Temp-Pro is trusted by alternative energy sources with supporting temperature measurement instrumentation used in turbines, generators, and associated equipment

Throughout the history of our company, Temp-Pro has always played a major role in the innovative nature of renewable and alternative power generation operations. We have successfully worked with clients who are pioneers in the Hydropower Industry, contributing to the clean energy movement with our industrial temperature measurement products.

Growing Hydropower Role in Energy Generation is Supported by Temp-Pro’s Range of RTDs and Related ComponentsHydropower has gained popularity in the 21st century, particularly as it is one of the oldest forms of renewable energy sources. As hydropower plants have improved their efficiency and management of water resources with greater responsibility than ever before, the evolution of its generators and related components has led to increased sophistication.

The increase in energy demand has been met by a diverse set of renewable power generation sources that have complemented that of fossil fuel power plants. Hydropower alone has contributed to a capacity of more than 1,300 GW with over 4,300 TWh of generation—further cementing hydropower’s contribution to the overall energy production in North America.

The need for monitoring and temperature measurement in hydropower plants ranges from oil and metal temperature across many different components in the system. Case in point, the measurement of the temperature in bearings in hydropower equipment, as well as in water tanks, heat exchangers, and other components can ensure their proper and safe operation.

Currently, Temp-Pro serves the needs of hydropower plants across the U.S. with a wide range of products, equipment and solutions to include:

  • Generator Core RTDs
  • Generator Frame RTDs
  • Stator Slot Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTD’s)
  • Air-Gap Flux Probes
  • RTD Extension Cable
  • Electrical Terminal Box
  • Averaging RTDs
  • Wire Harness & Cable Assemblies
  • Miniature Bearing Sensors

As the world clamors for better and improved ways of generating energy, Hydropower—along with Solar Thermal, Renewable Steam, Biomass Fueled, Hydro Electric, and Aeolic power generation—will continue to grow in popularity. In addition, the flexibility and cost-benefit ratio of hydropower-generated electricity, combined with its clean water reservoir element, is likely to be lauded for its indirect benefits too.

While Renewable Energy is still not considered to be a subset of mainstream or conventional power generation, Temp-Pro is committed to supporting our Hydropower Industry clients with customized temperature measurement devices and solutions to meet their needs.
