Upgrading Your Feedwater Heater Level Controls: Is It Worth It?

A global outlook for the installed base of coal-fired and, to some degree, nuclear power generation can leave decision makers staring into a crystal ball when deciding whether or not to pursue investments in technologies that improve feedwater heater level control and ultimately plant efficiency (heat rate), while significantly reducing maintenance cost.

Ensuring Level Measurement Accuracy in Saturated Steam Applications

A main advantage of Guided Wave Radar (GWR) over other level measurement technologies is the fact that it is immune to a variety of process conditions. Specific gravity changes, dielectric constant changes, temperature, pressure and vapor space changes all have virtually no effect on the performance of GWR transmitters.
