Boiler cleaning

Purity steam quality is essential

Most new power plants based on thermal reaction nowadays produce steam to drive a steam turbine that generates electricity through a generator. The purity of the steam quality in this production process is essential. If the steam contains impurities, these can deposit on the turbine blades and disturb the turbine's balance.

Cleaning type

To guarantee good steam quality, the cleanliness of the entire steam and water cycle is of great importance. Depending on the phase the power plant is in, Vecom can perform the following types of cleaning:

  • Pre-commissioning
  • Post-commissioning (maintenance phase)
