Generator Auto-Degas System
Reduction in plant staffing levels is a growing concern in the industry and is placing a premium on efficient execution of all tasks and activities. Additionally, there are inherent safety risks associated with deploying personnel to perform a manual purge of the generator during emergency situations.
E/One’s Generator Gas Manifold (GGM) can be configured to include an Auto-Purge feature that automates the generator purge process. A series of actuated ball valves are integrated into the GGM piping that, when initiated by the DCS, will quickly and safely de-gas and purge the generator with either CO2 or Argon gas (whichever gas is used by the plant). Optional CO2 vaporizers (sold separately) can be provided to speed up the CO2 purging process and prevent the formation of dry ice in the pipework.
