  • Best Practices for Eddy Current Testing of Heat Exchanger Tubes

    Eddy current testing (ECT)  is one of the best methods of measuring wall thickness and circumferential cracks when testing heat exchanger tubes. But it takes quality instrumentation to capture defects accurately. Heat exchanger tubes are subject to heavy stress due to high-fluid pressure, including expansions and contractions of the tubes themselves. ECT is one of the most ideal inspection ...

  • Economics of tiny thermal power plants

    Thermal power plants is the main source of energy and electricity in India and almost all countries of the world. Most of the giant thermal power plants have capacity of 500MW to 1000 MW. Investment in such giant thermal power plants is Rs 100 million per MW including transmission lines and distribution lines. ( 60 rupees = 1 US$, MW=1000KW). So 1000MW thermal power plant costs Rs 100 million/MW ...
