Power generation 

Although non-hydro renewables will grow faster than any other primary energy source, fossil-fuelled power stations will continue to contribute significantly to a demand-driven power supply. They form the basis of a working energy mix with economical energy generation and maximum grid reliability.

In conventional gas and coal-fired power plants - generating most of the electricity worldwide - product characteristics are getting more and more severe as technology is continuously changing to reduce emissions and improve efficiency.

Continuous development and focus on product and process improvements have created a range of products that provide top reliability and good long-term value in spite of high pressure drops, vibrations, tight shutoff requirements and corrosive environments.

Key Valve Technologies’ medium and high pressure gate, globe and check valves, control valves, steam conditioning valves and fluid flow control devices are used in primary and secondary power station circuits and have proven to offer top reliability for severe operating conditions in high pressure systems for boiler feed water, main steam and condensate.

Our high-pressure valves are used by plant engineering contractors, major power producers and manufacturers of turbines, HRSGs and utility boilers for power generation across the globe.

Our technically advanced and comprehensive valve programme, although ideally suited for use in fossil-fuelled power stations, also finds applications in carbon capture, district heating and renewable energy.

Details on the valves we supply for high pressure applications in power stations can be found in the products section of this website.
