Then you are right here.
Thermal plants use steam in their processes to generate electric current or heat. As an example, each steam line in an industrial plant contains at least one vent and drain valve to remove air and water. The drainage should avoid temperature differences and material stress inside the lines. Vent and drain valves need to be closed during operation to avoid the loss of steam (= energy loss) and ensure the efficient operation of steam boilers. Thermal efficiency is therefore the highest priority - every loss of steam equals a loss in euros. Continuous inspection is necessary to identify leaking valves in an early stage.
The following example shows a case study of a thermal plant where a leaking valve has strong impact on process efficiency and costs.
