Flow Control Solutions for Power Plants

Flowrox products are ideal for demanding flow control solutions for power plants and filtration found in coal-fired power plants, bio-gas generation, biomass and waste consumption. Flowrox has over 4 000 successful installations in over 200 power plants around the world.

Common challenges

In a process environment, where some of the most corrosive, scalable and otherwise demanding medias  (e.g. lime and ash) are present, technical challenges in filtration and flow control are common. Any lightweight flow control equipment can easily cause continuous maintenance and even risk the stability of the whole process. Filtration systems must run at their best to avoid troublesome operations or even safety risks.

Despite these challenges, operators must ensure constant and safe power generation. The performance of any process starts with the equipment and when it comes down to corrosive, abrasive and demanding conditions, right equipment choice really matters.

Flowrox solution

To achieve high process efficiency, it is important to select suitable and properly sized equipment for the right application. Conventional valves and pumps work well in many general applications, but when it comes to corrosive, abrasive and tough conditions, a lot of them fail. That is where Flowrox heavy duty valves and pumps step in. They are designed to withstand demanding conditions and can handle corrosive and abrasive media. The initial costs are quickly covered which makes them an excellent long-term investment in the process. Flowrox Filter Press (FP) has a great process design which results in fully automatic, trouble-free operation. While ensuring safety, the filter excels in performance and high availability.
