Replacement Parts/Performance Upgrades
B&W provides quality parts, components and system upgrades for a wide range of plant equipment.
Steam Generation Systems
Boiler Pressure Parts and Non-Pressure Parts
B&W provides modifications, improvements and in-kind replacements of pressure parts and non-pressure parts including:
B&W continually develop new technologies, upgrades, replacement parts, and inventory management programs to improve reliability and performance, and to reduce operating and maintenance costs of our B&W Roll Wheel and E/EL pulverizers, as well as CE-type mills.
All parts, materials and upgrades are engineered and manufactured to the original specifications to ensure proper fit and performance. We have extensive experience in grinding all types and blends of coals. In addition, we provide other user benefits such as technical support services, our Assured Stock Program® inventory management system, and other customer-focused programs to help you get the most out of your grinding equipment.
Combustion system firing equipment
B&W provides low NOx coal, oil, natural gas and industrial process gas firing equipment. Our complete overfire air systems are designed for your operating conditions, fuels and furnace envelope. With an integrated system design approach, benefits include optimized, low maintenance operational and environmental performance.
Lower fuel and operating costs. Lower parasitic power consumption. Reduced air emissions. These are just some of the results of improving overall plant efficiency.
Strategies to improve plant efficiency and heat rate should begin with a thorough analysis and review of current plant conditions. B&W provides plant owners and operators with a wide range of services and technologies to do this.
Heat Recovery Steam Generators
Building on more than 150 years of experience in steam generation, B&W combines our proven industry experience and expertise in thermal technology to provide advanced Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG) technologies. We provide reliable systems, upgrades and replacement components such as HARPs, headers, finned tubing and other pressure parts suitable for a wide range of combustion turbine applications.
The cost of natural gas makes fuel switching an attractive option for owners and operators
B&W’s natural gas conversion experience is proven: many power boiler owners and operators have successfully converted their existing units to 100 percent natural gas firing systems, significantly reducing annual fuel and plant operating costs.
B&W considers all the key issues when optimizing a unit, including understanding how boilers age, identifying the critical components, and determining the general types of changes and enhancements possible. These elements are then combined with operating experience and equipment condition assessment to develop an integrated strategic plan for each boiler and each component in the boiler.
Boiler Load Cycling
Most of these units were originally designed for base loaded operation and not designed to accommodate frequent on/off cycles. The stresses placed on the weld joints, headers, drums and attachments between expanding and contracting parts, can cause failures after a finite number of cycles.
Auxiliary Plant Equipment
To extend the life of your existing Diamond Power® equipment, our service centers are fully equipped for a wide range of services, from simple poppet valve rebuilds to complete sootblower refurbishment.
All factory-serviced rebuilds and exchanges carry the same warranty as if purchased new.
Ash and Material Handling
B&W provides high-performance parts and upgrades for its Allen-Sherman-Hoff® line of ash handling equipment, as well as most other brands. Inventory is maintained for a wide range of critical parts that include:
- Bottom ash components
- Fly ash components
- Piping and fittings
Emissions Control Equipment
Our broad range of experience and expertise in emissions control provides the insight necessary to evaluate, recommend and implement cost-effective solutions and replacement parts to improve performance of existing environmental systems.
Aging technology and lack of support from some original equipment manufacturers has resulted in lost productivity and reduced efficiency for many electrostatic precipitator systems. ESP products and services provided by B&W are designed with one goal in mind— to help keep your ESP functioning at peak performance.
B&W SPIG provides comprehensive, competitively priced spare and replacement parts for wet and dry cooling systems from a worldwide network of service locations on short notice. Highly qualified technicians, supported by advanced measuring instruments, inspect and test existing installations and advise on the most prudent course of action for improved operation. Detailed inspection reports with clear recommendations provide the operator with the confidence of working with us.
Assured Stock Program®
Assured Stock Program (ASP) inventory management allows you to tailor a plan which can incorporate a variety of components and B&W services. The program is adaptable, easily implemented and can incorporate additional B&W services such as component rebuilds and upgrades.
ASP applications can be tailored to your needs to include a variety of E/EL and B&W Roll Wheel® pulverizer components. The program reduces the overall cost of obtaining parts and components, while maintaining and improving power generation reliability and availability.
Strategic alliances can provide both short- and long-term benefits which result in operational and financial advantages. Partnering with Babcock & Wilcox for larger capital projects means you’ll receive the added benefit of working with a supplier who has the breadth of technical expertise and proven capabilities to provide solutions for virtually all boiler, auxiliary and environmental systems at a power plant.
