The end of filling is characterized by an increase in the pressure in the collector of the heat network to the static pressure value or to the pressure in the make-up pipeline. After completing the filling, open the head valve on the return pipe completely;

f) after the completion of filling the pipelines, it is necessary to open the air valves several times within 2-3 hours in order to make sure that the air has been completely removed. Make-up pumps must be in operation to maintain the static pressure of the filled network.

Filling of distribution networks and branches is carried out in the same way as the main trunk pipelines.

Features start water heating network at negative outdoor temperatures

If the water-heating installation, the heat source does not work, water is supplied through the bypass of the head valves to the supply and return pipes. If the water-heating installation is working, water is supplied through the head valve bypass into the return pipeline and through a specially inserted jumper after the head valves into the supply pipe, and the head valve (and bypass) on the supply pipe must be tightly closed.

a) before starting to fill the pipelines, open all draining devices and air vents, as well as gate valves on the dam between supply and return lines before sectioning valves; air vents should be closed after the termination of the release of air through them, and the draining devices – after the temperature of the drained water exceeds 30 ° C;

c) the filling of subsequent sectioned areas and the establishment of a circulation regime in them should be carried out in compliance with the requirements specified in

The make-up device must always compensate for the loss of water from the head section;

d) after filling the main pipelines and creating circulation in them, the distribution networks should be filled in compliance with the above requirements. Branches that have a greater length should be filled in separate sectional areas; each subsequent section is filled after the circulation has been created in the previous one;

e) filling out branches to consumers should be done after filling all main and distribution networks, while circulation is created through the mixing lines of the elevators with the heat consumption systems disconnected (by agreement and with the participation of consumers). Heat consumption systems connected to the heat networks directly (without mixing) and pumped mixing systems should be filled together with the heating point, while circulation is created through the heat consumption system (by agreement and with the participation of consumers);

e) after filling the entire network and creating a circulation in it, all valves on the bridges between the supply and return pipelines at the sectionalizing valves should be fully closed.

a) through the bypass of the head valve, supply water to the return pipeline and through the jumper after the head valves – into the supply pipe, while the head valve with the bypass on the supply pipe must be completely closed;

b) after the completion of filling the pipelines of the sectioned section, close the valves on the bulkhead behind the head valves, through which the supply pipeline was filled;

c) by slow opening of the bypass at the head valve on the supply pipe, establish the circulation mode in the sectioned section.

If problems arise during the filling of the pipelines of the heat supply network and the need for emptying the pipelines, it is necessary to open all draining devices and air vents so that there is no water left in any low-lying point.

Check readiness and the inclusion of heat points and heat consumption systems

in closed heating systems – once every four years;

in open heating systems – once every two years.

After the overhaul of the heat consumption system should be washed, regardless of the prescription of the last flush.

Flushing should be done hydropneumatically.

When flushing systems with water only, the speed of the latter should exceed the operational one by 3-5 times, which is achieved using a special pump.

According to the results of washing the consumer must draw up an act.

during hydraulic testing of water and steam heat consumption systems for 5 minutes, the pressure drop did not exceed 0.02 MPa (0.2 kgf / cm 2);

when testing systems of panel heating, the pressure drop for 15 minutes did not exceed 0.01 MPa (0.1 kgf / cm 2).

If the results of the hydraulic test do not meet the specified conditions, the consumer should identify and repair the leaks, after which the systems should be subjected to repeated hydraulic tests for strength and density.

Control over the quality of water in heat consumption systems is carried out by chemical analysis.

If there are several main heat pipelines that are fed from a common source of thermal energy, the inclusion of heat consumption systems connected to each highway is made independently of one another through the common Start-up Program; when determining the number of simultaneously filled systems, the performance of the water-heating installation and the make-up device of the heat source should be taken into account.

Starting steam heating network

heating and purging of steam lines;

filling and flushing condensate lines;

connection of heat consumption systems to the steam network.

Local start-up instructions must be approved by the Chief Engineer of the CEET.

Heating and purging of steam lines

While simultaneously heating the line and its branches, the valve on all the heated branches must be fully opened.

Before heating the steam line, the drainage devices of the heated section must be fully open, which are also used for air release.

