After the installation of a new unit, foreign matter and debris remaining in steam lines must be removed to adhere to equipment start-up warranties as well as increase equipment longevity, ensure safety, and improve overall reliability of the plant. This requires expert precision backed by sound engineering procedures to prevent damage to plant systems during start-up.
Controlled thermal cycling and high-velocity steam produced during steam blows effectively “shocks” the pipe, breaking mill scale and weld slag from the pipe wall. This requires precise control of steam temperature at higher than normal operating conditions, and should be performed only by experienced, professional crews.
B&W Energy Services performs engineering and execution of steam blows on both small projects and the largest, most complex projects in the world. We have successfully performed steam blows from California to Kazakstan, from Vietnam to Brazil, from the Netherlands to Australia, and Ghana to Qatar and the largest steam system ever constructed in a single project, Shell Pearl GTL.
