dc.description.abstractPerformance deficiencies in large steam surface condensers are normally caused by fouling on the circulating water side of the condenser. The main condensers at Gibson station continued to experience performance deficiencies after the water-side problems were remedied. The focus of this report is the research and testing performed on the Unit No. 3 main condenser in determining the cause or causes of continued poor performance. The four major areas of research and testing are: testing for localized air pockets on the shell side of the tube bundles, researching for possible methods of improving condenser deaeration performance, visual inspection and analysis of the tube bundles, and the proposal for a project to create lanes in the lower half of each tube bundle. The study carried out on the unit 3 main condenser tube bundles has led to considerable improvement in the performance of the Unit 3 main condenser. This will show the way for improving the performance of the remaining four generating units at Gibson Station
