Treatment of Industrial Water for cooling generators and filtration of sealing water to increase the service life of the Turbine Shaft sliding-ring seals in Hydro-Electric Power Stations.
Fouling of pipes and heat exchanging surfaces lowers the thermal efficiency, while increasing the friction losses and inducing erosion, corrosion, and energy waste by increasing the demand for a higher flow rate. Plugging of spray nozzles, bonding of sensors and analyzers and the wearing down of pump gland seals, scrubbers, misters, membranes, and ion exchange columns.
Rain Bird self-cleaning water filters provide the ultimate solution where dirty water is a problem.
- The filters operate on line pressure alone.
- The self-cleaning process is triggered by a pressure differential and is accomplished in seconds without interrupting the main flow.
