Heavy fuel oil (HFO) is often used in thermal power plants. But, contaminant metals and high sulfur levels can cause operational challenges, such as corrosion and ash fouling. Prevent these problems by using our combustion performance fuel additives. Our additives combined with Baker Hughes BASTION™ fuel treatment services optimize performance for industrial or utility power generation in thermal power plants.
Ensure cost-effective power generation
High-temperature corrosion in furnaces occurs from high vanadium levels while high sulfur levels cause cold-end corrosion. Slagging impacts heat transfer in boilers, and ash fouling blocks air preheaters. These problems diminish plant efficiency and increase maintenance costs.
Our treatments ensure cost-effective power generation when using crude and HFOs. By optimizing the additive treat rate, you’ll maximize performance and efficiency at minimal cost.
