Leak detection in power stations

October 2016 Maintenance, Test & Measurement, Calibration

Instrotech has designed and developed an advanced acoustic leak detection system called Inspecta FFT, to detect boiler tube leaks in coal fired utilities as well as in oxygen plants and gasifiers.

This technology and equipment is now in use in power stations worldwide, where the early detection of tube leaks to reduce downtime and prevent consequential damage is vital. According to the World Coal Association, the importance of coal to electricity generation worldwide is set to continue, with coal fuelling 44% of global electricity in 2030. (Source IEA 2010).

The Inspecta installed base includes power stations in South Africa, Germany, Australia, Turkey, India, Malaysia and China. Authorised distributors in these countries are on hand to provide all the services required to provide high levels of pre and post-sales support as well as any spare parts required to keep the systems running efficiently.
