Title: “All Volatile Treatment in the Utility Power Industry – Yesterday & Today”

This paper provides a brief historical summary of the evolution of all volatile treatment (AVT) for fossil utility boilers and nuclear pressurized water reactor systems. Initially, the specifications were the same in both systems. To reduce iron transport, AVT in the fossil and nuclear systems began to diverge due to the differences in operating conditions and the materials of construction used for the steam generating systems. These differences will be discussed in the paper.

James Bellows, James Bellow and Associates

Title: “A Short History of Steam Turbines”

Although steam turbine devices date back to antiquity, it was the inventions of Charles A. Parsons in the 1880’s and 1890’s that made steam turbines practical. In 1885, George Westinghouse purchased rights to Parson’s patents and scaled up the turbines. The most important improvements will be traced. The increase in size and the changes in steam conditions over time will be developed. Deposition, corrosion and fatigue issues occurring through time are addressed.
