Filtration of cooling and sealing water for hydroelectric power plants

With the use of river water to cool turbines in hydroelectric power plants, fouling, pipe damage and heat exchange surface issues can arise due to the different particle sizes present.

To combat this, BOLLFILTER automatic self-cleaning strainers provide an effective cooling and sealing water filtration that lowers maintenance costs while ensuring the longevity of the turbine’s bearings and seals.

The aquaBoll® has been installed in power plants all around the world, as it removes potentially damaging particulates from the raw river water and keeps the generator and turbine running smoothly. This system operates continuously and requires no regular cleaning or maintenance for efficient cooling and sealing water filtration.