The steam traps on the heated steam line should be turned off, and the steam line drainage at the installation sites of the steam traps should be switched to direct purging to the atmosphere. In case of parallel laying of several steam lines, the starting drains of each of them should be separate and not connected to each other.

In the absence of a bypass on the head valve, steam is supplied to the steam line by slightly opening the valve itself.

If it is impossible to eliminate the blockage by blowing it is necessary to stop heating, relieve all the pressure, remove and clean the shut-off valves, clean the fitting. After cleaning, resume heating.

It should be borne in mind that the flow of condensate through the drainage device is provided only if there is an overpressure in the heated pipeline.

After the drainage devices are closed, the steam traps that were shut off during the start-up period should be activated.

After increasing the pressure, all the steam lines should be re-inspected, and the points of evaporation and defects identified on them should be eliminated. After the start of the steam line it is necessary to check the tightness of the bolts of flange connections.

Purging is done through valves specially installed in the end part of the steam line (and its branches) by completely opening them to the exhaust of steam into the atmosphere. Sound attenuators can be used to reduce noise.

When purging the steam line, all necessary measures should be taken to protect people from burns and other damage, as well as to have unhindered access to the valve through which purging is performed.

Filling and flushing condensate lines

Bleeding of condensate with steam is not allowed.

After the condensate line is filled with condensate or softened deaerated water, a test wash should be carried out with this water, during which the quality of the initial and discharged water is checked by chemical analyzes. Control flushing continues as long as the quality of the discharged water meets the established requirements.

The maximum value of the test pressure is set in accordance with the specified rules and taking into account the maximum loads that can be taken over by fixed supports.

In each case, the test pressure value is set by the technical manager of the OETS within the permissible limits specified above.

When testing sections of the heating network, in which, according to the terrain profile conditions, network and stationary pressure pumps cannot create a pressure equal to the test pressure, mobile pumping units and hydraulic presses are used.

The heat network is considered to have passed the hydraulic test for strength and density, if, when it was found for 10 minutes under the specified test pressure, the feed value did not exceed the calculated one.

The whole network should be subjected to temperature tests from the heat source to the heat points of the heat consumption systems.

Temperature tests should be carried out at stable daily positive outdoor temperatures.

The maximum temperature should be taken as the maximum temperature of the supply water in accordance with the approved temperature schedule for regulating heat supply at the source.

In places where the valves do not provide a shutdown density, it is necessary to install plugs.

Operation of automation devices and measuring instruments in heat networks

Acceptance of automation equipment in operation after installation and commissioning should be made by the acceptance committee, the composition of which is determined by the technical management of the CEET.

It is allowed to turn on automatic regulators on the operating process equipment by personnel who are in charge of the operational automation equipment, as well as representatives of specialized organizations performing their adjustment, under supervision and with the permission of the operating personnel operating the process equipment. From the moment the regulators are turned on, the personnel operating the process equipment is fully responsible for the safety of automation equipment.

Automatic regulators should be activated when the equipment is operating in a stable mode.

Automatic regulators that have not worked before should include two people, one of whom (from the personnel servicing automation devices) performs switching operations, and the other (serving technological equipment) monitors the operation of equipment and regulators.

Before switching on it is necessary to check:

a) remote control action by the regulatory authority. To do this, move the regulatory body into two or four divisions according to the position indicator in different directions. In this case, the regulator should move smoothly, as it is necessary to ascertain by the position indicator and the instrumentation;

b) availability of supply voltage and proper operation of the automatic power reserve for electronic controllers;

C) the presence of pressure of the working environment – 0.2-1.0 MPa (2-10 kgf / cm 2) for hydraulic regulators.

It is necessary to periodically check whether the regulator reacts correctly to the deviations of the controlled parameter and whether its deviations do not go beyond permissible limits.

When the regulator is turned on (off), the connection between the automatic regulators in the process should be taken into account. For example, on booster pumping stations, first protection against an emergency pressure boost is activated, then the device "chopping"further pressure regulators "after myself", "to yourself", "heating system feed".

Automatic controller must be temporarily disabled:

a) if the regulator is in an extreme position for a long time;

b) if deviations of parameters or transition to self-oscillation mode are caused by unstable equipment operation or uncharacteristic large disturbances.

The automatic regulator must be disabled if the mechanical part of the regulator is faulty.

