Many power companies are turning to Omegasonics’ ultrasonic tanks to clean turbine parts faster and ensure high-availability. Electric and gas companies are relied upon to produce and provide uninterrupted power to their customers.
To accomplish this goal, keeping turbines exceptionally clean and in good condition must be a top priority. There are more and more power and utility companies relying on Omegasonics and ultrasonic cleaning to wash turbine parts faster and more efficiently.
Ultrasonic Cleaners for Utility Companies
The alternative method to cleaning these types of parts via ultrasonics is to wash each by hand with the use of toxic solvents. This takes more than double the time compared to using an ultrasonic cleaner. Thankfully, ultrasonic technology can clean both gas-powered, hydro turbine parts, and solar turbine fuel nozzles with much less time and hassle.
One recent example involves the Southern California Gas Company, the nation’s largest natural gas distribution utility. They use several Omegasonic ultrasonic cleaning systems inside their natural gas processing plants. Currently, they employ several Omegasonics Power Pro 8000’s to effectively clean parts from gas compressor engines during routine maintenance.
By switching to ultrasound, Southern California Gas, along with many other power plants across the nation, are able to extend the life of turbine, engine and compressor parts, reduce scheduled downtimes, and improve on their delivered production. Because of this, personnel can spend less time on mundane maintenance and more time on more important tasks… like providing safe and reliable energy to 20.9 million consumers in more than 500 communities!
