Temperature Control Valves for Power Generation
Reliable temperature control for power plants and engine generators
The world depends on electricity for every aspect of modern life, but most people spend little time thinking about it – until it doesn’t work. Power plant operators and those who rely on back up emergency power depend on equipment that starts quickly and operates efficiently, and that begins with controlling the equipment’s vital fluids.
Our robust thermostatic control valves install easily and require little maintenance, so you can be sure they’ll continue to work during critical applications. When temperature fluctuations require flexible temperature adjustment, AMOT Model G Actuated valves are the answer. AMOT G valves can increase output and decrease warm up time by providing tight temperature control.
AMOT products optimize power generation equipment in many different applications.
Fast Response Gen Sets
When the power goes out, sometimes it’s more than just an inconvenience. For businesses, productivity comes to a halt costing time and money. For facilities that provide critical care or lifesaving services to the public, the costs can be much higher. AMOT Actuated G valves help decrease ramp up time by allowing for flexible temperature control that adjusts to wide temperature swings and the unpredictable nature of this application.
Combined Heat & Power
Also known as cogeneration, combined heat and power (CHP) captures the residual heat from electricity production and converts it to thermal energy for other uses, such as space heating, cooling and industrial processes. Temperature control valves in this application provide efficiency, environmental, and economic benefits.
Nuclear Facility Certified Valves
Emergency Diesel Generators (EDGs) are the primary means of supplying electricity to nuclear plants in the event of an emergency power grid shut down. They are a vital piece of equipment, but their components require a complex set of testing and validation before they are allowed in a nuclear facility. AMOT can supply the necessary documentation certifying our valves for use in a nuclear power facility, including ASTM Nuclear Component Certification (N Stamps), Ultrasonic Testing of Castings, and X-Rays of Castings.
Base Load and Spinning Reserve Power Generation
Steam turbines are the workhorses of power plants and provide base load electricity, often running 24/7. When electricity demands exceed the capacity of base load equipment, power plants rely on spinning reserve gas turbines to fill the gaps. To ensure maximum running time and reliable productivity of both, plant operators turn to durable, dependable AMOT temperature control valves to maintain temperature of their lube oil circuit.
