Thermodynamic performance testing


SINT Technology employs the most advanced techniques for measuring and analysing machines and power plants performances.
The company boasts more than 20 years of experience (reference list) in measurements and field testing on rotating equipment and plants for the Power Generation and Oil & Gas industries.
  
power plant performance testing
 
Our expertise in the business has lead us to be the first Italian laboratory in obtaining the official recognition from ACCREDIA, the Italian National Accreditation Body, for power plant, centrifugal compressors and gas turbines performance tests.
This ensures and certifies the quality of our testing results to all our Customers.
 
We successfully support our Customers in the following applications:
 
  • Gas and steam turbines
  • Centrifugal, axial and reciprocating compressors
  • Centrifugal pumps
  • Condensers
  • Boilers and Regenerators
  • Electric power plants
  • Stack emissions analysis
  • Waste-to-energy power plants
  • Pipeline compression stations
     

Complete services for machine and plant performance tests

 
SINT Technology works as an independent laboratory and provides a complete service for machine and plant performance testing, which includes:
 
  • Test design engineering
  • Performance testing design: definition of measurement points, selection of instrumentation, study of data acquisition systems
  • Supply of high-precision measuring instrumentation
  • On-site shipment and installation of sensors and data acquisition system
  • Powerful real time monitoring and calculation according to the major international Codes
  • Surge testing and polytropic efficiency evaluation on centrifugal compressors
  • Measurement uncertainty calculation (ASME PTC 19.1 , ISO GUM)
 
Our test engineers have experience of power plant operation and thermal cycle efficiency analysis, and they are trained for the use, control and calibration of measuring and testing equipment. SINT Technology can also provide qualified personnel for off-shore activities (OPITO standard).

In-depth familiarity with the major applicable international standards (ISO/ASTM/ASME PTC/DIN) enable us to use proven testing methods and offer a reliable service.

 

Plant performance testing and diagnostics for any customer requirements

Equipment and plant performance tests may be carried out for different purposes and are related to machine history, maintenance schedules and running time, i.e.:

  • Preliminary performance tests on plants during the start-up stage
  • Performance diagnostics before and after maintenance services
  • Contract acceptance and compliance testing
  • Tests on machinery and plants for monitoring performance and establishing corrective action to enhance performance
  • Performance tests in normal operating conditions for production planning and cost optimization 

 

SINT Technology added value

We have been in field testing since 1990, that is the reason why we can help you to find out what is critical in your process.
