EPRI: Balance of Plant Corrosion and Heat Transfer Conference

Date: Monday 24 June 2024
Location: Loews Kansas City Hotel | 1515 Wyandotte St | Kansas City, MO 64108 | USA

The Balance of Plant Corrosion and Heat Transfer Conference week consists of six different users groups; Buried Piping Integrity Group (BPIG), CHECWORKS Users Group (CHUG), Heat Exchanger Performance User Group (HXPUG), Nuclear Utility Coatings Council (NUCC), Plant Performance Enhancement Program (P2EP), and Service Water Assistance Program (SWAP). Although these groups have historically met individually and in some combinations, the intention of combining the groups is to foster collaboration with individuals of related technical areas and plant performance responsibilities. The common meeting location affords members an economically effective opportunity to interact and participate with related user groups and promotes a broader technical focus for members. The meeting benefits members by building a network of expert resources that can be contacted to answer questions on buried piping, coatings, corrosion, heat exchanger, thermal performance, and ultimate heat sink monitoring, operation, inspection, and maintenance related activities. Attendees will gain knowledge of how other utilities operate, allowing you and your team to benchmark your own operating processes and see how other utilities address common challenges. A combined vendor fair will be on Wednesday evening.

The objectives include the following: Member issue resolution Updates on EPRI Research Technical Knowledge Transfer Open Exchange of Industry Operating Experience Discussions for future research projects Updates on available technology and application of technologies Peer to peer and technology supplier interaction Collect unique perspectives from combining topical areas

Topics covered in this workshop will be relevant to program owners, system and component engineers, NDE persons, and managers responsible for the performance of buried piping, flow accelerated corrosion, coatings, heat exchangers, service water systems, and thermal performance. This four-day meeting is intended to be interactive and structured in a manner that encourages cross collaboration of multiple engineering disciplines.
