Dehumidification in the power generating industry
Professional climate conditioning for power plant operators
Air dehumidification against condensation and corrosion in power plants
In the power generating industry excessive humidity values are the main enemy of smooth operation in a power plant. For it entails condensation and corrosion, which can lead to damage at the mechanical system. A professional dehumidification concept affords security in this regard.
In a power plant, a high humidity level – and the resulting corrosion – may cause faults at turbines, pumps, switching devices and the entire electronics. All the more so, if we are talking about a hydroelectric power plant or an offshore wind power plant, constantly having to cope with water. Therefore, it must be the objective of climate conditioning for energy producers to keep humidity under control. In no other way can operating failures and expensive maintenance and repair tasks be prevented in advance.
High-performance technology for a dry room climate in the power plant
In collaboration with you the experts of our industrial services team put together a concept for climate conditioning in a power plant using tried and tested high-performance units: Especially the stationary desiccant dehumidifiers of the TTR series are well suited for continuous operation in a power plant. For the application in potentially explosive atmospheres we have the TTR 250 Ex on offer. The industrial condenser dryers of the DH series or the mobile construction dryers of the TTK series are also particularly well suited for climate conditioning in the power generating industry. Moreover, fans ensure optimum air circulation also in poorly accessible locations, thus preventing condensation. Our electric heaters and air handling units are the ideal supplement to additionally heat or cool the room air. What is more, using the measuring devices and data loggers, constant indoor air conditions can be checked on a permanent basis – essential for a constantly low humidity level.
Make use of our best practice industrial services
You can count on our experts
In order to precisely calculate the demand in the industry and to develop tailor-made concepts for climate conditioning experienced climate specialists are needed. Rely on our team of experts as well as the industrial services: We analyse the individual requirement situation with you present on site, determine the specific demand for devices and develop a tailor-made project solution right up to the exact positioning of the devices.
Before the planned stationary units are installed, our service team first works with mobile versions of the drying units as part of a trial run. These can be put up without any difficulty or the need for structural changes.
During this validation phase we document all relevant climate parameters such as air temperature, relative humidity, dew point or flow rate for a final optimization of the requirement calculation.
Trotec is the only provider of this advantage:
Thanks to the unique option of non-binding trial operation you will invest solely in solutions which have verifiably proven their worth in everyday operation meeting your individual on-site requirements. The stationary units will not be ordered until you are fully satisfied with our concept. The only costs incurred consist of an inexpensive hiring flat rate for the time of test operation.
Just give us a call at +49 2452 963-777 – our industry consultants will be pleased to help you personally and provide information regarding our best practice industrial services. Or send a request indicating your personal requirements directly to our industry experts. We will answer promptly!
Since every industrial undertaking has characteristic process flows, installations and facilities, every air treatment solution demands case-specific device configurations. All in all, the combined effects of air currents, humidity conditions and temperature fluctuations are often hard to calculate on a purely theoretical basis, e.g. in airlock areas or on conveying paths. The consequence: Unnecessary additional costs due to an overestimated demand or – even worse – solutions not working sufficiently in real life.
Upon request, we will readily produce tailor-made desiccant dehumidifiers as special models “made in Germany” perfectly geared to your needs, e.g.:
- TTR industrial desiccant dehumidifiers with hygienic design
- TTR industrial desiccant dehumidifiers for PWIS-free dry air
- TTR industrial desiccant dehumidifiers with extremely low dew point
Makes use of the possibility of having special models with tailored components for your individual needs planned, designed and manufactured in close consultation with our specialists.
