innoSENSE non-invasive instrumentation continuosly determines local temperatures at critical locations, such as headers and tubes of heat recovery steam generators.
This is crucial while estimating real fatigue damage at the acutal plant operating conditions. On the contrary, the conventional process instrumentation available in combined cycle power plants is insufficient at this same purpose; therefore, fatigue damage accumulation can be significantly overestimated, thus bringing to anticipated interventions and unnecessary expenditure.
innoSENSE determines tube-by-tube temperature differences within a given harp, thus allowing precise local fatigue computation instead of global estimates like those based on cycle counting.
