipework. There are various options available for managing, repairing and replacing these components.
The presentation covers some examples of the factors influencing the options available for management and weld repair of damaged components.
