Tube Condition Assessment &
Material Evaluations

Obtain a recommendation of the optimum retubing material selection after a review of resistance to existing & potential tube failure mechanisms including fluid-elastic vibration. Schedule and cost estimates are coupled with an accurately calculated material thermal performance of each metal to present a clear impact of total evaluated costs for each option (capital and performance). Other items such as galvanic compatibility and compatibility with available circulating water system data and recent water quality datum are checked based on customer supplied datum.

Condenser Retubing Options & Alternatives
Obtain a comparison of the impact on performance and O&M of a one-for-one retubing to sleeving/lining, modular rebundling, and partial retubing.
-Estimated cost of each alternative w/installation schedule
-Weighing site-specific advantages/disadvantages of each option in terms of thermal performance, maintenance, vibration, hydraulic and corrosion resistance
-Comparison to "Do Nothing" Option that captures current O&M
