Swapan Basu, Ajay Kumar Debnath, in Power Plant Instrumentation and Control Handbook, 2015. 18.104.22.168 Requirements of Condensate Polishing Unit. Boiler pressure is the key factor for determining the requirement of a CPU system (see Figure II/3.6.6-1).For the steam generator plant with low steam pressure (below 40 kg/cm 2), the requirement of a condensate polishing unit is usually avoided.
The HP preheater is used in a power plant cycle process to preheat feed water in the high-pressure area between the boiler feed pump and the evaporator inlet. Preheating increases the inlet temperature of the feedwater into the steam boiler. This relieves the pressure on the boiler, as it requires less energy to evaporate the process water.
When coal-fired electric power generation was at its zenith in the last century, chemists and researchers learned many lessons about the precise water/steam chemistry control guidelines needed to protect units from corrosion, scaling and fouling that can cause loss of heat transfer and equipment failure.