In case of doubts about the correctness of the automatic controller operation, it is necessary to check its operation. For this purpose, the switch is set to the position of the regulator until the adjustable parameter deviates by a permissible value. After that, the switch is transferred to the automatic control position. A normally active controller must return the parameter to the set value.

If it is found that the value of the controlled parameter differs from the set one, it is necessary to change the setting of the regulator with the setting device and make sure that it is correct.

The responsibility of the operating personnel serving the process equipment is to maintain the cleanliness of the external parts of the regulator.

All cases of disconnection of regulators by operating personnel operating the process equipment must inform the CEE dispatcher.

The necessity and sufficiency of the installation of an emergency overpressure protection device should be determined on the basis of hydrodynamic calculation and (or) special tests.

The lead or lag time is determined during the commissioning process and must be recorded in the local instructions.

The operation of the protection devices must be checked before and after the heating period.

The scales of the devices should be marked setting protection.

All cases of protection operation, as well as their failures should be taken into account and analyzed.

Decommissioning of technological protection devices on operating equipment is allowed only in the following cases:

the need to disable protection due to the instruction manual of the main equipment;

obvious equipment malfunction. Disconnection should be carried out by order of the dispatcher with a mandatory notification of the chief engineer of the CEET.

In all other cases, disabling protection should be performed only by order of the chief engineer of the CEET.

Repair and adjustment work in the included protection schemes is prohibited.

once a week, check the setting of the automation equipment, the state of the moving parts at a given mode and when artificially caused (with the permission of the CEET Manager) abrupt changes in the parameter to be regulated;

once a month to check the density of the connecting (impulse) lines and blow them;

during the shutdown of the heating network in the summer period, to make a scheduled preventive repair of automation equipment, check the condition of the valve sealing edges, quality of lapping them to the saddles; the state of springs, rods, diaphragms and bellows, regulating, pulse and shut-off valves;

at least once a month to provide for switching automation equipment from one power source to another (recorded in the operational log of the object), in the schemes of which, according to the reliability conditions of their work, two power sources are provided.

upon detection of malfunctions of the regulator or its nodes;

with the disappearance of power on the current regulator.

In these cases, management of the regulator should be transferred from automatic to manual or remote.

An entry should be made in the operational log indicating the time and reason for shutting down the regulator. In this case, measures must be taken to eliminate the problem.

The remote alarm signal should work in the following cases:

de-energizing (loss of power) of the pumping station;

shutting down the main pump and turning on the backup pump unit from the ATS;

heating of bearings or electric motor over admissible limits;

flooding of the premises of the pumping station, associated with the emergency flow of water, the pumping of which is not done by the drainage pump, as well as in the event of the last failure;

triggering of protective or blocking systems;

emergency shutdown without restoration of adjustable parameters beyond the limits of permissible values;

fire alarm triggering.

Repair of automatic regulators and remote control devices must be made during the repair of main equipment.

Operation of protection against electrochemical corrosion

The use of corrosion protection equipment and corrosion measurements must be carried out in accordance with the Model Instructions for the Protection of Heat Networks from External Corrosion [20] and the Rules and Regulations for the Protection of Heat Networks from Electrochemical Corrosion [19].

Measurements of the electrical resistivity of soils should be made as necessary to identify sections of the route of thermal networks without channeling in soils with high corrosivity.

Corrosion measurements to determine the hazardous effect of stray currents on steel pipelines of underground heat networks should be carried out in the zones of influence of stray currents once every 6 months, and also after each significant change in the operation mode of electrified power supply systems (change in the operation schedule of electric vehicles, change the location of traction substations, suction points and

In other cases, the measurement should be done once every 2 years.

Installations of an ECP should be constantly kept in a state of full working capacity.

Preventive maintenance of ECP installations should be carried out according to the schedule of technical inspections and scheduled preventive repairs approved by the technical manager of the heating network enterprise, the schedule should contain a list of types and volumes of technical inspections and repair works, their timing, instructions for organizing accounting and reporting on the work performed.

technical inspection of cathode installations – 2 times a month, drainage installations – 4 times a month;

technical inspection with verification of effectiveness – 1 time in 6 months;

current repair – once a year;

overhaul – 1 time in 5 years.

All malfunctions in the operation of the ECP plant must be repaired within 24 hours after their detection.
