Kelvion will present heat exchangers for energy supply in solar thermal power plants at the Power-Gen Europe & Renewable Energy World conference in Europe next week.
The company will showcase performance-enhancing solutions for steam power plants: for example, feed-water preheaters and condensing systems such as surface condensers and air cooled condensers.
These condensing systems are designed to recover the exhaust steam from its vapour to its liquid state at certain under atmospheric pressure, and also, to remove non-condensable gases present in the steam cycle. These solutions achieve optimal energy yield and maximum efficiency.
Kelvion manufactures customized package solutions for each particular customer’s needs including thermal and mechanical design, basic and detail engineering, procurement, manufacturing, testing, delivery and commissioning of turbine exhaust steam condensing units, and their materials are selected depending on the environment.
The standard supply includes condenser (surface condenser or air cooled condenser), steam duct (including compensator), steam dump connection, flash tank, vacuum unit system, as well as pressure-safety devices (rupture disc and relief valve).
The complete solution encompasses the condensate pump system, the control system, and a pipe-cleaning system (only for surface condensers). In addition, the Kelvion product portfolio includes heat exchangers for heat recovery from exhaust gas or steam, and for supply of district heat from cogeneration plants.
Solutions for fuel or air preheating, as well as for cooling of generators and transformers, are also part of the Kelvion offering of products.
The product portfolio is rounded off in the power plant field by coolers for extraction of surplus heat, oil coolers for power plant turbines, and coolers for closed water cycles.
