An industry supplier for more than 70 years, Gardner Denver has enabled power stations to adapt quickly to changing market and environmental requirements. We provide proven application expertise and the latest pumping and flow control technologies to lead plants through changing grid demands, implement complex system upgrades, improve energy efficiency and meet the planet's growing need for smarter power generation.
Fossil fuel and nuclear power plants use two-stage liquid ring vacuum pumps and ejector systems to remove air and non-condensable gasses from the steam space of condensers, maintaining condenser back pressure to operate at maximum efficiency and heat rate.
Products: Blowers and vacuum pumps, liquid ring vacuum pumps and compressors, steam jet ejectors, engineered systems
Applications: Condenser exhausting, condenser initial evacuation (hogging), turbine gland exhausting
Today’s power stations use flow control systems to remove waste from process fluids and regulate operating temperatures, helping plants run continuously, more efficiently and with maximum power availability.
Products: Liquid ring vacuum pumps and compressors, steam jet ejectors, engineered systems, blowers and vacuum pumps
Applications: Vacuum deaeration, water box priming, geothermal gas removal, bed combustion fluidization, flue gas desulfurization
Compressed air offers a safe and reliable medium to convey hazardous materials, such as the fly ash produced in coal combustion and the reactor rods used for nuclear power. Liquid ring vacuum pumps are used in negative pressure fly ash pneumatic conveying systems to ensure minimal leakage and environmental exposure.
Products: Oil-free compressors, oil-lubricated compressors, liquid ring vacuum pumps and compressors, steam jet ejectors, engineered systems
Applications: Hazardous material handling, reactor rods, fly ash conveying
