Power Generation

FOR DECADES NOW, Sauer compressors have been operating reliably in power plants of all types throughout the world, regardless of whether they operate continuously or in start /stop mode.

At the same time, the volume flows and pressure ranges are tailored to suit the specific needs of our customers. Infact, Sauer is always happy to take into account customers’ individual requirements and is able to cater to (virtually) any request.

ELGI Sauer customers benefit from the following advantages

  • The very latest compressors, control systems, compressed-air treatment systems and accessories
  • Optimum customer services starting with the initial enquiry and extending over the entire life of the product
  • 100% compressor check at final pressure
  • Long operating life with guaranteed availability of replacement parts
  • Turn-key solutions produced in accordance with customers’ specifications
  • Customer-specific documentation and calculations
  • Trouble-free operation, even under the most extreme conditions (55°C ambient temperature)
  • Individual, customer-oriented service concepts

Diesel-engine generators

Diesel-engine generators (also known as gen-sets) consist of a diesel engine and a generator. Given that they provide an independent means of generating electricity, they are popular choices at production sites in remote areas or as emergency power supplies for major banks, hospitals, airports and even entire towns or cities. Indeed, a number of countries and island states produce majority of their electricity, using diesel-engine generators.

Steam power plants, coal-fired power plants, waste incineration facilities

In steam power plants, the thermal energy contained in water vapour is used to power a steam turbine, which in turn drives the generator. In the process, conventional fuels such as oil, natural gas, hard coal or brown coal are used to fire the steam boiler. In coal-fired power plants, coal is the only fuel used, whereas waste incineration facilities can also use treated waste, in order to generate electricity.

Hydroelectric power plants and other hydroelectric facilities

In hydroelectric power plants, the mechanical energy of the water is converted into electrical current using turbines and generators connected to them. Considering that the effective head varies, a distinction is made between low, medium and high-pressure power plants. Similarly, there are run-of-river plants as well as storage plants (including pumped-storage plants), depending on the way in which the available water is used.

What are ELGI Sauer Compressors used for?
  • Braking air for pneumatic brakes
  • Adjusting turbine blades and large valves (e. g. governor)
  • Blowing air (blowing out the water to eliminate the load during starting)
  • Preventing pulsation and cavitation

Nuclear power plants, atomic power plants

Although they belong to the group of steam power plants, nuclear power plants are mentioned here separately, as they obtain the energy they need to heat steam through splitting atoms rather than by burning fossil fuels.
