Steam Boiler Performance Test

TGPS has conducted thermal performance evaluation of fired boilers around the world.

We have experience with boilers using solid (coal, coal derivatives or biomass), liquid fuel or gas fuel.

To conduct the evaluation of Coal Plants we follow the ASME PTC 4 Protocols and similar.

Our company has in stock large amounts of high-precision testing instrumentation to measure the main parameters around fired boilers and steam turbines.

The typical parameters of interest to calculate for contractual purposes are:

  • Corrected Boiler Efficiency

  • Steam Production

  • Water Consumption

  • Auxiliary Electrical Consumption

  • Steam Turbine Efficiency

  • Condenser Performance (ACC, Water-cooled condenser)

It is important to intimately understand your start-up and shutdown costs per unit. TGPS has physically measured data to determine these values in power plants around the world. For fired boilers the cold, warm and hot start conditions are evaluated.

Using all this information, you can take smart decisions for investment and maintenance purposes.

For fired boilers, TGPS offers  testing for:

  • Contractual Acceptance Performance Test (New Units / Upgrades)

  • Power Plant Performance Audit Programs

  • Power Plant Diagnostic Performance Test

  • Periodic Power Plant Performance Test

  • Before and After Performance Test

  • Start-Up and Shutdown Test

In addition to the above tests, TGPS can conduct the emissions test and acoustic test on coal plants and coal boilers
