    and as many of the original pump components meaning there was substantial engineering work required by the Hydro Australia Engineers Contract Award A contract of this size was sought after by several original equipment manufacturers and Hydro Australia Pty Ltd located in the Gippsland region at Morwell Victoria was awarded the contract late in 2012 The contract runs for a period of 4 years with the first pump installation completed in April 2013 and the final pump due for installation in 2016 Additional Requirements Spare Pump With the knowledge and experience of Hydro Australia with the supply of engineered spare parts a major undertaking was to supply and a complete new discharge head a first for Hydro Australia The 2 5 m high and 1 7 m wide discharge head is the most significant component of the pump as it ties everything together Other new components were manufactured by Hydro Australia including impellers stage cases wear rings couplings and shafts The new components complete with the stations spare parts enabled a complete spare pump to be manufactured This spare pump gives flexibility and relieves time critical exchanges and on the run maintenance Continue reading Alliance Partner Posted on May 21 2015 Hydro Australia is now a licensed repair facility for Ebara Increasing Capacity Posted on August 6 2009 Author Ross Bertoli Hydro Australia and Mark Moerke International Power Hazelwood Publisher Pumps Systems Date Published August 2009 As the global demand for energy grows power companies are working to implement new technologies that would enable them to produce more power from existing stations The following example demonstrates how International Power s Hazelwood power station in Australia improved the efficiency of their motor driven boiler feed pumps to produce a higher megawatt output without burning additional fossil fuels The Growing Demand for Energy Built between 1964 and 1971 the Hazelwood Power Station in Victoria s Latrobe Valley originally planned to have six units producing 200 MW each However growing electricity demand in the late 60s prompted the approval of a proposal to add two units to the station to increase generating capacity The eight unit power station was producing 1 600 MW output by the early 70s each unit generated 200 MW of power In recent years this power station has moved to improve its output through thermal efficiency gains and increasing each unit s capacity by 20 MW Engineered Modifications to Improve Pump Efficiency Having modified the turbines to use less power the plant needed to upgrade the 11 stage ring section boiler feed pumps to meet the newly elevated performance requirements International Power Hazelwood IPRH contacted a pump aftermarket service center in the Latrobe Valley to determine if modifications could be made to seven of these pumps within a two year time period Though the original pump curves implied that the pump would have sufficient head and flow to handle the increased service conditions several factors were discovered during inspection that would determine the course of action Due to a

    all the information the engineer proceeded to produce a 3D model in Solidworks A detailed study was then carried out in conjunction with the foundry to analyze the root cause of the present defect It was discovered through foundry simulation modeling that the crack in the impeller was due to shrinkage in the blade root due to insufficient feeding The solution offered was to modify the impeller hub and cone thickness internally to improve the feeding without affecting the original hydraulic profile The improved design was subjected to a simulation package to confirm the casting soundness Left Original Cone and Hub thickness Right Modified Cone and Hub thickness The casting and machining requirements for this size impeller with open vanes needed careful consideration at every stage right from modeling casting heat treatment to machining It required close attention during heat treatment quenching in water at 1150 deg C The casting was subjected to UT ultrasonic testing to confirm there was no defect in the blade root after the modification The UT and dye penetrant report was included in the overall report supplied to the end user Apart from standard chemical and mechanical tests additional corrosion and ferrite testing were carried out to confirm the casting quality against corrosion The impeller was then machined balanced and highly polished in Hydro Australia s service center to stringent QA requirements in a two step process The first step was the rough machining and trial balance which was followed by final machining and final balancing The impeller was installed successfully at Phu My 3 in March 2011 under Hydro Australia s supervision Top Left Impeller in the Machine Shop Bottom Left Trial Balance Right Impeller Assembly in the Shaft Lessons Learned Often when a pump component has failed the initial instinct is to replace

    power usage Rotor Centralization was performed to improve pump efficiency At a minimum IPRH required that the pump be returned to the original design duty Taking this into account the aftermarket service center proposed several modifications to the pump that would ensure it would not only meet performance requirements but also demonstrate improved efficiency and energy savings Once the plant approved the proposed modifications and upgrades the service center evaluated the impeller and diffuser hydraulic design data Due to an existing thick exit impeller vane tip the exit area of the impeller could be increased The underfiling calculations were then verified using an underfiling program to confirm the intended flow increase through the pump Proper underfiling of the impeller would alter the pump curve to achieve the new duty point The service center reduced the A Gap and corrected the overlap to improve flow through the pump and reduce recirculation However to perform the A Gap modification the impellers needed to be completely re welded stress relieved and re machined After the welding and machining was completed all the waterways on the diffusers and impellers were highly polished to reduce friction and gain as many efficiency points as possible The impellers were completely re welded and polished before top and after bottom The center performed rotor centralization which involves the centering of the rotating hydraulic components impellers within the stationary hydraulic components in this case the diffusers to optimize pump efficiency Pump efficiency is improved because a rotor with aligned hydraulic components is less likely to experience turbulence and heat rise in the fluid as it exits the impeller and enters the diffuser This also helps in reducing the overall vibration signature The service center performed a detailed dimensional analysis using a computerized coordinate measuring machine to take numerous dimensions of each hydraulic component at every stage to ensure centerline compatibility Replacing metal stationary wear components with composite materials also provided an opportunity to significantly reduce running clearances which further improves efficiency Using polymer or graphite composites running clearances can typically be reduced by 50 percent Equal or improved flow can be achieved with less horsepower Using less power lowers operating costs and burns less fuel Having a thorough understanding of the benefits of using composite materials the aftermarket center changed the wear ring material from austenitic cast iron to a continuous carbon fiber composite plastic Pump being assembled Assembling Installing and Testing the Rebuilt Pump Due to the significant reduction in running clearances much care was required in the assembly of the pump All fits were tightened and faces were machined to ensure trueness Step by step measurements were taken during the assembly process to ensure alignments were correct Lifts and floats were also carefully checked The rebuilt pump was returned to the power station and the plant s own condition monitoring group conducted a performance test after it was installed The performance test revealed a generous rise in performance proving an increase in flow of 7 8 percent
