The information found in this guide on proper pump selection and operation is essential for minimizing energy consumption and increasing overall plant efficiency, reliability, and profitability. Based on the equipment used in a typical 400 MW combined-cycle plant, this guide describes important details about the pump types used, offers guidance for proper selection of main and auxiliary service pumps, and describes the significance of proper operation of pumps in power plant service. This guide:

  • Identifies the styles of pumps used in combined-cycle power plants and provides recommendations for operating them at the highest efficiency and greatest reliability
  • Places an emphasis on boiler feed, boiler feed boosting, condensate, condenser circulating, boiler circulating, and heater drain pump applications
  • Describes the basic operation of combined-cycle plants and how to achieve increased uptime, availability, and reliability
  • Contains useful information about the materials of construction for main and auxiliary service pumps, pump mechanical seals and packing recommendations, and lubrication systems that are used for pumps in power plant applications.

Power Plant Pumps is an informative and valuable guide for engineers, designers, trainers, maintenance staff, and plant operators of combined-cycle power plants. HI Technical Director, Gregg Romanyshyn states that, “Pump specifiers, application engineers, and personnel responsible for the operation and maintenance of pumps used in power plant service will benefit from the information contained in this guideline and be able to make well informed decisions.  Experienced pump engineers, power plant specialists, pump users, and consultants contributed their combined knowledge in the development of this highly recommended resource.”
