Case Study: Salt Water Condenser
A Florida power plant employed a salt water condenser system made from PVC pipe. Because of the extreme UV environment, the system became inefficient at most couplings and joints due to leaking, cracking and high maintenance costs.
The solution was to replace the entire condenser system with HDPE pipe and components. The ability to weld all pipe and fitting joints allowed the integrity of the entire system to be far superior to the previous glued PVC system.
Most importantly, HDPE pipe’s resistance to UV proved to be a superior material for this unique environment. The ease of use plus the low material cost was a factor in determining a high return on investment with HDPE.
The ability to join HDPE to other materials proved to be a time and cost savings for the customer. With HDPE, the leakage due to previous bad fittings and abrasion was eliminated immediately. The total return on investment was also greatly improved when the longevity and near-maintenance-free feature of HDPE was considered. HDPE proved itself to this customer and to the power industry as a material of choice for replacing worn and outdated condenser systems.
