I am beat. Yes again. I would have posted last nite but I left my laptop bag in the work trailer. The long days are wearing on me. I aint used to this stuff. In the same breath I have had a ball. I have had a few issue with the new machine but have been able to trouble shoot and git-r-Done.
It is cold and dry and my fingers are splitting and sore. All my muscles are sore or have just refused to move. LOL
I think I get to leave tomorrow. We have to do a sweep of all the points we tested. There are always missed points.
I spent the last two days in the penthouse. It is the little room at the top of the boiler. It has the upper headers and I needed to take samples there. It is 116 steps up then climb down 15 rungs of a ladder. You crawl across an inclined edge to crawl into a 18 x 24 hole. It 4 foot tall room and the floor is pipe and the breeze blew thru. It is hard to explain and I didnt take pics cause I didnt want to carry anything else up but it is rather unpleasant. That said it was a great experience because I make equipment for the guys and I have a better appreciation for what they go thru.
Here are the pic of the day.
Here is the plant. It is a gas fired unit coupled with a HRSG. It is very efficient.
This is another view of the cooling towers. Hour glass figures aren't just for the Nukes anymore.
Here are the facilities. Granted they did a great job keeping them clean but couldnt we have heated seats??? It was 25 this morn. Let's just say I had visions of the Christmas Story, tongue on the frozen flagpole scene in my mind.
I am going to miss being on this trip. It was great for blogging. Well for me anyways. Hope y'all found something to enjoy.
