In today’s industrial environment, data is abundant, but the knowledge and processes required to make use of that data is often difficult to obtain. With the limited time and resources available, it is essential that your learning be targeted to your plant, your equipment, and your issues. Neundorfer’s workshops, offered in a variety of locations over the course of a year, offer the opportunity to learn from a diverse group of industry experts as you work through your objectives, issues, and compliance concerns.

23rd Annual All User’s Conference
Our Joint Approach to Boiler Tube Failure Prevention course is an insightful informal class presentation examining the positive results in the identification process for prevention of tube failure occurrence utilizing the combination of “in-the-field” inspection and laboratory analysis of previously failed boiler tubes. Some of the topics include cycling the boiler, operational upsets and resulting damage, quench cracking from water lances/cannons, and direct strategies for approaching these problems. The effects of fuel changes, burner retrofits, i.e. fireside corrosion; causes, methods of prevention and acceptable repairs are also covered. Discussion of the importance of a good water chemistry program, acid phosphate corrosion, caustic corrosion/gouging, copper deposition, and hydrogen damage, as well as pitting, scale and water side contaminants; to include causes, prevention, and acceptable repairs are all part of the curriculum. Common boiler materials, fabrication, installation defects, graphitization, low temperature creep, and boiler lay-up procedures are also included among the topics. This seminar is a must for maintenance personnel as well as operators and plant managers to provide knowledge for implementation of strategic failure prevention maintenance solutions based on conclusive findings reported through metallurgical analysis for failed tubes.

Introduction to Large Thermal Power Generation Plants
“Introduction to Large Thermal Power Generation Plants,” a 3-day continuing education course, focuses on large, field-erected steam generators with a 500,000 to 7 million pounds per hour steam-generation rate. It will provide you with a wealth of information in power generation and 16 Professional Development Hours (PDHs).
Topics include steam generation and boiler fundamentals, large utility coal boilers, boiler design, low NOx burners, combustion airflow minimums, and power generation economics, to list only a few. This is a terrific introductory level course for any person with interest in energy and electric power generation. A very unique and comprehensive course covering three days (July 17-19). About 50% classroom and 50% Field tours of five power plants (Including the Williamson Energy Island).
