Temperature and pressure instruments for power equipment and systems

Applications of Measurement and Monitoring Technology

Today, the global power industry is faced with the challenge of developing a solution that accommodates the rising demand for a reliable and flexible source of energy without increasing operational emissions or costs. One method industry professionals rely on to achieve and maintain effective and efficient operations is integrating temperature and pressure instruments into their power generation and distribution equipment. This measurement and monitoring technology allows them to identify if and when their systems require modifications to improve their performance. 

At Ashcroft, our measuring and monitoring solutions find application in a variety of power generation and distribution equipment, including, but not limited to, the following:

Gas-fired power plants operate under stringent regulations due to volatile, high-risk conditions. Pressure monitoring is critical for turbine and steam generation operations, while boilers, combustion, denitrification, and heat recovery systems must be closely watched for temperature fluctuations. Our 5503 and 5509 differential pressures units are ideal for applications involving low in. H2O differential or high static pressures. They feature an all stainless steel construction and IP 65 Ingress protection class rating for safe and reliable performance.

Ashcroft: Your Single-Source Solution

At Ashcroft, we offer measurement and control instruments suitable for use in power equipment and systems, ranging from large-scale, on-the-grid power plants to individual, off-the-grid power stations. Over our 165 years in business, we’ve earned the trust of industry professionals across the world with our quality products and services.

Our focus on safety drives us to ensure our instruments protect people, processes and profits. Additionally, we strive to develop innovative solutions that provide protection in all areas of the plant, even for the most critical processes and applications. Equipped with extensive engineering experience and market knowledge, we can design, develop, manufacture, test, and calibrate instrument solutions tailored to virtually any customer need. For example, we supply resistance thermometer detectors (RTDs) and thermocouples for heaters, generators, pumping stations, and other power system elements.

Importance of Measurement and Monitoring Technology for the Power Industry

As indicated above, power industry professionals are challenged to find a way to establish a dependable, eco-friendly, and low-cost energy supply that meets the rapidly growing consumer demand. Measurement and monitoring instruments help bring them closer to overcoming this challenge by ensuring power equipment achieves and maintains optimal performance. However, the technology employed must be durable and reliable enough to withstand the harsh operating conditions characteristic of power generation and distribution facilities.

By integrating our high-quality temperature and pressure instruments in power equipment, industry professionals benefit from the following:
