By way of advanced technologies the use of geothermal energy, for example for power generation, gains more and more in importance. ARCA Regler, Tönisvorst/ Germany already realized several projects at home and abroad in the innovative field of geothermal energy and successfully faces the new control challenge.
For these projects turbine bypass valves and for the succeeding re-liquidation required pump bypass valves for a cavitation free operation were necessary. Special requirements with the turbine bypass valves have been the low noise version and the compact design. The high control range for diverse operation modes in connection with very short regulating times have been especially considered.
To direct the energy promptly along the turbine and thereby relieve pressure low-noise, is the task of the turbine bypass valves. By the Arca- constructed valve of the ECOTROL® series type 6N that comes with a multi-stage parabolic plug and integrated silencer, this has been realized.
The use of geothermal energy for power generation as well as heat supply is a regenerative, independent alternative to conventional technologies such as nuclear energy, coal, gas and oil. The predicted growth rates for geothermal energy are excellent and offer a huge potential. Annual growth rates of more than 15-20% are predicted from inside the industry.
