Combined Cycle

Valve solutions for quick startups in the combined cycle power plant.

Process flow diagram showing a typical combined cycle power plant. With the integration of two powerful movers – both gas turbine engine and steam turbine engine – the combined cycle power plant has the capacity to produce tremendous amounts of power on short notice with its quick start-up time. Quick start-ups, however, can be brutal on a turbine valve population and ultimately cause the breakdown of surface coatings and destroy packing arrangements.

MOGAS understands the unique challenges of the combine cycle plant and has done extensive research at plant sites to better understand how the thermal power cycle affects turbine valve components. It was realized that the mechanically bonded coatings, such as HVOF applied Chrome Carbide, had a tendency to crack and flake off causing leak-by and possibly lock-up. Innovations were then made to fuse our coating to the base material creating a metallurgical bonded coating. Since this, we have enjoyed flawless performance and extended longevity.
