Thermal and Corrosion Monitoring Systems
As part of Drax power station’s long-term commitment to Rowan Technologies’ industrial monitoring systems, a corrosion and thermal scanner system is soon to be installed on the sidewalls of the Unit 4 boiler. Drax is continuing to convert its boilers to burn biomass rather than coal and the installation of the scanner coincides with the Unit 4 conversion process.
We are also developing a smaller and more-simplified version of our recently-updated portable scanner systems. This ultra-compact unit, again designed for periodic measurements, will be able to monitor two measurement areas simultaneously. Primary objectives for this system are ease of portability and set-up.
