Power Generation Industry

 

Engines, Compressors, Turbines

Temperature monitoring in today’s sophisticated engines is paramount for proper ECM operation to ensure high fuel efficiency and low emissions levels.  Durex Industries employs a variety of temperature sensing technologies such as thermocouples, RTDs, thermistors, and IC temperature sensors for use in its EGT, Turbo EGT, coolant, oil, air and head temperature sensors.

Gen-Sets & Compressors

In addition to engine temperature sensors, Durex also supplies high-reliability cold weather electric heaters and cold start aid heaters.  Whether freeze protection or condensation prevention or just maintaining warm start conditions to allow engine cranking, we have you covered!  We supply fluid warming solutions for lube oil and fuel, intake air, and gas heating, as well as basic battery warmers and other component warming solutions.

Exhaust Aftertreatment Systems

Durex custom designs and manufactures rugged exhaust gas temperature sensors used with Cat, DPF and SCR De-NOx systems.  We use similar technologies to EGT and TEGT sensors for engines in order to ensure long life in contaminated and high vibration environments.  We also provide DPF regen electric heaters as well as electric ignitor heaters.  SCR De-NOx systems solutions include exhaust preheating, DEF fluid warming as well as IC or thermistor sensors to sense DEF reservoir temps.

Cold Weather Products

Durex custom designs and manufactures high-reliability cold weather electric heaters and cold start aid heaters for Engines, Gen-Sets, Compressors, and other rotating equipment.  Whether freeze protection or condensation prevention or just maintaining warm enough temperatures to allow engine cranking, we have the thermal solution!  We supply fluid warming solutions for lube oil and fuel, intake air, and gas heating, as well as basic battery warmers and other component warming solutions.

Power Plants

Durex provides heating, temperature sensing, and temperature control solutions throughout dedicated power plants – whether diesel block plants, gas turbine or coal-fired plants.

We supply solutions upstream of the combustion zone such as fuel storage tank heating, and fuel gas and fuel oil preheating.

We supply solutions downstream of combustion zone such as flue gas preheating for SCR De-NOx systems, ammonia/urea heating and air dilution heating systems.

We also supply ancillary warming systems such as fuel storage tank and water storage tank heating, SCR catalyst dehumidification, etc.

Test Stands

Development of new engine technologies, as well as proper factory test of manufactured engines, requires high reliability, precision temperature sensors and electric heaters to ensure accurate test results and long service life with minimal decalibration.  Durex has many years of experience in supplying the leading labs and manufacturers of diesel engines in North America with temperature sensor probes, heating probes, wraps, and wire.
