For Boiler Leak Detection, our analytics software called LeakAlert can detect boiler tube leaks upto 1% of boiler feedwater flow rate. It is based on the principle of mass balance or acoustic detection. Depending on the site conditions, one of these methods is used.
- It can help the plant personnel make an informed decision if a shut down is required or not.
- In most cases, the average payback time is less than one year.
- The operators can set up Monitor or Alert alarms or emails, for specific actions.
- It takes 4-8 weeks to install mass balance LeakAlert in a Windows PC at a site with no shut down required.
- The acoustic system installation takes the same amount of time but a shut down maybe required.
Depending on availability, some typical process inputs that LeakAlert uses for Boiler Leak Detection to work accurately are:
- BFW & Steam flow rate
- Drum water chemistry
- Firebox temperature & pressure
- Fuel & air flow rate
- ID fan power consumption
- Stack temperature
