Maintaining power generation equipment as the demand of the Winter Season winds down is part of a cyclical approach to keeping it in top operational shape
Power generation equipment is much more than an asset—it is an investment that yields constant revenue all year long. Power plants of all sizes and independent power producers (IPPs) make it a top priority to schedule planned outages to ensure their safe operation through proactive maintenance, repairs and parts replacement. After all, ensuring the availability of the power generation equipment translates into a constant stream of revenue that also contributes to extending its operational lifetime.
For decades, Temp-Pro has been a valuable strategic partner to a wide range of power generation players who depend on our company’s industrial temperature measurement devices. In fact, our RTDs, thermocouples and other custom industrial thermometers can be found in power plants employing gas turbines, steam turbines, and generator equipment—including HRSG, combined-cycle power plants,
Planned outages are the optimal time when power plant operators perform maintenance on equipment and a way to ensure the proper replacement of turbine parts and repair of power plant’s equipment. This include Gas Turbines, Steam Turbines, Generators, HRSG, Combined Cycle Power Plants, and BoP auxiliary equipment. The rigor of industrial environments where power generation equipment is employed operates in high temperature and high-pressure conditions requiring Temp-Pro’s products and industry expertise.
Faulty temperature measurement devices can cause errors that result in critical events, some of which can be potentially dangerous for power plant personnel and the overall operation of the facilities. The electrical sensors in Temp-Pro’s temperature measurement devices—namely RTDs and thermocouples—are manufactured to withstand industrial environments using our proprietary manufacturing techniques. These are based on decades of knowledge and insight that allow us to recommend and/or specify the optimal temperature measurement device and configuration.
Temp-Pro can help a power plant operator plan, execute and maintain its temperature measurement devices using best practices and proven techniques. Our expert advice can also help prevent design oversights when upgrading or replacing RTDs, thermocouples and other temperature measurement equipment. Ensuring the proper operation of these industrial thermometers translates into stable and reliable operation in steam/gas turbines, generators and associated systems requiring temperature measurement.
