Detection Of Leakage In Boilers Using Helium Leakage Detector

Lakshmi K, Gayathri S


It is important to develop a system in which leakage in a boiler can be detected to minimize the accidents­ in nuclear power plant. Leakage in a boiler can be ensured using a system employing vacuum pump system which is automated by PLC. The present work aims to monitor the leakage in a nuclear boiler by deriving the pressure solution as functions of pressure and the opening or closing of valves in the nuclear boiler. The proposed system is expected to optimize the overall vacuum system design of a boiler during shutdown period.
