Increase efficiency and reduce emissions
Energy efficiency and emissions reduction are two sides of the same coin: precisely controlled and efficient combustion.
Balluff's magnetostrictive linear position sensors provide precise position feedback on hydraulic actuators for gas supply valves and combustion air damper/regulators and gas turbine governors.
Quick-action shutoff control valves are subject to stringent control reliability requirements. To ensure the integrity of position measurement signals, sensor redundancy is paramount. Balluff's double- or triple-redundant magnetostrictive linear position sensors provide two or three fully independent, redundant control signals from a single device.
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.
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.
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.
When it comes to power switches, it is important to get exact data on the time characteristics of the switching movement: for startup, maintenance work or in-process. Magnetically coded measurement systems handle this reliably. This allows you to detect damage early or even prevent it.
