By: Sherri L Hart
Generating organizations will experience the same unsurpassed high quality boiler inspection services UDC is known for throughout the industry underpinnning the educated and fully-trained HRSG/Natural Gas division. This team of inspectors meets all qualification requirements for HRSG units. The majority of the HRSG Assessment Team members are Level I or Level II in UT, MT, PT, Phased Array, and Shear Wave NDE services. The manager of the HRSG Assessment division is a former National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors “Commissioned Inspector” with more than 25 years of marine/ fossil fired boilers and unfired pressure vessel inspection experience along with more than 4 years working in the aftermarket department as the senior inspector for a major HRSG OEM.
Periodic HRSG inspections are required to identify underlying problems with original design, operational tendencies, and hidden conditions that may contribute to future damage and failure.
UDC recommends HRSG assessments should be performed annually, by an independent, qualified professional company dedicated to the power generation industry, prolonging the useful life of HRSGs, and has no financial interest in the scope of recommended repairs. President and Chief Operating Officer, Jon S. Cavote stated "This truly is a bright and enlightening time for UDC. We continue our quest for meeting industry demands & needs, and are thrilled to bring our HRSG/Natural Gas division to the table"
UDC services include, but are not limited to external inspections (cold & hot walk downs), gas path & water side inspections, waterside and attemperator inspections utilizing a videoscope, detailed Flow Accelerated Corrosion (FAC) assessment of piping and critical components, full line of NDE services, and Technical Advisor services during planned & un-planned outages .
The experience is in place. The boiler assessors are certified. The scheduling load is measured. The reports are real-time and on-time. The same high quality commitment to consistency that propelled UDC to rise to the top in ratings for boiler inspection is the core of the foundation in the new HRSG division.
The UDC team is geared up to assist the industry and clients in the overall health of boilers, optimizing every unit. As the demand to do more with less continues, the necessity for true, proven best practices in maintenance programs, operation, and data cross-referencing of all areas across the plant will play a key role in the future of every unit. Together, the maintenance of these units will equip them to provide power today as well as merge into the role of cleaner power for tomorrow.
