Proven precision for the highest demands

Efficient and environmentally friendly combustion processes in conventional power plants require turbines and generators that can be controlled with high accuracy. The requirements for accuracy are extremely high here, and Balluff sensors have been developed for the tough demands of applications.

Application examples

  • Controlling valves

    Simple and reliable valve control with redundant transducers

    The solution

    Quick-action shutoff control valves are subject to the highest safety requirements which can only be met by a redundant system. We have therefore compactly integrated up to three independent measurement sections and three independent electronics systems in one rod in our BTL 7 magnetostrictive linear position sensor.

    The robust, contact-free and absolute position measurement system is freely configurable. Another major advantage: Thanks to its compact dimensions, the system can easily replace already installed, non-redundant position measurement systems. Startpoints and endpoints can be set comfortably with a computer. Parameter sets are easy to apply. For you, this means that startup is fast and uncomplicated.

    The features

    • Maximum reliability thanks to 2 or 3 completely separate systems in one housing
    • Also suitable for large valves – with a measuring range of up to 7620 mm
    • Compact, space-saving housing
    • Fast startup
    • Wear and maintenance-free thanks to contact-free working
    • Monitoring of all channels via LEDs

  • Exact closure verification of flaps

    Guarantee the perfect flap closing

    The solution

    Flaps are used in all areas of power plants to control gases and fumes. Robust hydraulic cylinders with the BTL magnetostrictive linear position sensor reliably open and close the flaps and support safe operation of the power plant.

    The features

    • Wide temperature range for outdoor use
    • Can be installed in the cylinders
    • Reliable

  • Reliable conveyor belt monitoring

    Control harsh conditions

    The solution

    Harsh conditions are typical for conveyor belt systems in power plants. Optical sensors in the rugged housing are ideally protected to ensure reliable monitoring of the conveyor belts. As an option they can be fitted with an air nozzle to keep the optics from becoming contaminated.

    The features

    • Protection from heat, dust, moisture (IP69 K)
    • Optional air nozzle for cleaning
    • Optional air or water cooling
    • Also available as Ex-version

  • Monitoring coal mills

    Continuous monitoring of the rollers

    The solution

    In coal mills the rollers are subject to wear or can be damaged by foreign bodies in the actual material. Ensure continuous monitoring of the rollers with the BTL profile style magnetostrictive linear position sensor. This ensure reliable operation of your coal mill.

    The features

    • Easy to install
    • Also simple to retrofit
    • Cost-effective solution
