Regarding the operability and maintainability issues for TIAC system, it is very easy. Thanks to our control system the TIAC plant operates automatically.
ARANER’S TIAC control system has a very simple and intuitive HMI. Very few and simple orders are required from the operator. The level of difficulty is very low, and after 1 day training, operators will master the system.
The maintenance is very easy. Main equipment of TIAC system are compressors, pumps and heat exchangers. All equipment to be installed is robust, industrial grade and tested on site to assure their correct performance. From our experience, important damages on TIAC equipment are very rare and they always result from an incorrect maintenance.
The main maintenance operations required are related to the water pumps and the compression units, and these are very basic compared to the general maintenance of the power plant.
Maintenance staff at the power plant is normally used to maintain these kind of equipment. This means that the same operators from the power plant can operate and maintain also our TIAC system.
The basic maintenance activities are limited to a chemical analysis once per year, the cleaning of the water and oil strainers, change of bearings once they have reached their service life and, an overhaul of the main equipment every 5 to 6 years.
All the required maintenance procedure and frequencies are included in ARANER’s TIAC maintenance manual to avoid any trouble during operation.
