Paper Abstract

The ALL-RED Project was developed to evaluate the use of IR thermography in three specific new areas: condenser air-in leakage; condenser tube leaks; and boiler casing leaks. These areas have plagued the utility industry by causing unscheduled downtime, increasing maintenance costs, and creating performance difficulties. Developing techniques that include: establishing specific methods of detection for each application; preparing guidelines for a program structure, technical approach, and cost benefit; as well as organizing a training program, will further enhance the use of this versatile technology and help utilities reduce down time and maintenance costs through condition monitoring using advanced IR Thermography techniques.
