Power Plant Turbines: Temperature, Pressure & Flow Measurement

Flow measurement, along with measuring temperature and pressure, are critical for optimal operation in gas and steam turbines. If these parameters do not stay within appropriate ranges, a power plant will suffer from issues with safety, performance, and efficiency. Learn more.

Differential Pressure Sensors

In hydroelectric power generation, dirt and debris in the intake water can shorten the lifetime of turbine blades. Filters inside intake pipes trap the debris so that only sediment-free water hits the blades. A differential pressure sensor/transducer measures the flow on both sides of the filter, and will alert plant operators when the filter is dirty and needs to be replaced.

SmartSwarm 342

Advantech's SmartSwarm 342 IIoT gateway enables owners, operators, and integrators of remote assets to integrate data from the asset into IIoT applications such as dashboarding, analytics or predictive maintenance.

Parker Low-Torque™ Grafoil® Bonnet

Enerdoor EMI/RFI Filters and EMC Testing

It can be challenging for OEMs, system integrators and distributors to find “invisible noise.” Unwanted EMI and RFI noise can degrade the performance of communication systems and cause false triggering and faulty readings in sensor circuits.

Enerdoor EMI-RFI Filters

EMI and RFI are types of electric or electronic emission that can degrade, impair or prevent electrical circuit performance. To protect and optimize equipment performance, Enerdoor offers one of the largest ranges of solutions to reduce electromagnetic / radio-frequency interference.
