EP-13 PAGE 1 RECOMMENDED TUBESIDE CLEANING PROCEDURE

Nooter/Eriksen recommends the use of an experienced cleaning contractor for this service. The cleaning contractor should inspect the HRSG and develop a cleaning procedure for the owner’s review. Nooter/Eriksen recommends that the cleaning procedure shall include steps for each area listed under Section 2: Hand cleaning, Organic material removal and Chemical scale removal. This section contains general information and suggestions that may be used as an aid to evaluate a contractor's procedure or monitor the cleaning and should not be interpreted as an endorsement of any particular type of cleaning. Improper cleaning of the HRSG surfaces or the complete omission of cleaning can result in poor performance and potential damage to the boiler. The HRSG tube/pipe side surface must be thoroughly and properly cleaned prior to being placed in initial service. Periodic review of the cleanliness of the boiler is required as outlined in IV of the N/E O&M Manual. 1.0 General The primary function of cleaning the tubeside is to provide a clean, uniform surface for passivation. Passivation is the buildup of a protective magnetite layer on wetted surfaces. This layer protects the inner surfaces from corrosion during operation. Oil, grease and rust can prevent or cause uneven buildup and flaking of the protective magnetite layer during operation. These contaminants must be removed before operation. The option to inspect the unit prior to chemically cleaning should be offered to all potential contractors. Lack of pre-inspection may result in an insufficient and/or inefficient cleaning solution being utilized. Improper solutions can significantly add to the circulation time required for cleaning. Prior to commencement of a chemical clean for the HRSG, the following systems/controls must be in proper operation in order to insure boiler safeguards:      All HRSG alarms, trips, and interlocks All pressure parts have been installed and hydro-tested All insulation has been installed Suitable connections to all vents and drains have been installed and are routed to avoid potential hazards Gas turbine has been readied for operation

the chemical cleaning to insure that damaging contaminants do not enter the system. CAUTION: THE CLEANING SOLUTION MUST BE COMPLETELY REMOVED FROM ALL THE INTERNAL SURFACES TO PREVENT DAMAGE. Scale removal will be inhibited if oil and grease are present. An alkaline cleaning should be performed prior to the scale/deposit removal phase of the cleaning. There are also mechanical means of deposit removal available for accessible tubes, such as in the evaporator. These include high pressure water lances and pull through scrapers. 2.4 General HRSG Steam Blow Procedures Theory In order to insure a clean steam path after initial erection from the evaporator sections of the HRSG to the terminal points, it is necessary to instigate a thorough cleaning procedure. In general, this is accomplished through a steam blow, air blow, or a combination chemical clean/ steam (air) blow. A steam blow procedure entails passing high velocity steam through the steam path in order to generate a sufficient cleaning ratio (CR). The cleaning ratio is defined as the ratio of the product of the density () and the square of the steam velocity (V) at the steam blow conditions to the same product at the design base load conditions.

CR 

(  V 2 ) steam blow (  V 2 ) design

The shear force generated on the tube walls is proportional to the velocity head of the flowing fluid through the pipe network. Therefore, the larger the cleaning ratio the larger the shear force (i.e. the better the cleaning of the tube walls). A cleaning ratio greater than 1.1 is normally required in power boilers to insure adequate cleaning of all steam path surfaces. Occasionally a lower value may be acceptable for low pressure systems but 1.0 should be considered the absolute minimum. It is apparent that a low pressure (high specific volume) fluid will result in the minimization of the actual amounts of water

EP-13 PAGE 4 RECOMMENDED TUBESIDE CLEANING PROCEDURE

required while helping to generate the largest velocity head. Therefore, it is desirable to utilize a low pressure fluid when performing a steam path cleaning. One should note the importance that all legs of the steam path need to be subjected to proper cleaning ratios. The variable geometry throughout the steam path will require the calculation of several cleaning ratios. Steam Blow When the combustion turbine is available, a steam blow is typically performed. The combustion turbine is generally utilized as the heat source for the boiler to generate the required capacity of steam. There are two general categories of steam blows - intermittent and continuous. Intermittent Blows Intermittent steam blows involve the building up of pressure in the appropriate steam drum to a predetermined upper value and then opening a quick acting steam blow valve at the end of the piping network to generate a high velocity steam by flashing water in the drum. When the drum pressure returns to the lower calculated pressure level (minimum for cleaning ratio required), the steam blow valve is closed to repressurize the drum and the sequence repeated. An intermittent blow is generally favored over a continuous blow when insufficient make up water capacity is available for a continuous blow. The required purging sequence of an intermittent blow, which may require as many as 100 cycles, generally makes the intermittent blow a more costly procedure in means of time and man-hours. Continuous Blows Continuous blows involve operating the boiler at a reduced pressure for a continuous period of time. The reduced pressure generates a large specific volume (high velocity) flow that passes through the steam path on a continual basis. A sacrificial valve is generally utilized at the terminal point of the temporary steam blow piping for maintaining required pressure. By eliminating the cyclic sequencing of an intermittent blow, the required time and subsequent man-hours may be significantly reduced for a continuous blow. However, a continuous blow requires that large amounts of treated water be available for usage. It is not uncommon to empty a large storage tank during the course of a four-hour continuous blow.

