Why we all profit from regular cleaning of powerplants

That maintenance and cleansing on a regular basis ensures a better lifespan is nothing new ofcourse . Still we often experience at Vecom that companies economize and cut costs on the maintenance of their (client’s) powerplants. A choice that in the long run, can have tremendous consequences.

Therefore keeping the steamquality high is key. A positive extra to pre-commissioning cleaning is not unimportant too. This treatment gives the boiler a magnetite layer at the waterside that will make sure that it is fully passivated. This will prevent new corrosion in the boiler in the long run.

The 3 main reasons to clean your powerplant

  1. To prevent contaminated particles in the steam. If they are present and travel through the turbine, they can cause damages. Or worse, the turbine can get out of balance and cause accidents.
  2. To prevent air-pollution and remove atmospheric pollution.
  3. To clean the material from (fly) rust, corrosion and extent light grease.

How to save money and time on your project

Time is money. Choose chemical cleaning by Vecom and accelerate the commissioning of your powerplant, while keeping your highest steamquality possible. Count your profits: with our chemical cleaning process you will shorten the amount of days necessary for steamblow with twothird of the time. Furthermore you will also need to use less gas and demi-water.
