Dehumidifier package prevents power station from oxidising

When an independently owned and previously offline power station took the first steps towards recommissioning its facility, Andrews Dehumidification Hire were called in to help preserve their gas turbines.

The stations equipment was required to stay dry in order to prevent oxidising which would cost the customer thousands of pounds. Our specialists went to site to calculate the drying duty required, eventually proposing that our client hire five 110V DS40 Desiccant dehumidifiers – pairing each of the units to a gas turbine to maximise efficiency.

Andrews Dehumidification keep power station online

If power stations are subjected to damp conditions while temporarily shut down, turbines, piping and other valuable equipment immediately become susceptible to corrosion and oxidising. This will have a huge impact on machinery and its workability once a power plant is recommissioned, but with our expertise you can easily avoid this undesirable scenario.
