Hydropower industry

Hydropower technology is known as environmentally friendly and pollution free pattern for energy generation. However, it still represents a certain level of risk for the environment because of the high volume of hydraulic oil, lubricating oil and grease is utilized with different functions:

  • Equalize hub pressure to the outside water pressure (protection of the turbine hub and internal mechanism)
  • Many of the driving and positioning functions are obtained by hydraulic systems
  • Lubrication of the moving components

Sealfluid industry sector: hydropower industryAs there is an increasing demand on water quality preservation and water pollution prevention can be observed, it generates interest to provide safer and leak-free operations of the hydraulic systems and cylinders in the hydropower plants. Higher performance, long lasting sealing solutions will assist to improve reliability and trouble free-operation, expanding the intervals between equipment maintenance, overhauls.

SealFluid and FP offer a diverse and specialized selection of fluid power sealing solutions specifically designed to increase safety, improve reliability and prolong life time of the hydraulic applications in the hydropower industry sector.
