Edwards Highlights Role of Liquid Ring Pumps in Maximising Efficiency of Steam Turbines

May 2, 2014 - Crawley, England, United Kingdom

Edwards Limited is highlighting the benefits liquid ring pumps can bring to the power industry at Power-Gen India, May 5 – 7, 2014 in New Delhi, India. Edwards is an approved supplier to major Indian customers, and is able to offer local applications expertise, full installation, service and site commissioning support locally. Edwards is now owned by Atlas Copco, and so will benefit from Atlas Copco’s larger footprint in India to further develop their local presence.


Power-Gen India and Central Asia is the region’s premier conference and exhibition for the power industry, and visitors to the Edwards booth will have the opportunity to chat with application experts about the right vacuum solutions for their power generation needs; liquid ring pumps provide the optimum solution for many applications in the power industry.


Edwards’ liquid ring vacuum pumps play a vital role in maximising the efficiency of steam turbines. Edwards condenser air extraction packages, based on two-stage liquid ring vacuum pumps, are designed to remove system air leakage in turbine generator steam condensers. Liquid ring pumps can help make significant contributions to the control of emissions when they are used on vacuum filters in flue gas desulphurisation systems. The ability to handle wet gases without any detrimental effect makes liquid ring pumps ideal for condenser waterbox priming applications, and their tolerance to ash carry over makes them suitable for fly ash handling applications.


“We have been partnering with the Indian power industry for over a decade now with several successful installations around the country. We are delighted to be at the Power-Gen India event again to demonstrate our solutions for the power generation industry”, said Vikrant Sanglikar, Country Head - South Asia for Edwards.


Edwards supplies full factory acceptance tests including saturated air test capability, and offers compliance with stringent global, regional and industry standards. Standard pump packages can be configured to suit specific client requirements.
