CASE STUDY – QUICK DELIVERY PREVENTS DELAYS FOR POWER STATION

 

 

The Project

The end user needed to replace an existing actuated valve in operation on an isolation steam valve application due to general wear and tear. Isolation valves are a key component in any fluid system as they are used to stop the flow of fluid into a particular area of the system.

Unfortunately, with the expected like for like replacement not due until after an already scheduled shutdown, the end user was forced to look for alternatives.

Site Overview
The site is a Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) Power Plant located in South East Asia. The CCGT Power Plant has a design capacity of 100 MW comprising of 3 units, with the first unit commissioned in 2006 and the last in 2007.

Sector: Power

Category: Power Plant

Products: Limitorque LPS Pneumatic Actuator

   

The Project
The end user needed to replace an existing actuated valve in operation on an isolation steam valve application due to general wear and tear. Isolation valves are a key component in any fluid system as they are used to stop the flow of fluid into a particular area of the system.

Unfortunately, with the expected like for like replacement not due until after an already scheduled shutdown, the end user was forced to look for alternatives.

The Solution
Acrodyne were contacted to offer an alternative and were pleased to offer a Limitorque LPS pneumatic actuator. Due to the speed of delivery the end user was able to bring its much needed shutdown forward by 3 months.

The actuator was custom mounted to a 6” valve, ACROMATIC switchbox, ACROMATIC regulator and RGS IECEx solenoid valve attached via a custom plate and piping kit.

The Result
The customer was extremely pleased as the speed of the project from procurement to supply was well within the agreed time frame. Also being purchased as a complete package, the customer had minimal fuss during the installation process.
