What you'll learn

  • How to describe how corrosion affects various systems within a power plant
  • How to identify causes and discuss means employed to control corrosion.
Course Description

 When you finish this lesson, you will be able to describe how corrosion affects various systems within a steam production facility and explain how to detect common failures caused by excessive corrosion. In addition, you’ll be able to identify causes and discuss means employed to control corrosion. • Identify types of water treatment programs and discuss their goals • Describe the cause and effect of corrosion in the following: – Pre-boiler or feedwater system – Boiler system – Condensate system • Explain the steps facilities take to control or eliminate corrosion in the water and steam path • Explain how corrosion can be minimized by identifying condenser tube leaks through chemical analysis of steam plant water • Describe how boiler chemistry control can reduce the adverse effects of condenser tube leaks