EP-13 PAGE 5 RECOMMENDED TUBESIDE CLEANING PROCEDURE

Note: Steam blows may still be performed even though the combustion turbine is unavailable. In this event, a sufficient auxiliary boiler must be utilized to generate the required steam (flow, temperature and pressure). 2.5 HRSG Operation for Steam Blowing The intent of this section is to present general information pertaining to operation of the Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG) during the steam blow process. The guidelines and advice provided are for information purposes only and the party responsible for the HRSG cleaning is advised to seek the services/advice of a qualified cleaning professional. The HRSG and the plant design will have an impact on the decisions to be made concerning the steam line cleaning. Many of these issues are operational in nature and several are highlighted below for consideration when developing a site specific steam blow procedure. Combustion Turbine (CT) Loads Most steam blows can be accomplished at gas turbine loads below 30%. The turbine should be operated with the guide vanes wide open. This maximizes the exhaust flow and steam flow and minimizes the exhaust temperature and fuel usage. If multiple pressure systems are to be blown at once, significantly higher CT loads are generally required. Sometimes the steam from one HRSG will be used to blow common steam line piping in cases where the steam from two HRSG's that go to one steam turbine. The ideal scenario would be to identically operate each HRSG. For units with duct burners, a higher CT load is generally required. Steam Drum Water Levels Water level must be maintained in all steam drums during a steam blow to prevent damage. These systems are not designed to run dry.

When a continuous blow is utilized. This is equivalent to an ammonia concentration of about 0. Water Quality / Water Chemistry The quality of water used for steam blows should be the same quality as the water intended for normal operation. the flashing nature of an intermittent steam blow will generate very large swings in drum level. However. In this case a wet lay-up may be used. This water should be as clean as possible to avoid chemical deposition in piping and coil sections. Consult the N/E O&M Manual on freeze protection.EP-13 PAGE 6 RECOMMENDED TUBESIDE CLEANING PROCEDURE The extent of drum level fluctuation during a steam blow is a function of the cleaning method applied. Steam blow steam must not be discharged through the HRSG main start-up valves. HRSG's will carryover water from the steam drums during the steam blow. The operator should start with a small drum pressure change and work up to larger pressure changes to assure that the water level can be controlled. . Consult the N/E O&M manual for lay-up. Freezing water can result in tremendous damage to an HRSG. temporary steam blow valves should be utilized to control the HRSG ramp rates. The boiler must be drained after steam blows unless deaerated water was used.3 ppm. The feedwater pH should be increased to 9 by injecting ammonia. The valve seats would be subjected to damage. Start-UpWhen heating up the boiler for the steam blow process. During an intermittent type of steam blow where the drum pressure varies. Refer to the startup requirements in the N/E O&M Manual. the water level fluctuations will be significant. the drum level should remain fairly constant. The water level must be maintained between the LLWL and the HHWL. the boiler is able to reach an equilibrium condition and subsequently.

The CT operating mode should be selected to minimize the exhaust temperature. This will allow more heat to approach the IP evaporator maximizing the IP steam flow. ReheatersWhen blowing the HP system of an HRSG with a reheater. The accuracy of these devices is dependent upon the finish of the interior surface.EP-13 PAGE 7 RECOMMENDED TUBESIDE CLEANING PROCEDURE Operating PressuresHRSG operating conditions can be varied to augment the steam blow process. In no case must the desuperheater block valve be opened with insufficient steam flow past the desuperheater. the reheater may have to be operated without the benefit of cold reheat steam. . The steam must have a minimum of 25°F of superheat after the desuperheater. For example. Non-Return Valves The main steam valve must be 100% open during steam blows so as not to cause undue wear on the valve seats. N/E will not be responsible for damage to the non-return valve in the event that the erector chooses to leave the non-return valve internals in line during the steam blows. ErectionCare has been taken to supply all HRSG components in a good condition. there must be adequate steam flow and steam superheat to vaporize the water. Non-return valve vendors require that the non-return valve disc (cage) be removed during a steam blow. Measurement Devices The steam blow process may affect steam flow meters. the HP drum operating pressure should be maximized when blowing an IP system. Under these conditions. the IP steam flow must still flow though the reheater. Water sprayed under the wrong conditions can lead to damage. If desuperheaters are utilized. Vents on the hot reheat line should be open to maximize the IP steam flow and minimize the reheater operating pressure. Desuperheater Operation – N/E advises that the water flow to the desuperheaters be isolated during steam blows. The erector must also strive to maintain this condition during all phases of the erection process. These devices should be removed if practical.

