Thermal and Corrosion Monitoring Systems
Yeungheung power plant, South Korea, has placed an order for a third scanner system and will be installed on the sidewalls of their Unit 6 supercritical boiler. The plant is located a short distance from Seoul, has six power generation units with a total generation capacity of around 5000 megawatts. The scanner will comprise 236 sensor locations covering all four boiler walls.
Work is soon to get underway to refurbish RTL's first commercial scanner system, installed on boiler Unit 1 at Drax power station, UK. This system was originally installed in 2001 and continues to provide valuable tube wall corrosion data. This work will extend the life of this system for another four years.
