We love spreading Steam Culture near and far, so when we had the opportunity to attend PowerGen 2017 in Las Vegas, Nevada, our Steam Team was happy to pull up a seat at the table. PowerGen is the world’s largest power generation conference, playing host to more than 20,000 attendees and 1,400 exhibitors. It brings together leaders from across the energy industry to share the latest innovations and learn about the newest technologies.
As we publish this blog our team will likely be arriving in warm Orlando Florida, and those of us back here in chilly Louisville, KY will be jealous. We're sending our VP of Sales and Marketing, Ritchie Ware, our Director of Sales, Steven Taylor, and Alex Taylor our National Accounts Rep. down to Power GEN 2016. They are excited as always to attend one of the big events each year in our industry. It's #powergenweek and WARE will have a booth as always.
Next week, WARE will be traveling to Las Vegas to attend POWER-GEN International. While we won't be emptying out pockets at the casinos, we will be at booth #3225 and welcome all visitors to come by and say hello.
Next week, we will be headed to Power-Gen in Las Vegas, so we thought this would be the perfect opportunity to talk about a deaerator system and condensate system.
Today on the Boiling Point, Ritchie talks with Steven about the differences between a deaerator system and a condensate system. Both of these systems are able to preheat your feed water system and remove the oxygen from the water; however, they operate a bit differently. As we have mentioned before, water can be very corrosive to the metal in a steam system, so removing as much oxygen as possible is a priority.
