Aging steam valve actuation can result in difficulty synchronizing, an inability to dispatch the unit effectively, and even disabled functionality of the unit. EthosEnergy can revive MHC or EHC units with new actuation solutions and return operational flexibility.
Several different solutions are available. Depending upon the application, electric actuators, low pressure hydraulics, or high pressure hydraulics, these solutions range from cost effective pilot valve actuation to direct acting individual operators.
Actuation upgrades don’t only apply to governor and throttle valves. Steam seal regulators commonly exhibit problems during turbine startup and can be replaced with modern valves and controls.
