Corrosion greatly impacts the reliability and availability as well as operation and maintenance costs of power plants -- making it a necessity to monitor and control corrosion causing ions and corrosion product transport using reliable analytical techniques. Degassed cation conductivity may not be adequate to ensure compliance with anion steam guidelines and in many cases the turbine warranty requirements. Stephen Shulder, EPRI’s Senior Technical Leader in Boiler and Turbine Steam and Cycle Chemistry explains the importance of optimizing water cycle chemistry. You will also learn about industry-leading sample preparation capabilities for complete corrosive species analysis and corrosion inhibitor monitoring.

Key Learning Objectives 
  • Hear Steve Shulder present example case studies from EPRI 
  • Analysis of film forming amines (FFAs) in power plant water cycles 
  • Implementing selective and sensitive analytical methods for trace level determination of corrosive anions and iron species in water cycles 

Who Should Attend:

  • Power Plant chemists and lab managers from nuclear and fossil power plants 
  • Scientists and managers from industrial power plants & local utilities that are struggling with corrosion prevention and using corrosion inhibitors 
  • Anyone interested in implementing analysis methods for effective corrosion monitoring and prevention in power generation & transmission