during the heat up process. an air blow may be performed to generate the same end result of a steam blow.EP-13 PAGE 8 RECOMMENDED TUBESIDE CLEANING PROCEDURE In many cases. and the BOP contractor. thermal expansion of pipelines) must be addressed and inspected to insure proper working order. The air is released through the steam piping at levels sufficient to generate the required cleaning ratios.e. steam turbine manufacturer. Therefore. The cleaning requirements (i. steam targets are inserted in the temporary steam piping for testing at the steam blow conditions. Air Blow When sufficient water is not available. Combination Chemical Clean/ Steam (Air) Blow A thorough chemical clean of the steam path piping prior to performing a steam (air) blow may significantly reduce the time required to meet the clean acceptance criteria. The external air tanks are then repressurized and the sequence repeated similar to the intermittent steam blow. This will generally require larger velocities than a steam blow due to the reduced density of the air. . Further questions or support regarding blows should be directed to the N/E Project Manager. the steam blow may represent the first time that large quantities of heat have been passed through the HRSG. number and depth of marks on target) for final acceptance are typically defined by the end user.e. External air tanks are pressurized to predetermined levels and connected to the steam path piping. The chemical clean may be performed simultaneously with the water path cleaning which may help to reduce the additional cost of the chemical cleaning of the steam path. Acceptance Once it has been demonstrated that the required cleaning ratios have been met. The targets are subsequently removed and inspected for marks and impressions. The reduction in steam blow time is most noticeable when utilizing the intermittent steam blow method. items typically associated with first fire of the boiler (i.

Furthermore. both boilers must be in operation to generate the required cleaning ratios of the common piping.        . the steam blow valve should be a sacrificial butterfly valve or gate valve. Care must be taken to insure that the superheated steam is maintained within boiler design values as well as temporary piping design values. In general. by desuperheating the boiler effluent the subsequent reduction in steam velocity helps to minimize the noise generated by the sonic steam flowing through the temporary piping.EP-13 PAGE 9 RECOMMENDED TUBESIDE CLEANING PROCEDURE Issues to Note:  For best results. A temporary desuperheater in the steam blow piping may help to eliminate exceeding design temperatures of temporary piping. Boiler operation during steam blows is a very transient operation that requires complete attention of the boiler operator. If not required for temperature control during the steam blow. When two units are manifolded together. Power plants are generally flexible so that one can optimize the conditions for a given steam blow. It may be advisable to hire an auxiliary demineralization plant for steam blows. permanent desuperheating stations are to be removed from the steam path during steam blows. flow must be maintained in all pressure systems during a steam blow to provide sufficient cooling of tubes. The excessive flow obstruction in a globe valve can lead to rapid wear on the valve seats and is more subject to locking up due to impregnated obstructions. Large fluctuations in drum level will be encountered during intermittent steam blows and during valve opening modifications of a continuous blow. However. the plant demineralization make-up water train does not have sufficient capacity to generate the required amounts of water utilized during a steam blow without subsequently imposing large time delays. Steam blow piping is not generally rated for base load steam temperatures. Care must be taken when bringing both units up simultaneously so as not to develop excessive pressure fluctuations between the boilers.

When heating up the boiler for the steam blow process.0 3. HRSG Insulation must be installed prior to heat-up of the boiler. and then starting the boiler up again and reaching the acceptable cleaning ratios.EP-13 PAGE 10 RECOMMENDED TUBESIDE CLEANING PROCEDURE  Pneumatically inserted target plates eliminate the requirement of having to bring the boiler down after reaching the cleaning ratios. the insulation also prevents the formation of surface micro-fissures in the event of boiler operation during extreme weather conditions. protection of the HRSG. Steam blow steam must not be discharged through the HRSG main start-up valves.6°C) Considerations This section highlights considerations on when to clean the HRSG. inserting the targets. 3. These valves are generally globe-type control valves and are subject to damage when passing dirty steam (steam blow steam).1 The unit should always be inspected and cleaned after initial erection.3 . The saturation temperature differential generated between the initial drum pressure and final drum pressure during an intermittent steam blow must be limited to 75°F (41. Future cleanings should be scheduled as required based on inspections and monitoring of performance. and other planning/work that may not be provided by the contractor. The decision on whether cleaning for mill scale removal will be necessary should be made by the owner in conjunction with those who will be doing the water treatment of the plant during operation.2 3. the temporary sacrificial steam blow valves should be utilized to control the ramp rate of the pressure systems. While providing personnel protection. A P&ID should be supplied to the cleaning contractor to lay out the circulation path.    3.

