Power generation that uses conventional steam thermal expansion into turbines is still the most diffused and traditional method to produce the main demand of power for industrial activities and civil applications. From coal to natural gas, fossil fuels account for the majority of power generation around the world.
PDC provides solutions for managing control valves and dampers, steam, and water isolation valves to meet the most stringent requirements and keep our customer’s power generation facilities running smoothly, safely and efficiently.
PDC’s products meet the needs of traditional power stations providing energy efficient and cost-effective flow control solutions that help plants meet and exceed modern regulations.
PDC actuators – including electric, pneumatic, and hydraulic – have been designed to operate in extreme environments, including severe vibration, high temperature and dust in the atmosphere.
Our products control many key areas in power plants, preventing excess emissions and managing the temperatures and pressures within the plants, as well as enabling the efficiency of burn and preventing wastage of fuel.
Renewable resources that already use thermal conversion like solar farms, geothermal applications may require specialized valves that are included in PDC production range. Conventional plants need to improve efficiency and reduce emissions trough a progressive increase of operating temperatures and pressures. Therefore, valves, turbines, and other pressure containing parts need to evolve using materials and production methods that improve resistance to creep phenomena, improve endurance strength and guarantee reliable functionality for the expected life at new challenging operating conditions. PDC, thanks to advanced design & production methodology, can provide a full range of valve demands for power generation (conventional & improved thermal cycles, including renewable resources &related applications).
Our specialist knowledge means that we can customize the range of solutions that we offer, dependent on the industry and application or customer requirements. Whether you are a producer of chemicals for use as lubricants, adhesives or battery and fuel cells; a mining company; a manufacturer of iron, steel or aluminum materials; a producer of paper, glass or cement; or part of the wider manufacturing industry, PDC can help you meet your goals!
