Boiler Steam Lines
Maverick Inspection was contracted to scan the steam lines at a large power generation facility. The survey was an integral part of the early implementation of an energy conservation plan. Poorly insulated lines were identified throughout the plant. Heat loss was evident even on lines that had been re-insulated as recently as 2 years prior to inspection. In this image, poor or damaged insulation is apparent on the U-bend of the upper line and on the right-hand portion of the lower line. With the rising costs of fuel, energy efficiency has become a greater priority for industry.