Control valves.9 . the path of least resistance in the evaporators may be through the downcomer(s) and not through the tubes.4 All pre-boiler piping. they must be reinstalled with the same orientation. however. including feedwater storage/treatment facilities. and must be removed if the cleaning solution will attack this material. In particular. it may be best to delay cleaning for scale removal until after operation has removed loose deposits from the feedwater system. A LOCKOUT PROCEDURE SHOULD BE EMPLOYED TO INSURE THE REMOVAL OF THIS TEMPORARY GAUGE GLASS AFTER THE CHEMICAL CLEAN HAS BEEN COMPLETED AND PRIOR TO PERMANENT OPERATION. Restricting air flow through the duct (by covering the stack or closing access doors) will reduce the amount of heat lost in the HRSG. if deemed necessary by the cleaning contractor.7 As it circulates through the HRSG. Steam drum internals can remain installed during the chemical cleaning. This may require blocking the downcomer(s) during chemical cleaning. 3. the cleaning solution will cool. Re-install the mesh pads before steam blow or operation. and other instrumentation that could be damaged during the cleaning should be removed or bypassed. THIS GLASS COULD SHATTER UNDER SERVICE PRESSURE AND RESULT IN DAMAGE OR PERSONAL INJURY. Inform the contractor of the maximum working pressure and temperature on this temporary glass. The contractor should take steps to ensure circulation of the cleaning solution through all sections of the HRSG. WARNING: THE DISPOSABLE TUBE TYPE GAUGE GLASS TYPICALLY USED DURING THE CLEANING PROCESS IS NOT SUITABLE FOR STEAM SERVICE. Note. orifices. If the chevron separators are removed for inspection or additional cleaning. Heating of the cleaning and rinsing fluid is normally accomplished in an external heat exchanger supplied by the cleaning contractor. 3.EP-13 PAGE 11 RECOMMENDED TUBESIDE CLEANING PROCEDURE 3.

Solution temperature should be monitored at the inlet and outlet points of the HRSG to ensure an effective temperature is maintained.

The deaerating function should be monitored for proper operation after startup.10 Depending on the cleanliness of the pre-boiler water facilities. Noise attenuation of the temporary steam blow piping may be required. a steam blow silencer is provided due to noise constraints.15 3. If the combustion turbine is to be used as the source for heating the cleaning solution. the steam flowing through the piping may reach sonic speeds and as such. THEY SHOULD BE INSPECTED AND CLEANED AS REQUIRED. The cost associated with longer circulation times of weaker cleaning fluids may be offset by the disposal cost of more caustic/acidic fluids. The customer should retain records of the entire cleaning procedure including the chemicals used in the process.14 3.16 3.17 . care must be taken to insure that the provided cleaning solution pumps are sufficient to maintain drum level. Sample lines should be closed during steam blow and chemical cleaning to avoid plugging.EP-13 PAGE 12 RECOMMENDED TUBESIDE CLEANING PROCEDURE CAUTION: FOREIGN MATTER ON THE INTERNALS COULD RESULT IN STEAM PURITY PROBLEMS. A temporary desuperheater station at the outlet of the HRSG piping will help to limit the velocities and therefore the noise generation. generate a considerable amount of noise. the deaerator spray nozzles and trays may filter some material during initial operation. the customer and contractor should verify that the unit is clean and all the coils have been completely drained. Disposal of the cleaning solutions may contribute substantially to the cost of the process. Safety procedures should be reviewed or developed as necessary prior to any chemical cleaning.12 3. When the cleaning is completed. Generally. 3. It does no good to have a silencer rated for 85 dBA when the noise emitting from the upstream pipe is 115 dBA. Incorrect pump size will increase the time required to clean the boiler. However.13 3.11 3. 3.

18 Following cleaning. It is advisable to remove the steam drum mesh pads prior to commencing with a chemical cleaning which will circulate through the steam path. N/E does not endorse or recommend any particular type of chemical clean / steam blow (including thermal shock steam blows). IF these chemicals are to be utilized.21 . proper lay up procedures should be followed. Reference the Nooter/Eriksen lay up recommendations. The mesh pad will act as a sieve in such a situation and would require an extensive cleaning after the chemical cleaning is accomplished. Boil out with caustic soda (NaOH) or soda ash (Na2CO3) is not recommended.EP-13 PAGE 13 RECOMMENDED TUBESIDE CLEANING PROCEDURE 3. the superheaters must be filled with properly treated condensate during the cleaning.
