FEATURED TECHNOLOGY

Reliability Comes Standard

INTEGRATED PETROCHEMICAL – The first fully integrated petrochemical complex in Southeast Asia, IRPC is located in an industrial area of Rayong, Thailand, with energy and sea port operations to support the area’s businesses. A subsidiary of Global Power Synergy PCL, IRPC Clean Power Company, Ltd., (IRPC CP) owns and operates a cogeneration plant that produces and sells steam and electrical power. To meet all requirements of a high-capacity, factory built unit, B&W engineered and delivered an elevated three-drum
water-tube boiler.

Water-tube package boiler
With more than 5000 units and 150 years of experience, our water-tube package and industrial boilers have an established reputation for reliability and proven performance in a wide range of industries and applications.

Finding the Root Cause of Boiler Tube Failures

Have you ever repaired a boiler tube leak, put the unit back into service, only to be forced offline by another leak?

Identifying and correcting the root cause of tube failures is essential to help lessen the chance of future problems. A comprehensive assessment is the most effective method of determining the root cause of a failure.

CO Boilers Primer
CO Boilers Primer

In the hydrocarbon processing industry, the operation of a fluid catalytic cracking unit (FCCU), depending on its arrangement, produces gases rich in carbon monoxide (CO). To reclaim the energy in these gases, the FCCU can be designed to include a CO boiler to generate steam.

This article provides an overview of CO boiler design criteria, firing requirements and operation.

Boiler Operations That Affect Efficiency (Part 1)

Optimizing boiler and steam system efficiency is more important than ever. Although a boiler’s efficiency is primarily a result of its design, an operator can maintain or significantly improve efficiency by effectively managing various techniques and key functions.

Read Part 1 of this two-part series which discusses operating techniques.

TRENDING TOPICS

Powering Africa

Estimates show that more than 50% of Sub-Saharan Africa does not have access to electricity. Collaborators, like B&W and Power Africa, in-country and around the world are teaming together to provide citizens with increased access to reliable, affordable and sustainable power.

We’re proud to support the region with solutions to cleanly generate steam using sustainable, local fuels.

Boiler Cleaning

To maximize the thermal efficiency of any boiler and maintain flue gas temperatures, it is important to regularly remove ash deposits that accumulate on heat transfer surfaces. Online cleaning prevents the blockage and plugging of gas passages in the boiler and supports the optimum operation of air emissions control equipment.

Our Diamond Power® sootblower product line has the industry's most complete portfolio of boiler cleaning equipment and diagnostic services for a wide variety of applications and budgets.

Construction Services

B&W is a single-source turnkey supplier of a full range of field construction, construction management and maintenance services. Our extensive experience with a wide range of projects — from large, complex projects to small unanticipated quick turnaround repair needs — gives us the depth of knowledge and responsiveness necessary to safely deliver dependable services of any size at any facility.
