ISO Cleanliness Guidelines for Hydraulic & Lube Oils

Studies show that approximately half of lost machine life is due to mechanical wear and approximately 80% of mechanical wear is caused by particle contamination in the oil. When oil is kept clean, wear rates go down and component service life goes up.

The Important Role of Differential Pressure Sensors in Hydroelectric Power Generation

In hydroelectric power generation, dirt and debris in the intake water can shorten the lifetime of turbine blades. Filters inside intake pipes trap the debris so that only sediment-free water hits the blades. A differential pressure sensor/transducer measures the flow on both sides of the filter, and will alert plant operators when the filter is dirty and needs to be replaced.

Temperature, Pressure, and Flow Measurement for Monitoring Performance in Power Plant Turbines

Flow measurement, along with measuring temperature and pressure, are critical for optimal operation in gas and steam turbines. If these parameters do not stay within appropriate ranges, a power plant will suffer from issues with safety, performance, and efficiency. WIKA USA has the ability to provide instrumentation to monitor barometric pressure, temperature and flow of exhaust gas, and much more.
