Start-Up Feed Water Pumping System


A Midwestern Power Company employed the services of Valdes Engineering Company to enhance its start-up feed water pumping system. Their existing arrangement did not provide a back-up should the existing equipment fail, and presented operators from starting or filling more than one boiler simultaneously.

Valdes designed a parallel configuration which included the addition of a back-up start-up pump to overcome the existing system’s shortcomings. This was a multi-discipline project which included electrical and instrumentation design, piping design and stress analysis as well as procurement assistance for the new feed water pump and associated piping components.
