The Steam and Steam Power committee holds meetings
twice a year, usually occurring at locations where new technology
can be viewed via site tours. Meetings are used to provide an
avenue to allow its members to:
· Discuss and consult on problems within their plants.
· Share new ideas and technologies.
· Find out about new technologies via supplier seminars
· Report on equipment failures, safety and operational
The committee has no geographical boundaries, rotating meetings
between eastern, central and western Canada.
The committee looks at all aspects of steam generation from
hog fuel boilers in power plants to recovery boilers. All auxiliary
systems in the steam plant are also discussed, including electrical
distribution systems, turbo-generator operation, boiler feedwater/condensate
systems, plant air systems as well at the complete liquor cycle
within the kraft pulp mill. An active interest is maintained
in all associated environmental issues, energy efficiency as
well deregulation of the electrical industry.
Members of the committee consist of Canadian pulp and paper
mill steam and/or recovery plant managers, superintendents and/or
supervisors with a strong delegation from vendors/suppliers
from the leading boiler manufacturing companies, associated
consultants and water treatment companies.
