There is a great deal of sensitive equipment used in nuclear power generation, making it extremely important that this equipment works effectively at all times. Any failure in instrumentation or containment in a nuclear power facility could have dire consequences. High quality, high pressure compressed air is also needed for diesel start on back-up power generators. No matter what the application for nuclear power plants, Titus has a compressed air or gas solution.
Air compressors and air dryers for nuclear power plants can have a number of important functions, which is why The Titus Company is proud to provide our array of air compressor system products and services for the nuclear power industry.
What Titus Equipment Is Relevant for Nuclear Power Plants?
Nuclear power plants need air compressors, air dryers and air filters — in large part for the purpose of producing high-quality and reliable instrument air. What is instrument air and what is instrument air used for in nuclear power plants? Read on.
What Is the Purpose of Instrument Air in Nuclear Power Plants?
Instrument air is highly purified air that has no moisture, particulates or other contaminants. It is called “instrument air” because a number of the instruments that measure the elements that nuclear power plants use to convert power into electricity — like heat exchangers, steam flow and condensate — require the use of clean, compressed air in order to accurately communicate information about levels, pressures, temperatures and flow.
The purpose of the instrument air is to allow throttling of the Air Operated Valves the system uses for flow and level control. Without the clean, compressed air that air compressors provide, the Air Operated Valves, as well as the ports of the instruments, could suffer from clogs as a result of debris, oil or moisture that commonly develop in non-purified air.
A safe, efficient nuclear power plant typically makes constant use of an efficient instrument air system to function.
