Intek, Inc.'s RheoVac Diagonistic System continuously monitors condenser air in-leak problems. This system provides information for assessing condenser exhauster pumping capacity that can affect turbine back pressure, and therefore increase heat rate.
This monitor installs in the vacuum line between the condenser and the exhauster (pump or air ejector). Four primary variables are sensed to provide true air in-leak mass flow rate measurement along with eight other gas property outputs. The data from this system can be combined with other plant data for analysis of the whole condenser/exhauster system, including measurement of exhaust gas subcooling as a function of load and exhauster performance changes.
The RheoVac sensing probe comes with complete installation hardware. The microprocessor-based electronics transmitter has an air in-leak display (in SCFMs). Ten measured gas properties are provided in analog and digital output signals for remote recording and display.
