|Abstract:||"The HGP-A generator plant began operations on June 12, 1981 and came online on a continuous bases on March 1, 1982. During this period process problems were identified and, in most cases, plant modifications have eliminated the difficulties. Silica in the brine was stable at a pH 7.5, however, at a pH above 9.5 deposition of silica was triggered in a brine disposal system and required abandonment of the hydrogen sulfide abatement process originally proposed of the brine system. The steam phase sulfide abatement system for standby conditions was 90% effective, although superheat in the treatment system reduced abatement efficiency. Brie carryover through the separator was very low; however, scale deposition on the turbine blades resulted in substantial damage to the turbine. Non-condensable gases in the condenser were weakly partitioned into the liquid phase, and about 99% were carried into the off gas treatment system which was found to be approximately 99% effective."|
