With demand for reliable power ever increasing, the power generation industry has an expanding need for clean, reliable compressed air. At the same time, power generation is challenged to adapt to industry regulations with new processes to reduce carbon dioxide and harmful emissions. A clean, reliable source of compressed air makes power generation processes run efficiently, with minimal maintenance.
Reducing downtime helps power generation plants keep up with demand. Smooth operation requires a compressed air system designed for easy on-site maintenance, with volume flows and pressure ranges tailored to the requirements of the power generation plant. An air compressor with long operating life and minimal maintenance translates into lower overall operating costs as well. A reliable source of compressed air provides the clean and consistent air supply needed to keep the power plant online.
Compressed air systems play a role in many power generation applications. Compressors remove sulfur dioxide from exhaust (flue gas desulfurization), ease conveying and material handling, and govern air operated control valves and cylinders. Compressed air may also be used in power generation for starting and purging air, cooling turbines, nitrous oxide (NOx) treatment, removing fuel residues, fuel gas boosting, desulphurization, and soot blowing. Each application of compressed air in power generation brings an opportunity to reduce downtime and increase overall power generation efficiency.
