Springerville Generating Station (SGS) is a state of the art coal-fired power plant that will ensure the future of energy in Arizona. The plant consists of four units: units 1 and 2 generate a capacity of 760 MW, unit 3 adds 400 MW and unit 4 adds another 400 MW. The site also has two BBC DS 50 steam turbines.
The Springerville power plant had an original dipper plate into a water trough installed to seal the bottom of the boiler to the ash hopper.
The Springerville ash hopper dipper trough was upgraded with a DEKOMTE dry seal expansion joint retrofit, incorporating a new drip shield, flow plate, fabric joint, backing bars and inlet & outlet frames. By offering a complete product scope, DEKOMTE can assure long life and reliability in service. The fabric solution gave gas tightness, which maintains the boiler efficiency and integrity. Performance of the unit was critical to the combustion efficiency in the last years of the plant’s operation.
