Our involvement in renewable energy technologies such as Concentrating Solar Power (CSP) has expanded our company’s reach into the sustainable potential for power generation
The energy industry is constantly changing and this translates into opportunity for Temp-Pro, which has been working with customers in the renewable energy industry for many years. Just as with conventional forms of power generation, CSP has become a major player in global energy markets—and US-based CSP plants account for 1,815 MW, according the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA).
Temp-Pro’s support of OEMs has led to our involvement in global projects, as is the case of the Ashalim Power Station in Israel, located close to the Sinai Peninsula in the southern border nearing Egypt. This CSP plant required the expertise of Temp-Pro in the integration of a full range of industrial thermometers and related components, which allow for temperature monitoring in this massive array of energy generation equipment.
The complex nature of CSP plants requires the integration of RTDs and thermocouples throughout the system, allowing its operators to monitor shifts in temperature due to the nature of solar power, which can change with seasons, weather conditions and other physical factors. The critical nature of such components in the efficient operation of a CSP plant requires the knowledge and experience that only an experienced company like Temp-Pro can deliver.
Measuring temperature shifts in parabolic trough systems, curved-mirror trough systems, reflectors, power towers, and dish-engines requires a high level of durability in temperatures that can top 1,200° F. In addition, boilers, turbines, generators, and other components share many similarities with conventional power generation equipment, which Temp-Pro has already been serving for decades.
As we continue to experience a slow-but-steady shift away from fossil fuels and into the renewable energy field, Temp-Pro will continue to deliver exceptional value and performance from our complete array of industrial temperature measurement devices. We are committed to evolving with the industries we serve and our team of experts actively follows new trends and developments that allow us to remain as leaders in industrial thermometer design and manufacturing.
